Halcyon Awaits

Originally I wanted to go for a more fantasy like approach and create something with a big fortress. Although you can see parts of the original idea in the setup of the final picture it somewhere along the way took the Scifi route. What we see here is intended to be some kind of holiday resort. A place where people go to have some fun, find peace and enjoy nature a bit. Even though I leave interpreations, about what this place really is, open to the viewer. It’s certainly a nice panorama of nature and technology.

Technically speaking it’s my Vue & Photoshop mixture again. This time though I attacked the creation of mountains with Worldmachine. For the structures I used a bunch of models and reworked them to my needs. Among them a couple of Stonemason objects from These give you a great starting ground for your ideas. I also want to mention *Shue13 who created a model after a concept I did. I used that model for the small flyers, zipping about on the right. I already used that in Foundation - [link] which actually got created after this one here. The bridge objects I mainly created with Vector and the Text Tool in Vue. It may sound strange but hey, it worked. =) It's sort of the poor mans modeling tool. It's limited yes, but gets certaing things done well. Overall the creation process was tedious but fun.

This pic also made it into last year’s E-On Software Environment Competition finals. Even though it did not win anything, I still think that’s a great thing, and worth to mention. =)

Do you make all the buildings yourself outside of Photoshop? If you do, what program do you use?

Wow, I am sincerely impressed. It's scifi but could definitely see that being a part of our future at some point. Gorgeous details.

I really love the aspect of high-tech futurism surrounded by undamaged nature... if we could actually pull that off in the future, I would be so happy :D Because I really want to live in this picture :D

Me too... because I would want to live there as well. *optimism optimism* :D

I was told that I needed to make more comments on people's art work, so I will start with you since you've been on my Watchlist ever since I registered to the site. :) Breathtaking image, it looks like the type of city that you would indeed want to go to! Magnificent work. :wow:
