The Desert Labs by Shadowtuga The Desert Labs by Shadowtuga
Well, this is my second digital/matte painting work! It took me much more time than the first one "The Lost Temple", but I think the final result its better.

In the beginning my idea was to create a fantasy scene with some kind of warrior or something like that, however I didn't like the direction the work was taking, so I almost changed everything in the painting an turned it in a sci-fi scene.
It's a desert landscape with some rock towers with labs/buildings on the top an also some underground labs (represented by that little yellow rectangles aka windows). In the horizon you can also see some buildings and factories from the nearest city.

I've learnt new techniques and tricks doing this work and I hope my third digital/matte painting work is even better than this one. I'll keep training.

I hope you like and please give me some feedback, comments and constructive criticism.

Thank you =D

Amazing work. :D

I'm going to be starting a science fiction and fantasy book review blog soon. Any chance that I can use this as a banner-type image on the front page? I'd happily give you credit for it, that's for sure. Let me know at your convenience.

I love this! I particularly like how you did the lighting from the sun. The concept is unique and original, and your attention to detail is impeccable. I like this deviation very much!

That is just TOO amazing.
The amount of detail and depth in this is amazing... Honestly, I'm surprised at this point that a digital painting (no, not a photomanipulation) of this quality hasn't gotten a Daily Deviation yet!
I love the early-morning feeling that the images gives off with its soft lighting....
Also, as I was writing this, I just noticed th person standin at the canyon-side.
M yonly regret is that there aren't more artists like you! You have earned yourself a watcher!

I love the sense of history in this piece, like this place is not just some pretty place dreamed up to make a pretty picture (not that there is anything wrong with that), but a real place with real people living in/with it. Great work.

I really like this environment, kind of gives off the idea of a futuristic, desolate planet Earth with humans struggling to survive. The scale of the massive structures is easily portrayed by the tiny figure of a man which kind of balances out the perspective and gives an idea on how large or small the labs are. Overall, this is a nice piece of art, even though the background structures could've been a bit more detailed. Keep up the good work!

This is a very nice setting. Did you model the buildings after the rock formations in Monument Valley, or is this just sheer coincidence?
