Apocalypse Now by Adam-Varga Apocalypse Now by Adam-Varga
After watching the documentary "Life after People", which shows what earth would look like after we're long gone, I was inspired to do this matte painting.
When modern civilization collapses, the earth will dispose of our cities like bad leftovers.

Took about 9-10 hrs, Photoshop cs3, All original photos
Hope you enjoy it!

 Can I ask you how did you learn to paint like this on photoshop? Did you take an online course or something, or learned all by yourself? (and how long did it take for you to master photoshop like this?)

 Sorry for asking all those questions xD I draw a lot and I'm doing a comic.. I might use photoshop in the future to color it but I know literally nothing about how to paint and where to start.

 Stay well :)

Hey you, with the shirt and the skirt and the eyes and the hair! 

Awesome work! I remember this one.  I can't imagine you ever giving up art. 

P.S, this is Tory xD!

Adam, Just watching "Life After People" now.

I've created a team to work on a TV Series I've created entitled, "PRAIRIES."

I am looking for a Visual Artist to visualize the Commune and main Cities we envision. The History doc, of course, sets out the Tiimeline and good parameters.

Let me know if you'd be interested. (It's all "Work for Hire" and you'd sign an NDA.)

Thanks
Neal Golden

I love this "clean" style. I'll want to know how to render all the images together without a bunch of filters and gradient maps. Hopefully someday you make a tutorial! hehe. Great work!

I plan to make a tutorial for this soon, I use very few filters, the key is to find  images with similar lighting. thanks for the comment!
