Default Island Study - 07-13-2010, 06:52 AM

Hi guys!

I am going to show you a tropical island study I did during my free time this winter :) .

The process was simple, I tried to get a realistic looking island without the use of photos. So I used Vue as a base, rendering multiple passes, like clear sand, textured sand, trees, underwater vegetation, corals etc. and then a lot of painting and color correction on top. Photo reference was used only for the sky and distant sea.

Now let's see the images. I am going to show you the image I worked on, some crops I like and then some steps.


Final image





Full working image





Wide crop day







Rough night version for fun






Work in progress




Please tell me what you think about this.

Alex

Thank you guys!

I wouldn't say master :) , but the truth is that I really love to play with Vue renders. I don't like waiting for 24 hours for a perfect render so I prefer doing multiple simple passes and then making everything work together in photoshop.

Thanks! I think I will also write a more detailed making of, where I will also explain what I did at each step and put it on my website. So also keep an eye out for that.

Wow, that's actually some sort of handprint on a sand, that island.
Fantabulous work, it really is! Great idea, great technique, sky, water, that coral reef.
Want a bungalo in there.
