The Slums Of Wu Jian by FranklinChan The Slums Of Wu Jian by FranklinChan

An ancient city of slums that has been build and rebuilt over centuries. The houses stacked together so high that you can no longer see the sky, day and night feels the same. The illustration depicts the character, Sabriye that was born and raised here, return to this place once again to seach for her long lost sister.

This is an illustration done for the new Exalted 3rd roleplaying book funded by Kickstarter campaign. Art director Maria Cabardo.

The Slums Of Wu Jian by FranklinChan communicates a claustrophobic and oppressive atmosphere through its fantastic composition, scale, and lighting.   ( Featured by lovelessdevotions )

I just copy here my commis I posted on facebook.

I exactly don't know why, but that picture reminds me of my room full of books. And sometimes  the mood of my room corresponds to of the expression of this image. Fortunately it doesn't happen often that way.

imo, it's an very impressive image.

This is one of my favorite pieces and does an excellent job of opening a different view on what a cityscape in creation can truly look like. Compared to alot of visions of how things might look the ramshackle towering height slums are a interesting change of pace, and really set the book on a good start.

Imagine an entire cliffside, yes, the whole thing covered in metal and wooden crudely made shacks. If there was such a thing... THIS WOULD BE IT.
Very Well Done!!!

Yeah, right? The first Guild Wars games (not GW2) was like the last online game I played with a group of friends entirely. Henchmen and everything. Wonderful times. Pulling small groups and constantly dying, but going forward with -25%. Farming legendary skills and items. Oh, man...

Dud you get the idea from Kowloon Walled City, China? Because if you did, it looks so alike. But if you didn't, it looks so much like it!
