Tenta-pools by priteeboy Tenta-pools by priteeboy
This was my entry to the e-on software's Vue environment competition for this year, sadly I didn't even make it to the finals, rendering the 50+ hours I spent on this utterly useless, only to be beaten by some of the most mundayne and generic-looking Vue scenes I've seen an dthat I could have made in an afternoon using little mor ethan what the program provides you with. So much for originality in a landscape being taken into account, there's only a few finalists that I felt deserved to be there :judge:

Anyway, the original entry had no postwork (since it wasn't allowed) but this dA version here did have a little bit of it just to fix up some areas and make it look a little more natural, but nothing that I couldn't do in a single session. The actual 3D part is what took forever, modelling those weird alien plants in Cinema 4D was a pain, so was finding a creative way to make the surrounding landscape. Even the planets are pure 3D models, scaled up huge and pushed way beyond Vue's world limits, all materials are procedural too (but afte rthe final render I did overlay some faint rock texture on the rocky cliffs)

My comment here has just focused on the process of making it this time, there's surprisingly little to say about the concept itself, jut another one of my weird alien landscapes :alien:

I know the feeling this picture should have made first place but the judges were probably looking for people in the render and their imagination is only to A small plane of reality so DO NOT LET THEM  GET TO YOU I mean look at my page just like you I pushed bryce 7 pro and 6 to its material limits. So if you have chance check out my page I can always use your critiques.

Now that it's long-passed I'm over it. Especially when I realized that they like to promote realism above all (since that's what they market themselves as being able to do) and the winners, while pretty boring subject-wise, were at least realistic I guess. Still, there is definitely a neglect for those in the sci-fi galleries :

OK, I'll critique 'cause I'm feeling generous ;p

It is Their loss. It seems that Substance is losing ground more each day, everyone is going for that instant flash and wow. Its over so fast and no one really thinks at what they are looking at. Sad to say the least.

I guess technical mastery was their main criteria, since they're a software company after all and they want to promote how realistic their products can render an image (fooling newcomers into believing they can create photo-real images the same week they get it...they're in for a surprise ;p) But still, while the winners were technically great, subject-wise they were pretty ordinary :judge:

As far as I'm concerned you Did master it, what more could they want? I just don't see their criteria being viable, you did the work and it came out as it should have.

This looks amazing. Were you inspired by Titan (Saturn's largest moon) when making this? The dense atmosphere, flooded surface, and Saturn in the background make me think of Titan.

Not in this case. Sometimes my planets are inspired by ones in our Solar System, but I think this one is a too far stretch from Titan (looks too warm and sunny) plus Titan is more orange in colour I would imagine :orange:

Who knows - in the distant future when the sun becomes a red giant it might warm Titan up enough for such a scenario to exist. As long as it still has all that atmosphere :nod:

What would happen if I touched one of those anemone-plant things? Would it hurt?
