I had the extreme privilege to visit a refinery a couple of months ago and with the exceptional authorisation of the Refinery of Grandpuits in France I had this plate, and couldn't resist turning it into a sci-fi matte painting.
I assure you, the visit was just awesome, I know I know a refinery is not the glamourous place ever but it is just another world. You feel like being in a gloomy scene from Blade Runner movie, with steam, pipes everywhere, noise, and oil smells. I went around 35m up the ground just exactly where the two aliens are. Kind of creepy he he...!
Hope you will like it, this is mostly 2D for I pushed further my painting skills. Basically only the main spaceships have been modelled in Zbrush but postworked quite a lot.
Cheers for your favs and comments! Textures and stocks are mine.
This is a matte painting from a traditional beach sight with a cool sun down I shot last summer and an obvious central focal point with quite symmetrical lines, which I really liked to turn it into something sci-fi but keeping the actual boats to make them comtemporary compared to the futuristic buildings. No spaceship this time, I really focused on the buildings.
It is quite Dylan cole inspired even if I dont have his talent but I learnt a lot from him and his 2D techniques for matte. Very few 3D here, just the arches for basic shapes. All the rest is painting.
Original plate is my own stock and textures as well or bought on Asile FX which I recommand a lot: [link]

This is an image done for my little personal Sherlock Holmes project that I'm developing in my free time. I've been working on this thing under Jason Scheier's supervision as part of his online master classes. You can find more stuff on by blog [link]
