:iconedlo: vs :iconkire1987:

The concept of this piece is about the unsolved mystery of the Bermuda Triangle where ships and planes got lost over and over again. It's quite a sarcarstic presentation of this common mystery. :P

The Devil's Sea, also known as the Dragon's Triangle, the Formosa Triangle and the "Pacific Bermuda Triangle", is a region of the Pacific around Miyake Island, about 100 km south of Tokyo.

landscape rendered by ~edlo, postwork is mine. It's a mix of manipulated stocks with some digital painting here and there.

This work is such a lovely mixture of 3d rendering and real photographs manipulation. By the looks of it I can only assume the 3d rendered part (sea/ocean and island) was rendered in bryce.
I love the idea of the piece, being based on the Bermuda Triangle, because it is the first I have seen based on it which makes it unique as it is at least in my eyes.
Really well executed in terms of effects, I love the circles around the land, I assume some sort of magnetic field going all around it (might sound random but it makes me think of Lost).
