Dust by shadothezombie Dust by shadothezombie
Hey guys!

Just another misfortunate day in the Wasteland that we all love!

Update: 11.09.2013

Thank you so much for the DD! Hugs and kisses for ^Emerald-Depths :)

This piece took some time to come together. Around 10 hours of work in PSCS6, 72 layers.

What's interesting is that the land is actually shot from a hot balloon (shoutout to `faestock) and in my image the bushes are actually large trees :)

People reported several problems with the image - pespective issues (car and girl too big), lighting issues, but for now I haven't decided if I will change it. Let see how the feedback will go and we'll see.

Stocks used:

Ground by `faestock
Sky/Clouds by ~therainbowbrain
Gas Station by ~kuskostock
Buggy by ~DarkForce82
Demolished Car by ~DruidWuStock
Steampunk Mechanic Pack by *mizzd-stock

Textures from cgtexures.com as well as some custom textured brushes to simulate rust/wearing. Details like the tire marks, distant structures, cables are painted.

Man, this image is just amazing. If you still have the PSD file, could you kindly send it to me too? I would love to study it.

may i kindly ask your process of putting something like this together? how do you start and what techniques do you use to get all the elements correctly proportioned to the background. I struggle with this the most. I find your work so inspirational.

I will check if I still have the original *.PSD file with all the layers and if I still have it, I will send it to you so you can reverse engineer it ;)

I just stumbled upon this. I really like the concept, the idea of no authority and a more serious sense of responsibility, in terms of survival, when placed in a wastelandish area such as this. Wonderful piece.

Perfect composition. Love the dusty feel of the entire artwork. The only thing that seems off is the size of the model. If she had been just a bit smaller, this would be perfect.
