Postapocalyptic matte-painting of abandoned city, where something going to happen. I've started with basic sketch and mood of dark night scene with strong light source. Originally 5,5kx4,1k res but I cropped it for better composition, also originally I added a band photography in foreground which is reason for quite an "empty" foreground. Made from a lot of photo elements with lot of painting, retouch, day to night and postproduction techniques.
