(((((DOWNLOAD FOR THE FULL VERSION)))))

I have worked on this Image for about 3 weeks now. The objects are rendered in Vue8 and post work (lighting effects, signs, and painting over some buildings) was done in CS4. About 120 layers may be more in CS4. It is a concept image for a game.

(((Final Version 6400 x 1720 Print Version now for sale))) [link]

Now going back to another game to finish 3 more images. I will post them soon.

Thanks for viewing.

:star::star::star::star::star-half: Impact

A city full of mystery and intrigue, partially, but lightly, enshrouded in a fine smog, it is otherwise clear skies for this metropolis of some distant future. The massive shell like building looms in the mid ground to remind us that this is no ordinary city, but one with technologies and social norms a bit beyond what we experience here in present time.

Note the sun in a late afternoon / early evening position, giving off just enough light to to perhaps give a modicum of warmth, and to remind us that there is a sky and clouds, perhaps with precipitation. The sun appears to be in a winter like position, possibly from the fog / smog effect put over portions of the city as an after thought. One gets the sense that it's either summer with perhaps borderline breathable air, or an early winter as temperatures begin to drop on whatever world this is.

We see airborne vehicles, perhaps a space craft or two, we see exceptionally tall buildings with domed tops reaching skyward, some of which seem slightly derivative of Star Wars. We see patches of blue beyond stratospheric clouds, and lights illuminating what would otherwise be the dark canyons and crevices building buildings and city blocks.

What kind of clubs are here? Does crime take place? Is there political turmoil? Or is all tranquil? Is that large dome like building really a stadium, or perhaps a palace for some noble or royal blood. We don't know any of these things, but we are compelled to contemplate them as we look at this image for all its worth.

Well done.

I'd like to think that somewhere in all this awesome cityscape there's a young Padawan hanging from a speeder as it zips through the buildings.

Very awesome. If I buy this Digital Art, could I use to illustrate a sci-fi book keeping your copyright?

Amazing, not just the look overall but there are several buildings here that look particularly great.
It's not something that you see often.
I mean if this image was in a movie or anime I would watch it based only this image alone.

Great work!
