Matte Painting Cover art for the new Kitbash3d collection, Neo Shanghai.
Cyberpunk is my favorite genre for matte paintings, when I got the chance to do this cover I had a lot of fun even thinking about it, the kit is amazing, so detailed and the PBR materials make everything look amazing, minor tweaks were done here and there but the fun of playing with high quality assets is just pure fun!
About the story in this image, I pictured this character in our FG maybe she/he just had dinner at that Diner and is just walking alone under the rain in a big busy city.
the reality about how among lots of people and an environment like this, you can still be and feel totally alone.
it just gives a better storyline than the cliche action shot I guess... Looking to make it look more like a frame from a movie rather than a painting, taking care of the optically correct bloom effects, exponential glows and camera artifacts.
Get it here!
- The New Museum in New York has revealed plans for a planned expansion slated for 2022, with a new building designed by OMA/Shohei Shigematsu and Rem Koolhaas to rise up alongside the institution’s home on the Bowery in downtown Manhattan. The new building comes with plans for a restaurant and an expanded lobby and bookstore. The proposed laminated glass and metal mesh façade echoes the material palette of SANAA's original structure, but aims to provide a “higher degree of transparency” than the museum’s current building. “We are thrilled to work with OMA to address our current and future needs, and selected them for their exceptional response to our brief, their civic passion, and future thinking," said Lisa Phillips, the New Museum’s director, in a statement. "The OMA design will provide seamless connectivity and horizontal flow between the two buildings, expanded space for our world renowned exhibitions, and access to some of our most innovative programs that the public currently cannot see.”

Hi, I’m two months old now, can you believe it?!👶🏼💞
So I’m gonna apologise in advance I’m not really sure where I’m going with this post whether it’s a bit of a rant or whether I need advice... My OH keeps saying what are we going to call the next baby and other similar remarks about having another baby right now, and it’s thrown me a little he’s always been my rock through losing Nevaeh and through pregnancy with Reggie he’s never pushed never said the wrong things he really is great but just recently with the “next baby” for now I’ve been laughing it off but it’s become more apparent he is actually serious, I always hoped one day a few years from now we would perhaps try for another child but I’ve always said if this is it, then that’s what’s meant to be and I’m more than happy with that, when I was younger I would always say “yeah I want like 3 kids” like....how naive like it’s just that easy, I had no idea. Smh 😅 but now I feel like I’m happy with what I’ve got, my two beautiful babies. (OF COURSE I wish Nevaeh was with us physically though) I was back to back pregnant for all together nearly two years with about a 3 month break in between! That’s a lot to ask of your body, I know my body needs a break, time to heal and I need time to enjoy this precious chance at motherhood I have been given! But I don’t want to upset my OH, a part of me feels guilty and there’s a part of me that wishes I could experience what I did with Reggie all over again, but I don’t know if it’s too soon? I don’t know if I could face the chance of losing a child again, I just don’t know I don’t have the answers! I feel confused I’ve been given everything I’ve ever dreamed of, I couldn’t be happier but yet I’m feeling guilty.?!?! I mean I don’t know if any of that made much sense but I had to get that off my chest, sometimes if it goes down into words it gives you more clarity? ♥
Oven roasted potatoes, vegan "pulled beans", green beans and tomato sauce for dinner 🙌🏼😍
No gym today since I pretty much didn't get any sleep at all last night and then had to work a 9h shift on top of that 😅
Tried going to bed at a reasonable time but my mind kept running around in a bunch of different directions which made it impossible for me to fall asleep 😴
I chose to see it as somewhat of a positive thing though, since all the things I was thinking about are things I'm excited about, lookin forward to, or just happy to have in my life right now 😊
