Just in time for BR 2? (or not).  Great image with real atmosphere.  Feel like there's a story in there somewhere...

Not too fond on paintings that have that video-game aspect, but yours is excellently done.

I agree... I would want to make certain my blaster was loaded and at the ready while I was walking around this city!

Reminds me of Syd Mead. I hope Blade Runner 2 is in he works. With today's technology it would be unbelievable.

Ah yes, a  Syd Mead disciple. Syd's work was always inspirational and simple in it's scale. Your design reminds me of Place Bonaventure in Montréal. It's a futuristic interpretation of the building but with the scale/size being most memorable. It's fascinating looking back at how we see places as children. Everything was so big and wondrous. Thank you for sharing. Cheers.

The only photo textures on this one were used as a base for the building lights, heavily painted over to suit the image.

The blimp! The gigantic neon sign/hologram! Definitely reminiscent of a cleaner, sleeker Blade Runner. I enjoy this immensely.

Wow! This looks amazing! The arrangement of the buildings leads the viewer's eye on a zig-zag path into the distance and up to the blimp. Excellent composition! Another thing I like is the tremendous detail inside the closest building. It really looks like there's an inside to that building. This is an outstanding piece of artwork!
