Visegard Ideation by TylerEdlinArt Visegard Ideation by TylerEdlinArt

Photoshop 12-15 hrs give or take

Here is the zoomed out establishing shot of my city Visegard.
I spent another 3 hours on google earth researching plains of china and Europe. Found some interestingly inspiring places. I realized sometimes reality is better than anything you create.
Finished this a week prior to posting. Then I played the amazing game Uncharted 2 got a load of inspiration and made this 15% more epic.
Im sorry i didn't save any progress shots because I tore through this as fast as I could. Ill tell you my secret recipe for creating most of my images though:

30% concept (Have a decent idea)
-----------------------------------------------
30% Believability (ground your idea in reality so that the viewer can relate to it.)
-----------------------------------------------
30% Style (polish your idea with a creative finishing tech).
-----------------------------------------------
Finally add a dash of Epicness

Fantastic work!

If I bought a print of this, considering it's only 640px high, how would the print look?

How are you drawing the city? Zoom and paint every house individually, or have you use a brush that makes that faster?

That's a great recipe. I worldbuild a lot (some might say too much) and your approach is incredibly similar...ya know, with artistic talent and something to show after hours of work ;)

Your are doesn’t really need critique I for one just use the pictures in my head to make them as good as I want them you’re an inspiration to artists to do better to even come close to your awesomeness. Is the work done on photoshop or some other way I was just wondering since I use pencil myself and have some experience with photoshop but mostly like drawing landscapes like yours in pencil. If you realy would like a little suggestions you might not want me to criticize perfection it might make me feel bad to think it’s not good enough.
