Riding Alone by haikuo Riding Alone by haikuo
One of the backgrounds to the film I'm working on at the moment, probably going to get around to finishing a trailer for it soon. Took me about a day to draw after finaly settling on a style. Used a stock photo for the base, you can find it here stock

This brings back a lot of memories. I've been to places like New York City and other urban areas, and I've ridden busses, subways, and monorails. Sometimes there's a lot of people in them, other times there's nobody but you and you and your family. It's quite an experience. It reminds me of all the tips to the city I've taken, and all the other places I've been where I rode to beaches, or even Disney! Good times... good times.

I absolutely love the attention to detail on this. The way you've colored the sunlight is giving it a sheen that actually makes my eyes hurt a little when I look directly at it. Rather than simply making it a pure white, you've made it actually bright. You even made it reflect off of the metal poles, turning the green color a sort of fluorescent shine. And the seats? Perfect. They look comfortable, just not to where they would seem like luxury equipment. That's the way they tend to be and should be. You even managed to get the hooks on the poles for people to hold onto. I've used those. I'm getting so much out of this.

There's just one criticism. If this is supposed to make the viewer feel like they're riding alone, why not have the outside be darker in color, or in an underground tunnel instead of the bright outdoors? The sun kind of suggests happiness, and the loneliness of riding solo sort of contrasts with the cheer of the sun. That's just my interpretation, especially since the image suggests no specific destination. Just an idea.

I absolutely love this. It makes me remember so much of my life. Not that I don't still go on trips! Keep up the good work. Welcome to The List.

Great piece! Love the light situation you created and the fact, than you didn't bow to the popular habit of adding people – just because. The room as such really is enough of a subject here!

O gosh, from an artist of your standard that's pretty high praise! :D I work with electrical architecture at Volvo and I just saw your vehicle images, maybe you should pimp the new generation. It would definitely be interesting! :D

Electrial architecture, that sounds interesting. I've actually been looking at automotive design courses so I'm definatly up for giving it a go. If I do I'll be sure to show you :)

The concept car is actually quite nice I think, but it could do with a bit of an edge ;)

HAHA, don't get your hopes up. I'm not great at drawing people, they might end up looking severely disabled (not that theres anything wrong with that)

Umm I have a question.
Could I possibly do some characters and implement them into the picture.
Obviously I'd need your permission I just generally thought since you're bad at drawing characters and I'm kinda bad at drawing backgrounds x_x~~

Wow, I'd love to see how that turns out. The only conditon would be you let me use your version for my school project film trailer thing, I'd say you drew the character of course. If thats ok with you then send me your email by note, then i can send you the full res psd file so you get all the layers ^^

Don't worry, theres not really any time limit or anything. I guess I'm just trying to save myself some work cause i got loads more of these backgrounds to do and it'd be nice to have some people in some when i show my teacher.
