Daan Road, Taipei Metro by Sayanim Daan Road, Taipei Metro by Sayanim
Update: Added two patrol gunboats to the left, inspired by Seal Team Two's frequently used (and beloved) STAB boats used in Vietnam.

Update: Added flying cars, vegetation, neon signs close and afar, and a Shabu-Shabu-like store to the left.

Update: Added window lighting and a few details.

Update: Added atmospheric lighting and a few neon signs.

Update: Detailing out some of the structures...added or bolstered balconies and rooftop-like platforms.

Update: Added some details on the buildings, and perhaps more significantly, I've added the actual street layout image from Daan Road Section No. 1 in Taipei, Taiwan. Google maps rock!

Through the most unimaginable set of crazy circumstances for which I've come to deeply thankful for...
God has lead me "back" into concept development work.
This particular piece is the beginning-stage comp of a futuristic metropolis concept art I'm painting.
It is merely a personal project, although it reflects the kind of sci-fi concept development work I've been privileged to work on lately.
(I cannot share my other paintings due to confidentiality agreements)

I'm calling this piece something like "Section No.1, Daan Road 大安路一段" because it is inspired by an actual street in my hometown Taipei.
It is one of the streets for I grew up in.
Only blocks away from two SOGO Dept. Stores, Daan Road Section 1 is a narrow yet affluent street, filled with high-end boutique shops, salons and brash businessmen & bankers driving their Mercedes Benzes...
Growing up here makes me a pretty privileged kid. Albeit a extremely lonely one.
Speaking of which - Money is either a awesome servant, or a ruthless taskmaster.
