Hugh Mann wrote this beautiful description about the picture :
"A kaleidoscope of half-forgotten memories trapped within the confines of the brain, as you sit, at the stop, waiting for the train to pass, become a calliope of sounds, a cacophony of colors and textures come at you, then rushing by- memories; beguiling, unwinding running together in swirls, as they twirl, churning and burning, broiling, roiling, reeling and rolling, twisting, turning, a child's laughter whizzes by you, like a speeding auto, out of control, or the train's whistle, so loud, slowly diminishes as it passes by, seeing flashes of familiar and not-so faces, so fast they flash by, in between blinks of an eye, at times, all you can see is a sea of black ebony, as soft, mute explosions of color fill in the gaps with each brain synapse, a flock of pigeons rousted from their roost, an electric eddy-current buzzes by high overhead, clanking, cackling and clanging steel and iron wheels squeaking and creaking from the heavy weight the freight the train carries, the cars rattle and rock,rolling by in front of you, sitting by idly, engine idling, on this avenue...

I think my favorite part about this piece is that the closer you get to the ground, the more clear the details and resolution of the lines are. This suggests a reality at the street level that might not exist in the lofty aeries of the upper parts of the dome, yet the dome's presence (is it keeping an alien environment out or keeping the work-trodden in?) may imply a safety present closer to the ground that may be thin in the air.

Very ambiguous. I like.

This must have been a technical nightmare to assemble, Stefan. I'm noticing a little too much multiply on the top left railing from where all of the rails weren't clipped, but together it makes a strong piece. I like the ceiling piece, as well as the little lights you added in the lower left. Good work!

If you're looking for inspiration with a similar subject manner, check out the comic book "Wolverine: Noir" that came out last year. The story is garbage, but Issue 1 has a few gorgeous background images that you might enjoy from an artistic standpoint.

How about what I really like about it then. First, I like the use of perspective. I really get the feeling of height and distance. Second, the birds flying was a nice realistic touch one would expect in such a setting. Also, a third aspect I like is the reality of the architecture. The metal work really looks like it could stand in reality.

So well done.

This is awesome! It looks like a huge underground market, except its not really underground, it just has a giant dome beneath. Kind of like in your "Happy Event" one, except bigger.

Stay in touch
