The Gate Of Purgatory by voytek
This is a photoshop painting I recently finished.
I got the idea when I was in Germany working as Art Director for a game company. One day a couple of us went for a walk around the small town and we came across an old World War II cemetery which had many soldiers burried in it. There was a big tower in the middle with a chimney on top, and when I looked inside the openening it was very dark and I could see various caskets placed vertically along the walls. The atmosphere was quite disturbing.
This painting started out as a 3D render which I eventually painted over and used some matte painting techniques as well. Time for the painting took about 10 hours.
