This picture started as a project for a movie. They had some scenes on Mars and approached me if I would be interested in trying myself on it. I did some concept work and was playing around with a Marsbase kind of idea. I sent them my ideas and they promised to come back to me on how to go on with it. Well, that was 1 1/2 years ago. Nothing happened. Not a single word. So I decided to not write off the extensive work time I already spent on the project and finished the pic myself as a personal project. The guys I wrote with obviously have no interest anymore. And if so... too late. I finished it up right in time for the Mars hype that's going on right now! =D Flowing water on Mars. That's amazing news and opens up great opportunities.

Technically I started this one with Worldmachine and trying to create a landscape that sorta kinda could serve as a Mars landscape. I'm sure it's not 100% realistic (if at all...) but I managed to get some nice variation into the terrain that works well enough for the eye. I combined various terrains with Photoshop and imported them into Vue. Adding the base was a difficult task. I had to work the terrain quite a bit to make it fit the parts where I wanted to place the structures. I'm not entirely happy with how it turned out... but it's good enough for me to work. Sometimes you have to make a cut and stop working on something. To make it even more unrealistic I played with the idea of some local terraforming around the base.

Overall it's one of my more realistic 'looking' pieces. At least when it comes to the visual feel and photographic presentation. Hope you enjoy the view and who knows... maybe the pic is at least a tiny glimpse at how our future on Mars could look like.

More realistic than some of your more spectacular scifi city pieces.  But very good. :)

Love your scifi scenes, man! :) Is this based on any actual Mars terrain, or is it just from your imagination?

No it's not based on actual mars terrain. I just built a terrain and tried to make it as orange as possible. :)

Yup. An dem blauton hab ich ne weile gefeilt. Es ist zwar nur ein kleiner bereich im bild... aber definiert dann doch den kompletten eindruck. :) Freut mich das es geklappt hat. :D Danke :bow:

Don't you just love clients that never respond back :happycry: At least your wasted hours could at least be turned into something useful here, the ones I've had didn't really show potential to evolve into a project on my own. Still, being approach for movie grade stuff is an honour in itself, as realism standards are high.

Well, it was a kickstarter movie. No big budget thing. But it had some neat, familiar names (in the scifi genre) attached. So... too bad. I also have to admit that I did not check into whether that movie project is still kicking or not. I don't care. No contracts were signed and they didn't plan to pay anything anyway. So... I think I salvaged this pic alright. =) I managed to gather some movie work experience with a shortfilm instead. At least something. Thanks man. :)

Ah, I tend to avoid kickstarter stuff, especially non-paying jobs. I have so little time to work on my own projects anymore that any art-time I spend not doing traditional commissions is going towards my own stuff =p

Looks like a great concept! I agree that like you say, it may not be 100% accurate to how the terrain should look but I knew it was Mars just from the thumbnail. :)
