Times Square-digital painting by S-A--K-I Times Square-digital painting by S-A--K-I
:dance: Yaay!!!! :dance:

I finally finished it. 3 days ago, I promised myself, I'll do something, digitally, that'll test my skill, perseverance and dedication to the highest level till date. And I think I managed it somehow. It had insane amount of details and it was something of a scale I've never dared to try before. But this time, I decided I must. And I did... :aww:

Done from this wonderful, w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l photo taken by :icontvlookplay: =tvlookplay with His permission. :)


Medium- Photoshop CS6 + Wacom BAMBOO tablet
Time- 26 hours
Done with default Photoshop brushes.

I hope you'll like this... :)


The W.I.P. can be seen here...

This is so amazing.
The photo itself is amazing but drawing this... wow

It looks really like the original photo.

The details and colours are overwhelming.
The colours are so bright and the details are brilliant.

I can nearly hear the noise of the people and the cars, because this drawing is so vivid.

I can look it at forever and still find some new details.
The people on the street, the cars, the advertisments on the houses and streets.

And I think 3 days for this amazing piece is really fast.

You are really an amazing artist. *-----*

Thank you. :) I'm really glad you like this. But it's not possible to see more details out of this one, 'cause it was done on a really small pixel ratio.

If you want, you can see the W.I.P. of this one, the link's given in the description. If you download it, you can zoom in and see the gibberish I drew to make it look real. :P

A-freakin-mazing! I simply cannot believe you actually done this as a painting, it looks so realistic and life-like, so glitzy and glamorous that I could swear it was a photograph.

And just with default Photoshop brushes too... Dude, your talent astounds me. You've done a bloody brilliant job with capturing all the essential details that make Times Square look so good to the eyes.

Consider this an honorary favourite of mine: Won't sound like much initially, but know that I've got a massive amount of respect for someone with skills like yours. Congratulations and keep up the great work!

Ow...:aww: All that wasn't really necessary...!!! :P

I'm SO GLAD that you shared you views on this. This one has really been special to me as you've probably read in the description. I really pushed myself hard enough to achieve whatever this looks like...and going by my previous works, that indeed has been quite something. :P

I did with default brushes, yes, to really push the "pushing myself too hard" further... :P and `AquaSixio has been my greatest inspiration in using only default brushes, and He creates EPIC artworks by them. :)

Well, I'm honored. I will try my best to keep drawing and improving. Thanks a lot... :)

Well, it's necessary in this case, it absolutely deserves the recognition. ;)

I was sure hoping this painting was special to you, considering you drank all those cups of tea and listened to 300+ hours of songs on loop (I checked out your W.I.P. by the way, excellent model of your progress).

Considering the use of just default brushes, and taking inspiration from someone else who does so, I have to admire the sort of effort you placed into this piece... like a true labour of love.

You are very welcome, keep up with the amazing work pal! =)
