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.

wow, so how much of that detail is photoshop brushed and how much of it was matte painting with photos?

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.

Great work as usual. I've really wanted to test view but I haven't had a lot of time with school lately. And unfortunately I'm not going to school for art :(

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!
