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!

…Why is this, a picture with no people in it whatsoever, the first result for the tag "#sexy"?

This is pretty rad, dude. I like how much attention you paid to even the skyscrapers in the background/top of the screen. If you were to ask me, I think it's a morning scene; sun just rising over the horizon through some dense haze, gleaming brightly off the tops of some of the taller skyscrapers... yee. Great sense of grandiose scale and honestly, a place I wouldn't mind living in. Let's hope humans can last long enough to create mega-marvels like this in actuality.

I love the more imaginative and awe inspiring scifie panoramas, specially thos of citys. Like that heist mission in Mass Effect 2, when i do it i spend a lot of time just looking at the vista of the distant city that you get on the balcony of the mansion.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only 
looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called 
Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, 
because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill 
all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best 
idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as
humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went 
wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every 
week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this 
letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and 
kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now 
send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt 
someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and 
paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the 
best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, 
if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Gardens / botanical labs in the towers?  Parks out on a couple of the wings?  A system like the replicators that turns other matter into desired substance, waste to oxygen?

Why doesn't Urban Arcana / d20 future have a create oxygen spell?  it seems to me that... (wanders of on tangent, vanishes into the night mumbling to himself)

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.

Sorry for the uberlate reply. The scene was created in Vue by using different models of scifi buildings, all mashed together. Vue's Ecosystem tool helped to create a neat cityscape. The final scene file was very heavy in the end though. Something around 2gb in the end if I remember correctly. Check here for the creation process  projects.tigaer-design.com/fhi… - Photoshop of course played a big role in finalizing the scene.

Good morrow Chris. Are you working on VFX design for movies or something? You have a great talent and I think VFX movies need more artists like you. ;) I am VFX designer and I am starting with my Deviantart portfolio and it would be a pleasure to add you as friend!
