I have done this matte painting a long time ago for a TV commercial to the audience of 750,000.

(There is no use of 3D,It is 100% done in photoshop).

First of all, I would like to say that this is very well done. I mean this was done completely from scratch, not a single hint of photomanipulation. I really like the technique used for this drawing, this looks very realistic. I really like how the Space Needle looks, and the details are just downright awesome. I really like how the bridge was done, truly amazing. Lastly the shading and the lighting is fantastic. This artist really put a lot of effort into this and truly deserves the faves it received. All in all, this is definitely worth faving. XD

No, I can't do any graphical art at all, I'm a writer.

It is from an old SNES game.

The artistic merit is obvious and the level of detail fantastic. My only objection is one of a technical nature, as my gut instinct tells me that if the Space Needle were to bend in the manner portrayed, it would be beyond its center of gravity. Thus, the picture must be a snapshot of the structure in the instant of complete collapse.

Maybe you've done further research and determined this not to be true, but without knowing the physics behind it, the aberrant stillness of what my mind tells me should be a body in motion does tend to capture my eye and detract from the rest of this otherwise incredible scene.
