I wanted to create an image, without using a lot of brush-work but instead let the shape-tool and lasso do most of the work. I also wanted it to look realistic. While looking for inspiration I found work by Dylan Cole.
I really like the feel of the image. The calmness of the shapes and the simple color-palette.
I wanted to have an uprising composition from the lower-left to the upper right.
I started with the sky and one by one added layer after layer of city shapes. Just the shapes. I didn't want it to be a complete rip-off, so I added my own designs and some people.
This is the end-result.
