    ok, decided to give this thing a go and was hoping for some crits and comments from you guys. its only a wip so theres no detail or anything yet looking more for comments on atmosphere and composition.

    thanks

    Looks like a great start to me; I love your work, and am anxious to see what your final submission will look like. What I am wondering about at this stage of your drawing is the size and perspective of the buildings vis-a-vis the foreground grasses. Are the structures on the right side buildings or disintegrating concrete pillars? I think the early rendering fails to convey the depth and distance between structures, though I am sure subsequent detail passes will remedy this problem in short order.

    I wish this assignment had come a week later. I'll be going back to visit NYC for an entire week starting on the 9th..... would've been good inspiration. Just take a tablet and computer to a coffee shop in Greenwich Village and paint...

    Sime - I like your atmosphere and colours. Composition looks tight in a good way but leaves the form of the most interesting buildings on the background up for guesses. I think they're the only thing that look as far in the future as 3000.

    I took a wilder approach:

    Not sure if this is a good enough idea, it is still very basic, but here is what I have so far. I plan on making Brooklyn bridge, covered in water and useless whilst the city is surrounded by a futuristic wall. Will possibly add flying vehicles, boats or something. We'll see.
    SIME and smuli: Nice starts! Very different atmospheres.

    cheers for the comments guys - much appreciated and will be put to gud use ;P
    smuli - youve got some nice forms going on here although some of the spherical ones in the background look a little flat compared to the one in the foreground, it may be worth trying to make these a bit more believable obviously without making them too overpowering for the foreground.

    zimfin - good choice to submerge the bridge like that, could give a very eerie feel to the depths!

    I had a go at it, this is what I have got so far, not sure I like it though. The premise was that the sky has become so hot and polluted as to be inhabitable, so the people have to live under the flood waters in makeshift houses built from whatever they could scavenge.
    Critics would be appreciated.

    I realised my bridge looked crap perspective-wise so I went into Sketchup, made a model and replaced the old bridge. I also removed most of the actual bridge so the river would have been open to traffic without snagging on the bridge. It is all very basic at the mo but I am getting a better idea of where I am heading with this. Crits welcome.

    zimfin... well thought out... dyking the the city like Holland to maintain it even below water level. you might want to think about howhigh the water inrelationship to the builings if it is at that level on the bridge.. ad for Dyke building you could ref holland if you wanted to. giggle we could just go back to "New Amsterdam......." this is just me thinking out loud. good work

    Thanks! Lol, New Amsterdam sounds good to me.
    Until you mentioned it, I never noticed that the water levels never matched up! At the very least, I should have the buildings hidden a bit behind the wall. Having said that, after 1000 years, there should be a growth of buildings either out above the water, (using future tech) or massively taller buildings also using future tech. Hmm, lots for me to think about. I'm worried if I change the skyline too much, only the bridge can help people realise it is NY.
