... dat bg. :icondatassplz: Okay, so, this is a personal piece I wanted to create for so long. I sketched down the original idea about ... three years ago? yeh, something like that. Gotta admit that it doesn't look exactly like the original concept, but it's pretty similar ... in some way at least, haha. Anyway, I'm satisfied with the outcome and a little bit proud, too. :B I like it so much, that I even tweaked it, so I can upload it - yes, this is the second version. I didn't intend to publish this, but after it was done, I just fucking wanted to. êe But I couldn't because in the first one I used a picture from google. Yeh, shame on me, but as I said, this wasn't supposed to being published anywhere, so yeah. (oh god, that grammar. :iconohgodwhymemeplz: sorry! I'm too stupid to come up with a proper expression.) Yay me, I found the concept: [link]

Long story short - enjoy! :heart: and - I highly recommend fullview.

Ah, before I forget: you are allowed to download and use this as a background for your personal PC, just don't do anything else with it. :)

Okay, so here's my promised critique. :D

First of I must say the concept is very impressive. Thise worn out city with the rough wilderness. Respect, i could never have done that since I often fail in background prep, but in this piece especially that is perfect. I love how you did the trees coming ouw of the windows, and all those litle details like the ivy.
Thats also why I gave you 5 stars on vision, since the vision is truly amazing and also having the imagination to create such a impressive piece. Which is truly excellent wok. I think it's also quite original, but still not something I have never seen before, sadly. Since there are fist of many movies circulating around this concept. But still it has it's own charme, which makes it original.
The technique used to manioulate the background is i would say perfect, but you could still imrpove on the animal manipulation, since they do seem kidn of out of place. Especially the Vulture. The pose hints it landing, but it's too far away from the ground to be truly in such a pose, which makes it seem weird and out of place. Same for the tiger, which seems way to small, but i don't know if that was intented. The color also seems of which makes me wonder if it's meant to be a stature, if yes you should add some stone texture to make it seem as if it were made out of stone =)
Well those would be the only point of ctritique I would have to offer. So you really did a good job, and I love the lightning as well as the mood.

I gave it 4 stars in impact since in my opinion theres somethign missig which would make it an eye catche, since the vulture seems so off although it's the first thing which caught my eye, thats why I would definitly try to imrpove those little eye catchers. Otherwise it's truly a great piece, and i am inlove with all those little details. And respect, I watched a part of the video. I could never have done it that precise, so great job and keep on the good work!

(Excuse my bad english pls c: )

Great use of selective focus; it really helps provide depth to the image. Love the atmosphere. The low contrast really simulates the filtered light that would be evident at the street level of an abandoned, overgrown urban jungle. I watched the beginning of the video and was impressed with the amount of work that went into creating the environment. :clap:
