Metru Nui under the rule of the Makutaverse

Couple months ago, I thought it would be fun to make a little photoshop edit of a back alley in Metru Nui after Makuta had taken control of it. I’m not very good at photoshop so I’m looking for feedback. Please tell me what you think!

OOHHHH
I really love this!
It looks like real-world’s atmosphere, but it makes much for “Rough” the city! :blush: :blush:

THAT’S SO AWESOME!

Now we just need a realistic looking Matoran hiding behind an alley and a Vahki coming down the alley in search of the Matoran

Thank you very much for the kind words! Yeah, I try to squeeze in as many real world details when I depict fictional places because I feel like it helps the viewer ground themselves - I never really got the Orwellian Nightmare they were going for in the rest of 2004’s story actually bled through to the film, so I wanted to maybe try my hand at envisioning it.

@The_Blue_Panda Yooo, that would be pretty cool!

@runner5050 Yeah! This is actually a screenshot of the image preview - I didn’t want to launch photoshop just to export the PSD for a quick post, but… (Well I don’t know if I should be saying this because it sort of “locks” me into a project I’m not decisive about complaining lol) it’s an asset for a larger project that may or may not find its way into completion in the near future!

@N01InParticular High praise coming from you! I’m honoured!

@ToaKebaka Thanks for the kind words!

@HeadsintheLethe Thank you! Love your PFP by the way!

@HeadsintheLethe Wow, you made it in a gas station? That’s even more incredible!!

@Atobe_Brick & @rac Yup, it’s a B.

h and b look similar to each other in the Matoran alphabet, but I’m pretty sure that’s a b.

It says “obey.”

It’s a B, you can tell if you zoom in. The cracks on the wall make it look like a H.

No credit is necessary! Please just post as you’d like!

I really, genuinely like your edit, by the way. It’s got such a nice feel. The sky you added also does a lot.
