Concept - Old Backstreet by ANTIFAN-REAL Concept - Old Backstreet by ANTIFAN-REAL
Hello all, :)

A scene concept for an arid area - the geographical position and altitude required some pretty strong sunlight and contrast, it was tricky to balance all that with a well rounded images showing the claustrophobic back streets – the light had to stream into the alleys very strongly.

Original res 3200 high
Painted in PS CS3
Wacom Intous 3 tablet
About 8-10 hours painting time (can't be sure)


I hope you all like it. :)

the atmosphere of this one makes you feel like your standing right there in that backstreet.

Oh wow! This is the kind of stuff I like. Besides urban decay, streets and alleyways very similar to these are always so... inspiring to me for some reason. I applaude the amount of work you put into this to make this picture! *thumbs up*

Reminds me of the game "Assassins Creed", there are always such small backstreet with all the waywardness and these big cloth and all that stuff
Great stuff!

This is really beautiful. I love all of the delicate details, like the cracks and rough texture of the walls, and the colors are balanced very well. I like the slightly green tint.

The lighting looks amazing, so you did an excellent job trying to contrast it all. It indeed looks claustrophobic and the debris fits in nicely. The piece is definitely intriguing and all of the details and textures are very well done.
