The City part2

Here are more examples of the environment. Inspirations include Blade Runner, Metropolis...Those movies really struck a cord with me mostly due to their epic scale. But, as you see, I really want a diverse personality to the city. Parts are inspired by Roman designs, parts Shanghai, then other parts are punk scene references.

A big help to me has been the books "New York in the Thirties" by Berenice Abbott, "The Metropolis of Tomorrow" by Hugh Ferriss, and "Film Architecture" by Dietrich Neumann.

Next week we'll talk characters.
