This was a piece I created for Istockphoto as royalty free stock image: www.istockphoto.com/photo/futu…
The image itself is a simple destroyed, post apocalypse, city background. I wanted to create a very generic piece that could allow for many different possibilities. As this is a piece for istockphoto, I also had to be conscious of creating a composition that would work with copy space in editorial content. I used a combination of Photography, 3d and paint over to create the image.
I started this concept with basic 3d geometry of the structure. I then proceeded to lay in textures, and finally the astronaut and cord. I’m not quite sure what the structure is; perhaps a space elevator?
Artwork time, was around 3 hours. Images sourced from Nasa. 3d - Max/Vray
