After seeing a preview for 2012 (which looked amazing, by the way), I have decided to practice my Photoshop skills and try to come up with something similar, except in one of my home towns - Vancouver, BC. Movies of epic proportions, such as The Day After Tomorrow have always fascinated me mainly because of all the special effects. This is definitely an area where any 3D/special effects geeks can go nuts, so me being one of them, here is my idea of "2012".
This is by no means a finished piece but more of a rough "draft". I just couldn't wait to show it to some of my friends/family. I will update this post if I decide to finish this. For a high resolution version, go here. If you decide to post this somewhere, please link back. Thanks!
