It's very quick just 4 hours sketch. First goal was to create mattepainting over photograph without changing original colors and lighting conditions, I did few minor corrections to achieve feature film look. Second goal was to practice my brush strokes, play with color values and saturations, idea for the abandon city was born during painting.
I took this picture from the train window when I was going though the "Whirlpool Bridge" over Niagara river. High-res image: http://features-temp.cgsociety.org/g...8183_large.jpg
