Riba-roja de Turia by geckokid Riba-roja de Turia by geckokid
It's how I see the little town, sort of a memory map. I wanted to portray the vibrant colours, and textures of Spain.

Thanks for looking :)

Photoshop 7, about 7 hours, 30+ layers, Wacom Graphire 2

25/1/08: changed some little things, colours, textures, lighting and the cat etc.


26/1/08: worked on it quite a lot, now it's 57 layers... just think I should consider it done now, it's been so many hours that i have lost count now.

see colours really seem better ^^
It was already amazing, though.. so it's even more
when we're the ones who've done the work never think it's perfect, right? =p .. we keep coming back to change it =p (I study journalism adn when I read the texts I wrote some time ago - wich I liked by the time - I think they're awful =p)

It's so picturesque! It has the feeling of an old painting in a way. :)

I've looked at this a few times and every time I see the smaller of the cats it's moved, if I hadn't read what you'd changed I'd still be wondering if it really had moved or if I had imagined it... and if it had moved on its own, maybe, unlikely but I like to imagine...

looks very good, but pardon me if i'm mistaken: but isnt this more like a mattepainting?

sort of, but there's no such a category in dA, nor do i consider this a photomanip... as there are quite a bit of painting going on...

:D it's just nitpicking to be honest, and I always care about categories very much :D

but with the "misc" category i meant: Digital Art > Miscellaneous > Landscapes & Scenery

I donno... i think it could use more of a 3d effect, or at least a consistent light source. And maybe if the textures didn't overlap on things.

But you did get some good spain-like colours in there :)

thanks, i have done some little modifications to it now. it's kinda hard for me, as you see the sun directly, which is the main lighting, as a result everything would be under shades... well, i tried to make it look like a classic painting.
