This is matte painting sketch for Grant Morrisons MBX, a new online animating series developed by Virgin Comics and Perspective Studios. It's based on the epic Indian poem, the Mahabhatara. The poem contains stories of Krishna and an epic battle that eventually destroys the whole earth....pretty heavy for a poem written thousands of years ago!
I was asked to create a decaying city, a New York on steroids. I thought, even better...New York on crack!!
..you can see some of the character concept art here:[link]
