Something I've always wanted to do. A matte painting depicting my fascination of abandoned post-apocalyptic cities of the distant future where plant life has overwhelmed our once great monolithic structures.

This is actually unfinished since my computer literally stopped being able to handle the file.. the last few things I had to do in a clean document and bring them over and put them in. :P

well done!

can you imagine if humans returned to see this?  I would like to imagine they would want to recreate it future villages.

I'm putting together a slideshow for a couple of quotes i like about nature taking its territory back from civilization. I'd love to use this in it. Let me know. :)

I'll tell you how not to do it: on a 5 year old computer with 2GB of RAM. Was awfully painful. :P
