Hell's around the corner by Ben-G-Geldenhuys Hell's around the corner by Ben-G-Geldenhuys
One of the sets for my animation Code:Noir [link]

this is what used to be a Shell petrol station in Pretoria somewhere (couldn't remember where exactly, if I remember correctly it was in Burnett street :shrug: ) basically portraying the circumstances in the story... all hell broke loose :o

It's partially photo-manipulated and mostly painted over the photo


approximately 1 hour

oh damn!! That really is amazing man! Really enjoy this piece a lot. Has that silent hill-ish feeling to it, dark, warm tones, has that soft look to it yet a really creepy mood. Well done! :D

Wow, this is cool.
Near where I live there's a Shell station and then once we were driving by it at night and the 'etter s had burned out so all you could see was hell. This picture reminds me of that because you kind of blurred out the s.

Really? that's pretty ironic...

I did this as a background for my in-progress animation named Code:Noir and it basically states the circumstances in which the story takes place, being in a state of full-scale war... and as it's been already said: War is hell.

I'm glad you like it, thanks :D

Ooh, I like this... I can just imagine driving down through some country road or distant, strange suburbia, and pulling in for gas here.

Thanks :D

In this case it won't really be a possibility, the petrol/gas will probably be stolen or just dried up... the kind of conditions one would expect of a war.

The only good that could come of this location is semi-good cover or shelter (if one's brave enough to sleep)

I like how you made the "S" blurry in the word Shell showing that the place could really be Hell. Very creative and wonderful work

Uh.. no this is not hell... it is in fact still earth (in South Africa to be precise :D ), it's just in a war-like scenario... sort of post-apocalyptic.

thanks ;)

Kevin Kostner is the best in The Postman, his other stuff is kinda crappy..... well accept for Robin Hood.

I've never been a fan of Kostner really, but he is a good actor...

he's not bad in The Guardian either
