The Depths by fmacmanus The Depths by fmacmanus
Second piece in the Dune project.
The main character ventures into the city unseen by guards- there is noone roaming the street after curfew. The light from the Harkonnen's palace illuminates the city with a blinding glare, reminding all those who reside of the rulers and their harsh power.

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-03-01
The Depths by fmacmanus is a Sci-Fi piece with extraordinary use of detail, color and perspective. The bridges that cross the scene really add something special to the composition as well. With the main character highlighted in a subtle glow, it evokes a sense of a grand adventure that is just about to start, and it’s a story I’d be interested in following to the end!

This is absolutely well done. The sheer amount of detail you put into this painting is astronomical, especially with the buildings and the perspective, which gives the tower in the background a very powerful, imposing appearance, along with the detail in the foreground. The color scheme also very well reflects the oppressive, dark appearance of the palace.
There is so much smaller detail to look at that I can be sure I have missed on this look-through.

Congratulations on receiving a Daily Deviation! I can see why. :D

Gorgeous detail all within the structures. The lighting is intensely superb, I really like the angle too. It add great depth to the whole painting along with the help of the dark contrasts. :clap:

Dark, intriguing, and very well done! :D The color contrast between the complementary oranges and blues makes this an interesting work, as most sci-fi pieces lean more towards desaturated/dim/dark tones. The little details are great, and the initial design is original as well as fun to look at!

Keep up the great work!

Very, very nice work... Great perspective, which gives a strong sense of scale, colour palette is good with a nice mix of cold and warm hues and there is just enough colour/light around the figure to draw your eye to him.

Question: What is the balance between 3d and brush work? Seem that the foreground and central aerial walkways are 3d and the rest brush? Difficult to tell what has been over-painted though!

Anyway, very nice image! Well done :-)
