The City

Author Comments

This is an illustration I created for a Sci-Fi book I wrote a few years back. It took me six months and was the first and only time I ever reached Photoshop's layer limit (I think it was 999).

The tree was designed by someone I once knew, who wished to remain anonymous. I then added textures and color to blend it with the surroundings. The city itself is a mixture of 3D buildings created in Photoshop, drawings and photographs.

The original image's resolution is high enough to identify certain cameo appearances by friends and family in the park. Other secrets: multiple stories of what is going on at this moment in the image and a few naked women in the public pool.


I think the saddest part...

is that without a tree, they would all die...


Is there away we could view the original res?

I think I'm becoming a fan.

This is wonderful, and amazing. It makes me want to read your Sci-fi book. Are you selling prints of this picture? Oh and, the horizon seems kinda wrong to me.

It looks amazing

The tree reminds me of the tree from the movie The Fountain, kind of, it really looks awesome there in the middle of the whole thing. It would be awesome if you could put the huge-resolution version somewhere where people(including me :D) could see it, so that people (me:D) could spot the little secrets you put in :D


De verdad, excelente
