original version?

met⋅a⋅mor⋅ pho⋅sis
/ˌmɛtəˈmɔrfəsɪs/
1. Biology. a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly. Compare complete metamorphosis.
2. a complete change of form, structure, or substance, as transformation by magic or witchcraft.
3. any complete change in appearance, character, circumstances, etc.

uhh... "metamorphosis" of a city >__> (i'm stretching it a little, aren't i?)
the assignment was to make a piece about metamorphosis. annnd since i have a 25% presentation in another class due the same day and felt like colouring this drawing instead, i just... did it. so there.

ball point pen and textures/colours in photoshop
aaahhhhhhhhhhh there are so many things i'm not happy with about this piece -_-

i've been hearing quite a bit about it

I think most people forget that dictionary definitions are compiled by other human beings that seek to encompass the most common and broad usages of words in a given society and era. (i.e. there is no such thing as the sole and pure dictionary definition of a word.) So is it stretching it to apply the word "metamorphosis" to a city? Not at all.

original version is love.
i like the unfiltered more for the colours.. but the original has a great atmosphere and really shows the line art, and i LOVE the sketch in this.

i heard nycc was epic.. i saw the game features and it just looked fantastic.
