2BIG3k - A New Beginning

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and this is my first participation in a matte challenge.


My intention is to depict a world, where no human has survived. No people being left nature can thrive without constraints and thereby slowly repossesses every place that humans claimed earlier - the world is becoming healthy.

I'm planning to add more plants and animals like ants and stuff.

Any comments are welcome.

Hello and welcome to the forums.
Really nice start. I love the angle of your composition and perspective. And the 'smoothness' of the entire thing is amazing.
Keep up the awesome work.

Cheers

Thank you guys for the feedback.

I quickly made a few compositional changes. Next I'll do some 3d work for the foreground.

a world without humans is in a sense truly a kind of paradise

I stitched together some rough not-antialiased renders and did some rough overpainting and color corrections to set the mood. The 3d renderings for mid- and backround will be quite simple and will require a great deal of paint work.... looking forward for that.

3D work for the foreground is now finished. First picture shows the rendered image that I created using Cinema 4D.

Second picture shows my current PS composition with the mid- and background still being a rough rendering.

A lot of tweaking and overpainting will follow.

Cheers,

Marc

nice render man! i think you could make it a little bit brighter (just a little) in your painting so we can see more of the cool details. how did you do the plants in c4d they look very good. also it might be cool to have some old furniture in there like a desk with a broken computer, just an idea. good work!

Thanks guys

I think I will brighten up the left side of the foreground but keep the right side quite dark, since i like the contrast of the sillouhette against the bright sky there. The for the ivy i used a combination of mograph and ivygenerator, and for the fern I mapped a manipulated texture on displaced and bent planes.

Cheers,

Marc
