I used a reference for tones. I have a tendency to make everything over saturated and cartoonie. so I fetched some image of a subway station. some fashy one, and blured it to pick my pallet. but not the arquitecture.

well, I kind of have to say that I like the banners hanging there. because I'll be adding alot of stuff. telefone boths, posters, publicity. some wet floor sighs maybe... so i'll have detail every where. I just putted them there for color balance.

so, thanks everyone for the comments. hope not to let you down.

Disagree about the purple, with all those greens it needs some colour, and once you detail the banners up it will look even better. Very interesting to see how you put this together, are you working from a photo for reference or making it up as you go along?

Gunstar has a point, the purples do make the pallete richer...but looking at it again, they look a bit to lonely, I think they need to be better integrated with the image...u should make them fade off to the greenish tones as they go towards the background, but you  should also bring other warm elements, that way the purple wont be as harsh, but you'll have more warm colors elsewhere to balance the pallete.

Thank you for posting all those progress shots. 

As a sort of beginning artist, it really helps me to see how someone as talented as yourself goes about doing such art.

Nice update. I think the banners look better like that, and the dithering is fabulous.

Simply amazing :).

I too could see it in a fighting game xD. Imagine seeing the reflection of your character on the ground as you moved, and how smooth it would look with a fighter-styled camera. Would be pretty sick xD.
