Damn this took me some time to color!

So, here you can see a double page spread from my comic, Requiem, with Hemera gazing upon Librepolis- the capital city on Earth and CGA teeming with a billion people. I tried to make the view look grand enough for that effect, but I'm not exactly sure how it came out.

This page hasn't been added to the comic's site yet, so it's a sort of a preview for what sort of quality to expect. I hope it's adequate. :)

Some trivia about the picture: the windows on the huge towers took one whole Micron pen to get them all drawn, definately one of the dullest things I've ever done... just drawing lines after lines. Also, the very huge building far away in the background is called the "Green Tower" and it is the main government building in the capital city. It'll be somewhat important much later on. And one more thing: if someone can spot my little homage to Appleseed, I'll throw that person a free sketch! :D(qwertyDesign got this one right already)

Anyway, if you have any suggestins on how to impove it, I'll be glad to hear them!

This reminds me so much of Chicago and the Chicago river running through the city

Your panoramas and lightings are just breathtaking! You're able to bring the viewer right there with you into the exact angle and elevation in the world. What's even more awesome is that this is achieved with not many color tones and hues. I can feel the wind whipping and the temperature of the place. One can just see how immense the world is! The picture is nicely balanced too - with ample 'eye rest' but at the same time with megatons of interesting details to take in. This is definitely good stuff - and a whole new benchmark for me to aim for, personally.
Great work, with lots of respect!

Mä luulen että tuolta lahdelta puuttu sellanen vanha kiinalaismallinen vene. Ne purjeet ja paperilyhdyt vedessä.. aijai, täydellistä kontrastia lasikaupungille.

No ei vaineskaan, tää mitään tarvi, mutta jos teet julisteen Requiemista niin se vois sijoittua sellaselle laivalle :D

Great rendering.
Appleseed: I see one of the Archologies from the city of Olympus on the right-hand bank of the nearest bridge.
Great work.

Thanks! :)

Yep, you got it right- it's sort of tiny compared to the ones in Appleseed, but it's still the same resemblance. So what would you want for a sketch?

Wow! That's really generous.
I will have a think and message you.
Thanks again!
