Heaven and Hell by Vectortrance Heaven and Hell by Vectortrance
HEAVEN AND HELL
________________

This marks the first of what I hope to be many full fledged digital matte paintings. 
Heaven and Hell was an experiment in fantasy landscapes and how various lighting, shading, and coloration can entirely alter the mood.

I used traditional matte painting techniques mixed with some photomanipulation, and worked a little bit of magic through the power of Photoshop... This is the result.

I've often pondered if there is a hellish alternate reality everpresent, but on a different plane... One that can't be seen by the naked eye. If one had goggles to see into this hellish reality, they'd see their surroundings not as they would normally appear, but in tragic disarray... crumbling, decaying, burning... Flesh rotting off the bone. Lovely eh?

Anyway, thanks for taking a look. I'm open to suggestions, comments, questions, etc. as this is a first attempt.

Oh. Maybe I should mention, this image wasn't intended to be used as stock, or anything. But if you feel the need to use it, that's all good. Just give me a link after so I can check it out :)

I like duality things like this. Two sides of the same coin type thing, everything has its opposite, etc.
