It's been quite a while since I've completed anything as I've been busy with a few commercial gigs, but found some time recently to toss this one together. There was no plan, so there's no real focus to speak of, but plenty of 'stuff' to take in I guess... thanks for looking :)

I really enjoy your 'Blade Runner' type pics.  Depressing they may be but I love 'em.

Why does the content filter think this contains nudity?

No idea as I didn't add it, but I did remove it...

I like the dark mood in this image. The future you describe is quite pessimistic, but very believable, alas ...
There are plenty of nice details to look at. Great job.

Nicely detailed set, good job.

I miss a little more contrast in the image in general - some extra lighting would be nice. The signs could glow more and the sun could be more powerfull too.

is this done in 3d modeling then rendered, or photoshop?
JacobCharlesDietz's avatar
Actually, it's a little bit of each :)

Very nice! Great work! How long did this take you to do? Was this just one scene or several scenes you made and pieced it together?
JacobCharlesDietz's avatar
Thanks! :) Yes, this is a composite of several renders - three or four base renders and then lots of little fill in renders as I added bits here and there. It's hard to say how long it took as I pecked at it over the course of a couple of weeks off and on... after the base renders were done, the bulk of time was spent on postwork.

The detail is incredible- what did you render it with?
JacobCharlesDietz's avatar
Thanks, all of my stuff is rendered in Vue 6 Infinite or on occasion sometimes in Vue 7 Infinite.

Weird request, but could I get this in 1600x1200? I'd love to have it fit on my desktop.
JacobCharlesDietz's avatar
No problem - I actually created a desktop of it already, but haven't posted it yet, mostly due to my own laziness... hope this works! :woohoo:


UnrealFanatic's avatar
Oh, that's good. Thanks.

It didn't work though. Gave me an error 404 message.

Glad you wrote me back as I realized I jacked up the file path right after I hit send and then couldn't seem to find my reply to get back to you. Nonetheless, here it is for real this time:


Enjoy :)
