Neuromancer: Chiba City by PHATandy Neuromancer: Chiba City by PHATandy
This is an updated version of an old concept I did, based on Neuromancer. But new and improved! I would love to know what you guys think about my new vision for it.

Old version back here; (I'm tempted to replace that old one, its a bit naff!)

Awesome.  Trying to find some quotes about Chiba city and I stumbled across this.  Sheesh.  Your name reminded me of Tandy computers too.  Wow I'm old.

SWEEET!

This somehow stirs memories, though I'm not quite certain of what. Maybe just hanging out with my friends in high school, in the various dark hallways of the school or basements of friends' houses. Just like the last picture, I want to run into this scene and explore it!

I also wanna add it to :iconthe-chatsubo: Actually, I wouldn't mind adding *you* to The-Chatsubo! Your invitation will arrive shortly. :D (Unless you're already in the group. I have a bad memory.)

No problem. Have you ever done any scenes from the book?

Nah, I never did anything specific from the book. I was just interested in the world, tech and characters. I did a project at Uni, which was vis-dev for a bunch of stuff.

Awesome work! Makes me wish we'd get a movie. Not that we ever will, unless Terry Gilliam gets the budget for it or something. But I can wish.

Apparently we are getting movie (or maybe), its been on the edge for a while, but I'm not sure it ever went into production. I remember seeing some concept art for it though and was not convinced. Like most adaptations though, it will probably suck.

What is Nueromancer?
Looking at both images, your old and new, I am immediately enveloped into this world you are creating.
If you're coming out with a story or comic or something, I want it.

I have to say though, I do like this one better. That is only because I have always liked the gritty feel of cities, especially futuristic ones. You pull it off here quite nicely! (:

"What is Neuromancer?" 

The book that inspired "The Matrix," "Ghost in the Shell," and a dozen other sci-fi stories! But not "Blade Runner:" that movie came out two years before "Neuromancer," and their settings were super similar just by a freaky coincidence. 

Anyway, you need to read "Neuromancer," because, among other things, it has THIS badass:

Its a book written by William Gibson in the early 80's, its still a VERY good read though. Its basically the first major Cyberpunk piece of media along with Blade Runner (they were made at the same time, simultaneously).
Definitely, definitely worth reading. You can see the inspiration that goes into a lot of following cyber punk fiction.

A fantastically great, but incredibly strange novel. It was essentially the first sci-fi novel to predict the internet, which it did way back in 1984. It's also the first "cyberpunk" novel, among other things. It's also incredibly bizarre to read, it's actually hard to understand no matter how fluent in English you are.

Yeh your right, it takes some reading, but its definitely worth it. Its very indepth, but super satisfying when things pull together in your head. Feels quite appropriate for the cyberpunk feel of it all IMO.
