City of Dreams by onlychasing-safety City of Dreams by onlychasing-safety
"This city's always got a promise for you. Might be a lie, an illusion, but it's there. Just around the corner, and it keeps you going."

Inspired by the Cyberpunk 2077 E3 trailer. Looks nice! I'm curious about the story. 

The two written languages in front are the runic Elder Futhark, the oldest form of runic alphabets, and Elvish from lotr. 
Been pushing some ideas around with what that means. The further inward I go depicting the city the further I can bring that idea forward.

I'm soooo excited for that game. And when I saw the title, I immediately thought of Cyberpunk 2077

Holy, exquisitely wondrous! This Ethereal CyberPunk CityScape is stunning, and The Elder Futhark and Elvish Neon Signs look incredible. The designs, skyscrapers, towers, marketplace, bridge, buildings, signs, pillars, roof, windows, doors, archways, street, crosswalks, pipes, architecture, futuristic citizens, poses, expressions, interactions, subway entrance, benches, graffiti, hair, outfits, jackets, hats, jewelry, sky, clouds, haze, shadows, smog, technology, street lighting, statues, lamps, effects, movement, flow, perspective, realisticness, atmosphere, hues, textures, composition, concept, uniqueness, style, lighting, colors, and other details are also sensational. Amazingly Radical work! :iconfantasticplz:

Futhark and elvish? Not the script you usually see on cyberpunk pictures...

I love the gritty reality feel of your cityscapes. It takes me back to the world of "Bladerunner", "Fifth Element", and maybe a little "Total Recall". The somewhat lose feel also helps with the illusion of urban movement and a slightly fuzzy reality. These would be so powerful for matte backgrounds for movies.

The runes looks something out of Tolkiens world; Arda.
This could be like 100.000 of years out in the future or something!

Some kind of super future Minas Tirith, where all LOTR races are living together. Great idea, thought about it myself some time, and you pictured it. :D

What do the elvish ads mean?
And the Futhark one?

I could search for my Futhark book, but I am a bit too lazy right now. Talking about elvish, there exist different dialects ... high elvish, just plain as in middle earth and of course the black speech, merely using just the same glyphs.

H.W. Pesch also even invented, in his book 'Elbisch', a German elvish letter alphabet, besides the English version and what not.

Again I must say you're really good in composing and executing this kind of picture, great sense of architecture and design. Of course using the elvish and dwarfen script was and added bonus ;)

Nothing that exists. Usually in my futuristic scenes (and occasionally fantasy) I don't use existing alphabets but ill use one I made up instead. For now they are Just scribbled characters that fit nicely into a square!
