Environment: POST-APOCALYPSE by inetgrafx Environment: POST-APOCALYPSE by inetgrafx
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

A well done post-apoc piece always makes me happy. Do you think that's a sign of something being seriously wrong with me?

Nice work! I really like that some of the buildings still has some electricity. It makes is more realistic if you ask me. ;) The lights in the closest buildings makes the atmosphere seem a little cosy. Like some people still haven't lost hope.

Really inspirational work, I love it.
