Concept - Old Backstreet

Hello all, :)

A scene concept for an arid area - the geographical position and altitude required some pretty strong sunlight and contrast, it was tricky to balance all that with a well rounded images showing the claustrophobic back streets – the light had to stream into the alleys very strongly.

Original res 3200 high
Painted in PS CS3
Wacom Intous 3 tablet
About 8-10 hours painting time (can't be sure)

I hope you all like it. :)

Oh wow! This is the kind of stuff I like. Besides urban decay, streets and alleyways very similar to these are always so... inspiring to me for some reason. I applaude the amount of work you put into this to make this picture! *thumbs up*
