Metropolis KL 2210 by skian-winterfyre Metropolis KL 2210 by skian-winterfyre
Full view for details!

For the project data and WIPs, go here (worth checking out!): [link]
It's my full compilation of the progress for the environment design part, from idea sketch to final outcome as you see above :D

In total, I clocked in 18 hours --- which is not bad for my first foray into concept art, environment design part :)

On a side note, because I was quite fond of this work, I incorporated it into my storyboard project as well (which, incidentally, has KL destructed due to an alien invasion...!!! More on that project, soon, I promise :nod:)--- and hey, the lecturer rooted me for it, so all was well, haha :XD:

And...this work is my jumpstart into the world of background art, and in the future you'll probably see more environment art from me, if I lean more towards that direction...

Is this in reference to DC Universe Online?

No. Didn't play that game so I've no idea how it looks like.
I got the inspiration mostly from Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes.

Very cool love all the detail and the hexagon dome surrounding the city has a beautiful use of light transition.

Well done ! The red color vs the green gives something special to that work.

Have made some timelapse of that work ? Or another ?
It could be cool to see your process. ;)

Sorry for pointing out like a child,but aside from the sunset glow,why do the buildings look like they are fire? I'm sure they are tiny little lights but that's what it looks like to me.No greenry...Hate to live there.

Perhaps the art was trying to depict a dystopian theme.

I'm afraid that one day, within 500 to 700 years, it will need to be like that, to keep the deadly gasses and nuclear acid rains out, just so people can survive... 
There won't be any vegetation, insects, sealife, nor wild life left on this planet..  You won't be able to tour outside the city without a complete safety survival moon-suit with breathing apparatus.. The sun's unfiltered UV would burn your skin third degree in under an hour.. You won't be able to swim nor touch nor drink the ground-water in the lakes, oceans and rivers, cuz it would kill you..  We are and have killed this planet..  There won't be chocolate nor coffee for future humanity because of us, because of how we're living today..  We are destroying our children's world..  We don't have that right..  We are only visitors here...

People don't think any more..  They have lost that ability..  Their ipods are now their brains and minds..  All they have left of thinking is to regurgitate pre-established fear and glory based opinions that they've learned on der teevee..  At least they've got "minecraft", TV, fastfood outlets, booze, coke, hospitals, funeral parlors, and their moist crotches, all to keep them busy believing they're doing something valuable in this life..  like the neighbour female-nurse who watches teevee 15 hours a day, licks fat pussy once a month, and believes she's "the reincarnation of god", but this is her hell...
