From Here I Can Almost See The Stars by tigaer From Here I Can Almost See The Stars by tigaer
For a long time now I have a certain image in my head that I still/yet have to make. The picture we have here brought me a little closer to the image I have in my head. The pic I have in mind is something with a giant huge space port/dock structure. And yes, other artists already have made very awesome attempts on that. But hey, I want my own super cool space port! =D

What we have here is indeed a cool space port kind of thing and I really honestly like the result of my attempt here. I really had some fun playing with the colours. I wanted to go for colours I rarely used so far. So this pic will make a nice addition to my portfolio. Iím still undecided if we have a morning or evening scene in this pic. Thatís what I leave to the viewers. Yes the scene is artistically nothing entirely new but I think it just looks sort of soothing.

Technically itís heavy Vue work again. It started, like so often, playing around with objects and atmospheres. Originally I was thinking about creating a space scene. Then I had this great atmosphere that reacted so nicely with my objects that I couldnít resist to make it another Scifi cityscape. The rendering happened in various steps again. First the city. Then the clouds. And last but not least the flying little ships. Throughout the Photoshop phase I continued rendering out smaller parts to replace some others I wasnít to happy with. I still love the Multipass options in Vue. This makes it rather easy to exchange elements.

In Photoshop then happened the compositing of all the different elements Vue gave me with itís renders. A lot of fixing, texturing and overpainting happened in the next stage. The atmosphere got some pushes too. The final result then really became a moody Scifi scene that allows the viewer to dive into.

This picture is also part of The Luminariumís 17th artpack release ĎIlluminate IVí. Some pretty amazing and inspiring work there. Info can be found here: [link]

I really had some fun with this one and hope you people dig the view as much as I do!

Which part of it is belong to Vue? Terrain is what Vue good at, is these all of the building was done by Vue? I think this maybe is painted in Photoshop.

I don't really know how to put this but this is exactly what I "was looking for". Not intentionally of course but I'm really glad I found it. Amazing how you applied your thought to this master piece! Great work!!

This has been in my favorites for some time - I just wanted to let you know I credited this with a link-back as partial inspiration for my description of an alien city in my Mass Effect fanfic, here: [link]
