Artist Comment

oh boy this was a long project almost a few months in progress with much slacking. of course i had to stop for a while since it was exam time. and i managed to finish it today.

i would like to thank everyone on VE Forums for helping me out with comments and crits. mainly Jason9811(Jason Isenburg), Hiihi (Andy), phoenix, and also xcf33 (chang) for providing ideas and helping me out with this.

this wall started off as simple shapes literally black and white shapes witch made up the walls the ceilling supports and doors. and it took an unbelieveable time to texture and detail them all. here's a screenshot of when i first started and eventually i got to texture them all and i added a character however it didn't work out and the lights didn't work either. screenshot
later half way through my work i finally recieved my tablet and i was eagered to try it out and created the cracks, it wasn't bad though it did need some more work on it (not bad for someone who just touched the tablet.) later it really helped when i did the broken glass. it wouldn't have been possible without it. and after much thought and disscussion with jason, he finally convinced me that the wall would be better off without a scan.and that pretty much a summery of these last few months which i worked my arse off to finish this wall.

P.S. parden my horrid english and the origional size is 1920x1200 and for some reason this site doesn't allow those dimentions so i had to resize it.

c&c's is much apprecated.

This is incredible! Such an atmospheric piece that oozes urban decay & environmental abuse. It's also refreshing to see something with such a high quality of work that's gone into it that doesn't involve cute or popular characters. The artwork alone speaks volumes.

    Wow your work it's so stunning >o<! I was so surprised that I started to look for the japanese artist that created the original version of your own original work lol XD but when I readed that you did ALL the work by yourself and after months of such a hard work that I don't know what I admire the most... your final work or your arse endurance ^^ (lol just joking), I'm so shocked that someone can create something like this without giving up in the process... I admire your will and your talent.

    I admire your modesty too, some people don't like to be criticized while they are creating something, but you asked and accepted advise from a bunch of (I suppose from the result) very talented people (with an excelent taste I have to say).

    I think that this piece of art has his own dimenssion, it's like a crack on the window of time, I can feel how the place it's falling a part on an imaginary city that it's struggling to go forward instead of backward. Thanks for creating this with conviction and with a touch of uncertainty in that lost reality ^^, it's more than layers and textures... it's like watching an old world with new eyes.... unbelievable.

    Brilliant work, your hardwork resulted in a magnificent piece of art, I am in awe of your resolve to continue your work for monthes, the immense attention to details - such as the cracks in the wall, the broken glass and the hanging wires - speaks of your talent, keep it up.

  9. cagalli-y-a Jul 25, 2006

    Yay~ DaDong! Well I saw this on VE and forgot to comment on it ^^; Sorry...

    Anyway, I just love it, I can't critisize it though. I really like the amount of detail, the time and effort you put into it and the professionalism. Whaaa~ I don't know what to say! It's just amazing!

    Definitely deserves a fave~
