Claw - After the smoke clears

Hello again,
Following on from my 2012 matte where huge cracks had ripped across the surface of the planet , it is now maybe 10-20 years
later and the earth has become stable again. however what is left of the city is now perched on the edge of a number of uneven cliffs.
nature has started to consume destroyed buildings and roads but a small number of humans have survived and are now starting to rebuild.

My matte this time will be of a survivors fortress built out of the remains of a once grant city. their new wooden building
built around the old glass and steel skyscrapers. This is the first concept:

I like the idea. You could also add some sign of life, e.g. smoke out of the wooden building's chimney or something.

Good idea and good realisation (in sketch)! Your work in this case will made in classic matte scheme, with nearest stuff, middle and background. So, it can be easily composing and integrated in movie. So, its proffesional approach, I think.

I think, you need to stretch this picture and make a panoramic view )

good idea but its not something i'm very good at so probably not. need more practice with that style.

will defiantly add that type of life, maybe even a windmill or water wheel.

just a small work in progress. don't look like much but it took about 2.5hours to do! Thanks

Not bad Claw.

Cheers!

don't know why but I'm not really liking it so far. going to keep at it for a bit to see if i can wrestle something out of it.

Hey raulfabi, I don't know what i'm going to do with the bridge yet.

Thanks for the comments.

according to my perspective view, your traffic light is as high as half the height of the building at the center of your scene... i think you need to fix the perspective...
