Update! Tutorial on 3D backgrounds found here 3D background Tutorial by yuumei :D

Enjoy this wallpaper~ :)

This is the first test of a full procedural generated city in 3DS MAX that I then painted over in SAI to take away the 3D look.

For more information on how I did this and other examples, please visit my tumblr post at maid-en-china.tumblr.com/post/…

This 3D plus hand paint over process reduces the time of drawing detailed city backgrounds by many folds :D I am still new at learning 3D city generation so this whole process took me about 6 hours from start to end, which is still a lot faster than hand painting from scratch.

I will post tutorials on how to do this once I get back from Anime Expo and San Diego Comic Con. Speaking of AX, I will be in the artist alley for all 4 days at tables A-16 to A18 :D I hope to see you there!!! More info plus map of table location at fav.me/d552jib

This is absolutely beautiful! When I first clicked on it, I thought it was a picture, it looked that realistic! The only small thing I ask is, why the dark outlines on the buildings? Is that, like, the style you use, or were you trying something new? Because I'd suggest for wallpapers and scenery drawings that you don't outline it. Let it blend into the surroundings. If you looked at your arms, you don't see black or even darker peach outlining your arms around the outside, right?
sorry, that was my only constructive criticism. Otherwise, great job! Definitely going into my favorites!
