After about 3 hours messing around with photopea and bouncing the picture from my computer to my phone.
Here is my VaporWave image I created
Now I am not going to lie this was really difficult to make but I loved every second of the process. I think the hardest part was knowing when it was complete and feeling satisfied with the results.
You see when I started thinking about what I wanted my image to look like I realized that the Vaporwave and the Cyberpunk theme are really similar. So I thought why don’t I combine the two?
This is a CyberPunk Theme image. In other word think of BladeRunner.
This is a Vapor Wave image.
The similarities are striking. They’re pretty easy too confused because cyberpunk did develop in the 80s with all the futuristic movies and all.
The best way I can distinguish them is Vapor wave does more of a mash up of thing culturally relevant to the 80s and 90s and Cyberpunk is more of a dystopian depiction of what the future is going look like.
However, both use the same color schemes and the images produced are a social commentary of consumerism. How things are portray to the bright and cool but there is always a darker mean behind it.
It’s two sides of the same coin if you ask me. Either ways it’s cool and they are fun to make. I can honestly say that I am hooked to this theme and iI’m looking forwards to making more of these in the future.
