Lights at Midnight by Dhuaine Lights at Midnight by Dhuaine
Finally uploaded something :faint:
This (hopefully) is the first image in the Larks at Midnight project, sci-fi / urban category. (Yeah, I know 'larks' don't make much sense.) Something like dark fantasy in modern-tech world.

Anyway, I need feedback :D This is my first real attempt at urban manipulation and actually the first time I managed to produce something planet-like. ^^; What do you think? :)

Buildings: Jasp182 pjhansman
Sky: clix Simona Dumitru
Textures: *ro-stock mn-que vancanjay
Brushes: ~spiritsighs-stock FrozenStar
I can't link directly to Space2 brushes because dA is too stupid. If you can't find them, ask *FrozenStarRo herself ^^
:heart: Dear *aurei killed all the puny humans for me :heart: :dance:
21 hours.
STEAL AND DIE.

Its beautiful.

I love the colours you've used, gives a great atmosphere. Also the beam of light directing you to the street is a very nice touch

Well done :)

The most striking part is the juxtapositioning of the almost surreal planets floating in the night sky against the almost painfully ordinary city street below. A world where the exotic has become commonplace. Very impressive composition. ^^

Będąc na matematyce, dokonałam czynu niesamowitego i trzysta parę zaległych deviacji zredukowałam do 254. I zobaczyłam tę. I mrugnęłam. Nie wierzyłam. Znów mrugnęłam. I stwierdziłam, że to strasznie dziwne jest. Takie... niedhuainowe. Takie s-f. Niemniej jednak, ładne te niebieskości.

^^; Nie wiem czemu wszyscy gadają od kilku miesięcy, że moje dziady są nie w moim stylu. OK, kotek był dziwny, ale Nocturnal i to wyglądają raczej porządnie... imho. XD Można spytać, czemu jest niedhuainowe? ^_^;;

Bo takie nie mhrrroczne i nowoczesne. Gdzież się podziały te ogrody zapuszczone w zapomnianych rezydencjach? xddd" O, i btw, to dosyć jasne jest. Ale, że nie dhuainowe, to nie znaczy, że nie porządne, bo tego nie można temu zarzucić.

Stock do rezydencji ma takie zasady, że konstytucja krótsza. :(
Ale powoli gromadzę obrazki do tego typu rzeczy ^^

Szczęka mi opadła, kobieta. Bedę chopdzila bez żuchwy, jak tak dalej pójdzie. Twoje manipulacje sa najzwyczajniej zniewalające. Niezwykle dopracowane jeśli chodzi o pomysl i dobranie kolorów.

Nie przepadam za tematyką sci-fi... not really. Ale całkiem sympatyczna ta Twoja manipa. I te something planet-like są całkiem planet-like :D Co prawda mogłyby się bardziej różnić fakturą, ale ujdą. W ogóle niebo mi się podoba, i kolorystyka, i świecące ciapki. Gwiazdy, w sensie? ^^ Gdyby ten spiczasty budynek z najdalszej dali był bardziej podobny do Pałacu Kultury, całość przypominałaby jedną z warszawskich uliczek w centrum xD

Trochę zwaliłam te planetki, ale chciałam koniecznie sprawdzić, czy ta metoda działa :D" Nie lubię robienia tekstur...
Ano, to powinny być gwiazdy ^^;

It's beautiful, and captures the real life in another world a lot better than most of the sci fi fantasy I've seen. :heart:
