TerraNova by max4ever TerraNova by max4ever
I started this one as a VUE test. Next thing I know I was caught up in this personal project for 3 weeks :)
The driving force behind this work is the idea that we are not alone in the universe. After all, it would be a terrible waste of space right? So I envisioned the exploring mission of some advanced civilization having first contact with a primitive new world.
I wanted to remove one cliff in the back in order to kill the simetry but I thought it looks cool though.
Render took almost 15 hours at 4000 pixels wide and ultra settings. I painted over in photoshop, keeping the actual VUE shape for a future camera projection.
The spaceship is made in max, with some heavy paintover in PS.
Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it :P

TerraNova by ~max4ever is a fantastic combination of 3d and photoshop work. The realism is draws you in and you can't help but think we are probably not alone. ( Suggested by Baro and Featured by cosmosue )

I'm the kind of guy that switches wallpapers every 2 days. This has been on my desktop for 2 years. Do I need to say more ? :D  Thank you for this amazing piece (and amazing isn't a good enough of a word for this).    :) :)

Fantastic detail. Great clarity over the entire image, especially the lightning and the spaceship. Very dramatic concept.

I love detail and especially tree they are so realistic. I understand that all trees are painted ?.
In that case I want to to ask about brushes :) wchih U have used :)

P.S If U do sky more dark and lighting more contrasted and maybe one more light source, then this artwork could be more climate and tasty for eye :)

I really love the rendered details, especially the lightning and the foliage. The ship itself is cool as well - and the cliffs in the background make viewers think what might be beyond the view here.

I'm digging the fading detail of the foliage. I would have been easy to make it too photo-real even into the distance. Adds a good feeling of perspective. Kudos! :clap:

This is one of the best pieces of art I've ever had the experience of looking at.

The emotions and feelings that this transmits are much more intense than an evening at my local museum, and I live in Rome.
