Hyper York: Underground Chinatown by inetgrafx Hyper York: Underground Chinatown by inetgrafx
Here's a new concept painting showcasing an underground asian district. I called it Hyper York, since I got inspired by one of my trips to New York last year. I tried to keep the "sci-fi" as minimal as possible to still keep it somewhat believable ...

Painted in Photoshop CS6 within 6-7hours on and off ...
Let me know what you think.

I've also updated my website ([link]) ... finally after almost 7 years :-S
Let me know what you think,

PS.: I've uploaded a higherres version of it on my website in 1080p

Daily Deviation

All i can say is wow! This is a very creative piece full of originality and beauty! I love how you can see the buildings in the back ground with subtle streaks of light from other flying cars like the awesome detailed one up front! i also like the signs because they look a lot like the signs you'd see in new york or in china town. This really has a feel that you can just walk into the scene and explore this vast and amazing city! I love the idea, love the technicality and LOVE it all! Great work!
What do you think?

What struck me most about this was the notion of interconnected buildings meaning that pedestrians could walk all over the city at multiple levels - and indeed due to population, may well need to.

Very nice.

Cyberpunk anyone?
The concept and painting techniques are executed very well.

However, that floating car is a bit out of place for me. It's because of the color is too white.
While I think it could be the a little more fancy in color.
And the "lightning tube sign" is a bit unbalance.

Anyway, this still a great work. Keep up good work man!
