    Life After People Project

    Hi there,

    I am currently in the early stages of a project 'Life After People' where I must develop environmental and architectural concepts for the the theme of Life After People. One of the requirements is too come up with as many ideas as possible using a wide range of different drawing media and techniques.

    So far I have done some perspective drawings, quick speed paintings in PS, building silhouettes using marker pen and fine liner, stenciling and using chalk with masking tape to make mountains.

    I would greatly appreciate if anyone could suggest any other ideas I could do to make buildings and landscapes for quick thumbnails.

    Thanks

    Jay

    as in, after people become extinct? There was an article in the Economist once about abandoned high rises in Vietnam, after a brief stint of investment. They're apparently covered in vines and such, now. Try a google image search.

    I take it this is based on the show. They mostly do matte paintings. So you should study natural organic textures and everyday corrosion. Start small with a rusty nail, weeds that grow through the sidewalk and moss. Then you should study buildings that are in the early stages of construction, maybe hunt for natural disaster ref. The rest is all you.
