Hi everyone!

Well, I'm back into my tenderly loved "fallout" genre ;) A few words about the painting. Did this for personal satisfaction and fun for about two weeks. The initial very rough sketch on paper was done while I was on the plane returning to my home country from New York city. So it was definitely NYC that inspired the initial sketch and composition. Due to my daytime freelance work I was able to work on this piece only at nights which regularly brought tonns of slippers thrown onto my poor head by my wife ;) Another great thing that inspired me and kept me in the right "mode" are two iconic songs - legendary song by Ink Spots - "I don't want to set the world on fire" (1941) and Lois Armstrong's "Hello Dolly" (1965). I didn't use any photo references or photo footage but did use 3D throughout the composition. The biggest 3D element in the scene is the foreground "RENO" signboard (fully overpainted though).

In the "fallout" universe, New Reno setting is definitely one of the most impressive and dramatic places that the central character encounters on his quest. So I thought it would be fun to kind of improvise a little on the idea and concept of post-apoc New Reno and try to make a little "research" on the way it could look in real life. Hope you'll like it ;)

Incredible! I love the details as well as the atmosphere!

It would be greater if there's some dramatic scene on it. I imagine there's some slum boys or anything.

Keep up the good work!
