    last century NYC

    this is my latest painting. it took me 36 to 40 hours to do at 6 K resolution. its NY like i imagine it to look in the year 1900 after being abandoned suddenly.

    Beautifully done! It really has the right feel.

    One small crit, if I may. The curved swash under Tenenbaum's Laboratory is the only thing that seems out of place. That sort of graphic element didn't show up until the 1950s. In 1900 the design would be Victorian or Art Nouveau.

    This is gorgeous!

    One question though... the thing hanging on the electrical line in the foreground... is that a light? Just seems a little too modern to me... but then I'm no expert at early 20th century Electricity.

    Nice work, beautiful and very spooky. I like the signs...a lot. They give so much realism to the place and somehow make it seem more deserted.
    Maybe an anachronism here and there, but then it's alternate history so who's to say?

    Awesome work!

    My only (minor) criticism is with the skyscraper in the background—there was only one building that tall in New York in 1900 (the Park Row Building), and it didn't look anything like that. (Also, the building you have looks like it's from the 1920s or 1930s. The characteristic setback shape of a Manhattan skyscraper (the Empire State Building, etc.) is the result of a zoning law passed in 1916—tall buildings in New York from before that time are much boxier.)

    It's probably not worth repainting the picture for (I doubt anyone except New Yorkers and history buffs would notice), but it's always a good idea to do some historical research for stuff like that.

    Great work. I'm not sure about historical accuracy, but I'm not an historian. I see all the Bioshock fans caught the Andrew Ryan's Plamids reference.

    Giacomo already covered the skyscrapers, I also don't think New York ever had streetlights of that design (here's a page on early NY lampost design, FWIW).
    But does any of that really matter? No! Historical accuracy aside, I love it.

    as i had the chance to watch the process, and the solid fast workflow along with this, it's great from beginning to end. You always travel a cinematic atmosphere in your pieces, super detailed, as always!!
