RETROCITY / The wall

This is the outside wall of Retrocity, created for my upcoming game.
This is also an updated version of an illustration created more than a decade ago for my graphic novel "Memories of Retrocity".
It was a challenge to give a new updated look to the city while preserving the "noir" and gritty aspect of it.

I might as well show the old version while I am at it, so here you go, two versions of the same place, with more than a decade of experience between the two artworks.
These pictures are photo based more than they are painted, so the 10 years of experience shows in the management of composition, mood and confidence in the craft.
