Imagine cities, that large that it all is built in levels. One on top of another. Like it's kind of happening in Hong Kong today. Your position in society is reflected by on what level you live. Now this society has risen up so high that it couldn't stand on its own feet anymore. Society, as well as the architecture, starts to fall apart. The ignorance of wanting it all more bigger and larger than large doomed them to break apart. Only a few search and rescue teams, all volunteers, mustered up the strength to go out there. Millions of people trappend in this catastrophe, finally realizing the downfall of their, once so strong and inspiring, empire.

Well, that could be one of many interpretations of what's going on in the picture.

Reads a bit like the idea behind Coruscant in Star Wars or the Mega Cities in Judge Dredd.

Very, nice indeed. :)

My thoughts exactly. Sometimes, people just don't realize their on the brink 'till they fall over. With a city like that, it might even be literal in some instances.

Love this piece. The texture, the subject, the details and lighting. Easily one of my favorites :worship:

Your description makes me glad I live in the present day...as breathtaking as such a city would be to see, I wouldn't want to live in one, especially considering I'd be on the lower half of the vertical ladder of social status :lol:

Looks cool man, but the ship looks kinda off and its a little hard to make out what it actually is at first. The city looks really good in the back.

Good job.
