    Default "Watching the world" | Angel sitting on the skyscraper's roof.

    Well, nothing special to describe, really Just wanted to draw something on the subject of Angels leaving among us, in the modern world, watching us, sometimes helping us and sometimes not. Who they are, who do the leave for - humans or gods, what are their goals, who knows. But they are definitely one of the most attractive heroes of mythology. So I thought it would be a nice idea to portray one of them I hope you'll like him


    It's a mixture of matte painting (background city), 3D (which is approx. 60% - foreground buildings and character itself) and 2D digital painting (wings and additional shading). Was rendered in XSI. Completion time: 5 or 6 days.

    Soft used: Softimage|XSI, zBrush, Photoshop.

    And here's wireframe:

    Thanks in advance!

    I would be interested to hear a bit more about your technique for the city
    background. Is it overpainted, photo based ? This is a very professional looking piece of art....should put a thumbnail in second row to get more exposure. Okay..where's the rest of your art work? Bunch of thumbs up!

    I like the lighting and the city is very well done.

    It seems odd to me that the angel isn't reflected in the building on the right though.

    Maybe a vampire angel? Nice city indeed. Can you show us some wires?

    Yes the city is photo based and is overpainted a bit and color\depth\perspective corrected. The main problem was that the original photo wasn't quite in the right perspective so I had to distort some parts of it along with further overpainting. Thanks!

    It seems odd to me that the angel isn't reflected in the building on the right though.
    Oh I doublechecked it, really. Within the angle I chose - there shouldn't be reflection definitely. Thanks!

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate you crits and comments!

    Well I've shown wire of the whole 3d scene already. If you mean the City itself it's not 3D, it's matte painting. Thanks -)
