The Last Blue Zone by frankhong The Last Blue Zone by frankhong
"The Last Blue Zone"
Photoshop CS3
Matte Painting
10 hours

resurgere stock image used
1 cloud scape shot (sky6_0259)
1 snow land (nature14_6239)

Other images of Toronto cityscape photography by myself (Frank Hong)

one of the first matte paintings in my gallery. started with combining images selectively to create the basic setting and light direction, and sketched in the cityscape before the actual detailed painting. the theme of the image is based on one all time classic pc game, "Command and Conquer" and it's famous Tiberium crystals.

hope you like this one, please leave comments and critiques.

"As the Tiberium closes in on the final blue zone, GDI prepares it's final stand against the alien crystal"

Very well made, I quite like the effects brought in here. Although for more effect you could have added in one of the creatures from the Tiberium Sun series. Say... the Viseroid (spelled wrong) or the Floater

It's such a surreal scene, and the green from the crystals add a gloominess to the whole image... awesome work

Excuse me if you have gotten this twice. ^^;
