In the year 2027, a majority of a fictional unnamed western city has become more futuristic with more advanced and more eco-friendly technology and architecture to boost convenience and efficiency. However due to some economic problems, some parts of this city still remain as it was in the previous generation (in this case, circa 2000 on the basis of this submission's time setting). Among the few residents that still live in these polluted parts, 23-year-old Scott "Sarge" Dominski, an agile basketball player and aspiring battle rapper with a knack for graffiti art, overcomes all the struggles and ordeals of living in a futuristic city without its innovative benefits or civilized society.
I listened to a lot of my favorite rap songs to maintain my influence while working on this. It took longer than it was supposed to because mid-way some work obligation suddenly appeared, forcing me to delay this longer than I was supposed to. The "Room for Rent" notice on the telephone pole was a pain to do due to lack of the appropriate distortion function I needed on APSE8. Turned out GIMP had that function, if only I knew that before. Also I'll be honest, I used free graffiti vectors for the graffiti because making my own isn't really my thing.
Edit: Changed lighting from daytime to sunset. Hopefully you'll get that 'old-school' feeling better this way.
Edit 2: Oh my god, how could I have forgotten about the doorknob for the door to the Chinese restaurant...
