Modernity District


This district is a glass and steel monument of watchful control and order for all looking to cultivate their lives among the world's greatest artists in the world's greatest economy.


"Blade Runner" is an iconic movie that the science fiction genre still pulls inspiration from.  With that in mind I put together a "Blade Runner" inspired city that I wanted to have the feeling of being futuristic, ominous and dark.  The cityscape was a design combination of two of the most densely populated cities in the world, New York and Tokyo.  This reference point lead my painting and design process through my initial idea of a city a little too dark and sparse; to something too industrialized and factory-like to, finally, a large dense metropolis illuminated by street lights and office windows.
