Die Database by spoonbard Die Database by spoonbard
This is a commission I finished recently that has taken months to get through! The heavy detail aside, I've had a large number of projects to sort out, and this one ended up having to fall in-between the rest.

The commissioner is planning to create a multi-media fiction called Runaway Girl Army, featuring this band Die Database and their group of fans. When it's launched, it'll be hosted on runawaygirlarmy.com (which currently redirects to his personal site, junkmagnet.com ).

I was asked to create this concert scene, which focuses on the band, and two other main characters who are in the crowd. The setting is slightly in the future, hence the holographic effects going on. Most of it was done without specific visual reference, but a lot of text description. A number of crowd members are cos-playing Shiina Ringo outfits though, and the band is also covering a Shiina Ringo song.

Follow RunawayGirlArmy on twitter for more info :)

That is particularly awesome. I am enjoying the colourscheme very much - colours I don't think I'd ever have picked myself, but they work spectacularly! And they marry the composition very well - it feels very balanced. Which is impressive considering the amount of detail. :)

I think the surrounding can use a little more contrasts so that the underground mood would be stronger. K-On must be getting onto you too.

I love cyberpunky stuff like this. Not so much cyberpunk as underground/club, but they usually use a very similar graphic style to do it.

At a real gig there'd be like a million people all taking pictures/videos on their phones, unless this is far enough into the future that something has superceeded that.

Well, this certainly would be a rad way to experience a concert. I could imagine Ozric Tentacles using holograms on stage. That would be far out.
