Red Light District by jcbarquet Red Light District by jcbarquet
Done for the Hysterical Minds Exhibition HM11: Empathy.

This is my first cityscape, I think :)
I wanted it to have a touch of sci-fi without looking too futuristic. Hope you like it.

Very good perspective and the lighting is very well done. The lighting has a certain warmth to it as it spreads out. It actually works in very good contrast with the dark blue sky above.

I especially like the illusion of the shiny wet pavement that people are walking on. That is not an easy effect to achieve. You did it well. The people also seem to have some movement, especially with the lighting on them. This reminds me of Blade Runner a bit. Great work overall :) This has some serious impact! It makes me want to visit this place in your painting! :)

Looks like a nice portrayal of a seedy and squalid underside of a freeway. Futuristic is nice, but one has to remember that old stuff often persists, particularly in bad parts of town like this one. This rendition keeps that in mind very well. For example, that car looks like a model current to our time, but run down by the time this "photograph" was (will be) taken. What's going on there? Looks like either a drug deal or a john cruising for a prostitute? I see some other prostitutes hanging near the car. The buildings close to us look even older in stark constrast to the brand-new towers in background.

I would not want to visit this place without being at least discreetly armed. You captured the look of wet, dirty, and palpable danger quite well.

An impressive mixture of the old and new to create a gritty scene with a true sense of realism. The quality of light that you've been able to render is spectacular, too. Great work, and deserving of the attention it has attracted.

Totalmente impresionante ¿cuanto tiempo te llevó hacerlo? Me gusta ese toque añejo con futurista, me recuerda a una mezcla entre Blade Runner y G-Police (un videojuego de PlayStation 1)

Ha mi carpeta de favoritos de cabeza. ¡Un saludo desde el otro lado del Atlántico!

Muchas gracias! Me tardé bastantes horas, la verdad no llevé la cuenta pero yo diría que alrededor de treinta o cuarenta.

Un saludo de vuelta :)
