Been a while since I've uploaded an image. This was my entry into the Vue 2008 Landscape contest - but since the contest is over, I can now play with the image and do postwork. The little huts and hanging huts were made in C4D, landscape patterns and texturing done in Photoshop to create height maps for Vue. I gave myself a goal to illustrate - "Who in their right mind would want to live THERE?!" I may revisit this in the future with FAR more extensive Photoshop painting to really make it something different from straight-out-of-the-render looking, and more like a real matte painting. We'll see... Thanks for looking, and any and all comments and suggestions (especially suggestions!) are welcomed and appreciated. -Lew ;-)

Brilliant work. I love the scale of this--HUGE. Very good atmo also. It complements the icy terrains which by the way are fantastic. 5

What a wonderfully exotic environment you've created here. Great work!

excellent and even better question! For some reason dangling up in the sky just would not be my idea of fun in a sudden artic storm.

Fantastic original concept with fine modeling and terrain work,the lighting is also very well done!!


ArtPearl 9:38PM | Sun, 17 August 2008

I love this scene. Amazing what can be achieved with such a limited palette of colors. The relative scale is a bit confusing - if the doors of the huts are about human size, the steps on the front ladder seem like a 1/3 of human's hight, a bit of a difficult climb. It would help to have a human in the scene (or a bear or a moose...) to help sort out the scale. An orange light (complement to the blues in one of the huts may serve as a good focal point. Its a great image already, but you asked for suggestions...
