Easy Days by DerMonkey Easy Days by DerMonkey
Easy Days In Hangar 17.



:music: AFC & Mav - Too Deep For You [on covered ops]

countless hours of work, frustration and fun in photoshop.
i've been working on this since march,it somehow grew along with me and my skills i evolved; and very slowly but constantly it became more solid. these were literally 'the easy days' for me; however, it also symbolizes 'the end of the easy days', as i finally moved out, attend an art college and run for the real life. (that's why the sunset)

it originaly was a 'cloud-training/test' picture; however, the clouds are pretty much the only thing what's left of the first early versions. maybe you remember these:

i want to thank all the people on :iconcgpad: www.cgpad.org who provided me with critique, tips and overpaints. special thankies to the traitor-apprentice of the dark side, cb3 :jedi:


well, i used references for the city in the background (Appleseed Ex Machina)

inspired by and dedicated to :iconukitakumuki:




ill get my wacom soon! :boogie:

why do people keep linking this to avatar? :o
if anything, this would be the prequel- as it is more than a year older than the movie...

One of the more original pieces of sci-fi I've seen in a while. I love the shapes of the machine, the armoured suits and the shape of the building in the background.

There is also a great sense of depth, and good contrast between the warm and cool colours in your piece.

Awesome stuff!
