Inflatable landscape by priteeboy Inflatable landscape by priteeboy
Imagine a surreal world where everything is like rubber, where you could run full speed into a "tree" only to have it bend on impact and throw you back only to land on a soft-padded ground :boogie: Sounds like the fantasy of a 5-year old, but who can't say they'll enjoy it? :D

I originally made this scene several months ago, but it became a rare case where I didn't bother to render it and upload here, and it probably would have stayed on my PC gathering dust if the ~3dartistclub didn't hold a contest themed "colourful"...just a small contest, but the perfect excuse for me to post this anyway :D

This may be the weirdest Vue scene you'll ever see, I deliberately threw realism out the door and wanted to create something unusual and "fun"...though modelling some of those elaborate intertwining structures in the back was a bit of a pain at the time, but playing with various blobby shapes that made and imported to Vue and giving them brightly coloured materials was fun, you can vaguely see a "landscape" like picture here, and since I was reminded of balloons, well that's the origin of the title :airborne:
The only postwork was turning the sky green near the top (was plain orange before) everything else is pure 3D :nod:

P.S - it makes a cool wallpaper, but I'm afraid this is the biggest size I'm willing to make public, enjoy anyway :)

Edit: Changed the planets from "realistic" ones to swirly bouncy ball-like ones, I think they're more appropriate ;)

He always created some of the coolest-looking landscapes :D
Looks like a scene from a video game.

Probably one of those cool, unique looking games though rather than a realistic one :XD:

Can I use this as my wallpaper? :3

Wallpaper use is OK :)
Ooh, shiny!
This almost reminds me of something from one of my favorite books from when I was little!

Sounds like the kind of book I would have loved too if it had stuff like this in it :dummy:
Nova's Ark, I believe it was called.
It was for really little kids, though...
But this kinda reminds me of something from that.
