SHIB: The Metaverse is set to become the culmination of Shiba Inu’s history as a community, virtually displayed, in a layer of beautiful visuals that showcase innovation and unity with a place for the #ShibArmy crypto community to truly call home. We’ve partnered with the top visualization studio in the world THE THIRD FLOOR (TTF) to push the boundaries of immersive environments and provide direction in regards to how SHIB should be represented by listening to our community and broadcasting feedback directly to the studio experts.
Concept artwork brings the best of a visual representation process, in which an environment is expressed or conveys a certain look. Commonly used in film and video games to present a set vision and feeling that inspires a deep connection with the atmosphere. Concept art provides the strongest reference points aligning the creative outlook and aspect on the project or in this case, the HUB being introduced.
Picture yourself staring at mounds of sand shaped by winds, while feeling a sensation of heat, while smooth sand particles travel at a near distance welcoming other sand mounds, perhaps with a sense of sheltered areas behind an obstacle. Upon gazing beyond you discover an oasis of sorts, yet this oasis is like no other, it's massive, it's shaped, and welcomes an adventurous and modern place, full of glitzy architecture and cooling waters.
The following are early sketches, in black and white, that communicate suggestions and feedback to express granularly how this HUB will play a role in SHIB The Metaverse. Black and white sketches and concept artwork include a strong, physical, powerful potential, especially in abstract artwork.

◾Great Sand Dune National Park (Colorado, United States)
