    The image is really beautiful. As someone who enjoy SciFi it reminds me a lot of those Coruscant hive city vistas painted by Ralph McQuarrie.

    One advice, visit the site the artist personal website too

    It's worth a shot.

    And if you are on diet, don't watch the sweet french pastries... I would kill for one right now... :(

    PS : the french pastries are on the portfolio (link at the end of the "making of")

    WOW, Great job :)....
    I see Indigo is very capable renderer.... only one question - How long did it take to render the still picture?

  • Chris

    I'm curious about render time as well. A modern graphics card would happily render such a scene at 60 fps but Blender works nowhere near as fast.

    Very high quality composition. It looks like a frame from Babylon 5 or something like that.

    Chris: A modern card could render that at 60fps if everything was pre-computed, i.e. baked normal, AO, shadows... etc

  • PavelSiska

    This picture is perfect inspiration for game projekt ;)....

  • PapaSmurf

    Awesome. I'd love to work with you. I'll ask my boss to get in touch...
