Utopia Concepts 1-2 by samburley Utopia Concepts 1-2 by samburley
Did a few quick concepts for my next 3D animation project. Essentially it's a small future city powered by wind and solar energy that uses high speed rails for cheap transit. The buildings are very 'green architecture' inspired, and are designed to look harmonious with nature.

so i left a comment on your other concepts and I love this one as well, especially the bullet trains. I do have a conceptual question though, why is there so much room on the bridge in between the two? I'm just curious there isnt a hidden meaning in my question it for "foot" traffic or like cars/hovercrafts or what not?

If so I wish I could see some people or vehicles on it to see how u picture them. Just to see your style portrayed through their costumes/vehicles would be awesome.

Haha, it's funny you ask about that, because I honestly wasn't sure what to do with that portion of the bridge. At first it was going to be a road for vehicles, but that sort of went against the idea of transit efficiency, so I began to turn it into solar panels. But even still I couldn't quite decide and kind of just left it.... I guess that was a little too apparent huh?

Again I appreciate your criticism and hope to hear from you more :)

hahaha....ya I was wondering lol....and I'm glad you decided against the vehicles because of the efficiency issue.

And if there are people itd make you wonder y would they walk it. The only other thing I could recommend would be some sort of "kiosks" down the middle and make it like a place people might walk through too for that reason. But that could in the end ruin the "expressway" feel it has now. Either way it's just a concept and brainstorming is all part of it, doesn't have to be a final thing just an idea.

I will say the one thing I noticed not right off but after I wrote my comment is the end of the "tunnel" into the wall....I love it!! It looks great and I think it has a lot of feeling in it. And to be honest I wish the bullet trains had a little more of that feeling cuz they have a little bit of a generic feeling. But...Amazing work dude and I hope I can get that good and do it as fast as you can
