Wish you were here by Chromattix Wish you were here by Chromattix
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:

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

One question do you do bigger picture sizes for wallpapers or no?

I can send larger versions by request, but only up to a certain size to avoid people using them for other purposes.

Just tell me the size you need and give me an e-mail address to send it to. If I can't provide that size then I'll send the next closet thing.

I keep imagining to be on a moon with 2 suns orbiting a gas giant with rings, the view would be absolutely breathtaking, as much as i would like to be somewhere like that in real life, i dont see the human race achieving the next big step in history to colonize another planet much like our own.

Even if we could get there - I think all thew radiation and tidal effects would probably kill us anyway ^^; But I create scenes like this as if to say "what if we can just experience it anyway" =p

This would be my vision of what Heaven would look like. You have captured all that is good with the Universe and have combined it in a way that welcomes the eyes and soul into a comforting everlasting. I am not much on religion, instead this represents what is possible and what can be believed in.

Thanks! That's how I feel too so it's good to see someone get it. This is part of an annual series I do which does combine the best of Earth and the universe together in a "perfect world" scenario just like that :nod:

I'm not big on religion either, there are some parts of it I wish were true - but a lot more that I'm glad aren't :stare:
