Hymn To This World by Akajork Hymn To This World by Akajork
Hymn To This World,


If I were God, I would have made the world just so and no different. So morning would feel like a clear piano note, deep and consent, an abiding belief that makes someone strong. Rain would pour down like a fountain from the sky, flushing away everything you wished to forget.
The grass would feel comfortable, like coming home to the house where you grew up. Memories would be kept, nothing lost.
Life would be a hymn to this world.

Personal work.
Originally this is a still frame from an animation. Watch the original clip here: [link]

Time for a winter illustration now.

Thanks for your clicks

I think I saw this one when I searched for matte painting ages ago. Good work! I really like how it looks pretty realistic, yet very fantasy. The lighting is awesome, did u do lighting in Maya? It would be nice to be able to see ripple effects on the water in your original clip :)

this truly is stunning work, the short animation blew me away. but im confused as to whether this is a painting or 3d work? maybe zbrush?

i used a combination of 3d and 2d paint work... the landscape is a 2.5d matte painting projected on cards in Nuke and the foreground is a 3d model, lit and textured in maya. Its all been brought together in Nuke for compositing.
Thanks!
