I’ve wanted to make a scene based on a concept piece by Barry Jackson for the Ralph Bakshi’s movie Cool World for a long time. While the movie wasn’t the greatest, it produced some truly unique concept art. As I worked on it and played with different lighting scenarios, I really felt the dreamlike look I came up with worked more with the content of the scene. I could probably work out a version of the darker look but I’ve dabbled in really dark stuff a good bit and wanted to keep pushing into new territory.
Here’s what I came up with:

I’m happy with it for now but I think maybe animating some of the buildings would be cool.
Anyway, hope you enjoy, thanks.
