i apparently did not put on DA a pic in which i tried to convey what most struck me about F., which is the way you saw the huge HUGE dome towering over and past narrow alley like streets, the contrast in scale was amazing, and i get something of that in your picture, though its clear that that isn't your primary aim, since among other things you have three domes not one. anyway love it good work.
Very nice, +fav this one, I love the lighting and all but the shadows on the domes looks very fake, maybe you could touch that up with a brush or two.
Anyway, I have a few questions, did you start out with an base image or was this all created from scratch? If it was created from scratch, how did you do it, it looks great. Finally, what did you do to make the spot lights? I can do something similar to that but not as good. Was it just a lighten brush or what?
Yeah, I really do under-use the brush but I really havn't found it to be that useful. Maybe I'm missing something or whatever but I find that layers and filters are my main tools with brushes etc. being secondary. If you have any place with good tips on brushes then please let me know.
