London in Ruin by IndigoFlamingo London in Ruin by IndigoFlamingo
This is my first Matte Painting...and I love it!
This is my second and most pain staking painting. This is my matte painting of London being attacked by UFOs. That's basically it! Let your mind explore as you listen to your favorite epicon music and let his movie run through your head.

Scary huh?~

Hey....I should do something like this for other major cities in the world...that...would be FUN! Moscow...YOU'RE NEXT!! <3

Some Argentinian Rifleman: This is London? I thought we've destroyed this city months ago...

I had no idea! XD This was actually an alien invasion piece. The little lights in the skies are the ships coming in at light speed. Thank you so much for enjoying!

Truly great piece. Could I please have your permission to use this piece for the backdrop of a quote? I would obviously credit you as the artist.

As long as I get to see your piece when it is completed, I have no problem with it. I scoped out your page, its a must for me, but I think you are an honest person. You have an honest look about you, and lookedd up your other pieces with quotes and they are refreshing.

YES!! That is what I was aiming for at the time I made this!! This was one of the most difficult pieces I have ever worked on. Matte painting in not that easy.

Absolutely love the amount of detail in there. At first I thought this was a photoshop collage! So I think that says you nailed your detail work.

XD Matte paintings are technically hugely manipulated photographs edited to look like something is real. At least that is how what my professor in class explained it. The less I actually "draw" on it the better~
That doesn't take away the fact I had to take a day time photo of London with the riverside and turn that into his massive cluster of chaos.

I WISH I can paint that realistically. T_T I'm too abstract.

is this fan art from the ground in the view of london during the reaper attack?

No it isn't actually. XD; This is a UFO attack on London, if it makes you think of Mass Effect, then by all means enjoy! XD I didn't really look up anything from Mass Effect 3, and what I know about the games is very little. Mainly the game trailers inspired me.

If it is, what do you think of the image?

i think the painting is really good and if you havent play the mass effect games they are not only good it might give you inspiration for more great artwork.

It could be during a zombie out break and a bomb went off to try to contain it

Maybe, I can see that in some aspects. But I would have burning corpses in the image as well.

Yeah, this is an actually assignment that I turned in. I'm not in art school actually, I'm just in a regular college in a small town. I'm just trying to bust my ass to get noticed when I apply for jobs in the art field.
