View Full Version : 52 Chimneys : Concepts Art

04 April 2006, 06:04 AM
I was recently wathching a special on the History Channel about the San Francisco fire. They showed a snap shot of a few houses and something cought my eye. Most of the homes were completely turned into rubble except for their chimney, which stood as always but now very visable. I decided to paint a cityscape turned to ash with 52 chimneys standing strong. I want it to kind of look like a industrial forest, so I may have to add more chimneys, lol.

Here's my early sketch.

Heres an image I found on the web that shows off some of these chimneys.

Nice, but a little disturbing idea... i love the perspective, the colors look ok for me, keep it up

Uhm... why 52 ? The number rings a bell, but it's not properly fit lol.

Nice composition, looks promising, allthough only chimneys could be boring. Maybe try and up the drama by using a more 'fisheye-ish' perspective?

I feel like I'm staying from my path woith this one. I worked on it for a few yesterday and I felt fantasylike, thus the outcome of this update.
