Street Addiction by gizmodus Street Addiction by gizmodus
Commission for a rap group.
Was a good experience to do something different than I usually do. Comments are very welcome of course!
Thank you all for your great support once again!! :)

*edit* I changed the colours a bit...

You have a very strange but lovely way to see the street.

god these are good colors! i think you did well leaving the text of the graffiti like that, since that's obviously supposed to be the main focal point.

I like this, but i think it has a few problems

first the text looks kinda slapped on... it looks like some random "graffiti" font instead of real graffiti

also I feel that the street is too wide, and it doesn't really look like a real city

otherwise it looks great

Edits are sensational. Much less of a brooding atmosphere than a "hey, have some hope" one. nice.

Its a shame you are wasting your talent for a rap group, rap and art are from very different worlds. Nice background drawing though.

Music is art, 95% of rap is not music. Thats my opinion anyway.

i think i prefer the darkness and mood of the original, but this certainly works better considering the promotional purpose.

I adore this so much, your use of tones, blending, softness.. and yet at the same time, hard edgy forms; Wonderful.

It's like, persistent natural prettiness in a place of harsh urban life.

There's so very much depth in this picture, the contrast with the sky is fantastic. And also a strong mood and sense of life too.

This also brings back memories in a way, I've been to a place like this, in America last year.

Total favorite, thankyou for sharing it.

What did the Rap group think of it?

The project is still running and there are some changes to be done but I think overall they're satisfied with it... :)

It's so beautiful. I can never wrap my head around how colours and forms can be laid down so well. It's so...sketchy but so real. Really suits the urban area too.

How long did it take you?

I didn't draw it in one session so I can't say excactly how long I worked on it. Around 6 hours? Maybe more...

I liked the unusual cold version more, it was very unique and really brought out the mood of the city.

I don't see alot of vertical variety in the shading, maybe its just the lighting...
Its always good to step outside your comfort zone every now and again.

the ladder backing the building to the right is a little unsettling- looking very rushed, is that intended? gorgeous refelctive and atmospheric work.

one suggestion- the street looks a bit dead, architecturally speaking? as if theres something lacking on the sidewalks. i was thinking- mailboxes and lamp posts- hah.
but beautiful work. i love the whole mood and composition

Yeah, you're right about the emptiness. I think I could still spend hours on it adding more detail here and there but well, you have to call it finished once, right? :D
