Where the eternal sleepers dwell by KaanaMoonshadow Where the eternal sleepers dwell by KaanaMoonshadow
After doing a lot of character studies of late I figured it was time to challenge myself again:

A complex 3D scene that would also require a fair amount of postwork, because why not? :D And because it's almost autumn and I love being out in the woods I decided to create an autumny forest with a slight fantastical touch.

This scene - forest, characters and animals -has been completely set up and lighted in Carrara and has then been imported to Photoshop for several long sessions of postwork. I'd say the 3D/postwork ratio is approx. 80/20 but I feel the 20% really improve the piece overall.

I bet there's lots that can still be improved but all in all, it comes very close to what I had in mind and I hope you'll like it as well! :w00t:

Marvelous scene indeed. It's got that fantastic, primal autumn feel to it.

Love the big red leaved tree and the faces on the trunk and stones. Lovely light too. Perhaps a hint of that white light from the artefact she's holding should touch the leaves above her, just as it touches the tree trunk? I like the composition in this and there is lots of lovely detail to discover

I'm glad you like it! :glomp: It took a while to set up all the details in Carrara, but it was well worth it. Also a great exercise! ;)

Excellent - you've met your challenge very nicely. Although it is a shame to be reminded that Autumn is on the way :-)

Really? Autumn is my favourite time of the year, but that might be because it's usually a lot better regarding the rain/sun ratio than summer. :p I'm glad you like it nonetheless! :D
