Above The Clouds, Tuomas Korpi (2D)

Title: Above The Clouds
Name: Tuomas Korpi
Country: Finland
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop

The shape of a nearby Lauttasaari watertower, sky city of Star Wars and some oriental patterns inspired me with new sci-fi painting.

I started with 3dsmax by doing a simple lathe object and rendering the basic guidelines for perpective. I then started to sketch the overall mood, palette and atmosphere and after that it was mainly just straight forward painting it all in detail. I had a lot of fun with all the small details, windows, vents, little leakings, markings on the surcafe and especially with light. Finetuning the cloud tones was again an interesting challenge, and I think it turned out fine.

Feel free to throw comments and critique :)

Thumbs up

Hello Tuomas,

I really like this. I voted you a thumbs up

I like fantasy Sci-Fi painting especially ones with such emotion and feeling as this.
the subtle light reflecting off of the structures is done very well. and the loosely painted clouds are very nice too.
If I had to critique something in this picture It would be the stream of spaceships,
there very nice but the ships at the furthest distance should receive a drop in black levels and adopt the blue-gray tint levels of structure in that area.

but its only a small critique, because I love this picture. haha

Hope too see more of your work soon.

Tuomas, excellent and inspiring artwork! I'm into similar kind of illustrations myself and am always happy to see such a nice piece of artwork by a fellow artist - it definitely helps me to "recharge" my own creative "batteries".
Keep up the good work!
