The Decline of Babel Myth is a personnal matte painting that I did during Christmas holiday. I took some photos with my digital camera on top of the empire state building in New York City last summer while I was at SIGGRAPH 2006 Boston, there is only 4-5 hours of driving between.

The concept of this artwork was inspired by the famous movie Blade Runner (starring Harrison Ford) in which, you can see amazing futuristic cityscapes, which are define today as one of the most classic matte painting images from the old times. I always was fascinated by these old school matte painting techniques. These amazing artists was working on huge glass canvas with nothing else than pencils, brushes and oil painting. What a different world!

The modeling of the ships was done by a friend of mine: [link]
