Paradise City by taenaron Paradise City by taenaron
Paradise City

Always wanted to paint such a pic. Used a reference ( [link] ) for the explosion, rest done without. Base photo one of my own.

Dunno what else I could say. Open for critics and suggestions :)

[link] <-- 100% zoom... funny little guys running away :D
So yea hope you like it.

Mushroom cloud is a bit flat and stiff.

Hey, IDK If you licensed this or not. This just happens to be one of my favorite images on all of Deviant art and I would hate to know if someone was stealing it. Found THIS ---> [link] at an airport the other day. Its obvious its from this image. Just a heads up if you dont already know. Keep of the great work!

the blast ring wouldnt be that large until after the mushroom cloud rose to afew thousand feet so its mis-proportioned, srry other than that it looks good
