View Full Version : Volcano city concept

11 November 2006, 03:09 PM
Hi, I was doing a concept for a city that is built around a volcano.

The original concept, extrapolated from a photo:

I kinda like it so I decided to turn it into a matte painting.

Before so, I would love to hear any comments and critisms from you guys on the perspective, color, composition.

Hi Moysh this skecth and concept is really really cool I like a lot the colors and the sens of scale your showing here. for composition I would add some clouds beacuse we're really high in the sky to see this city , the colors in the original sketch are better to me , they show the inmense scale of this thing , well this is just my opinion , I'm definitly looking forward to see the final matte painting
welcome and keep up the good work !

i do agree with jamesvfx
the original concept looks much more impressive to me as the newer one. i really like that idea and im looking forward to see this.

(you can add a small river of lava, running down the black squares in the walls.)
