Future city by VoughtVindicator Future city by VoughtVindicator
I had been wanting to do this for a while. I have drawn future cities since I was a child and I figured I should do that again, abeit this time vertically.

This one's Tokyo, Japan, Eastasia; for the 24th century universe project you have already seen some stuff for. I put the current Tokyo Tower for scale, and also a bunch of explanations for each level.

Additionally, I didn't draw the subsurface levels, because I lacked paper.

Levels of the city that never see the sun? Wow...has a bit of a dystopian feel to it.

Also: the entry pointing out the "eccentric young man" made me chuckle.

After all, the only way to expand cities at that point is upwards, and for that you need to basically bury the older portions of the city under the new urban development. At first the citizens are pretty unaccustomed to living their entire lives under a roof, so they set up holographic projectors on the ceilings of their streets and public spaces to project holographic skies.

Huh. That's clever.

So if they spent their entire lives looking up at a "fake" sky, would the real deal blow their minds?

Well, it would probably impress them, given the real deal isn't used to showcase public announcements or ads, and it doesn't break down.

Nicely done :D

Hmm this reminds me of BLAME's Cyber city , which also built vertically .. till it reach orbit , the city's populations mainly consist with Cybernetic organisms or androids... Humans however are rare .
