the Sewers by thomaswievegg the Sewers by thomaswievegg
This was supposed to be a speedpaint. But I ended up spending more time on it than I originally planned.. It still looks pretty speedy and sloppy?? Oh well. It was a fun piece to do. I really wanted to do something with a cool perspective.. It's obvious I'm not a pro when it comes to cool perspectives.. it looks way off in many ways, BUT! here it is.

And thanks for watching!

I love those reflections :) My only criticism is that it could be darker, seems pretty bright considering it's in the sewers, really nice though man, I like :)

Thank you :) That is a really good point! I never really saw it, maybe I'll try to darken it a bit later on. I agree it would look a lot better! ;)

Don't listen to him. He knows absolutely nothing. Sewers are not dark. The parts people can actually fit into are usually pretty well lit when you turn the lights on- especially "newer" sewers. The really old ones (like you find all over New England) are still being updated, but they are also really narrow, and the one in your picture looks pretty modern.
I was a city plumbers apprentice and all the sewer tunnels I've been in had lights. Technicians need to see what they are doing down there.
Now if you are in a "crap pipe", those don't have lights, but they also aren't that big. OR meant to have people inside them like that. They're also hard to stand up in... as you're standing on several feet of human... stuff...

So, tunnels like the one portrayed here, are pretty much like this. Poop pipes... small, dark, cramped.

My only critique is that tunnels usually aren't filled with water... or whatever that... liquid... is.

Oh man, that's the longest comment I've ever seen. :P
You seem to know a thing or two about sewers. I appreciate the effort you put into the comment! Bare in mind though, this painting is fiction, so basically this tunnel can be anything but realistic! Cheers :ahoy:

Well yeah its fiction. It'd be odd to find this in Life Art, lol. I was just making it clear that the cliche movie sewer isn't what is really down there in a lot of places. You'd be surprised what lies just below the streets and sidewalks you traverse everyday. There are entire parts of cities most people will never see in their entire lives. When you see workers going down the various ports and holes in the streets, sidewalks, and buildings, you'd be surprised to see what is actually down there, and how much space it actually takes up. You'd be surprised to know that most downtown areas and governmental centers have wicked awesome tunnels and areas that connect from building to building. After the work is done, you can have a lot of "fun" down there while getting paid for it. But don't tell anyone I gave away the secret of city workers.

Also, now that I look at it, it looks more like a service tunnel that would run next to or under a water source, as part of like a submerged motorway, or subway. Something like a lake, river, or channel. That obviously friendly guy hanging out in that hole in the ceiling might have cracked or ruptured a barrier wall or pumping pipe. I'd guess a little bit of both, since the water looks like it might still be rising/moving, and is not being drained.

Reminds me of the movie, [Daylight], with Stallone. Except with friendly creatures that hang out in cracks in the ceiling.
