Asian alley by MittMac Asian alley by MittMac
Another painting. or mattepainting since pictures are involved?!

I started on this one a month ago but couldn't finish it. Today I re-opened it and I call it 'finished'

The concept isn't mine, it is from a walkthrough from Gerhard Mozsi. Still I'm happy with my outcome. Maybe I'll add some flashy flying around papers to add a bit more dynamics. Maybe, next time..

This is really good. I like the depth in the perspective. And the light and shadows falls so perfectly. Well done! :)

This is very beautiful. I love that you put so much effort in the execution. Even the dark areas were something to look at. It gives me the feeling that I'm the one hiding in those shadows, and to me, it frames the lighter areas to give more emphasis to the details. I also love how realistic it looks, and yet there are brushed portions that tells you it's a painting. It's like drifting from one world to another and then going back again. :heart:

I love this, especially the dark and dreary rual-ish setting. Its intresting and moody, or maybe its the absence of moods that makes it seem so mood. To me it feels like passive-violence, but I'm also just wierd.

Those are a lot of emotions you talk about but I do think it's quite true. I kept the image dark and a bit cold. The viewer shouldn't know if somethings bad is going to happen or it's just an dark alley with normal people going to work.

Thats not entirely what I mean, I'm sorry if I offended you...
Anyways thats just how I interrpretted it, thats probably not how other people took it, just how I did. Moreover, that's how I was feeling (before I looked at it) so I probably just imagined it mirroring my emotions. Sorry if I've upset you.
