City_Of_Lights by Shue13 City_Of_Lights by Shue13
Photo-Manipulation of Paris, La Defense at night. I gave a lot of energy to this one in terms of lights, lightnings, colors and stuff. It mixes, photo-manipulation and painting techniques.
Manta rays (on the left) and sort of oil pumps vessels (on the right) flying in the sky. Monkey skulls acting like space invaders waiting for the day to come. Electricity flows like a river.
Hope you'll like it!

This is wicked sick! I completely and totally mean that in the best possible way. It is a given I am going to love this piece because of my love for the city and the lights that go with it. You have done a superb job on this piece in a way that draws a person to want to go into this world you have created, but at the same time they are slightly skeptical. The storm look, electricity flow and the monkey skulls make this piece dark, devious and mischievous. This simply leaves City of Lights all the more intriguing.
