All painted in photoshop. High speed concept. This image is a personal project, so doesn't belong to anyone else, i.e. a client. The full license to this image is £20 ($30).
Depicts a futuristic tourist location during the summer. The shuttle runs from the airport to the city center.
If you think summer looks grim, you should see winter.
Vacations have gone out of fashion - people prefer to go on virtual vacations and have virtual relationships online.
No references used. All created from my imagination. No custom brushes, no photo refs, no paint-overs. Texture was achieved by using a default chalk brush in Photoshop. Lightning was drawn with a default hard brush and stretched.
This is a very loose concept. Completed in a few hours (there were no revisions). The cost for a similar image from scratch would be about £80 ($125).
