Here we have another collaboration piece. My second in a short period of time. After not doing collabs for a very very long time. Now I do enjoy the outcome of these projects and may do more in the future.

This time I had the pleasure to work with GTGraphics's very own Tobias Roetsch. He's also a pretty well known Scifi and Fantasy artist that enjoys some vast and grandiose environment vistas. He explained me his idea and I started to do work in Vue to created a serviceable plate. That includes the landscape and the design of the domes. While working in Vue we both talked about how to bring in a good composition. Then I rendered the material in several passes and combined it in Photoshop. After adding some detail, fx and textures I sent the Photoshop file over to Tobias.

Tobias did his magic with adding the city, additional landscape details and a very neat sunset atmosphere. Then it was my turn again with adding some more little details like the ships and some fine tuning. After that... we pretty much had it. I tried to play a little more with the overall colours but always ended up throwing my adjustments away. The atmosphere Tobias created works pretty much perfect.

Vue, Worldmachine, C4D, Photoshop - 6500px wide

I like this, is this supposed to a post-apocalypse polluted by industry forest?
Kinda reminds me of Farcry blood dragons environment, its dark with neon lights everywhere

Yep... you read the pic exactly the way it's intended. :) The domes are kinda the last bastions preserving the last bits of nature in this place.

Very cool work! The domes with their lighting are eyecatchers :) Sunset looks great, are the clouds handpainted or based on real photos?
I just started to "enhance" some of my works with a little bit of painting over the Vue render, like I did with my last work, but a looooong way to go for me :)

That sky part wasn't done by me so... all I can say is that it's definitely a photo with overpaintrd areas I guess. And yeah, I noticed you trying. Keep it up! Vue is pretty much the perfect plate creation tool. =) And with Vue you are a master already. =)

Love the work, it's got a nice atmosphere coupled with good props. Very alien-ish.
