Taking the best of both my previous birthday submissions, the sunset theme of Planetary Paradise and the realistic Vue influence of Forever and a Cay this here is yet another July 14th submission to commemorate my third birthday on DA, and my 20th in total. Of course, it's another tropical scenery with some cosmic elements visible in the sky...the place I'd love to be :relaxed:

The idea on this one was a little forced, I didn't come up with it as quickly as all the others and so I spent nearly a week making draft scenes in Vue until I got something that was far from my intention, but worked out better anyway, and so, I just continued working nearly a week on that.
The final 3D scene was rendered at 5400x2298 and took nearly 30 hours to do so, and two thirds of that time was on the water alone ( Vue slows a lot on water ) And the planets were postworked in, along with some minor improvements the the 3D aspects of the art...May not be my best, but special to me :love:
Made mostly in Vue 6 and some Photoshop.

Oh, and it's also for :icon3d-asuarus:'s competition too...Which I later won :winner:

I remember first seeing this at 2010 and was just so captivated by how dreamlike the landscape is. Perfectly honest, one of my favorite if not my absolute favorite tropic artwork of all time!

I can barely even remember anything I did in 2010. But I'm glad this was able to leave such a lasting impression so long ago :handshake:

Wish I was there too, especially in these times of seemingly endless trouble and tribulation.

I suppose trouble and tribulation have always been around, it's just festering a little more than usual at the moment :paranoid:
