This is a marvelous! the intricate detailing, lighting and atmosphere is truly inspirational! I too spend ages on my work, detail has always been something I strive for, and just like you mentioned in one of your comments, I also make my artworks huge, deliberately so, that way I can create detailed work that's good for printing. Btw, this piece deserves more attention!
That's just fucking tight... uhmm, your comment is good or not? I usually work in a 16:9 format but this time was set to a size. Yes, maybe everything is too tight, but at first I did not draw the tank Koma. Indeed the design has been selected for the Ballistic book Exposé 9 (the reason of this size)
Lololol, yea... sorry xD I see you're from Spain... I'll try to explain... Umm... Saying "fucking" before something like, "Wow, that's cool," basically enhances the "cool" in the sentence, making the compliment like, more powerful? o3o While "fuck" is generally a negative thing to say, using it to add strength to a description makes it... better? xDDD Do you understand? Nonetheless, it's a VERY awesome picture!
Oh, and tight is slang for like, "awesome" or "cool," but generally means MORE than "cool" or something...
Sorry for confusing you... I use a lot of slang .-.
If not for google translator, word reference etc would be lost. I get lost with slang or colloquial English, my level is quite low, especially when I want to explain something. "Cool",also use those terms, even in Spanish when we speak of good things: !oh eso es muy cool" very funny!! Unfortunately, my bad English is a fucking shit for me, I try to fix that... Thank you for explain me this!!!
Hello!!! The Koma-Tank.......you see......There are many layers in the illustration, many, many layers,(more or less 250) many of them are reflections of sky,sparks, smoke, particles, or other effects, color gradations etc, which also affects the figure of the girl, so.... it is impossible clean only the figure of the tank, only draw what you see, if perhaps a 3D model ...maybe, but in 3D is the same, you work only can you see. Behind the girl is...nothing, just a clean space and empty!! Greetings!!!!!!!!!
It is a lot of work.....bffff.......the mechas, mechanical artifacts are a torture for me, too many detailed,(the original is made for 600 points of resolution and the size is 7221 X 5315 pixels) so, what you see is very very small. when I finished the concept, my hand really hurts...and I will not repeat the same theme, sorry!! (You can see right now a fragment of the illustration to real size!)
