Well, I guess it was inevitable that I would eventually take a shot at the whole 'terraspace' genre. I have already been doing space scenes and 3D modelling, plus I have recently been playing around in Teragen, so I just had to take a shot at combining these elements together. I'm fairly happy with the way this turned out, though I like to think of it as simply the first step in a very exciting journey.
As usual, any advice/tips/suggestions from veterans in any of these fields would be greatly appreciated, as I know I still have much to learn!
Landscape: Terragen. The same terrain as Drowned Kingdom [link]
, but with very different surface mapping/lighting. Star/nebula reflections in the lake were added in Photoshop.
Nebulae/Planets: Photoshop, with a few Apophysis flames to enhance the nebulae. My first attempt at rendering anything with Apophysis, it can have some very pretty results.
Spaceships/station: Modelled and rendered in Cinema 4D. They're fairly low on detail compared to my Wanderer [link]
- but at this scale that shouldn't make much of a difference.
