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.
