Abandoned Cave City by JamesLedgerConcepts Abandoned Cave City by JamesLedgerConcepts
I painted this from scratch in Photoshop CS5. This image is not available to buy as it's copyrighted by the client.
It's actually done in several layers so that it can be used as a matte painting with multiple planes. Once the client has produced the final animated scene I will provide a link.
I added atmospheric effects to complete the image for portfolio reasons, but the original matte painting doesn't include these effects as they will be added separately and animated.

Just tell me: what would cause to leave prospering underground city? Disease? Lack of sunlight? Something else?
...
Awesome job, m8 :)

Thanks Man - I am not entirely sure, the game designers kept that a secret from me...

Unfortunately, no. I haven't heard back from them, which is often the case with projects. I don't know what happens with many of the projects I have worked on.

Thanks - yes, they usual don't mind me sharing. If it's a secret project, then I simply make no reference to the image, as they request.
