Postcard from The Zone by lukpazera Postcard from The Zone by lukpazera
I am a huge fan of Strugacki's Brothers "Roadside Picnic" book and the concept of "Zone". I find the atmosphere of Chernobyl Exclusion Zone very close to it, it's my constant inspiration. This picture was created using acrylic paints and ink on paper first. Then, I took it to Photoshop and Painter to add some details and fine tune whole image.

Very "Roadside Picnic" like! I get the distinct "Zone" feel from this instantly!

I wish shadow of chernobyl was as good as the book it's based from. Although SoC was a good game...
Good picture

this is beautiful. i've always liked those huge power lines. they remind me of like urban trees, in concrete jungles. not to mention the way they always contrast with the sky is appealing. : ) anyways, i love this piece.

And again, a master peice.

I really love it. Such depth of shadow and feeling. So oppressive.

And I love the worn and broken look to the pylons, they look as if returning to nature...

Excellent work :)

Indeed, Strugacki's Roadside Picnic and Andrei Tarkovsky movie "Stalker" both are so cool!

Love atmosphere in this!

Looks totally awesome.

I love this sort of abandoned and bleak look :)
