The Bad Part of Town by CBSorgeArtworks The Bad Part of Town by CBSorgeArtworks
Study from my industrial grunge sci-fi city. People scrape out a living between massive metal structures and machines and strange technology. For most beings the city is more of a wilderness than anything civilized.

The initial sketch wasn't meant to last so long so it wasn't built as accurately as I'd like, hence the off perspective, but I can make the excuse that it's badly crafted architecture anyway XD

This was a challenge to get something more finished from an environment sketch than I normally do. The figures were an afterthought since none of this was planned. I'm happy with it though- rendering old metal is really fun.

haha I use the 'badly crafted' excuse a lot.
The raptor seems a nice/grunge guy, it's like "HEY YOOO!"

This is just awesome; so clean, smooth and detailed, and the atmosphere and lighting makes it all come together.

The guy would be lost there. =P
The architecture isn't that bad, you only need to work a little with the perspective, for the rest it's perfect. Keep it up!

Is that raptorjesus guy poking his head out of the blinds or what? Haha he looks like he's about to say something about how he's not coming out until social security tells him to.
but aaaa that valve in the upper corner of the doorway and the texture on the buildings in general, they're so like, rusty. Did you use brushes for this or did you just kind of freeball it?

Omg ya that guy is such a creeper because who else would live in Tetanus Land?

The metal is a combo of overlayed photos of metal, normal paint brush, and some texture brushes.

He just sits inside and eats insta-noodles and waits for his welfare checks from the Bureau of Raptor Jesus Affairs.

Oh cool, so there WERE grunge brushes in there. I was like AHAHA RECOGNITION

Fantastic! This looks just terrifying. Those creatures hardly look friendly, I think that poor guy just found himself in the wrong side of town!
