09-11-2005, 09:37 AM

09-13-2005, 09:04 PM (

I have enlarge the view angle ... and change some colours ...

Hope you like it!

That's quite long to do ... ><

09-13-2005, 09:23 PM
another excellent piece, I don't know but are those are still sketches
awsome work :bounce:

09-13-2005, 09:23 PM

Unbelievable looking sketch... simply awesome work. You and Squibbit are two artists who create images with huge impact using those dramatic camera angles. I love it.

09-13-2005, 09:26 PM
Beautiful images! Very stunning! But what is your idea? Whats going to happen in this beautiful environment that you have created? Tell us! (Or is that an explosion? Is that the concept?)

09-13-2005, 09:27 PM
Wow! Thanks a lot friend !

09-13-2005, 09:59 PM
It's looking stunning so far. Nice colors and detail. And acheived so quickly, too! Is the city going to be the backdrop for something spectacular happening, or is the city all by itself the spectacular event?

Good luck (and slow down, you're making the rest of us look bad! :) )


09-13-2005, 10:23 PM
ooh yeah, awesome! Dang, you're fast!

09-13-2005, 11:09 PM
such a great angle and colours :thumbsup: i wonder waht story i behind this piece. somehow looks like a really really great mall of sorts *gg*

kepp up that great work :)

09-13-2005, 11:35 PM
this is just awseome, mon frere.
the composition is strong. the deepness, with all its details,
in contrast to the close foreground shape.
i guess u´ll work on million to twomillion pixel res on final coloring stage, hrhr^^
serious, this piece is gonna be epos, man !

09-13-2005, 11:38 PM
what can I say amazing! so many ideas so quickly and all of them spectacular the standard is so high its both inspirational and intimidating, the end result will be something special.

09-14-2005, 12:29 AM

The composition of your image is very dynamic.

Keep up your good work!

Good luck! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

09-21-2005, 12:53 AM
wow... nice....

09-21-2005, 07:45 PM
Hi Pierrick. I want to give you my opinion. you have your own Style and thats its great, but in my opinion your perspetive and colors are COOL.... but i just only 1 thing. Depth!. Your entire scene have the same intensity of light and the floor wheres that girl, don't recived a warm color. I think you can put some yellow color in the floor.

Thats all. I wish you luck.


xbo :scream:

09-22-2005, 05:57 PM
looking great, keep it up. Nice contrast and colors.

09-22-2005, 06:36 PM
Good use of color and great angle!

09-22-2005, 10:38 PM (

Thanks for your precious comment !
I have tried to add a bit more depth to my picture.

I have tried to detailed some parts. I don't know where to start!
I want to show on each litlle part of that pic, a really lot of details. Soo... that will be quite long ...

73 days left ... time is with me! I have to be patient.

Thx everybody to keep a watch on there !

09-23-2005, 01:51 AM
alil more and ur done with it~haha,keep it going mate~u have great compositional and color sense here,lov the graphical approach.:thumbsup:

09-23-2005, 06:45 AM
Hi! Your work produced a great impression on me! The very interesting foreshortening! I'd like to find myself in her place!
Good luck!

09-23-2005, 07:49 AM
Outstanding work!

09-23-2005, 08:50 AM
Interesting to see what you do next here, great looking stuff so far!:thumbsup:

09-23-2005, 03:47 PM (

Here is a version with a bigger angle, more details. ^^

09-23-2005, 04:01 PM
I think this is a great composition:thumbsup: Nice design.. it does look like an explosion of some kind instead of a sunset (which I thought it was supposed to be). Also, wondering whats going on with the vehicle in the corner. Is it flying? or is it a car jumping off a bridge or something else?

09-23-2005, 05:19 PM
Good decisions to flip the image and zoom out a bit!

09-23-2005, 08:42 PM
Hmm.. while the idea and the process r fantastic, I cant say that the fliping is a good idea. Coz most of ppl r reading (text and images) from left to right, so should be the direction of that motor going out of the pic (going to the right side as previously). but its only my opinion! :) And I think that right now, there is a bit too much empty space in the right side, I would crop it a bit on a right. once again my opinion... u just keep up that great work u r doing!

09-24-2005, 03:06 PM
Slt mec , chai pas si tu te rapelle de moi ^^ enfin.
Bon taff pour le début , continue comme ca;)


09-26-2005, 05:07 PM
awesome, n spectacular:bounce:

09-26-2005, 05:59 PM
What can I say? This sketch just looks... spectacular ;)
Very nice futuristic style and, in my opinion, you have done the right thing flipping the image.

10-03-2005, 10:06 PM (

Here is a 100% part of my pic... A bit long to detailed :)

Bye !

10-03-2005, 10:11 PM
I work on the whole pic in the same time ...

Here is a larger version :

10-04-2005, 02:32 AM
a kick ass update pierick~the strokes looks simple yet it has the detail in it!:thumbsup:keep this going,i'm digging it big time

10-04-2005, 06:52 AM
Greetings Pierrick! :) I very much like your work the space, color in general super is felt :cool: Dynamics this city of the future has really grasped me :thumbsup:
Success !
Yours faithfully LexLe :)

10-04-2005, 08:02 AM
That is alot of detail, dude great piece so far, colors are fabulous, just keep at it, holla!:thumbsup:

10-04-2005, 07:45 PM
oh my God !! keep up the good work man! this is spectacular.. it's breathtaking..really and the girl adds the grain of life needed in the picture..what can i say..the colors are perfect..the dynamic angle gives me the chills and i can only imagine how it will look when you add detail..good luck man!:buttrock:

10-06-2005, 08:18 AM
This is really looking fantastic, errr I mean Spectacular! I mean it!

The only piece of advice I offer is about the foreground girl in red. I would suggest a different pose, maybe close the legs, as a girl with that short of a skirt would probably stand, or just how women in general stand.

But seriously that was all i found that bothered me, and that is just my 2 cents.

Keep it going!

10-31-2005, 09:56 PM (

No post for a long time... I was very busy !

Anyway, the picture come back with more definition, detail and element!

Hope you like it !

Time to have a look around to see what you have done !! ;)

10-31-2005, 11:11 PM
Cool painting and colors!

11-01-2005, 09:35 AM
Strong sense of dynamism, and your city is really beautiful.
I regret only that we don't see the bike as much as before.
Anyway keep it up, man !

11-03-2005, 01:32 AM
You are good! i like it a lot! Congratulation!!!

Good luck!:thumbsup:

11-03-2005, 09:22 AM
Very effectively and dynamically! I very much like color of your work!

11-03-2005, 09:49 AM
Wow impressive work, nice depth there..

11-03-2005, 11:34 PM (

More people, more vehicle and details ...

Thanks a lot for your comments everybody !!

11-03-2005, 11:37 PM
The whole picture for the moment ...

11-04-2005, 02:15 AM
wow, you must be kidding! cant beleive i missed the whole progress of this, you done an amaazing piece and are already on the final coloring??? oh dear i'm such a snail :(
great work, bombastic set with an amazing power and fantastic and brilliant work on the light and the details. Insane bombastic! keep on rocking! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

11-04-2005, 10:26 PM (

Some new idea ...

It's more poetic. I think i prefere that way. Anyway, i have to wait some days to decide. ^^

11-05-2005, 03:05 AM
Oh wow... I wish I could draw cityscapes like that... the colors are what really draw me in, though. Overall it's really amazing!

11-05-2005, 10:57 AM
Hey Pierrick, this looks fantastic! I like style, colors and details very much. Group of characters looks great :applause:

11-05-2005, 08:13 PM
:drool: amazing Work Pierrick....

Such a lot of detail and atmosphere and yet the style is still quite loose close up.

The only small thing which may help (and this work is so good, I don't think it needs it), is as the piece is so busy, you could add a little mist / fog as you get further away, just to seperate foreground from the rest of the image. But then the chaos and detail really helps with the intensity and atmosphere, so maybe I'm talking rubbish.

Great work and sorry I didn't come across it sooner :applause: :thumbsup:

11-05-2005, 08:52 PM
:scream: It is time to finish work! So it is already too beautiful! :)

11-06-2005, 04:31 AM
nice very nice i like beautiful images like this ,

good work

11-06-2005, 03:32 PM
Awesome work man :D You're one of the potential winners in this contest already, as far as I can see. Love how the sun hits the cityscape, creating what seems to be two different times of day. I'm just not sure about those stars and moon hanging by a thread... Or maybe it's just not finished yet. Eitherway, this is truly spectacular :thumbsup:

11-06-2005, 07:22 PM
It looks amazing.. I wont mind if u will keep it that way till the end :) Really good choice of bringing the green color to the image as well!

11-06-2005, 09:31 PM
caresseh >> Great thanks !

rawwad >> Thanks ! I will probably work more on the characters during the few final day.

MrFreeman >> That' s an excellent idea ... I have hesitate to put some cloud/fog but finally, i have done it. It's on the next stage !

Sergey Banityuk >> Thanks a lot Sergey ! Your picture is amazing !! i really like the way you have coloured it !! And the idea is magic and poetic... i like it !! :thumbsup:

lynch >> Thanks to you !!

ahbeejieh >> Thanks a lot ! That idea of the stars and the moon have poping out my head. I found the idea original and a bit poetic ... It reminds me some things to make sleeping baby. And the contrast between it and the real element i put in the scene looks interresting for me. A bit magic !

NinjaASSN >> Yeah thanks !! The green touch is there to show a bit of nature and "hope" in that futuristic scene. Although all is artificial, some "piece" of nature are always there to show a kind of respect of nature. In the next step, it will be some blue flowers in the foreground right in the grass.
And Green touch is good to equalize the red intensity ! :lightbulb

Liberty, peacefull and respect !! So good to think about it ... :)

11-07-2005, 05:11 PM
Thats some crazy ass colours you got there. I simply luv it... and all the details... makes me dizzy :]

11-08-2005, 12:44 PM
amazing colors ! Some more details and it would be very good !

11-08-2005, 09:19 PM
beautifully done pierrick, most definately starting to look complete

11-08-2005, 11:06 PM
Beautiful! I love how you handle the faces! You changed the girls pose though? I thought the original was more energetic/sexier! I think you should reconsider the change.......please. Great job, keep it up!

11-09-2005, 02:34 AM
Awsome work, it has a nice Sid Mead fantacy world feel.

11-10-2005, 12:22 PM are going to kill us with this is so:drool: :drool: good luck :deal:

11-22-2005, 09:26 PM
Hello there

I think I'll make you my NUMBER ONE!

11-24-2005, 03:18 PM (

I have tried to give a more natural position to the red girl. It seems better like that ... i think.

Thanks for having shared your idea with me along the challenge.

That was a beautifull challenge ! Like all the CGTalk Challenge !!

Anyway, i was very buzy by work this last month. Hope my picture is enough finished. ^^

Good luck everybody !

11-25-2005, 09:16 AM
