The Lost Empire by faustsketcher The Lost Empire by faustsketcher
The concept for this pic would be "what if japan hadn't opened its fronteers?" I just imagined a developed society, with high buildings, but yet with a feudal look, considering japan was still sort of feudal on the s XIX and hadnt changed much on the past centuries, i guess it woudlnt really change within 200 more years, considering it would be completly isolated formt eh rest fo the world.

So i jsut saw sort of big cities, with traditional buildings-skycrapers, and sort of main skyscrapers, all conected with wooden bridges, with tht sort of magical look under the lights of torches.

Once again, japanese related stuff, though this time i did work hard on it LOL x'D

spent like 7 hrs at least, maybe even 8. But just loved doing it, specially the little lights at the bottom representing the people ont eh barelly visible streets, or the people (which you prolly can't even see) crossing the bridges.

Awesome perspective and lines, and a very cool concept... feels more Chinese than Japanese to me though
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I would have loved to see people on the roofs, as it feels a bit like "I am Legend"
Great job nonetheless.

yo también me pregunto cómo serían sus ciudades si no hubiesen abierto sus fronteras! habrían inventado la bombilla? qué tipo de energía utulizarían para sus posiblemente motorizados medios de transporte?
