I hate doing backrounds and yours are beyond amazing. I try to do them but I think its the shading that messes me up. Any quick pointers or little tricks for doing detailed backrounds like that?
I dont have any here on dA(trust me, nobody wants to see them)so, I know that doesnt help. Just if you happen to get a little free time, I would like to pick your brain a little bit.

I know, this could be a long, complicated question...sorry.

Well i am afraid there is no quick and easy way to doing those backgrounds. There is always a little manual work involved like using brushes, photos or filters. As with everything in art -at least when it comes to better quality- nothing is really easy...unfortunately. I also struggle a LOT all the time as i am very rarely satisfied with my own results. At 90% i find the art of others better than mine. This can be frustrating... i must admit. As is said it is also not so easy to make good backgrounds for space scenes. I think the most important thing would a bit of patience, experimentation and a lot of manual work combining different techniques to come up with individual results. But i donīt have a specific way to work when it comes to creating those backgrounds. It varies each time :)

Hey cool thanks. That actually helps. I just need to get away from doing too much detail. It ends up blending into the characters in the foreground and then turns to mush. I even do them seperate.
Thanks again. This will give me a little to think about and work on.
O and again, your work is truly some of the best I've seen. Thanks for sharing your art!

Wait, if all of those are cities, which way is the gravity going?

Fantastic! but I can't help but wonder - if only Vue and Photoshop were used with no other 3D modelling programs - then how'd you get all that complex machinery in there :confused: I've heard complex cities can be done via procedural terrains but this looks almost too good for that...Unless the machine walls are the postworked part or downloaded models :O
