D³SCR!PTION

One of mankinds colonies on a distant planet in a future not too far away. The organisation chose this planet because of the friendly environment. Forests, fresh and clean air... paradise. The people that decided to live there spend their time to investigate the planet. Flora and fauna. How does the eco-system work. What minerals does the planet offer. The colony is growing fast and soon needs to expand into other regions of that planet. Be sure to save your ticket soon... ;p there are not many places left.

Check out my scenery gallery on tigaer-design.com!!! You'll find the following wp sizes there:
800x600
1024x768
1600x1200
zip file ca 4mb (different designs in var. resolutions)

...check the 'art galleries/scenery' and scroll down to the bottom.

TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

Basically i used matte painting techniques i learned from the gnomon workshop dvds. I managed to create this piece in merely two weeks in print quality. So i'm quite happy with the efficiency this time. Techniques i used range from photo manipulation to painting and 3d rendering. 3d rendering because the base landscape to that pic was made in terragen.

created with a wacom intuos3.

It looks beautiful. I'll just throw the basics into a rucksack and hop on the next ship to this unnamed planet.

Hello! Very nice landscape ^^

I was wondering could I use your picture to mix one of my ships in to it?
The job would be purely for my own pleasure/3D-studying and not commercial. I would also post it in DA with link to your page ofc.

I may have seen better matte paintings and renders than this, but yours excels because it goes beyond the usual "sunset lit futuristic cityscape". It's beautiful and it has a very peaceful feel to it. *+fav*

Ich muss ja sagen, als ich das Bild in klein gesehen habe war ich etwas skeptisch dem ganzen gegenüber, aber ich wurde eines besseren belehrt undzwar komplett... mich hätte es ja fast aus dem Stuhl gerissen, als ich die Gebäude angeschaut habe dachte ich nur ob du da nicht mit Fotos geschummelt hast ;) ^^
Sah und sieht natürlich immernoch einfach nur klasse aus, vorallem wenn man soetwas garnicht erwartet. Das linke der beiden Gebäude ist übrigens sehr realistisch wie ich finde. :) :)
Mein erster Gedanke, nachdem ich mich wieder gefasst hatte^^, war übrigens der, das das Bild irgendwie etwas von ner Lotr Landschaft hat. Ob wir wohl in Filmen demnächst mal eines deiner Werke bewundern können? :)
Wenn du so weitermachst würde es auf jedenfall von der qualität her passen. :)

Is there a way that you can get the perspective information from terragen to draw perspective lines in Photoshop? Or do you just place the horizonline approximately in the right position?
Reply
:icontigaer:
tigaer Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
you have to find the right view yourself. you can use the horizon as the reference and draw the lines from there.

Meine Güte, hat's hier Details drin, ich seh immer wieder was Neues...die Straßen da unten zum Beispiel, oder der Wasserfall....und was ich auch super finde (neben dem ganzen Bild, versteht sich) ist daß sich der Himmel in den Fensterscheiben spiegelt.
Suuuuper Arbeit!!

specialization is the key. i love to do those landscapes and invested a lot of time to be able create these 'worlds'. there's not really a tutorial... you have to develop an own kind of feel for it.

buildings blend in great with the landscape, and the dig. painting in the sky blends nicely too. Ends up looking like it could be all painted, using selective detail, so you can only see the brush strokes in the places you don't want us to focus on. Great blending of styles here, along with the usual attn to colors and lighting.
