Magenta City was a personal project I created in Photoshop. I had been inspired by the cyberpunk background art of Batman Beyond and the photography of artists such as Kosten at the time, so I was eager to create something.
The process to make this piece was a lengthy one, as I went through many iterations of city scenes and compositions before I decided on the final skyline. The tiny glittering lights were created using a variety of textured halftone brushes.
Spending so much time on one painting can become tedious, but it was well worth it given how many new techniques I discovered and improved.
