My Bio

3D Art is my hobby. I started with Poser in 2004. I muddled with it and Bryce, Carrara, Poser and Vue for a while, but now I have settled mostly on DAZ Studio, and Blender as my primary tools. I like all kinds of images depending on my mood. I do a lot of SciFi, Fantasy, the occasional character portrait and landscapes.


Happy Rendering!

Thank you! I really appreciate that you took the time to provide feedback. I totally agree on the piles, they need more work. I am currently experimenting with different displacement and additional ecosystems...

Regarding the hovering trucks, I am not surprised that you missed them, they are quite small and yellow. You probably need to download the full size to spot them. There are two to the left of the top of the pile and one to the right. This is the reason I want to add the falling debris to make them easier to spot. I made some nice ecosystems that I can apply to an invisible cylinder to achieve the effect. If it looks good I 'll post an update...

All good points! Thank you! I am contemplating a version 2.0 of this image and will definitely take this into account.

Town by the Sea
Thanks Adam! I very much appreciate the input and I believe it helped to improve the next version which is rendering right now.

You are definitely right regarding the lighting. I couldn't really decide which way to go and it ended up being a weird mix. It was just a basic volumetric atmosphere with a high sun, no clouds, and greenish blue fog. The initial renders were way too dark in the foreground due to the shadows and so I added a point light behind and to the left of the camera. That's the reason for the funky shadows...

Anyway in version 2.0 I committed to a moon lit night setup. Based on the test redners it looked mu better (I also changed the ecosystems).

Thanks again for your input! :thanks:
I will definitely return the favor :evillaugh:
