How could a city look like in 500 years from now?

This one resulted from a commission that did not work out as expected. I didn't want to scrap the picture i did and wanted to use it for a personal project. I decided to create a panorama from it. Which wasn't an easy task since the original format was portrait, intended for a book.

Technically i took the vue base file and heavily extended it to the left. The Vue file had a few hundred mb in the end. I also did tons of testrenders for it. Even full size and full quality. So there are surely 40hrs work in the setup of the scene alone. 8hrs actual work and the rest render time. 8000px wide can take a while to finish.

Then, of course, i took it into Photoshop. It was never an intention to work photorealistic. So what i did was to get me textures and slam them across the picture. That's the fun part. the work part was it then to manipulate and adjust these textures to make them fit. Vue's multipass rendering also allowed me to add new elements to the pic. Even if i already was completely in the Photoshopping stage. Quite some elements on the left side of the pic got added rather late in the making process. Again a lot of work that i had to do because i wasn't entirely happy with certain parts. And there goes the time.

8700px wide - Photoshop - Vue - Intuos3

It's a great wallpaper, but personally I don't like the blurring/lens flare.

Faszinierend.
Du gehst wirklich davon aus, dass wir Primaten es noch 500 Jahre machen? Das finde ich doch recht...unwahrscheinlich.

Wie dem auch sei. Ich finde das Bild super. Ist das in der Mitte ein Grünstreifen?

Einen :+fav: für dich.

Schönes Leben noch!

The detail is unbelievable- all the girders and windows and lights. Took me a couple looks to notice the ships, but I like that touch.

And to top it all off, those epic sun rays! Stuff like this is why I :+devwatch: you!

PS: You work with EIGHT THOUSAND PIXELS?! :omg: I'm overwhelmed by 1024 from time to time...

glad you like it. thanks. :) well the 8000px size here is an exception. normally my minimum is 3000px wide... standard is 4000 - 5000px. and that mainly because i want all my work in a good print quality.

Still incredible numbers. Even with my second screen holding all the tools, I get overwhelmed when working on stuff bigger than my screen resolution (1024x768).

I suppose if I had a bigger art pad it'd be less daunting, but I can't afford to upgrade my antique Wacom yet. :|

4"x5" Wacom ArtPad II here, from the days of the serial port. It's actually a nice pad, and the pen is good too, but I wouldn't mind something bigger that I could use a real pencil with.
