Environment: Post Apocalypse, Daniel Kvasznicza (2D)

Title: Environment: Post Apocalypse
Name: Daniel Kvasznicza
Country: Austria
Software: After Effects, Photoshop

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): http://www.inetgrafx.at/DS720.wmv
MAC - Quicktime, Sorenson Codec (9.8 MB): http://www.inetgrafx.at/DS720.mov

For those who are interested in having a look at the initial sketch: http://www.inetgrafx.at/SKETCH-POST-APOCALYPSE-V03.jpg

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

Cheers, Daniel

Amazing! is it all painted or is there some texture overlays or maybe photo collaging? 5 stars for me.

High quality work! I love the light degradations and the buildings and the sky, but usually a post apocalyptic destroyed city lacks electricity water resources etc. ... it's all destroyed. My oppinion is that those electric lights come against the ideea of a war ruined city. Although, those bulbs could give the idea of an existing hope of reborning. But i think it would look more frightening without them and it would also mean that it was a heavy war. Excelent job mate, 5 stars.
