Whoa! This is excellent. By any chance, might you have ever read Hardwired by Walter Jon Williams? That's my own favorite cyberpunk novel. Or that maybe tied even with Snow Crash. I go back and forth. I currently have a contract to translate Hardwired into Esperanto for free distribution on-line as ebooks. When done it will make for the fifth whole novel I will have done. That and a number of short stories also. Just a little hobby of mine.

So, if Hardwired might be a favorite also of yours, and you should feel in a generous mood at any time in the coming year or so, then the e-book will be needing a cover. I don't earn a dime for all my efforts. In fact it costs me some to purchase rights and to maintain the ad-free distribution website. My proofreaders likewise contribute their efforts for free, as have all the artists to date. So, just on the off chance that Hardwired might be a favorite of yours, this is me, shamelessly trying to mooch upon your very fine talent for a free cover (copyright to remain, of course, entirely your own). Hoping this doesn't offend...

Heyho thanks for your comment, i haven't read Hardwired, though i am quite fond of the cyberpunk genre so i'll check it out thanks ! :)
Snow Crash on the other hand i did read and liked it alot though i feel the ending was kinda sudden and left me wanting.

Regarding the request, no i do not work for free. Unless it's for my family ^^

Healthy mind makes a healthy body thus a environmental achievement. It looks a true place and the characters have got social creadability. They look down to earth with spiritual luicidity.

This is one of the most beautiful scenes I've ever seen. i love the costumes the two hookers by the window are wearing and that see-through plastic jacket is straight outta BladeRunner. I do have a question - how many of these women are purely organic, given that I think I see an articial froearm on the woman in brown by the window?

In the future this image was created for body augmentation are pretty common place, just like sexual freedom and the importance of self expression. While I love Bladerunner this image was more inspired by the ideas in Shadowrun and their "neon and chrome" aestethics :)

I like that aesthetic, too. I hope ou produce more on this theme.
Oh, the reason I mentioned the transparent mac is that Zhora wears a very similar one in BladeRunner.

nah, just thought it's a logic progression from the "more is less" clothing style that is coming into fashion more and more if you take a look into history.

Dear Celarx

What software did you use to make this and where did you pull the figures from?

I like to content and think you're a genius.

As ever,

Thank you for your welcome. Now tell me, are you using a graphic tablet? If so what kind? I looking at Tooya X because a friend recommended it. It seems pretty middle of the road as far as technology. I can't seem to find any work made on it when I search. Do you have any recomendations

so far I have used only wacom tablets and can happily recommend them to everyone. The size and version you want is totally up to you and what you want to use it for.

du solltest aber für jedes benutzte foto die quelle angeben. falls es sich zb um stocks handelt ist es oft verboten ohne quelle zu benutzen und auch so könnte es ja copyrightgeschützt sein

This is really cool! I've seen the GIF and was amazed, by the way you builded this up (think I'm going to try it myself, I'm curious). Anyway, really good scene :) I like the crowd in the BG.

thanks, photobashing is "usually" all about speed and for inhouse work when you are working in a studio, so good thing to practice this.
this image wasn't for in studio therefore i was able to spent WAY to much time on rendering and painting over but this makes it a better image for the gallery.
Thanks for your comment :)
