This is a test render of the vehicle shown in "The Coming Storm" [link]

It's an unfinished scene, nothing too amazing - but the vehicle is a bit easier to see without the blowing snow added in the finished painting :)

At this stage, the vehicle was nearly complete, but still had some "temp" textures and materials. The setting also changed quite a bit - at this point, the vehicle was parked on a large landing platform situated on top of a tall industrial structure - similar to an offshore oil platform.

The vehicle and platform were modeled and rendered in Lightwave 3D, with a mix of procedural textures and image maps painted in Photoshop. The suited figures were from a separate render test, and were pasted in to previsualize how the figures would look next to the vehicle ;)

Looks damn awesome. all the colors, design, composition.. super.
how did you achieve such blurry/paintery/soft render effect?

Thanks :D
The soft look is from a little bit of Photoshop tweaking. I always feel like the straight rendered image is just a little bit too crisp, so I do a little bit of retouching to soften the edges and adjust the contrast. It looks very similar, but feels more natural I think.

The impression is that it would be very articulate and could change it’s silhouette quite a bit, and there’s a lot of hydraulics under the various sections. Looks like it could have came from the same factory that produces military ‘Mechs’. ; )

Yes indeed - this vehicle can change its shape quite a bit :)
There's definitely a "mech" flavor to it as well - I started out aiming for a construction vehicle style, but by the end it had taken on much more of a sci-fi mech appearance :D
