Another concept art approach, this time focusing on a MYST inspired age instead of another world. My idea was that it is a tree garden where plants are grown in a kind of glass houses high up above the clouds so that the sunlight will reach them. (For fellow myst fans: To follow all the garden ages of URU / MYST the name had to be Eder something :) )

This is a 'speed' painting, done on top of one of my sky photographs, about 10 hours work!

**UPDATE** A DD??? For this? Wow :faint: What a wonderful surprise to log in and see this morning :love: Thank you so much to PutYourBraveFaceOn for suggesting and to Lyricanna for featuring :hug:

And thank you all who comments and faves, love you guys!! :blowkiss:

I would love to build that for MOULA. I have a concept that I have been itching to do for years. 
CassiopeiaArt's avatar
Well if you ever get the time to do it, please do. Would be so awesome to see this as an actual playable age :aww:

If I could find someone to help with the wiring I would make time. The Blender plug-in automatons are limited to common functions. Linking books, placing link in areas and so on. We can have an animated sky with day and night cycles but it needs a Python expert to wiring the automation. This goes for anything outside the norm which is what I have in mind. Then comes egos when no pay check is involved. It is very hard to find other that are willing to make worlds based on collective ideas let alone getting on the same page. Been deep in the community some years back I know how hard it is to get 3 people with the skills working together. As a fellow fan once said "it's like herding cats". 

I reckon I can handle a lot of the low poly modelling and texturing. I would need a crash coarse in vertex painting in Blender but I can learn fast. Lighting and light maps yeah given enough play time I am pretty sure I could do that. But when it comes to coding...forget it.

So... I'm part of a fan group that makes fan Ages for the Uru community.  This is a beautiful concept and I hope someone picks up on it.  Hence the fave.

Ooh, may I use the name in a story? I have no idea what its significance is so I'm sorry if I offend =D
CassiopeiaArt's avatar
Sure, go for it. It comes from the D'ni language ( a MYST created language from Cyan ) so it does not belong to me anyway :)
IsleintheSkye's avatar
Oh, cool! That's awesome, thanks!
