Industrial Railway by Ben-Andrews Industrial Railway by Ben-Andrews
Abandoned industrial railway environment. I wanted to convey a slightly uncomfortable, eerie location through the use of some strange lighting. Im a big fan of the environment design in the original Half life- visiting those trainyards again inpired this piece.

Utterly stunning. There is not a single thing I don't like about it. Fantastic work mate.

I absolutely love the color scheme and lighting in this. It feels so desolate and abandoned.

An amazing piece. On the occasion I travel on the train, I always see some gloom when approaching a platform (Mainly London's) and this picture really does represent the mood, yet I find it quite astonishing.
Again, great work.

Wicked--there's an area in S.T.A.L.K.E.R that looks very much like this :D

Mmmm... discomfort. I like.

It does ring of Half Life, though it has more resemblance to the atmosphere in Episode 2 than the Half Life 1 to me. I'll have to go play the original again.

Dang it, just when I was getting things done.

Yeah i like those episodes, but for me its the quiet exploration and loneliness of the first games environments (and pacing of events) that get me every time. HL2 is more like an action movie for me.

True. There's nothing like solitude to accent atmosphere. Speaking of atmosphere, have you ever played S.T.A.L.K.E.R.?

It's not overly common, but I'm sure Amazon or some other site has a copy or five for sale.

What really adds to that feeling of discomfort is the different tracks, each a different focal point. It doesn't distract the eye, but messes with it just a bit.
