New York Ruins by JonasDeRo New York Ruins by JonasDeRo
Yes it happened, a ruins matte painting of NY.

I chose not to put in any famous buildings since that's been done many times. (sorry Shreeve, Lamb and Harmon :p)
I took the plate of this pic on the roof of the POD hotel somewhere around 55th.

Amazing work! I have stayed in the POD - This image is even more evocative, as I recognise the area here.

I cannot explain why, but I adore this piece - in fact I adore the humor of it. How the mighty have fallen and all that. But then, for years as a child I used to have nightmares of my own city, London (UK) being in ruins like this. Resembling something that had been nuked out.

Hello  JonasDeRo,  I am starting a post-apocalyptic story on Episode Interactive, a mobile story making app. This would make a great scene in it.  I was hoping to get your permission to use this in my story.  You will be given credit for it.

It's so... calming, in an eerie way. A reassurance that even once we are dead and gone, the world will keep turning. Beautiful piece.

i usually love your works but how is it that that building is still stand, the tallest one, i happen to be a electrical engineer and we were taught in some mechanical courses that no way can the centre of mass be balanced like that, the top or upper floors should collapse  that

Hi... I didn't realise you didn't say anything about allowing people to use this pic for their deviations, so I'm so sorry. It was just a pic I did for fun and only for deviantart (for no profit). I can take the pic off my devianart if you want.

Used it here... emzleh.deviantart.com/art/Oran…

Well, I decided this is a good enough place to advertise it. So, on my page, I decided that I am going to do a weekly, maybe even daily, Zombie Apocalypse "Journal." I don't want to write a book, too much at one time, if you ask me, but anyway, all you have to do is comment on my page if you think I should do it. Cuz I might not do it, if you guys don't want it. Anyway, just tell me.This landscape looks really good, by the way.

I know nothing about engineering and architecture, but wouldn't that part of the tallest skyscraper (the one in what I think can be considered midground) have fallen a long time ago? Or is only that corner of the building missing?

You know for some reason, viewing ruins of cities always seem interesting for me to look at, even if it were my sweet home Chicago, although I've been to New York a couple years ago.
