D³SCR!PTION

elysia is one of the planets everyone knows when you're talking about it. there's no person that has not seen one of the amazing sunsets, at least on a photo. the "paradise of the universe" was it called once in a news article. people living and working there mostly to serve the tourists. you can do everything there! enjoy the forests. enjoy mountain climbing. take a trip down the golden rivers that swirl over the planets surface like veins of blood. i wished i could visit this place for only one time. but all i have is a photo... and my wish.

TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

once again is tried some matte painting techniques for this piece. i worked with a lot of photography to texture the elements in my terragen render. my goal is always to let it look like it's not done with help of terragen. i guess i got that pretty good in this piece. the big building in front was completely painted. with help of a few manip techniques. i thank god for my wacom. to create such stuff with mouse would take ages. generally i always tried to keep an eye on the overall composition. i had talks with friends about what else i could add. there even was a flyer for the right side in planning. i decided against is because of the huge cloud front that is balancing the pic good enough. a flyer would have distracted from the general composition.

digital painting, wacom, photoshop, 30hrs, 5000px wide, 250mb psd

Absolutely amazing! I love the detail and atmosphere.

One thing caught my eye though, and now I can't let go of it: In two places the river seems to run in a vertical bend OVER a hill rather than in a horizontal bend AROUND the hill. Not sure why.... could be my imagination - Just to the left of the y-fork in the center of the picture and also where it emerges to the right from behind some bushes/trees just below the sun.

incredible...might I ask who makes your terragens? I really want to ask them for tips because they are simply amazing and I could improve my work in Terragen. And if you are the one who does it in terragen please any pointers would be extremely helpful
-Thanks

Wow - I know you have an extraterrestrial place in mind, another planet, but I can well picture the Elysian fields looking a bit like that. At least a steam punk take on it.
