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I originally made this scene several months ago, but it became a rare case where I didn't bother to render it and upload here, and it probably would have stayed on my PC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 ;)

Love the bulbosity of the plants...can imagine them swaying in the breeze!

If a tree got uprooted, would it float away?

Hmm, depends on what it's filled with. According to the classic TV trope which explains the common rule of All balloons have helium - then regardless of what's in them, they'll float anyway :XD:

Better not be holding onto the tree when you cut it 'down' then. :-)

Nova's Ark, I believe it was called.
It was for really little kids, though...
But this kinda reminds me of something from that.

I used Cinema 4D to make all the "blobs" and I brought them into Vue (another 3d program) where I could create those cool shiny textures for them and be able to replicate them quickly for the background (it has a feature that lets you scatter your 3D objects all over any given surface quickly, so I could fill that distant blob-forest rather quickly :phew:)

OH MY GOODNESS I was trying to clear my thousands of deviations and found this!! :giggle: Forgive me, O master, for my ultra late comment ^^;
(of course, I always make the effort to comment on this pretty boy's works like he does to mine xD)

OH MY GOODNESS (again) I wanna pluck those thingies off the comp screen and squeeze them!! haha... they really look like the sort of rubber/plastic figurines in designer toy shops that attracts idiots like me who just love weird things xD :love:

Lol, I don't think the deviations in my messages ever exceeded 400 - and that was after being away for 2 weeks, even then I only commented the better ones or from ones from artists that tend to appreciate comments more to save time :work:

You and me both are attracted to cheap plastic merchandise :XD: - luckily there's no such stores where I live so my money remains un-wasted :lol:

Aww so I'm one of those "artists that tend to appreciate comments more to save time" haha :D Actually true, I put more effort into commenting on an artist's work when I know that person will appreciate it ^^

aaaaack.. haha, I waste too much money! *eats grass* Nah actually I don't spend on toys lol. Everything I get always has a purpose! They...have a meaning in life! hahaha

My inspiration was generally those occasional 3D abstracts I see that look really cool, I'm a fan of smooth organic shapes but thos abstracts are often jagged and metallic-looking, things like this are an incredibly rare find around here :iconsadtruthplz:
