future cityscape concept WIP 5 by toiletbear future cityscape concept WIP 5 by toiletbear

future cityscape concept for digital matte painting class.
will have to be completed in TWO DAYS (gah deadline!)

ultimately the image / landscape is going to pan across horizontally using Adobe After Effects. there will also be moving space ships

EDIT 3/5/08: added texture and more dynamic lighting!

EDIT 3/18/08: put another 5 hours into it. detailing / saturating colors etc. yes i know i need to push some buildings back it does feel a bit 2-D.

EDIT 3/20/08: should be pretty much done. (except ships and arches)

Hi, I absolutely love your work, I imagine visions of the future all the time along with many other people around the world, and I can see similar scenes, there is a top quality website called which is full of conspiracy, Armageddon and end times prediction threads, hundreds of thousands of people use the message boards for civilised discussions every day, who are not artistic at all but they will connect with your artwork like it was one of there own visions, just as I have done.

I am putting together a thread for the website with an emphasis on the fact that if millions of people around the world have such vivid imagination, dreams and vision of the future, then surely looking beyond all the end of the world prophesy almost proves in a way that the future is still to come in one form or another.

I am asking you for your permission to feature your artwork along with around twenty other artists, on the site, in the thread, with strict instructions not to copy it, and with full recognition to you, so that people can appreciate the dreams and visions of others and perhaps look beyond the panic of the demise of the human race, with all the Armageddon discussion and be prepared to fight for a better way of life for all.

There is no financial gain or any other benefit for me or anyone else by doing this, it is simply to get exposure for your artistic vision, and help others take a look outside the box.

I won't feature your work without permission and I will link you to the thread if it is given.

Kind regards, Ed

I don't like the pyramid. It reminds me of Vegas. I hate Vegas. God, I hate Vegas.

It's like the Manhattan (NNYC) of Futureama only fifty times better!

I suppose that Empire State Building was made to last!

The Pyramid seems a little out of place though, and I'm guessing the arches are some sort of bridges? And some needle-like towers emerging from the low rises on the right half would help comlete the piece it seems.

Agree! That'd be awesome, but in architecture people are way too accustomed and careful, when thinking about something fresh and new.. :/
