wow, I'm still lovin' it. excellent render of the lights an colors.
Can you tell us what did you use to make it ? tools (brush or feltpen of custom brush) and for the lights (spray ?). Different layers ? thanks :rolleyes:

Thanks. Ogside: standard round brush, with auto-dry on. I always try and stick to one brush type, just varying the size as needed - it's a lot quicker! (This piece was done start-to-finish, including the SketchUp model in about 90 minutes to 2 hrs.)

The lights were on a separate layer, painted with the airbrush, layer-mode set to "screen" with the opacity turned down a little.
The floor and ceiling have some photo-reference overlaid on a new layer, layer mode "overlay" with an opacity of about 50%. Once I'm happy, I'll flatten these layers down, and add a little more paint to integrate them better with the rest of the image.

Hope that helps a little:)

I really enjoyed this painting as much as your last one. The perspectives are brilliant. I feel like I could just step right in there and pick up a book to read.

Very complex piece of work, masterfully painted. As everybody says: outstanding!

That's quite fast for so a marvellous complex picture. How large ist the image in pixel? Screensize or larger?

Is this SketchUp you mention the Google 3D-software?

Thanks again.

Narf: yes, it's Google SketchUp. I usually work at a resolution of around 4000 pixels wide, and then reduce to around 2048 pixels once it's finished.

This is simply remarkable and so wonderfully done, acd! Your painting is so incredibly detailed-oriented and it's just wonderful how you've mastered the right contrast of lights and darks as well as all the right color choices! You've must have loved coloring as a child!!!
