Hi there!

Yet another "against-the-light" matte painting.
I want to show off a post apocalyptic destroyed cityscape, maybe after a war.

It's done with Photoshop CS and After Effects.
I kept the buildings in several layers and added fog in between.

Finally I rendered a camera pullback in After Effects with a previous version of the matte.
Please use "save target as ...", since I haven't optimised the clips for streaming:

PC - WMV-File, WM Version 8 Codec (3.4 MB): [link]
MAC - Quicktime, Sorenson Codec (9.8 MB): [link]

For those who are interested in having a look at the initial sketch: [link]

Thanks hoon, for helping me out with the final color correction ;)

Cheers, Daniel
