Lava City by dylancole Lava City by dylancole
This is a personal piece that I did for myself. I wanted to explore the idea of a city built around a volcanic environment.

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-05-27
Dylan Cole has, quite simply, created a masterpiece of sci-fi architecture and scenery. Every inch of Lava City exudes strength and power, a sense of weight and realism. No portion of this work was skimped on. The overall image is well composed, and then you start to notice the little details that just donít stop finding your eye.

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Suggested by Hameed and Featured by lolly )

The fog is an excellent touch, and the lighting in general adds to the cloying, polluted feel of the city.

I loved the atmosphere of this futuristic sci-fi city and the red clouds meaning that the air must be hard to breath
.Do you like to use Terragen?

I used a piece of this image on a background of a colorization in a subliminary way, I hope you don´t mind. =)

Could I use a cropped section of this piece for a small piece of my RP site? I would like to use it as a reference photo of one of the cities that are available to RP in. Here's a link to the site. It's very much a work in progress and not even close to functional yet...but I was just wondering since it's a very good quality and beautiful digital painting. It would be an honor if I could use a portion of it. I would definitely credit you, and provide a link to your deviant art account. or if you have a website you'd rather me link it to, I would be more than happy to do that as well.
Thank you for your consideration,
Samantha

PS Here's a link to the RP site: [link]
