The Passage by Dave-DK The Passage by Dave-DK
The Passage

This is the kind of image that drew me into 3D. I'm still chasing my dreams :)

I spent 5 weeks on this image, step by step mostly building procedural functions to create the terrains, adding several iterations to achieve a complex terrain which looked natural.
I really liked the outcome :)

I live in the desert SW of the US and this looks real enough to me!
We're just missing the advanced Civilization, hahaha.
Congratulations on all the hard work, 'cause this freakin ROCKS!
Pun intended.
Have Fun!

I think it's important for artists to remind themselves what inspired them to take on a certain media or genre, as you implied in the comment here :nod: Stuff like this is always cool, the "looks like a movie still yet still stands as its own artwork" is perfect for 3D art :D Great landscape, and I like those buildings and ships too, always good to see a Vue scene become more than just a terrain and atmosphere test like we all do and see something cool made from all that technical exploration :D

That's exactly the point that I was thinking... I took my time for this one, and because of the things that originally inspired me, it grew day by day..., becoming more than the 1001th experimental scene on my HD..
Because it's a topic I love, It was worth working on it everyday to get it better!

Amazing stuff, Davy! Dax would be proud of this! :D

Only critique I can think of is ship's placement. I personally would have placed 'em in the right half, against the darker tone of rock. Right now, 2 of 'em are getting lost in the bg, coz that structure's tone almost matches the ships! :)

Lol... epic fail..
I already uploaded the changed version (though I'm still revisiting the scene)
Made several changes:
-Removed the waterfall
-Removed the dust on the spaceships, made them a bit sharper to bring them out more
-Made the sky more glowy white
-Softened the Dof and removed the dust :)

Hmm.. should've kept the waterfall, it was nice touch & quite well done IMO ;)
Ships do have bit more visibility but placement wise still could be better.. b'coz right now all your eye-catching stuff is in left side only.. the ships, that structure, water.. so overall it feels lil' unbalanced.. :)

Dave-DK Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
V.. You're a genius :)
It was Dax who convince me to remove the fall...
I also liked it but also seemed a bit unnatural in its place...

Thank you so much Vish! I certainly hope so...

You're right on the ship placement, and I think I even over-duster/glowed them... they were clearer before..
