Mighty Mushroom World

Mushroom world. A environment over run with mercury and overgrown fungi plantation
I did a lot of research before painting the scene. I was aiming to get the feeling of that opening scene of when Neo first sees the real world. I imagined in my scene mushroooms and fungi have overgrown the size of cities. In this cloudy dead world a new type of plantation has grown over. The Mercury river runs through the ground the sediment deposits. It has just rained and the view is crisp with no clouds for miles. Thumbnails below of my thinking process
