CJRFM New LONDON concept by SCIFIJACKRABBIT CJRFM New LONDON concept by SCIFIJACKRABBIT
Spliff the Raccoon TEAM HAPPI BOMB // CJRFM

Art Jack Stevenson 2011

I feel particularly accomplished about this one

Concept art showing what kind of environment my OC's will be dwelling in. NEW LONDON. (alturnate universe city set in the year twenty XY or sumthin like that XD obviously inspired by London)

When most think of London (usually foreigners) They usually conjure up thoughts of Big Ben or the London Eye or Trafalgar Square. Personally as a Londoner myself I find such sights rather boring. Im much more interested in the urban lesser known to the outside world areas. Dirty... abandoned ... over grown in moss and urban decay. Ruddy council estates, baron warehouses.. that sort of thing... oh and of corse The famous London Underground train system.

These traits of Englands capital greatly inspire my Fantasy city in which my world will take place.

Ive also been playing alot of Fallout and reading Romantically Apocalyptic so yeah soz if apocalyptic settings aint your thing XD

Right: London Underground Train line overhead structure. But random but I think its a good example of the detail I am able to produce ^w^

Left: Good ol' Spliff about the smoke his last joint just outside the estate. ;P

I feel the colours came out great!

PLEASE COMMMENT! I LOVE FEEDBACK!!!

that's awesome :D
you should have a look at 'urban porridge' because London has a pretty bad case of that! it's basically where none of the buildings match each other, where they weren't planned as a whole, you get really old buildings next to newish buildings next to brick terrace houses, ect...

yeah, only really seen in England, most other places tear down the old buildings and replace them

I like this. So has some kind of tragedy/apocalypse hit New London? Or is it just some areas are prone to..... deferred maintenance? The moss really likes it. Is the sign supposed to say "Kenton" but the final n fell off? *curious*

Its simply just a poorer less maintained area of "New London" ;P Kinda like real London XD also it is Kento. Its a made up area. "KENTO estate residence" since "New London" is part of a somewhat an alternate futuristic universe with anthro's replacing humans XD

There will be alot of reference to actual London boroughs though ;P

Thank you for the explanation. I already have lots of ideas what I imagine this part of town being like...besides all the moss everywhere. Lots more signs of "deferred maintenance", as they euphemistically call it, the tube station probably has interesting smells, places where water leaks, lights that flicker and buzz, and escalators that are interesting to ride....WHEN THEY WORK....and would be the oldest outside a museum!

i'd love to know more about this world!
