This is an unfinished 3D environment. The scene was made in fall of 2008. This is a render test to check the progress.
Another view of this environment can be seen in "View Looking West" [link]
The image depicts a fairly typical "post apocalyptic" setting. The architecture is contemporary. I wanted to test various techniques for making a ruined urban environment, with various kinds of debris - metal, concrete, asphalt...
The scene was modeled and rendered in Lightwave 3D. The sky is an image from CG Textures [link]
that I modified and mapped onto a sphere. The rest of the 3D elements of the scene were created entirely from scratch, and some generic textures grunge textures were painted in Photoshop.
The figure is a 2D painted silhouette - just to give scale.
The scene is incomplete - it's missing cars and other items one would find strewn about at ground level. I hope to finish this one day - but for the time being this is where it came to rest.
