The City of Al Aauim

Sign in to follow this  


     The city of Al Aauim. 5.5 million people strong. The largest city in Africa. It's location on the coast, as well as jammed in-between the mountains, the city is drenched in rain almost 90% of the year. The rich and the poor are contrasted drastically in the city. Gleaming skyscrapers house the rich, towering over the slums packed together on the mountainsides. At night, The many lights can be seen as far away as Lemsid. Neon lights, millions of ad-space. All produce the blinding light of the city inbetween the many mountain peaks, In the forge-like valley it resides in.

Sweet update, marsh! I love the spacing between the skyscrapers. It makes the overall impression more realistic. Also, you have a great combination of diagonal and orthogonal BATs, which contributes to breaking the grid. The result is, as always, breathtaking.

Excellent work as always Marsh! Your work is always good, but it's your photoediting skills which most impress me!

Wow, it really looks fab but seems bit dead for a city of 5.5 million, even in Africa there would be traffic

hey marsh, already seen some of your work in the pic competition over on sc4d It's a shame they don't allow mosaics because you would win them all ;) Your use of flora is really inspiring and I'm also wondering which watermod you're using. Especially the first pic, that water would look pretty in my region too. Or is it the result of your photoshop skill? Anyway, keep up the good work, cheers. V.

So, I had my cowboy hat on, and ready to sing Wild Wild West by Will Smith, and you take us back to Africa...
Hmmm, oh well, still a beautiful city!
