Artwork Description

This image was my contribution for the Vue Environment Competition 2007 and took around one day to complete from start to finish. It ended up as finalist and then second runner up as one of the three winning images.

I didn't want to make just a plain landscape render, so I came up with this idea of some Alien Pods populating my environment to bring some interest and excitement into the image.

The biggest challenge for me was that the rules in the competition stated that no post work was allowed, which ordinary is a natural part of my pipeline. So this image is straight out of Vue's renderer.

The Pods are modeled in LightWave and then textured and lit in Vue together with all the other Vue assets. This was actually my first image I made with Vue. Pretty amazing software.

"The Aliens are invading our planet" !!!! AHHH!!!I have done commercial art before, but it just takes way too long for me to get it done. I'll just stick with my little color pencils instead-nice job though.

Absolutely lovely ... especially since you didn't do any post work on it.

Wow, this is an amazing environment! The distance is beautiful and I love the pods. Very convincing and creative world you have here!

Art at its best.
