This is a personnal matte painting I have been working on for a while now. It started of as an idea I had while walking home after seeing the movie "28 days later" at friends house. I started to wonder what my home town would look like if it had gone through the same zombie filled situation as in the film. At the same time it was a fun exercise in destroying a city and making everything grim and moody.
I started off with a bunch of live plates I took with my digital camera and painted from there. Mostly photoshop work, lots of painting, some references from stock shot and a few models made in XSI (mostly the front barricade and watch towers).
For those who would like to see how this piece evolved I posted the WIP in the digital matte painting forum.
