Taking the best of both my previous birthday submissions, the sunset theme of Planetary Paradise
and the realistic Vue influence of Forever and a Cay
this here is yet another July 14th submission to commemorate my third birthday on DA, and my 20th in total. Of course, it's another tropical scenery with some cosmic elements visible in the sky...the place I'd love to be
The idea on this one was a little forced, I didn't come up with it as quickly as all the others and so I spent nearly a week making draft scenes in Vue until I got something that was far from my intention, but worked out better anyway, and so, I just continued working nearly a week on that.
The final 3D scene was rendered at 5400x2298 and took nearly 30 hours to do so, and two thirds of that time was on the water alone ( Vue slows a lot on water ) And the planets were postworked in, along with some minor improvements the the 3D aspects of the art...May not be my best, but special to me
Made mostly in Vue 6 and some Photoshop.
Oh, and it's also for
's competition too...Which I later won
