Futuristic city 2 by JoakimOlofsson Futuristic city 2 by JoakimOlofsson
Had fun drawing this one!

I don't do comissions anymore, sorry. But feel free to use all the paintings in my gallery as you like, except the "A Bird Story" painting. You don't have to ask me for permission and I don't have the paintings in my gallery in any higher resolution, sorry.
PS. I'm kinda busy nowadays so I probably won't write you back if you post a comment or send me a note.

Oh, I wish that art like this could appear in the new iteration of Star Trek. Maybe then it'd be possible for fewer planets to look the same. But then, I don't know how JoakimOlofsson here would feel about his works being used in a TV show. Hm. 

Just a thought.

The park in the forground is reminding me of Cloudgate (The Bean) in Millennium Park, Chicago.

Amazing work. There is quite a bit of futuristic/technotopian city artwork out there, but very little that has people in it. Great work!+fav Heart 

I have included this artwork in SHIFT magazine, a non-for-profit, add free change makers mag. Credits given and links included.

makes me wonder what the gritty underground is like.  Where the drugs are dealt and the people are murdered.

Wow that water fall

Hey. This is really awesome! Could I get a high res file? How much would you charge if I used it in an ad?
FineArtze Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014
Thank you. I have always loved drawings of the future. I will use them in my FB posts, but out of respect for your hard work I will always reference this webpage.

Wow! The garden, the reservoirs...very futuristic indeed!  Exactly what you'd expect from a futuristic utopia.

A city that wastes much, wastes its identity.
Lady-Lisette Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow! This is amazing! I love this idea of a futuristic city! Great job!
BernardtheBeast Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, stunning work--such great's these kind of conceptualized/painting like drawings that I eventually want to move into doing one day, but just haven't taken the time to really learn the style...anyway, really incredible stuff!
JoakimOlofsson Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
Thanks! I recommend the Feng Zhu tutorials I have linked on my profile page if you want to learn how to draw in a "concept art" style.
BernardtheBeast Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sweet! Spent about an hour watching and following along. Just watching someone work and talk about it really helps--well, helps make 'mental connections' at least. Helps to understand the process. Cheers for that though, definitely looking forward to spending a weekend working on this, and those videos are a great resource!

And, yeah, that foggy mist at the bottom...ATMOSPHERE!!! Love it.

Great Work .. :D ..

Very nice work on this! Its not the typical half-assed futuristic city consisting of impossibly pointy towers connected by hundreds of useless bridges. I hope the future is like this :)
