Not so much time to participate for a challenge, but regarding the theme, I can’t pass.
So here is a quick concept for the 14th Digital Painting School - post apocalytic challenge.
Prompt was to define the major vista from the Water Keepers, a faction in charge of the rarest ressource on earth in this slight distant future. Their main city has been built on the last clean delta on earth, I assume it’s the Nile don’t know why.
Here is a bit of lore:
Water Keepers lives in various places, close to natural wells, at the top of hydraulics dams, but the most iconic one is The Delta. This stilt city has been erected on the last viable delta on earth. The Nile, which protects and feds people for milleniums.
Even if the Nile Delta itself is a massive clean water provider, Water Keepers are always creative when it come to protect the most valuable ressource on Earth. The iconics massive stilt structures on The Delta aren’t houses but huge water tanks. Shaped like water drops, the top part is a kind of funnel, leading the rain to the low part to be stored.
Only 4 hours to make it in the last two days, quite a rush, and quite happy of the colorful mood as I’m pretty bored of classic post-apo visuals.
Base architecture sculpt has been made in Gravity Sketch.

That’s a really good idea! It really helps build a “world sense” for me. By that I mean the feeling that this is only a glimpse into a much larger world.
I also love the functional design of the buildings. The form, the materials, and the environment all match the intent, and give so much significance to each component. I can see how well planned this was!
Your orange in your image is crushed into yellow, just like the Filmic sweep in my above screenshot. Using “Standard” sRGB view transform would not do you any better since the crushing to yellow is even more ugly in the “Standard” view.
