A concept piece I created in CS3, shows a futuristic city similar to Hong Kong. About 5 hours time, original photos of Miami buildings are incorporated in the back, everything else hand drawn

Hello, call Don Pepe, I am working on a book with some friends of mine, it happens that we liked this conceptual art so that it represents a character for our story, can we take inspirations and some aspects for this story? If we are successful, we will promote your devianart account and name the individuals who helped us.''

I really like this. It's simple, but hopeful.

My husband is looking for a piece of art for the cover of his ebook, which we are going to try to get published on Amazon. If you haven't sold exclusive rights to this piece, please contact me at to talk about pricing and whatnot. Thank you.

oh, thank god this is on deviantart!
hey I was wondering if you minded or not, but I had found this on google while looking for a utopian looking city image to put in the bg of a character app. and I also allow my friends to use the same base that I put it on. Neko Emoji-36 (Oh no) [V2]  I just realized that I had never thought to hunt down the artist until now! (IM SO SORRY!) anyways I wanted to know if you were alright with this if, not I will go through and edit the base of the app so that the background is not this image!

P.S. this image is amazing, you're really good at awesome back grounds!

Great Masterpiece, looks really nice!
Am I allowed to use this picture as a fictional photo on my blog of a fictional reporter in my Sci-Fi-Universe? I will give you full credit.

I really like this piece. Is it done in Photoshop or is it partly hand-drawn? I would love to create something similar to this. how do you go about creating a city, like do you sketch the city out first or do you go straight into photoshop and start using your primary photographs.

thank you, quite an old piece! for this one it was just photoshop, i usually hand sketch the composition first. Then once painted I photo bash. glad you like it!

It Looks really cool :) so you basically just sketch the layout and then paint over it in Photoshop (presume the paintbrush tool) then finalize it by adding photo's of buildings? I like the style of it, looks really cool.

Ah...I love a lovely city by day.  It has a Tomorrowland vibe that I find very appealing.  Nice work!

I love the colors. It reminds me a bit of the games Mirror's Edge and Mass Effect. I'm seriously in love with this. It's looks so alive, and I don't even know why!
