The Expedition by tigaer The Expedition by tigaer
Vue is your friend! When you’re not exactly the most talented painter then Vue really helps you to create a base for your idea. The weird rock formations/mountains were quickly modelled in C4d and imported to Vue. Ecosystems added a plantlife quickly and kaboom… it’s rendered. Then the fun can happen in Photoshop. This painting is, again, some sort of training piece. Basically i wanted to create a strangely familiar, yet exotic, looking place. It’s also a different colorpalette. Surely a nice addition to my portfolio. When you check the plate (link beneath the description) you will notice how much work was done in Photoshop. Basically i used digital painting to extend different elements and got me some good photo textures to add the level of detail i wanted. The ships were added late in the process and are completely painting. Now i would love to explore this planet with one of those ships!

Hope you enjoy this world as much as i do!

As always... fullview recommended.

you can also create terrains in vue. there is no need to use a third party app. tons of brushes out there aswell to make it easier.

I didn't really understand the process part in the comments because I'm not a digital artist, but damn, it worked. This looks like almost some brilliant matte painted environment and I like the way the ships are thrown in to give it that sci fi feel.

I remember when you were drawing those ships by themselves and I am very glad to see them making it into your more complete works now!

the ships are a nice addition to add a sense of scale to these paintings. while i think it all still looks a bit flat... the ships help to add that little extra bit that the pic needs. :) glad you like it sir. :) appreciated.

Keep it up though. I always enjoy looking at what you have to dish up. :+faV:

yeah, vue is great in combination with modeling programs.
I use it to spice up my school assignments, make the models in 3dsmax, render them in vue with sexy atmospheres and lighting :p

Anyway, great way of combining your tools!

I totally agree with your statement...well, I'm actually fairly confident with my ability to paint scenery, but I'm slow - and in the case of jobs or commissions (like one I'm in right now that needs many good scenes doone fast!) then Vue is totally worth it's weight in gold, it's a life-saver indeed for those who want speed :sprint:

C'est très bien Tigaer..... je pense que vous êtes un des meilleurs artiste digital en ''concept art'' que j'ai vu. C'est sure que Andre Wallin est bon aussi mais vous êtes vraiment très doué et j'aimerais bien que vous fesiez un DVD de tutoriels.

Sehr schöne Arbeit. :+fav:

Außerdem beeindruckend, wie Du den Prozess der Entstehung des Bildes beschreibst und mit dem Plate dokumentierst. Was zu meckern hab ich diesmal trotzdem ;) : das zweite Schiff ist hier kaum zu erkennen, auf der Wallpaper mit der höheren Auflösung gerade so. Ist vielleicht auch so gewollt, daß es sich nicht so deutlich abzeichnet wie das im Vordergrund, plausibel ist, daß es etwas im Dunst verwischt, richtig?

ja es ist schon so integriert das es mit dem umgebungslicht im dunst ein wenig an sättigung und kontrast verliert. damit die tiefenwirkung n bisl besser rüberkommt. :) richtig erkannt mein herr. :nod:
