I've tried to get some detailed environment with copy pastin' method for base sketch. Took couple of textures and photos, mashed them with overlays etc to get the basic concept and composition I had in my head and moved on from there with getting the whole mess into final shape which you can see above.

Metropolis by ~tiger1313
Suggester said: A congested extremely crowded urbanized city! A gritty future with high rise buildings that has the picturesque look and feel of a dark sci-fi movie. The lighting creates a great mood of the shadowed parts of some old future "alleys" and creates curious questions on what the two figures might be contemplatin! ( Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by taenaron )
excellent details, this is so realistic that it looks more than a photo, than a drawing. what mediums did you used? pencil and pen, or tablet/digital means?

also, im curious, how long did it take you to do this? it seems amazing.

BTW: this looks alot like HELGAN, the city if the helgast in killzone 2, (the videogame in ps3), and both the grim atmosphere of the planet, and the language written in the billboards seem quite similar.

plz do more like this, you are good!

Love the realism of it all, it has a sense of grandeour but it's obviously a zone only for the lower classes. Really transports you in another setting.

Seems inspired by Hong Kong. Or is Ghost in the Shell?

So, you're Maciej Kuciara? That is the name of the artist who produced this artwork.

How can I become good like you or any other concept artist out there? Art school or no art school, and what did you do to progress yourself?
