Just finished this after about a month of hard labour
Modelled in 3ds max, rendered using vray, trees made using Forest Pack Lite and post in photoshop as usual.
Set 100 years after the end of civilisation.
Cool, thanks. I'd be happy to hear some more specific feedback about the composition. Always good to get some new perspectives
Crisply done and a pleasure to look at. I have some possible critiques which could also not be valid critiques at the same time but they are just my thoughts.
- The elephant looks too... I don't know, obviously placed.
- The sky seems kind of generic.
- Only one decrepit car on the highway? Seems unlikely.
There's also a lot of the same type of bush/invasive weed that's covering the buildings and the ground levels as well. Slightly different variations couldn't hurt. Nice though, good job on this.
Keep doing you

lovely work. I totally agree with Vulgar on all points.
maybe have a heavily modified moon, ie you can see it is dotted and striped with megastructures.. or something.

Thanks for the comments guys! Only thing is with the car, I didn't want lots of cars because I didn't want this kind of post apocalyptic scene to reflect a world that ended in a great war or sudden catastrophe, rather something subtle like a virus or economic collapse etc. So this car was likely ditched at some point well after the end times rather than right in the middle of it.
The sky is generic? It's the sky! What do you want?
I see a square around the moon where the blue around it doesn't match the rest of the sky. Is it a compression error or some problem with the original?
Pretty awesome piece...great vegetation!
Just speaking as an illustrator, though I gotta say I really want to see a) some structural damage on the foreground buildings (they're basically intact right now) and b) some more interesting architecture (i.e., a bit less boxy.) Those two changes would go a long way toward selling the concept.
nice image. the buildings are really cool with the broken glass and all.
Although it's not a matte painting.
lol, it's 3d!
Just the far distant background and elephant are photo I couldn't do all that with brushes!
I like how you managed the colors and how the vegetation seems integrade with the buildings.
lovely render my only crit would be when was the last time you saw an elephant by its self? You may have intended it to be like this to add to the desolate feeling or how the world is in disarray though.
