Neuromancer - CGHub Illustrated contest - WIP by sourgasm Neuromancer - CGHub Illustrated contest - WIP by sourgasm
Work in progress.

My entry for the CGHub Illustrated challenge, Neuromancer. I've read the book once a year for roughly a decade now, so I figured it was time to do a proper illustration based on it. Took a little walk down Ninsei Street in Chiba City ;]

Did you do more than one version of this image?

One of the best illustrations of Case I've seen, and damn good take on Molly too. Fantastic work all around!

Rare to find someone who can do both landscapes and people really well. I love the expressions on their faces - and now I think I'm going to read that novel, especially since Shanghai and Tokyo are only a step away from cyberpunk these days.

Thanks! You should definitely read the novel. It's dark, prophetic, kinky, funny, strange and amazing. Totally flipped my world on it's head when I first read it. Plus, it has such a great opening line:

"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."

Oh, also, you commented on the ancient version of the image. There's a newer version here:

Hello Sourgasm, I am currently doing doctoral research in urban studies on the representation and image of the cyberpunk city. Can you tell more broadly about your creative process? How do you work and how to re-imagine the space of the city from Gibson novel? Any data is important to me and I will give due credit. Also I would love to show your work in my research if I have your permission. Your work seems important to be researched, discussed and disseminated. Sincerely, M. Mr. Jorge Octavio Ocaranza (my email: yolcos@hotmail.com)

Hola, actualmente estoy haciendo una investigación doctoral de estudios urbanos, sobre representación e imagen de la ciudad cyberpunk. ¿Podrías contarme más ampliamente acerca de tu proceso creativo? ¿cómo trabajas y como re-imaginas el espacio de la ciudad a partir de la novela de Gibson? ¿qué técnicas de dibujo convencionales e innovadoras utilizas? Cualquier dato es para mí importante y daré los créditos debidos. También me gustaría mucho poder mostrar tu trabajo en mi investigación si tengo tu autorización. Tu trabajo me parece importante de ser investigado, comentado y difundido. Cordialmente, M. Arq. Jorge Octavio Ocaranza (mi correo: yolcos@hotmail.com)

You are a god. Like, Norse God god. If you know what I mean.
Um, something like 1280x800? :3

AWESOME job. Case and Molly are great; not exactly how *I* pictured them, but these looks really fit the characters. And the background is also fantastic. I've tried drawing pictures of Gibson's Sprawl, and I just suck at pulling it off. You, however, pulled it off. Great work!

Thanks!

I'm not sure if that's quite how I pictured Case and Molly either. I'll get 'em next time :P

I've had that problem with the Finn--no matter how many times I drew him, I couldn't get him how I pictured, until recently.
