To You Who Finds this Letter by owen-c To You Who Finds this Letter by owen-c
Releasing one's self to the wind.

This one is mostly based on different works of Catalan modernism and the Italian "Liberty" style, which were both localized off-shoots of the Art Nouveau style.

A mix of 3DCG and digital painting. I've been wanting to include people in my works for a while, even though I am not great at drawing them, and this is the first result of that.

The result of the great snow storm of 2010! I was stuck at home for many days snowed in, and unable to go to work or class...with nothing to do but work on this image...well, it was a good excuse to anyways. So what better to do than paint blue skies.

I may be submitting this one to somewhere "big" in the near future, so any suggestions of ways to improve it would be greatly appreciated.

This brings a sense of nostalgia to me. I think it's because it reminds me of the well-made cartoons I used to watch growing up. Yet it also has some of that flair that I now enjoy. All the little details are amazing. It makes me exhausted just looking at it...and I'm not even the one who painted it LOL

Amazing color and style, the amount of detail in each of the buildings contrasted by the simple design of the girl throwing paper airplanes is very interesting. The angle of the picture is consistent throughout the picture. You draw distance really well; the world slowly fades away into that narrow alley.

Amazing work!

Thanks, funny enough that is just because I am more skilled/confident in modeling buildings than drawing characters.

What an interesting looking city... I rather like it. Is there any city in the world that this is based off of, or is it an original creation?
