This work is something that was kicked off by my feelings of revitalization in the bestest sci-fi genre ever, cyberpunk. Man, once you go cyberpunk, you're forever a cyberpunk.
It's also my first foray in somewhat matte-painting thing, as it's the only means by which I think I can create a believable cityscape backdrop.
I went for something classic, old-school - Asia, neon, clunky guns, implants and cybernetics galore, flu masks and organ shops. It's the most correct stuff that I now can do to translate my vision of a true cyberpunk setting, and I feel that this picture - which I present in original and filtered colors, since I see them both valid - is a major artistic breakthrough of mine, in terms of technical skill.
It's my tribute to a genre and vision that pretty much shaped a lot of what I am today - a work of love and dedication, if you will.
So I invite you to enjoy some good-old cyberpunk as well.
