My Kingdom Awakes by tigaer My Kingdom Awakes by tigaer
This project was a lot of fun. Partly because it ended a personal creative blockade after the finish of my 'Phoenix Rising' project. Again i was playing with Vue and certain lighting settings. I think i found a good base for future projects now. Rendertimes went skyhigh though. However the image quality certainly speaks for itself. My goal here was to setup (or find a way) to light the scene as realistic as possible. That succeeded and after tons of hours for the render to finish... i eventually had a great plate to play with in Photoshop.

The final result is 65% Vue and everything else Photoshop. Of course i added quite some extra textures to get in the needed details. As well as extra painting in areas that did not turn out too good. The overall Photoshop postwork was done fairly fast. So i'm really happy with the outcome.

Vue - Photoshop - Wacom - 30hrs Render - 10hrs Postwork - 4500px wide

Holy moley - this looks like something strait from the Narnia movies!

Fantastic!

I've been looking at some of your pictures, and they're inspiring ideas for the setting of a story I'm writing (not that I'm stealing the art - they're just giving me ideas :D). Thanks for the visual feast!

Amazing, the lighting is the sort of thing that if I were passing I would have to take out my camera and get a shot of, it really does look that realistic.

Nice, I kinda agree. It also made me think of the Kingdom of Ascalon, pre-Searing, from the original "Guild Wars."
