This was my contribution to WeeklyCgChallenge "Abandoned Cities". Tools used Blender + GrasWald + Gimp. Wanted to take a "real" approach to this one instead of creating those post apocalyptic Sci Fi towns that we often sees. It was a terrible thing that happened, so I have tried not to "disturb" or change the reality too much to really conserve the actual and real feeling that people get when visiting this place now.
