DCO MMO Suicide Slums by Chuckdee DCO MMO Suicide Slums by Chuckdee
This here is one of the earlier environments I did for DCU .... it was a really cool learning experience because I wasn't too used to thinking so much about the character of a 'neighborhood' when I would draw a background in a comic book page, specially with tight deadlines always breathing down your neck.

What doing a TON of environments for DC's MMO allowed me to do was to really explore the reasons why a neighborhood looks the way it does... why is it dilapidated, or up-kept, the size of the buildings, the exterior decoration etc etc.

In this case, this is Suicide Slums, one of the ghettos in Metropolis, and right away, I thought of the housing that is usually stuck right below a freeway. Places that at some point were very pretty, but with time they've become tragic-versions of what they used to be.

The name of this area sound like a downer but the area looks awesome and I would agree areas like this would be in below a freeway.
