This is a personal fun project which I have done to get some practice in matte painting techniques. Most in the artwork is painted with standard Photoshop brushes.

I really enjoyed painting the girl and the highlights in the cityscape. I noticed also that the background looks much more matte painting like without the cyborg, but I think I will leave her in the picture....there are enough devastated cityscape matte paintings out there. ;-)

It was my intention to have a sharp contrast between the devastated landscape and the beauty of the android. I think a painting with that kind of motive can be poignant but the same romantic, if this is the right description for an aftermath.

I didn't have any specific story in mind, so I leave it to the imagination of the viewer. Original size 2800x1900, done with Photoshop CS and Wacom Intuos 3.
