I've been going through my references and photos and I found this nice shot of the New York with Liberty statue. Immediately pop up in my head to do it in Soviet style with Lenin and other Soviet things. I did one before and couple of other cities, I know, but its just a fun to do something controversial.

Hi Gerardo,
not your strongest work but nice.
It reminds me of lenin statue from red alert game:

I think that composition could be better. Also part around edge of city...it is a bit hard to tell what is going on there. Last coment is about statue which is having different lighting than rest of scene.

the biggest issue with this is that you go straight to the statue and the thing that destroys the illusion is that his luminosity is a bit to high and it sort of is missing the harsh shadows the base he stands on has. He has got some highligts on his shoulder that dont match the overall lighting too.

and on a sidenote, i love your work!


wiie

Oh my god guys! I haven't seen the reply's from you! :)
Temujin - yes you're right, I was going here only as a test for Nuke projection and mostly for fun :)
The idea of it was already in my head for several years after watching Cold war conspiracy theory :)
Thanks man for comment and crit.
emptyslot - yeah, if I look back on it, I should have it finished on at least 80% and post it :) right.

and here are some fun cityscape matte paintings I did recently. I went home for 3.weeks and that was good chance for some amazing photos. So I've decided to do some matte paintings of them, just for practice and fun.
...

and

thank you.

I've got this idea to do some underwater scene, while I was diving in Thailand, so London's Big Ben it is.. a lot of fun to create that one. Maybe I will go for more cities later on..full size is over 4k.
