Last Stand

A system of alien worlds which were once lush green paradises until there star began to die. Increasing in size and emiting massive amounts of radiation these planets quikely died becoming nothing more than a scorched wasteland. In a desparate attempt to save there worlds and themselves, the inhabitants built huge habitat towers containing everything they needed to survive. As the situation worsened they built a huge energy shield around their more heavily populated world to protect the cities on its surface, the shield regulated the amount of radiation and heat that passed through its barrier. But despite all this they knew the only way they will survive in the long term is a massive exodus from the system as everyday their star becomes more and more unstable, however until then they watch out over the vista at the strangely beautiful sight they have created.


Hehe, well this was fun, However hard also.
I asked :iconphoenix-06: for a collab and he wanted to do one with me, so here it is.
I had fun making it, I started the collab with a basic landscape, then :iconphoenix-06: gave me some awesome textures that he was using for his planets.
So I tried one on the landscape itself and it looked sexy in my opinion, after I finished the landscape I gave it to :iconPhoenx-06: and he did the sky, and yeah I was shocked :p.
I think it come out good and I learnend much.
So thanks to adam because he wanted to make this with me.

Before you stop reading.
Check his gallery also and give him a watch its amazing.

This isn't about Halo Reach, it's about my made-up planet, Thor. The whole story is a fanfic by me, what does the time have to do with my made up planet?

Would you like a pov a surf map like this for our colab?
Or does it matter :P

MCchaz Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2008
Well I would see why don't you suggest it as a DD then :p

Sgtgrandpa Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008
Sounds like a good plan.
Got something for you too look at soon, but it is not a high POV.
The other thing I am about to work on will be. But that will be a week or so before I can get to it.
As you can see, all I do in my spare time is render. Its my way to relax. :D

Absolutely incredible, that sky looks seriously hot with the textured landscape, if I had to find something that could be improved, then its the water, but overall its fantastic.

As always, an outstanding piece of work!

The intricate details and colors used here are breathtaking! And the light shining afar makes me think of a falling star lighting its way as it passes nearby :heart:

Awesome work! Hope to see more! ^_^

Great job on the landscape, it looks as if it was once made of a pale snadstone ( as canyons are ) but the dying star's heat has scorched the rcoks to a darker colour. Though I'm a little confused about the flat are on the bottom-left, is that water or a city?
Reply
:iconmcchaz:
MCchaz Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2008
Well use your imagination for the bottom left.
Its was original water, but it had a very weird texture in it by vue, so i throwed some other texture's in it.
Its looking better by it imo.

Anyway thank you sir.
