Digital Artist in Vancouver, Canada: Toni's ArtStation.
The quintessential look at a Cyberpunk mega city. The detail, scale and composition create a breath-taking look at a terrifying future that feels all too real.
3D Generalist / Motion Designer in Las Pinas, Philippines: Gabriel's ArtStation.
Gabriel's disparate hero is blasted into another realm from their suffocating Cyberpunk reality and the journey is terrifying, and trippy!
Senior 3d Artist specialized in Arch-Viz in Gütersloh, Germany. Joe's ArtStation.
Besides portraying the best noodles in town, Joe avoided the night shot/foggy cliché that we see so much (but still love!) in the cyberpunk genre. The idea was to create an everyday feel and this piece certainly achieved that in a uniquely bold way!
Concept Artist from Leeds, United Kingdom: Nathan's ArtStation.
Nathan's composition and shape language give the viewer so much to observe and absorb without completely overwhelming them -- a difficult feat to achieve well in a thoughtful and emotional rendition with a classic cyberpunk feel.
Skie Graphics Studio
Freelance enthusiast of art, graphics and websites in Rome, Italy: Skie Graphics Studio's Website.
Sharp contrasts and smart composition give this piece an edgy story and make its car star quite compelling!
