Floodliners

Here's an environment piece I've been doing for my personal project, which I've now officially dubbed 'Floodliners' (=name for the people living along the floodlines).

As you can see I'm steering away from the high scifi look I initially started with in my previous thumbnails. I've decided to go for a more post-apocalyptic world, where tsunamis have flooded most of the lands, causing land to become extremely vaulable (=reason for conflict between factions).

Above, an idea I had for the lair of one of the local crimebosses; a cruiseship that got stuck between the rocks during The Great Flood, now the perfect place to monitor who comes in and out of the harbour.

I've also started work on a floating city (= where I'll be able to reuse some of the chinatown ideas from my previous post), so stay tuned :)

That's absolutely mind-blowing. Post-apocalyptic landscapes are always exciting, but this one is especially unique. It looks like some shanty towns in South America.

Fantastic artwork - as always - I am IN LOVE with the cruise liner. Brilliant!
