Helsinki from Tervasaari bridge, Anssi Ahola (2D)


#1

Title: Helsinki from Tervasaari bridge
Name: Anssi Ahola
Country: Finland
Software: Photoshop

This is a proof-of-concept piece done in 8 hours. It started from the idea to use Google street view images as plates for matte painting.

As well as proof-of-concept, this is my first ever day-to-night conversion. I was really surprised about how much fun I had making this.

This piece is just a crop of the full width version. You can see the super-wide version here:

…And a winter - edition:

Since I’m not doing matte work for living but as a hobby only, I need to find time to continue with my efforts. But I can’t wait to do more of the sort.

Comments much appreciated!

The night version of the work is fascinating, but the lack of illumination hides a lot of detail.

The winter version shows all the detail and is indeed very nice.
