The Powerplant by fox-orian The Powerplant by fox-orian
is melting down. Better go check it out just to be sure.

I guess this is what I came up with for the finish of that wasteland WIP. I like the concept for some reason. Some huge power plant in the middle of nowhere generating power for god knows what, who knows how.

Took about 5.5 hours total, and aside from an initial texture underlayer done with a sponge brush, was overwhelmingly painted with a small round brush.

Photoshop CS5, Cintiq.


EDIT: Yay a DD! This is extremely unexpected. And it's not a tutorial! Fantastic. Thanks DA!
Remember: if it's a picture of a wasteland, it will remind you of Borderlands and or Trigun. Remain calm, as this is completely normal if it happens to you.

The Powerplant by `fox-orian. Wide and desolate and beautiful with great usage of perspective and composition. Tells a lot with very little - simplicity at its finest. ( Featured by alicexz )

"And it's not a tutorial".. That really made me laugh.

Nonetheless, love that rough textures on the ground. Total contrast to the distant powerplant over yonder. :)

yeah i hear that the student loans are horrific I totally agree with the art school post you made a little while ago. Im almost getting msgs weekly now from younger students asking my opinion on art profession and schools etc, and i never really can make positive replys.

I'm still thinking of making Artitechts as an actual blog/website. Seems like a logical starting point, hahah.

I've just been working a full time retail job, nothing too special. It's sapping up a majority of my time ahaha but keeps me afloat with student loans and all.

Im really trying to get myself into painting things similar to this and expanding the kind of art I do. because lately Ive only been drawing characters. I really really really love this concept, and I swear I feel my eyes popping out of my head, you're so. inspiring, and I JUST laid eyes on your gallery.
;u; and a cintiq, goodness, so lucky uwu i wish i could afford one. soon. soon i sahll.

Omgsh... thats so incredible. Tell me, what do you think about replacing the electric poles with some fat looking giant cabled that runs across the desert floor? like... maybe the size of and elephant gurth wise. And it would be strapped to the ground by huge metal hinges.
