Sci-fi City by JadrienC Sci-fi City by JadrienC
It's winter here in my hometown... I photographed the plate while walking along the Penobscot river. I left the old bridge in the mid-ground as a reminder of the past and let the city fall off on its own aesthetic path.

there's no way she would walk for such a distance in that futuristic place.
she's probably a hologram or a ghost.
awesome design.

Future cities are my favorite!  So the Penobscot river?  Is that somewhere in Maine then?

So beautiful. It just hit me, that everybody does this kind of futuristic city setting, during spring or summer. There must be others, but this is the first really winter looking one.
Really awesome work. I love the atmosphere so much.

This is absolutely beautiful, I love the mix of the old bridges with the very new and futuristic buildings. It's also rare that I've seen a future-style picture and the weather is snowy - most of the time it's sunny or rainy or very overcast. This picture perfectly captures an average day in winter in a city of advanced technology. Just plain outstanding, wonderful work! <3

What is matte painting?

jambe Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2013
It's painting on top of a photo and/or 3D image, either to provide conceptual material or to directly alter scenes in video/film. For reference:

This is interesting. I dfon't think I've ever seen a sci-fi city in the winter time.
Reply

mdbruffy Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013
I think that's because most sci-fi comes up with some way of controling the weather so they don't have to deal with it- or else the story takes place on a tropical world or a desert world where cold weather's not an issue.

Winter is always used for dystopias and post-apocalyptic scenes, as a way to imply hopelessness and death. Rainy weather is rarely used at all, since the cool art gets lost behind it. Otherwise, bright green summer day with gleaming blue and white buildings is the default, picked just because people are more attracted to it than for any setting reason. It's the cookie cutter suburb of SF art.

Just using snow or rain for the hell of it is pretty awesome, especially when it's executed this well. People hustle and bustle in winter too!

Once in a while you'll get weather in Sci-fi. It rained for most of Blade Runner.

There really isn't too much winter sci-fi floating around, especially city themed, which is too bad.
