Inflatable landscape

Imagine a surreal world where everything is like rubber, where you could run full speed into a "tree" only to have it bend on impact and throw you back only to land on a soft-padded ground :boogie: Sounds like the fantasy of a 5-year old, but who can't say they'll enjoy it? :D

I originally made this scene several months ago, but it became a rare case where I didn't bother to render it and upload here, and it probably would have stayed on my PC gathering dust if the ~3dartistclub didn't hold a contest themed "colourful"...just a small contest, but the perfect excuse for me to post this anyway :D

This may be the weirdest Vue scene you'll ever see, I deliberately threw realism out the door and wanted to create something unusual and "fun"...though modelling some of those elaborate intertwining structures in the back was a bit of a pain at the time, but playing with various blobby shapes that made and imported to Vue and giving them brightly coloured materials was fun, you can vaguely see a "landscape" like picture here, and since I was reminded of balloons, well that's the origin of the title :airborne:
The only postwork was turning the sky green near the top (was plain orange before) everything else is pure 3D :nod:

P.S - it makes a cool wallpaper, but I'm afraid this is the biggest size I'm willing to make public, enjoy anyway :)

Edit: Changed the planets from "realistic" ones to swirly bouncy ball-like ones, I think they're more appropriate ;)

they are like biological rubber balloons with these weird shapes all over the landscape, i can imagine it being a artificial planet made by a fun-loving alien race.

Those aliens sure know how to have fun then :lol: Maybe they made it for the kids so there's no way they'd hurt themselves. Talk about coddling them :rofl:

Love the bulbosity of the plants...can imagine them swaying in the breeze!

If a tree got uprooted, would it float away?
Chromattix's avatar
Hmm, depends on what it's filled with. According to the classic TV trope which explains the common rule of All balloons have helium - then regardless of what's in them, they'll float anyway :XD:

Better not be holding onto the tree when you cut it 'down' then. :-)

reminds me of something Dr. Seuss would make.

He always created some of the coolest-looking landscapes :D
Looks like a scene from a video game.
Chromattix's avatar
Probably one of those cool, unique looking games though rather than a realistic one :XD:

Can I use this as my wallpaper? :3
Chromattix's avatar
Wallpaper use is OK :)

Ooh, shiny!
This almost reminds me of something from one of my favorite books from when I was little!
Chromattix's avatar
Sounds like the kind of book I would have loved too if it had stuff like this in it :dummy:

Nova's Ark, I believe it was called.
It was for really little kids, though...
But this kinda reminds me of something from that.

what program did you ues
Chromattix's avatar
I used Cinema 4D to make all the "blobs" and I brought them into Vue (another 3d program) where I could create those cool shiny textures for them and be able to replicate them quickly for the background (it has a feature that lets you scatter your 3D objects all over any given surface quickly, so I could fill that distant blob-forest rather quickly :phew:)

Awesome! If you don't mind I'd like to use it as my desktop wallpaper one of these days!
Chromattix's avatar
I don't mind people using my art as personal wallpapers, so long a sit isn't uploaded to other sites etc ;)

Thanks for faving too :)

OH MY GOODNESS I was trying to clear my thousands of deviations and found this!! :giggle: Forgive me, O master, for my ultra late comment ^^;
(of course, I always make the effort to comment on this pretty boy's works like he does to mine xD)

OH MY GOODNESS (again) I wanna pluck those thingies off the comp screen and squeeze them!! haha... they really look like the sort of rubber/plastic figurines in designer toy shops that attracts idiots like me who just love weird things xD :love:
Chromattix's avatar
Lol, I don't think the deviations in my messages ever exceeded 400 - and that was after being away for 2 weeks, even then I only commented the better ones or from ones from artists that tend to appreciate comments more to save time :work:

You and me both are attracted to cheap plastic merchandise :XD: - luckily there's no such stores where I live so my money remains un-wasted :lol:
Little-kaiyou-Kame's avatar
Aww so I'm one of those "artists that tend to appreciate comments more to save time" haha :D Actually true, I put more effort into commenting on an artist's work when I know that person will appreciate it ^^

aaaaack.. haha, I waste too much money! *eats grass* Nah actually I don't spend on toys lol. Everything I get always has a purpose! They...have a meaning in life! hahaha
