I decided to adjust the composition a bit from the concept but here is the progression.

Here is one of the displacement textures used on the rocky surfaces.

The key light in this scene will be far off and quite stark due to its intensity and lack of atmospheric interference. There will also be light eminating from the gaseous clouds around the rocky structures.

I have received a great deal of inspiration throughout this challenge and it is starting to come together. Plugging in the atmospheric effects.

Working on bringing in contrast in the areas of size, distance, color, and motion. Need the right balance.

-Eska, that is totally crazy! I was looking through the submissions yesterday and when I saw yours I thought "That is totally awesome". I loved how your image gives the sense of an expansive landscape, and the detail is just killer!:buttrock:

Hi dear QUINN!
I think that perfectly you know the science of graphic and composition and realy color knowledge.

Your work realy bringes a dozens of love to me about max.

Anything that i should say is this:

Certainly your colors play my mind.A world of dreamy colors that if us abstract it only to alone colors,it could be a world of aliens.

Realy thanks for your nice words.I think that your work is more better than mine.mine has no special technique,some playing with colors and simple tools.It`s proud me watching your work.
I`m in Iran and you are so far from me but Minute by minute i find new and good friends that`s more important for me further an award.

Again thanks for your interests and best of lucks to you dear Quinn.

See you at high levels my talented friend.:wavey:
