More futuristic cityscapes, but am really enjoying doing them at the moment. Stonemason's Greeble Pack used extensively again, plus Dysopia Buildings, and a few of my own. The sky is a mix of six or so different photographs and a lot of painting.

As usual, a larger view is recommended. Thanks for looking and any comments...Cheers, Ian

Exceptionnal, bravo !! I do love the light on the right side. Do you also use Ron Deviney brushes ?

Maybe some of my scifi buildings stocks may interest you, if you need something special,i can try to do, enjoy..

Have a nice weekend.

Thanks...Yeah, I use Ron's brushes all the time. Unfortunately he's started making his new ones for newer versions of Photoshop than mine, so I can't use his latest stuff as I can't afford to upgrade at the moment.

That is so freaking amazing. It looks like a mix of some Star Wars city and Midgar (Final Fantasy 7) :iconcloudeweplz: [link] How did you even learn how to do stuff like this?

Tutorials, books and mucking about with the software...I just love doing this stuff and can't help but play around with it every chance I get. Thanks for the kind words.

I love those type of scenes. Very well done here! Allow me a question: When creating those large scenes do you create all the far away background city blocks in Cinema 4D too or do you use Photoshop for copying or filling out those large areas. I just ask because those scenes can be very RAM intensive and often not so easy to handle. So do you create many C4D files and composite them in Photoshop or is this one single C4D file with ALL models included? Thanks in advance for any kind of tip :)

Phew, let me think, it's been a while since I did any of these. Actually, as I remember it the polygon count wasn't too high on this one. I did make seperate passes for Diffuse, Ambient Occlusion, Key Light and I think a Top Light pass as well, and composited all those in Photoshop, together with a fog pass to give it some depth. The foreground buldings I think were a seperate render. The sky, clouds and smoke and such were painted in PS. There's some great tutorials on the web, and in Ballistic Publishings two Matte Painting books, expensive but well worth the money if your serious.

Ironically I have a much more powerful 64 bit machine now which could handle a lot more than what's in this scene. Maybe I'll get back on the matte painting wagon again and see what I can come up with.
