I think after this no one is going to belive me when I say that I'm (hopefully) not insane and actually really lazy and have hard time focusing on stuff... but yeah this is what ate my past three months! It's for super open and SUPER FUN school assignment, which was about making a huge illustration big enough to be printed at 1x3 meters (rougly 3,3x10 feet). So I went for aaaaall the details ever.

I was hoping to get even more details there and I'm still a bit sad about not having them but even with this it got finished mostly because I ran out of time rather than actually finishing it ;; I went through technical problems hell with this too including my new laptop deciding to stop working and taking ages to fix, so I'm really glad this got "finished" before it spontaneously combusted or something.

The city is from my story project Fisher that I hope to draw as a comic one day, Narya, the blondie on the left, is the main guy there! I basically abused this to get more ideas on the paper about how the city and mostly Tall Houses part of it looks like, though I'm not sure about how close I'm gonna stick to this.

I wanted to have a cat counting minigame here too but there's way too many cats that are tiny or behind windows and it's kinda hard to see sometimes in the internet size so it probably wouldn't make sense and I didn't even count them myself to be honest :c I wish I could share a bigger version of this because the detailssss and because this is only about 20% size, but you know, freely sharing high res images on the internet isn't exactly safe ;;

A single house fire would be goddamned ruinous.

I read glorious instead of ruinous at first but yes. It would be. To be fair they probably pay good attention to fires so when something does happen the entire community works on putting that out asap but if it gets out of control... then it was nice knowing these neighbourhoods.

This illustration is awesome.  If you haven't heard of him before, I recommend you check out an artist named Ikeda Manabu, I think you would like his work.

Do you / or anyone know a fantasy book with scenerys like this?

I'm not sure about scenery exactly like this, at least for fantasy books (always gonna recommend Nihei Tsutomu's stuff even though it's sci-fi manga, Abara and Biomega are probably the closest), the books I can think of now that might come fairly close depending on how you imagine the setting are the Bas-Lag novels by China Miéville, Veniss Underground by Jeff VanderMeer, maaaaybe Shadowrun novels, I haven't read any but the universe is cool and setting like this would fit. Urban fantasy, weird fiction or some cyberpunk stuff in general are probably your best bet, I haven't been that great at finding any new books to read recently so I only have a few names ._.

God, how I would hate working for the maintenance department of this city...

I think they're pretty understaffed in this area actually so it's more of a community project D: The rest of the city is a bit better, or at least you won't fall who knows how many meters when you slip.

That's what I call depressing realism.

Wow this is just amazing. I am getting an ancient yet also a futuristic vibe at the same time.
