Like that one, this is also a sequel to "Awake": arthurblue.deviantart.com/art/…
During the making of "The Exit" I thought of several possible concepts. In the end I had to opt for one (that's always tough) but I thought that this one now also had some potential so I developed it a bit. To be honest, I even think I prefer this one.
In the other images I received several messages and comments about the material I used for these red lines structures. These structures are not made with materials, they're made with actual 3D geometry. The red itself is just a color (sometimes with some slight reflections) applied to a piece of 3D geometry. Inspired by all these questions, I decided to make this more obvious in this image. So now you can see the red lines isolated from the surrounding infrastructure in some areas, so that you can actually see that there's 3D geometry behind.
Rendered in Vue, as always, with very little post-work.
EDIT: A DD, wow! Many thanks to little-billie for suggesting it and to PolyMune for featuring it.
First of all congrats on the well deserved DD! I had to come look at this to see the difference. I really love as well! I would be hard pressed to have to choose between this and the sunset version I just commented on. They both are wonderful work!
I will squeeze out as much honesty from myself as i can. Saw this picture previous year, obviously pleased.
Downloaded it and set on my laptop's and PC"s screen. Showed to my friends, dreamed this place can be created at least if not in real world then in-game.
The athmosphere, It feels real, warm enough (not hot), clean and fresh. It's like on my suburbian "dacha" but modern one. You can feel this athmosphere with every cell of your body and that's you want to feel if you was there i think.
The water. There's enough water, it allow you swim in it, but you can also watch it. Just bacause it flows quietly and smoothly exact where it should be, therefore it's so cool.
The building. Well, i'm the journalist, not the architect. But i like modern architecture. When especially you can mix it with the nature. Mix competently, with the exact vision of the each detail.
The sun. It's there and it's reflect from the water stream.
This reminds me a lot of a videogame I used to play a very long time ago, called "The longest journey" by FX interactive. I loved their futuristic looks for the backgrounds and I think this one really fits. I like it.
Can't believe i haven't commented it yet! It's a morning? If so i like it even more. You combined some technologies and mother nature in one single scene. You did it so masterfully so i used this as my wallpaper didn't i tell you? Thanks dear artist.
