Utopolis by inmc Utopolis by inmc
This is an image I had in mind for a long time. A big SF city like those from the old science-fiction movie Metropolis seen from a passengers perspective. It was created in May 2000. My inspiration for this image came from Metropolis and from some even older H.G.Wells books. In these times scyscrapers and planes where pretty new and the first signs of a future world which is now reality.



If you liked this picture you may be interested to see more of my science-fiction themed 3D art.

I thought this was a photograph, but then I saw the category. Great! It looks amazing. Still, I have a small point of critique if I'm allowed...

I think you could have done more with light/color to create a more interesting image. You've done it alright on the buildings on the left and right side of your image, but the buildings in the middle could have used some more color variations to create some more depth into your image. Right now it is a bit too much the same grey tone in the middle buildings.

Hope I did not offend you. The perspective and your skills to even make this are amazing anyway. :boogie:

It reminds me a lot of Star Wars' Coruscant, though you never get to see the city like that... except briefly when Anakin and Obi-wan chase the bounty hunter that tried to kill Padme :o

Photographic, maybe at the first look, but it will not fool you if you look close.

Brilliant stuff :) Love the perspective

Imo it would have been better if you'd used a spaceship of some sort instead of an aeroplane, the buildings are just so futuristic looking it doesn't really match =P

But that's just my ideas, nice work :)

Futurism is 100 years old and Art Deco skyscrapers like Empire State Building or Chrysler Building are about 80 years old and still look futuristic. :D

Sehr schön. Ich mag die Perspektive und das mit dem Flugzeug find ich süß. Vielleicht hätte das Flugzeug aber ein bisschen futuristischer aussehen können, das passt nicht so ganz zur Zukunftsvision.

Ein klein bisschen mehr Kontrast hätte mir auch ganz gut gefallen, aber generell find ich es gut gelungen.

:iconinmc:
inmc Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Ja, am Kontrast hätte ich noch ein wenig drehen können.
Das soll halt die Zukunft sein, so wie man sie sich vor 100 Jahren vorgestellt hat. Und da wurde der Futurismus ja gerade erst erfunden.

Dann finde ich, hätten die Farben noch ein bisschen steampunkiger sein können, so ein bisschen in Richtung Bronze und Kupfer. Und das Flugzeug dann eher sowas wie ne JU 52, das hätte meiner Meinung nach noch ein bisschen mehr Flair.
