Summer Vacation by JamesLedgerConcepts Summer Vacation by JamesLedgerConcepts
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).

Socializing is soooo last week pinkypoos! Also, fat is the new size zero. Tickets to all the attractions sell out years in advance, because there is only one attraction. It's beautifully cold!

Reminds me of my vacation in Edinburgh. I love the lightning--was that all done by hand or did you use some kind of tool to make it like that?

Thanks SC - I used a free custom lightning brush and then squashed it up. Also added some glow.

It's really amazing. What I really hate about this is that I can see this happening in the future... A grim world where humanity has cast away reality in favor of a virtual existence...

That's great - thanks dod. Just wish I could earn money from all this art as there is very few sparadic studios here in the UK that insist on Degree level qualification and 8 years gaming/film experience. When I apply they never reply even when I contact them. Internet work doesn't pay - working for a client in another country is a 100% gamble as contracts under one million dollars are clearly not gonna be taken seriously by a small claims court. The art world is a rip-off world.

This is very well done. In addition, I would totally like to send out vacation postcards that had this picture on them and said "Wish You Were Here."

:iconjamesledgerconcepts:
JamesLedgerConcepts Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
That's a fantastic idea!! Go for it - the picture is not restricted in any way as it is practice work available to anyone to do with as they wish. I am not precious about practice work. Just let me know if you sell millions and I can kick myself in the balls! Seriously, there is no copyright issues with it.
