Mega-City by DarinK Mega-City by DarinK
This scene was inspired by "Dredd". After watching the movie I became fascinated with the idea of huge cities with enormous buildings that hold tens of thousands of people. So I decided to create a mega city, but located on another planet.

This was done using 3ds Max, Vue 10, and Photoshop. I started out with a plain base render then added a lot of detail in Photoshop. The original size is 5500X3438; I downsized to 1920X1200 and the quality degraded somewhat, but I guess that's to be expected when that many pixels are thrown away.

Click the "Download Image" button to check it out in full-view.

All elements are my own design, creation, and stock except for the planet and moon textures which are courtesy of NASA: [link].

You can use this as a wallpaper for non-commercial use, if anyone is interested in using this commercially send me a message.

Amazing work. The only thing that bugs me is the look of the person. You should have put more detail in him / her.

Good film!!

Shame it flopped - apparantly.

I liked the setting myself too - this is a wonderful piece!

Holy crap but that window shot would make a fabulous series of panels to put on a wall. It's totally awesome!

You have created something that is beyond incredible. This is the science fiction that I love, realistic, and probably how we will end up in the future. Well done!

Looks wonderful. If that was Dredd's silhouette I probably be gushing right now with comic boy nerdom even with the fact that isn't the moon in the sky. Well done. :)
