As an artist, I have always been fascinated by the concept of the future and how technology will shape our world. So when I came across the Cyberpunk Steam video game, I was immediately drawn to its depiction of a futuristic city.
The game’s cyberpunk aesthetic, emphasizing advanced artificial intelligence and the fusion of technology and humanity, resonated with me.
For my recent art project, I set out to create a series of portraits of a cyberpunk theme in a futuristic city. The project was inspired by the game developer CD Projekt Red’s ambitious computer game ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘, set in the fictional Night City.
To capture this world visually, I used bright colors and dramatic lighting to create bold and energetic pieces that accurately depicted the genre’s artistry.
Each portrait featured an individual character posed against an urban landscape backdrop with vibrant neon lights shining in the night sky. By combining my digital painting skills with modern technology, I created these captivating images that generated a lot of buzz for my work.
Capturing the essence of the genre
As I played the computer game, I began to imagine what it would be like to create a series of portraits in this same world. I knew I wanted to capture the essence of the cyberpunk genre – the neon-lit night city streets, the sense of danger and rebellion, and the advanced technology.
I wanted to explore the theme of the relationship between humanity and technology and how it shapes the world in the future.
I began by sketching rough ideas for my portraits and experimenting with different poses, lighting, and composition.
As I worked on the series, I became increasingly inspired by the cyberpunk theme and how it depicted characters living in a futuristic city landscape. I wanted to incorporate elements of this aesthetic into my work, and I began experimenting with different color palettes and textures to create a sense of a futuristic theme.
Each one captures the energy, danger, and rebellion of the genre while also staying true to the cyberpunk theme aesthetic. These portraits reflect my love for this genre, my fascination with the future, and the relationship between humanity and technology.
I was particularly interested in exploring the role of AI in the cyberpunk world and how it shapes the lives of the characters in my portraits. I wanted to convey the sense of both wonder and fear that comes with integrating advanced technology into our daily lives.
Exploring the Gritty World of Cyberpunk: An Artist’s Journey Through Futuristic City Streets
As I began developing the portrait series, I knew I wanted to convey a sense of realism in my portraits. I tried to capture the gritty, neon-lit streets and the sense of rebellion and danger that pervades the cyberpunk genre.
To achieve this, I spent hours on the city’s streets, observing the people and the architecture, studying how light and shadow play across the surfaces of buildings and how people move through the future city.
I used various techniques to create the portraits, including traditional painting techniques, digital art, and even AI art.
I wanted to capture the sense of movement and energy in my paintings, and using a combination of different techniques allowed me to achieve this.
One of the most challenging aspects of creating the series was capturing the sense of advanced technology in the portraits. I wanted to convey the feeling that the characters in my portraits lived in a world where technology is integrated into every aspect of life.
This was best achieved through neon lighting and cyberpunk theme-inspired effects.

Creating this portrait series was a labor of love for me. It allowed me to explore my passion for cyberpunk and bring my unique vision to life. My portrait series will inspire others to explore the genre and create unique interpretations of the future.
In the future, AI is not just be something that can be used for convenience, but it has become an integral part of people’s lives. I wanted to show how AI could symbolize power and control but also vulnerability, as it reveals the characters’ secrets and innermost thoughts.
I also conveyed that in the future, people will adapt to technology and integrate it into their lives. I wanted to show that, although technology has advanced, people are still people with their thoughts, emotions, and desires.
I also made sure to include a diverse cast of characters in my portraits to reflect the diversity of the cyberpunk genre and the diversity of the city in which the portraits were set.
I wanted to show that the cyberpunk genre is not just about a homogenous group of people but encompasses a wide range of characters from different backgrounds and walks of life.
Overall, creating this series of portraits was an enriching experience. It allowed me to tap into my love of the cyberpunk genre and explore the themes and aesthetics central to it.

Exploring the Intersection of Technology and Humanity: An Artist’s Journey into the World of Cyberpunk Portraiture
Incorporating cyberpunk anime elements into my portraits helped to add an extra layer of depth and complexity to my work. For example, I used anime-inspired color schemes and exaggerated facial expressions to convey my characters’ emotions better.
I also incorporated anime-inspired futuristic cybernetic enhancements to better communicate the advanced technology in the cyberpunk world.
As I worked on the series, I also considered the idea of “cyberpunk artistry.” A gritty, neon-lit cityscape and a sense of rebellion and danger characterize this aesthetic. I captured this aesthetic in my portraits by focusing on the neon lighting and the city’s sense of movement and energy.
Finally, I wanted to ensure that my portraits were grounded in reality. I didn’t want to create a fantasy world completely detached from reality but a believable future that extends our world.
I extensively researched current technology trends and the city where the portraits were set to achieve this. I also consulted with urban planning and technology experts to ensure that my portraits were as accurate as possible.
