Here’s a side project i was working on based off a real world location in downtown Manhattan, this was a re-imagining of the storefront bodega, back then when i was younger there would be a local bodega store that i would pick up snacks from so ive decided to create something that pays tribute to the mom and pop stores!

wow! truly stunning cornerstore you have here! the amount of detail on the walls, rooves, and elsewhere is an effort that should not go unnoticed by casual viewers. the practical lighting on the ceilings seems to make the colors a bit bland, but otherwise this is an excellent piece of art!

Oh whoa- I keep looking at this one. All the details are so good! This one’s a lot of fun to look at high res.

Wow this is amazing but something seems wrong to me about the taxi. well, there’s nothing wrong with the taxi in and of itself but something about it looks more stylized or cartoon-ish whereas everything else looks very convincingly photorealistic. So its more an issue of a stylistic clash than the taxi looking bad. Overall this is fantastic though, keep it up.

Exceptional detail and atmosphere. Is that taxi chopped or just got a busted suspension?

thanks! i had a hard time getting the colors right on the taxi, back in nyc the taxis would be painted with a bright construction yellow that i tried my best to match to, any brighter/darker would make it look waaay more off then the current settings! :grinning:
