This project was originally created as an entry for the CG Society Kreola After Earth digital matte painting contest. I started a week before the final was due and ended up missing the deadline. I decided to finish the piece for my portfolio as it was already 80% done by the time the deadline had passed. The contest provided a base photo and a brief description to follow. The description reminded me of the time I spent in Venice Italy in 2006. I drew lots of inspiration from Venice’s beautiful architecture, its maze like master plan and its pedestrian activity.
