The Terminal



It's been a while since I did not make a matte sci-fi scene and here is "The Terminal".
This one is fully inspired by a French artist I discovered in the following book in french (sorry...): [link]
It's Paul Chadeisson I should credit him for the composition and the brushes he kindly shared, check out his website: [link]
Have a look at his gallery, it's really good.

Nevertheless, everything has been fully made by myself, no like for like elements. I added many things, details and textures.

Here are the stocks I used, mostly for the left part of the plant:

Planet texture from the NASA site:

All the rest has been painted or from my own stock.

Hope you guys we'll like it.

Wonderful, subtle and intriguing. You've really captured a very grounded, recognisably 'earthy' sense of industrial enterprise in an otherwise fantastical scene. The restraint you've shown on the shadow-side of the plant is admirable - there's just enough detail to draw the viewer further and further in. The light-wrap around the planet is beautifully executed, the atmospherics lend great depth and draw us past the plant and into the dawn of a new day. Also, the lens-flares are spot on and really help to 'take us there'. It's a slight shame about the JPEG posterization in a couple of areas, but that's JPEG's fault, not yours. I imagine the original is breathtaking. All in all, bravo! And thank you for introducing me to Paul's work - his future-Paris stuff blew my mind!
