Dystopia by ApneicMonkey Dystopia by ApneicMonkey
My first real piece for 2009!

I can't remember exactly how many hours went into this, I just know it was a lot! :p I was kinda lost in the moment while painting this one.

A music video. To be more specific, the artwork that shows while a song of my own creation plays on Youtube. I also wanted to add a title over the artwork. I could link back to the art's page on here in the description.

I like the monochrome, the horizontal and perspective lines actually give me a sense of motion. Great work here

Thanks man. You've got some nice stuff too though you should probably credit Carlos Cabrera in the comments for your alien painting. ;)

Haha, thanks - I have hit a bit of a slump in the past though and need to start looking in different places for inspiration.

Staying positive though - 2009 is gonna be a big step for me and my art! :D

Thanks eBend... and yeah, I went crazy with the texture overlays on this one. Wanted to give it a chaotic feeling. :D

I just had a thought, when we switch over to flying vehicles, the complications of three-dimensional travel are going to be insane. However, Futurama's travel tubes are just super-cool (if claustrophobic) and I would love to travel via air-tube.

Five minutes after this picture was taken, Godzilla came crashing by.....fighting Mothra and Mechagodzilla at the same time. :P

You grew up in Brisbane? That's so weird, you're like the fifth person who I've found out lived/lives in Australia this week. I also keep finding out that people live in Latvia. :P

Haha, that's so funny - there's a Godzilla marathon playing on TV here soon. I definitely want to check that out! :D

I am a HUGE fan of classic Godzilla movies...the American one they did was so bad, it actually makes me angry to think about. I personally am very fond of the 1954 original, recently gor re-released in a limited edition packaging. '71 - '74 was great, Vs. Hedorah, Gigan, Megalon, and Mechagodzilla came out then. Sadly....Toho put them on hiatus until 2013, then there should be a new one, which I'm praying will be directed either by Ryuhei Kitamura (genius) or maybe they could resurrect Ishiro Honda from the grave and have him direct... :P But you should watch the marathon...such good movies.

Awesome angle and vista, very three dimentional.

It reminds me of Blade Runner.

I think all mega-cities will eventually look like Bladerunner - hard to get away from that. I think it shows how much that movie is ingrained in everyone's subconscious. :)

wow...so cool!! it's different from some of your other work somehow...it seems more...liney. i have no idea what that means either.
boy, you really grind them out, huh? your last picture was, what, yesterday.

I posted my last picture yesterday but it was actually finished earlier in the week, I just couldn't upload it.

I guess this is different for me in that there are no mountains or natural landscape of any kind visible. I really tried to push myself to go somewhere different with this one. :D

do you print all of these and like put them in frames in your house or something?

or do you just keep em' all saved on your hard drive?

Most are just saved on my hard-drive but I do occasionally print out my favorites and keep them in a folder (so I can sell myself at modeling and gaming events here in Tokyo ;) ).
