Do you have any more information on that project?  (I'm partially curious because this is exactly the style of art I was aiming for in one of my own in-dev personal projects.)

It's just a story about the human colonization of other worlds - this painting takes place on Earth though and is about a crisis that is happening off-world.

OK.  If you ever post it online, I hope you'll share it with DA.

Very impressive. Love the detail. At first I thought it was a rendition of the Shepard/Garrus bottle shooting bromance sequence in Mass Effect.

One of the best parts of not only ME3 but the whole trilogy! I love that my painting made you think of that scene. :)

There's a really great example of artistic balance from top to bottom with the building and the car. The building has a lot of small, detailed parts while the car is larger from being closer, with little detail across. I get the distinct feeling of depth in the image as well as implied speed of the cars on the street. There's also a narrative being told with the details both literally with the billboards in the background with breaking news and figuratively with the sentries standing over the street with rifles - as if it's business as usual in this seemingly dystopian setting. The colors you chose also work to set up both balance between top and bottom and add to the story being told. The hard grey colors below offset the soft peach colors above the city and show that humanity has deviated much from nature. All in all, it's a great work and I'm proud to add it to my favorites folder.

Not a problem at all. In-depth comments are better for everyone. It lets the artist know what they strive in and what they could improve on. Also I like leaving critiques because I love it when people leave them for me ^_^

They are getting close there is suppose to be 2 this year. Assassins Creed Unity for Xbox one takes place during the French revolution and the other one is yet to be announced but takes place in Russia

It's probably a leftover element from one of the photo or texture overlays I used. :)

Those are some distracting highway signs

Still, very nicely done, I like the scene-within-a-scene effect
