I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

     This is really awesome output. I liked your compositing very much. Good effort... Good Luck !!!!

  2. Nice, it has a little bit of GTA-4 video game feel over it, maybe Tomb Raider - The final Journey or something...

      •  Yes, I've been playing videogames for over 30 years, I´m a product of my surroundings, I sh*t,eat,live,dream,consume,swim,breathe videogames! In fact, I think I am in one right now, can you prove that we´re not in one right now, can you? *puts tinfoil hat on*

      • It's kind of sad that you obviously underrate videogames in their ability to be a valuable "artistic" influence.
        A lot of artists and overall developers put an incredible amount of work into a videogame. It's not just about the fun, but about the impression and the experience. In a way, they can be more valuable and powerful, concerning how influental they are on the player, than a movie or a picture or a text can ever be.

        • Amen to that. I appreciate people like you; so few people give credit to game designers. It gets very tiresome sometimes to always have people looking down their noses at you.

           I like Krusty's reply more than yours Julian. At least it was tongue in cheek. Credibilita asked if games were the 'only influence'. A valid question, which Krusty ducked by insisting that gaming was indeed his only influence, (obviously not true - but funny). Your own response was to take Krusty's reply as true and earnest. A better one would be to indicate where you have seen a better rendition of a sunset, flower, fight... whatever, in a game rather than in reality and why it was better.


          • Don't get me wrong, reality can be inspiring, but I'm pretty certain that reality won't be able to give you the experience of riding a futuristic racecar through the city at 1000mph like in e.g. F-Zero or WipEout. It's not about what you see and that you necessarily want to recreate the exact same scene you're seeing on-screen, but about the things you feel while playing a game (and, what I would refer to as "inspiration") - things, reality can't deliver. Of course, games are (and should be) just an addition to other "sources" of inspiration. I only assumed that Credibilita doesn't take videogames "serious", so I might be wrong by saying that he or she doesn't, but I guess that's something only he/she can answer to (it's kind of difficult to crop something out of just one sentence, you know).

    • wow same here, when i read Finally i thought its the first scene render :(, i must say this look fantastic well done :)

  3. Superb. It would be wonderful to see this available as a desktop wallpaper over on InterfaceLift :-)

  4. The background buildings are fantastic!

    I'm constantly impressed with the number of Blender users there are out there that can put together a scene that is atmospherically gorgeous. Would love to know if they are painters and/are photographers as well.

  5. Nice!  Agreed with humpdhump - definitely a half-life 2 feel to it.  I think if the evening light was a little less harsh, it would bring out the character and sheep dog more.
