Sulphurygen by Shue13 Sulphurygen by Shue13
I had the extreme privilege to visit a refinery a couple of months ago and with the exceptional authorisation of the Refinery of Grandpuits in France I had this plate, and couldn't resist turning it into a sci-fi matte painting.

I assure you, the visit was just awesome, I know I know a refinery is not the glamourous place ever but it is just another world. You feel like being in a gloomy scene from Blade Runner movie, with steam, pipes everywhere, noise, and oil smells. I went around 35m up the ground just exactly where the two aliens are. Kind of creepy he he...!

Hope you will like it, this is mostly 2D for I pushed further my painting skills. Basically only the main spaceships have been modelled in Zbrush but postworked quite a lot.

Cheers for your favs and comments!
Textures and stocks are mine.

First time I've ever heard of being in one as a privilege lol. There are lots of plants and refineries up where I live. From ground level, all you see is a maze of pipe catalytic towers, boilers and whatnot.

Normally, you can't have access to such places mainly for security reasons. That's why being able to shot there is a real priviledge.

So I have a question to ask, would it be alright if I used some of your art as stock images for backgrounds within my 3D work? Sometimes I need backdrops like this, and though I doubt I'd ever get this good to create on this scale. I figured I'd just ask you. If you dont allow the use of your art, it's all good. This piece has been in my favs for quite some time so I guess I didnt think to ask until now
