My first Avatar-inspired deviation! :la: yeah, only took like - a year and a half, but the timing seemed right and hopefully this turned out to be what is arguably one the the coolest pieces inspired by that movie anyone will ever see :bow:

:bulletred: Scroll down to zoom in
:bulletyellow: Scroll up to zoom out.
:bulletgreen: Or use Shift or Control keys to do either.
:bulletblue: Click and drag to look around.

I could have gone for a ground view showing one of the many epic landscapes. But that can always be done later. I don't see much of the space scene seen very early on in the film, so that combined with the fact I promised many people my next 360 "Vue It" work was going to be a space one just meant it was the right theme to choose. It was at least lighter in polygon count than my first two that were very "tree-heavy" bumping their polygon counts into the several millions which resulted in countless crashes. Still had a fair amount with this but comparatively not as bad so bouts of swearing while making this was minimal ;)

As for technical aspects, this was testing a version of Vue that can't actually render planets to its limits, that along with clever use of postwork allowed me to simulate a pretty authentic looking world below the viewer anyway. Rendering would have taken eons for me and so I got help, so I'll jump to credits for help before continuing:
:la: SOULSSHINE Did the rendering after I made the scene, took WAY too long on my comp.
:la: Smattila exported it into this Flash format after I had completed all the artwork.
Anyway, this required constant hopping between Vue 7 and Photoshop as some areas needed to be painted on and then brought back into the 3D world again to be rendered with the right amount of distortion and then composed in Photoshop again etc. I won't ramble on, Ill just say it was as hard to do as it looks, so just enjoy it! :lol:

:bulletpurple: Others in the "Vue It" series:
Vue it - Pine Shrine
Vue it - Christmas Village
Vue It - Holiday House
Vue It - Haunted Harvest

Hmm, sorry, but $20 is how much I'd charge per hour if I don't want the project to cost more than I make. An average artwork for me rarely takes less than 10 hours to do. 20 bucks just ain't gonna cut it ;)

That's better, but if the scene is very complex (lots of buildings, people, etc) it may still not be enough.

One dollar doesn't buy you nearly as much in Australia as it does in the US. I live in one of the most expensive places in the entire world, hence why I can't afford to go as low with my prices as many other artists from other countries can. If an $80 artwork takes me more than just a day to do, I'd still be losing money as that doesn't even cover my daily living expenses :(

Wooow this is absolutely outstanding! There's so much to look at and it's so vibrant and full of detail too. I don't think I have ever been stuck so much looking at a single piece of artwork, I think I've spent an entire hour getting lost in it, and that must be nothing next to the amount of time you've spent working on it. Your work deserves all the praise it gets :)

It's good to hear something I did can hold someone for that long. You might like some of the others in this series too but I'll admit this one is one of my personal favourites (probably because of how hard it was to try and pull that nearest planet off successfully :phew:)

Hogwarts :O But I ain't no Harry Potter fan (but if it promises me wizard powers then I'd go in a heartbeat)

These are largely modelled in one of my 3D softwares that I use. It's more time-consuming than just drawing a normal image since rather than just illustrating what I can see, I have to also be creating stuff that doesn't even show up in the final thing, not to mention constantly changing my viewing angle to make sure I get everything composed right, since even I can't view it all at once (except when I used an overhead view, but that says little about how it looks from ground level). It's quite hard to explain really, and not much easier to create - hence why I only do these rarely.

Well I can't think of anyone but you that can create something so spectacular so you must some secret superpower or something. 

And I'm guessing that 3D software cost money. Well guess I'll have to draw my maps the old fashion way.
