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 ;;

Well technically you could do that in real life, it just comes with a whole lot of different problems, and it isn't very aesthetically pleasing for most of people haha (I mean look how many people hate buildings like the Pompidou centre, and that's still pretty tame xD)
Besides all the detail and life, I love the perspective. And the way you used shading and detail to create the light streaming into the city is just stunning and creates an amazing sense of depth and space. Just a pleasure to stare at!
