I know about the finished project, but it just occurred to me......
With Florida's Postal Service asking people to stop crashing into their offices and lobbies (it's actually in the news) I think I would be horrified every second I was on one of those 'air trollies' you got there knowing seniors are 'out there'.
Yeah, I saw that one. The Kool-Aid guy probably shouldn't be driving, even in Florida.
The thing about Titan City is, it's not really what it seems. Themed entertainment is so integral to basic design of the city that there's lots of things that seem dramatic, or even dangerous, but are just show.
There's a little of that in there, but mostly that one there on the right is inspired by some of the European delivery vans from the 40s. I don't remember exactly which vehicle I took the front grill from.

When i pitch my idea for movie to someone big, i'll make sure to have you as the lead mecha art director/designer. The designs are so detailed, fluent, and amazing! Someone like you would make amazing concept art for a movie series!
This kicks all kinds of ass man I love how you and I have been pursuing similar visual design cues and interests and how we both arrive in our own distinct conclusions with these things in mind. Mike, you are seriously rocking the retro deco vibes, take that from another Mike who digs the deco as well
I think that reaction comes from a lack of confidence and a naive conception of originality, really. There are so many interesting things out there that feed into each other- some influences are obvious, and some are not. Personally, I can't abide either pretention or ignorance so I try not to encourage it.
hm nice couloring, but... your cablebus seems a litle bit dangerous because by this length there is only this small contact to the cable... seems that its getting problems by winds^^ and, when their a lot of cablecars / busses in this city it would be very tricky to fly there with this aerocars, because of the many cables.... but this are only my thoughts^^
Good thinking, but the cablecars actually have systems to counteract the oscillation caused by the wind. Those tubes beneath the cablecar are filled with a magnetoferric fluid that is induced by an electric field to slosh back in forth in such a way as to counteract the rocking of the vehicle.
Collisions could be a problem, but the ability to lay the grid out in three dimensions makes it possible to increase the distance between vehicles and get more of a safety buffer.
Crazy! You've taken Blade Runner's art deco/nouveau motifs and amplified them by an order of magnitude. I love that hazy atmospheric perspective, it provides both emotional resonance and a sense of depth to the environment.
