Rusty City by JamesLedgerConcepts Rusty City by JamesLedgerConcepts
This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. If you wish to use it, please contact me first.

Very quick, rough city painting. All done from scratch in photoshop. I used the default round brush and spent about 1 hour blocking in random shapes. No references used.

This is a very loose concept indeed. To create something similar would be about 50 ($80).

Photoshop.

The style here is almost abstract. It's great!

Nice work! You really know your city structure well! Even if they are just rough shapes, it's easy to tell what everything is ^^

Thanks again - yes, I prefer cities and structures over characters and vehicles etc.

Sure :) Yeah, that's the opposite of me lol...I'm better at characters, not so much at environments of any kind. You've got a gift ^^

Good question - I am not entirely sure, as I was a novice at the time and what came out, came out!
