    Cool Los Angeles November 2019

    The Fourth Sector is just south of S-5's Animoid Row and inland from S-3 ChinaTown, holds many of New City L.A.'s hottest clubs and wet tech boutiques. Always busy with Scenesters, Otaku, Mod-jockeys, off-work Salarymen and 24-7 PartyPeopletm it is the place to meet for many of those liquid enough to afford its pleasures. It is also one of just 5 sectors in the New City in which the 'Off-World Colony' ad blimp is forbidden to fly.

    Awesome work everyone.

    I had to give my vote to rayk because I love the light. But my runners up were, well, everyone, actually.

    I think i will pass on voting for this one, for the same reasons a passed on participating. Syd Mead is the father of scifi concept art as we know it ...I think his originality is undeniable, but he is also the most copied.

    problem with that is that a tribute to Blade runner should have been trying to go where he went starting from here...now ...not from where he did in 1980....i dont think anybody achieved that in this challenge...no matter if old school is the trend or not these images could'nt be aplicable in a production today not even if it would be as a tribute.
    that beeing said, almost everybody did a good job at getting the style ....but then again it is all in our collective consciousness.

    sorry if i m being to critical for some, it s only my point of view. And it is really not intended to diminish yours

    good day to you

    when people stop critiquing its because they stopped caring

    Makks44> I have to say that I think Hunger Artist managed to effective reinterpret the Blade Runner style into a relavent and contemporary work. It succeeds in projecting a new vision onto the cyber-ish-ness of the movie. It certainly can't be conceived as a Mead knock-off. It reaches into realms mead never touched by embracing the painterly qualities available via computer illustration, rather than being trapped by the commercial corporate style mead represents.

    Syd Mead may be working today but his work still demonstrates a technical esthic which was developed in the 50's and 60's. He is 'the' classic example of guache and marker corporate futurist concept design. His stint as designer on Blade Runner, Tron and others didn't change his vision or technique. See his recent DVDs to learn how the master works using traditional media in the traditional manner.

    But I think Hunger Artist misses the mark too because it doesn't quite feel like Blade Runner. It reminds me more of 'when gravity fails' and it's warm Islamic cyberpunk feel. Though it could be imagined as an alley behind bio-roid alley from the BR movie, too.

    I would also suggest that none of the pieces entered for this challenge look like Syd Mead's work at all.

    "Syd Mead is the father of scifi concept art as we know it ... his originality is undeniable, but he is also the most copied." Syd Mead's style was a landmark in design but today look as dated as the spaceship from forbidden planet. The idea of designing a Blade Runner tribute using Syd Mead's contemporary work or other contemporary inspiration is destined to failure since it wouldn't in any way resemble Blade Runner. The film was designed with huge gaps in its vision of the future. Cell phones don't seem to exsist. No hint of nano technology, even micronization isn't predicted. They can design animals from scratch even numbering the scales but can't make a smaller air-conditioner. Compare the graphic on a cell phone with the police computers. Making an up to date Blade Runner environmnet would make it utterly unBlade Runner.

    If we were to have an Ancient Rome-themed challenge would you say we should not show Ancient Rome as it appeared Historically but as it appears now? Or would you suggest we shouldn't bother because the Romans already set the bar on Imperial architecture so high, and been so emulated already, that anything we did would be just shadows?

    I am largely joking around but it seems you were just intimidated by the challenge of depicting Blade Runner without aping your hero Syd Mead. I would have really liked to have seen how you would depict a Mead-less Blade Runner homage yet retain the feel of the film. I enjoy your work and think your contrabution would have been very cool. I think your personal reasons for not contributing are fine but your refusal to vote is weird to me, but thats just my opinion.

    I am still holding out for Scott's long rumoured 'Metropolis' Blade Runner spin off project and hope he would again collaborate with Mead to update their vision of the future.

    No offence intended, I think I'm just ranting. Sorry, it happens sometimes. I hope you are going to join us for the Cloud Castle Challenge. I for one am a bit daunted by it but we'll see what happens.

    honestly I threw the topic up there cause folks seemed to want it.
    I can't seem to manage to vote either but thats just due to indecision on my part. Quite honestly all are good but none really knock my socks off.
    ida voted for hideyoshi,... but he won't let me put his in the poll

    Interesting criticism. In process, I started to think about "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", however, I concluded that the brief was for a "Bladerunner" tribute to the exclusion of "..Androids..". So it kinda forces you into a
    Mead/Scott style/vocabulary.

    I woulda like to have seen someone do the roof mountain scape with robo-sheep. That woulda been very cool. Damn I think we'll have to do this again sometime. Though I for one wanted to make the next Blade Runner Challenge an interior, since we all opted for those neon lit rainy streets.

    Chaosrocks, you made us do exteriors by demanding neon reflected in rain. Next time we should do some thick aired Blade Runner interiors flooded with light and drenched in shadows.

    Great topic! I had to watch Blade Runner again last night to help me make a decision (only for the second time this month ) and my vote went for LuckyMunky, I think his work captured the atmosphere the best. And Rayk's but I decided to go for the more neon
    All great work though and I am looking forward to the Blade Runner interior challenge!

    i'm very happy nobody took my critisism the wrong way.

    Lucky Munkey, you could be right saying that i did'nt take the chalenge because i was kinda scared...but I would have to mix it with time issue as i m very busy at work and with freelance contract these days....getting into a city scape with only 3 or 4 hours of free time is indeed a very scary endenvour.

    I would have to add though that Mr Mead is far from beeing my hero...I have immense respect for the guy but being a car designer at heart i have a very critical point of view on his style wich has not really evolved as fast as the world around us...but we cant really blame him for that because car designers of today have learned to design with Mead's images in head. tehn its probably design tradition that made him less original by making is vision part of todays reality.

    I do agree that hunger artist did a great job at a moody concept....but my point was that it does'nt really reflect blade runner's essence...seing this image alone without the context we could nt link it to the proposed subject...Is it really possible to really retake blade runners designs with a new point of view without copying? no one here achieved it and i m quite sure i would nt have either....I guess that was what i wanted to point out......La Joconde is great but....but take it out of its historical context it becomes only a nicely executed painting of a semi good looking half smiling weirdly proportionned women. to reinterpret it would be in my opinion pointless

    when people stop critiquing its because they stopped caring

    maks444,

    I must admit also have immense respect for Mr. Mead, but I also share your 'issues' with much of his auto design. Though I am not in any way a car designer, I have strong opinions on design in the auto industry (and other practical product conceptualization). I agree Mead hasn't adapted his vision to the esthetics or auto technology of today - check out his recent dvd series for a peek at his work today. I also feel he never fully incorporated practical ergonomic constraintsinto his work. Often designing awesome looking cars with no leg or head room or that would require a gymnastic or acrobatic background just to enter, and even then not gracefully, and forget wearing a dress or bulky coat. He often designed purely stylistically without regard to human limitations, presuming technology would catch up, allowing his vision to be realized. But more often than not the mechanics haven't matched up to the concepts. I also, being very opinionated, feel that automotive design peaked in the seventies. Look at a 70's lotus or lambourgini(sp?) they still look futuristic to me, but modern BMW's and Mercedes' look more like economy cars from the 80's than luxury cars of the very near future (which I'd expect them to be). I do see some concept cars which are inspired and futuristic but they have often lost most of this by the time they go into production, if and when they ever do. There are exceptions, of course.

    I think the project wasn't to redesign the movies as much as allow us fan-boy otaku to revel in it. It was an excuse to draw in the style of our collective concept heroes (or at least giants of the concept arts) and put our own spin on their vision. I think their is value in experimenting in other artist's styles. We learn to stretch ourselves to fit them, which lets us enact our own vision with more skill. I would suggest it is as valuable for designers to produce work in a given style as to be able to generate images in their own individual style. Do we turn down a job because the client want's it to look like Syd Mead? I was thinking that a 2001 themed topic would be educational, retro sf in a recognizable style which would fit in the world of the 2001 movie.

    I think that copying is perhaps too harsh a word to describe work that fits a genre. If we did a Camelot/King Arthur themed image, could we even do it without copying the style of fantasy imagery that and still have it recognizable? And would that be pointless too?

    I don't think so.

    But that's just me.
