This thing was on my drive for a time too long now.
Needed to release it already.

I love this. Especially the textures and colour usage are totally on point.

@rocifier, well, it is an important part of the picture. I couldn't come up with something that can replace the bike and moving it from the focus, and leaving an empty space is not such a good idea, I think. Still, thanks.


user
rocifier (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/12/2016 00:14

Aw you kept the focus on the bike. Still, beautiful piece.


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/11/2016 03:12

@TheInquisitor, Thanks for the compliments and feedback.
The bike and the guy originally were meant to be sprites, so it turned out contrast to the background. But I don't really want to change anything right now and thinking about just leaving the picture as it is.

Really great design work with the buildings there.


user
TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/11/2016 00:01

Great work!

Actually the only bit I don't like is the bike. It looks quite pixelated and scraggy compared to the rest. I'd recommend having a second look at that, perhaps keeping it darker and anti-aliased to the horizon behind. Maybe.

Great mood and pallet. Really good job

Um...yes please! Great work!

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/8/2016 04:26

'cause I need a reason why you're so damn good. 


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/7/2016 22:51

Why do you bring up my heritage everytime, comrade Zizka?
It's not accepted here, in Mother Russia.


user
Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/7/2016 15:10

Goodamn! Looks great. Russians are taking over the world.

nice work, colors, atmosphere, small details


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/7/2016 14:21

@Redshrike, It's really a good thing. I always tried to copy some of the Helm's techniques. And it's really great to hear the comparison with such an artist.


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/7/2016 14:19

@Mandrill, tsenkz.


user

I'd say it's very atmospheric.. the ramps and  bicycle make it appear to be a bmx riders' haven


user
BertMi (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/7/2016 10:45

Amazing! I totally agree with what Manupix said about the diagonal lines. It's not exactly a mistake but it would surely look better if you used different angles of inclination in those lines. I don't have much to add because landscapes are not really my thing.

I just wanted to say I really like the colors, they worked very well together. (:


user
Redshrike (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/7/2016 09:58

For some reason this gives me a very 'Helm'-like vibe (which is always a good thing).


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/7/2016 08:11

@Manu, Wow, that's a great feedback, thanks.
I didn't know most of all, really. Will try to implement in my next pieces.
About least used colors - nice catch. Well, half of it. One of the colors is accidential indeed. Somewhere in the middle of the work I got my pencil set on 99% transparency or something like that, so there was few accidental colors. Thought I got rid of them. Nof fixed. As for hair - I added this color especially for those 2 pixels, couldn't find a fitting one in the palette.


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/7/2016 07:55

Awesome!

There are some composition weaknesses though.
Most diagonal lines // are parallel and probably too much so, a few \\ lines in the upper right corner (or top center) might add some dynamism.
The sky 'even randomness' makes it look flat, a more realistic 'perspective' might give the piece more depth.
More brighter clouds would help balance the big shadow patch on the right of the piece.

Palette nitpick: those 2 least used colors are likely accidental.
Not sure about the bike outlines.

Instant fave. I think it is plenty atmospheric and there is nothing that is obvious as needing polish, IMO.

Great work.


user
Nether (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/6/2016 22:38

I honestly think it doesn't need polishing at all. Fantastic work!


user
Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/6/2016 21:07

@philippejugnet, Thanks. Surely it could. Everything can be polished more, but I've been working on it for more than 2 months (in a veeery slow pace), so wanted to finish.


user
Wolfenoctis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/6/2016 20:17

It's finally done, great stuff


user
philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/6/2016 20:07

Lovely scene. I just think it could have been more atmospheric somehow.

Beautiful! O_O <3
