First Directiveless

Since The World of Android book was announced, I can show this work I finished back in April this year. It was meant to represent a futuristic, overpopulated Los Angeles.
The most challenging illustration I got to work on so far and it was a major step forward for me, in terms of skill and confidence for beginning my comic.

If you are an Android Netrunner LCG fan, this artwork is available as prints and more on my RebBubble store, along with most of my Netrunner card art.

I saw this piece from owning the Netrunner book. I beautiful concept and I love the scale of the piece and you feel this character has it all in the hands. The step by step has inspired me to have a go. Were you using Sketchup for the 3d city blocks?

Hey, glad you like it, even though 50% of the artwork was hidden in the book, hahaha. :D
I used Maya but Sketchup will do the job perfectly! I'll warn you though, the 3D blocks is the easiest, fastest part of this process. All details other than the blocks were painted patiently by hand: cables, vehicles, windows, lights, roofs and building designs and the character, aside from it's face, are painted. If you enjoy the modeling though, you can try and model the whole thing in 3D if that's what you like. ^^ I used the simple 3D blocks to help get the perspective right, that's all. Have fun!
