The City by dominuself The City by dominuself
The universe of Thief is centered mostly on a dense, sprawling metropolitan complex only known as "The City" so here is my vision of this industrialized and overgrown dystopian place, where magic and technology colide.

This is wonderful!Heart  I love the lights,the shadows and all the little details,the contrast between the top of the picture and the bottom reminds me really of the City and its polluted air. The building of AngelWatch in the upper part of the background is a nice touch as the little keeper's glyph in the corner.

Gotta love that classic Thief. :) You really captured the feel of The City here!
I don't really like the direction they're taking with the reboot, and would rather they continue the series as it was, but I'll still be playing it.

I like it, how you designed the shadows.
The athmosphere seems verry oppressing to me and fits the dark mood of the thief games.
well done!

I've been trying to comment on this for weeks but I didn't have words. You've managed to capture the perfect blend of industrialism and residence that the City is supposed to be. Everything is as it should be. Dark, dirty, rusty and smoky.

Oh and is that snow too? I don't se any snow on any of the structures or any icicles, so it must be something else.

I haven't thought on that as snow but as ashes and dust, but it could be snow, who knows? :)

I actually thought it could be ash too. Since there are a lot of smokestacks in the City. Nice.

Very beautiful. I love the streetlamp design. I always loved how freaking weird those things are, it's great to see it included - it totally makes it 'the city'.
