Prague in future by merl1ncz Prague in future by merl1ncz
Do you remember one of my older images? [link]

Well I decided to grab it and to rework it completely from scratch. I painted it in high resolution so it could be printed. I used bunch of photos in a way matterpainters do which I took personaly. All those photos were taken near of my place so this picture also has some personal value for me. There are overaly many little thigns which are somehow connected to me. This picture will be shown on my upcoming exhibition of my digital paintings in Prague.

I will be glad for any feedback and constructive critiques especially.

Don't forget to check out my facebook page and like it [link]

Ever since the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided trailer, I can't think of anything else whenever I'm looking at this.

An excellent rework. I think it loses some of the atmosphere of the original though with the more detailed background and street view.

Also, miss the blue glow on the smugglers lair "sex and drink" ;), which I prefer to cabaret academy. Still incredibly detailed.

Stunning work. The older image was great to look at, but this is absolute crisp - How did the exhibition in Prague go?

Sakra ty ses dobrej :) Vypada to vyborne.

Úžasné :) +fav

(BTW moje mamka to jako Prahu identifikovala, i přestože jsem ji neukázala název obrazu. Údajně máme v Čechách jedinečné odpadkové koše ;) Good job )

I remember your older Picture pretty much as I used it once for my Videos on YT. When looking at the new one, even it is more exact and all that I think your older one has more "Flair". Shouldn't sound mean - just my honest Opinion.

It is still a very good Painting - the older one I simply liked more.

Holy god. This looks amazing. I can't even begin to comprehend how you made it look almost completely like a photo.

i prefer the older's greenish cyan tint and the logo on the right, this red one is too harsh imo but overall this one is better although i will never understand how you make such wonderful depth.

Už kolikrát jsem si všímal, že by Praze pár upgradů pomohlo. Nadzemka, silnice ve vzduchu pěkně skrz město a mezi tím vším mrakodrapy ;) Nic proti hradčanům a spol. ale už je to starý a okoukaný :P

No, snad jednou bude Praha aspoň jak londýnské City ;)
Megatrong Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Nice! I personally like the other one. It`s loose and has some kind of mood. This one is tighter and more clear. :)

The ammount of details... made my jaw drop to the floor. I love the ground reflections, making it look like it was raining recently. There is not much to say really. You made an art that has little if any room for improvement. Lands in my fav :)
N8KOL Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011   General Artist
Love the texture of this piece of art, it draws you in, slowly but surely. Not too sharp that everything becomes apparent straight away.
Michaellasroy Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011
nice work... love they way the lights reflect on the streets ^^
MangoKingoroo Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011  Student Interface Designer
It's very beautiful
Hixbosone Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It stopped to rain, at least!
Now I need a wall that is wide enough for poster of your masterpiece^^

Where did you get the ideas for those buildings in the background? They are very detailed and have a cool architecture.
But I´ve to complain that I liked the atmosphere in the forerunner much more.

Musím souhlasit s většinou komentářů, že se mi první verze líbí víc~ působí na mě klidněji a ty zelené odstíny tomu tak nějak dodávají šmrnc~ :> ovšem netvrdím, že tento obrázek je o něco horší~
Naopak.!! Jde tady krásně vidět jak ses za tu dobu vyskillil v kreslení~ Tenhle je takový čistější...oh pro Boha vždyť i v kaluži je detailní odraz.!! :D Úžasné říkám.!!

Nevědět, že obrázky kreslil jeden člověk, těžko tomu uvěřím~ :>

Old Prague (or what looks like it) seems pretty down on its luck compared to the fancy megacity in the background.

I lack any useful comments to say other than that I'm having trouble accepting that this is not a photograph with a painted sky...
Noitusan Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
Wow! Fantastic work.
evilhedgehog2011 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011
Absolutely amazing! I had hoped you would end up doing a tighter version of that one, and definitely not disappointed! Awesome detail, love the lighting, and love the reflections on the streets! Really gives a nice feeling of things being a little wet! I think my favorite part is actually the neon signs, I love the glow!
