Nothing like a woman with two guns jumping into a futuristic city! Certainly my favorite sci fi trope. :) Wonderful job on the perspective.

XD Indeed! Thanks, although I can't take full credit for the perspective given that the background is done in 3D here.

? You mean like uncoloured linework? It wouldn't be that attractive since it's mostly 3D work.

I agree with ~AaronSmurfMurphy!

The perspective is amazing! I see this as a film still.

Good lord that's a pretty picture. All the geometric buildings, the reflections, the scale, the reflections, the muted colour pallete, the REFLECTIONS.

Really impressed with this.

Epic dude you are so awesome with these things! I envy you!
The rendered bg is pretty cool too, even if it does have the computer look to it!

I was all like ..."..8O!!! Five-point perspective NINJA!!" and then I was like..."....no! 8O WAIT! 8O ... 3D ULTIMATE STEALTH ATTACK BONUS ROBOT ASSASSINACHU!!!!!!" haha

Looks well nice man! If I used such a word in such a context, I would say "SICK!". But skateboards make a fool of me so i'm gonna have to settle with UGHUGUGUGHHUHYEAH!!!!!!

As usual, it looks realistic! One thing that I am impressed with is the reflection on every reflectable surface, and the detail that comes with it.

Yeah, that took a *long* time to render, about 5 or 6 hours of solid processing in 3D max

Yeah, totally! Although sometimes it can become more complex than if you just took the time to draw it ><

Why is everything so dark? With such a bright sky and many reflective surfaces, it doesn't make much sense. And my eyes keep being drawn by the brighter flat surfaces that surround the character, instead of her. (I'm sure the way my screen makes everything a bit darker doesn't really help.) I do like the colors and composition, though.

The light source is low behind the buildings, and the city is smoggy. It is a shame she doesn't stand out so much, but the focus is the city in this rather than the character :)

Great use of 3D. I suspected it was but it could just as easily been hand drawn, which I guess is the goal, so mission accomplished.
