no comments yet ? this thing is pretty awesome !
i would like it a little more straight forward, meaning a composition that doesn't seem so thrown together, but that's just me ;)

edit : i don't really know why i have that impression, it might be the buildings, weird :shrug:

It looks good. Looking at your wireframe you clearly put a lot of work into the texturing, nice job.

The composition seems a bit cluttered and disorganised but that gives the image a sence of disorder and mayhem, which I am sure is exctly what is going on in that city!

Great Job!

Looking at your wireframes, it is all so easy, but this time it's the idea that counts , doesn't it.

Absolutely like your style, this piece has to be on the front page.

Really cool image. I love the scale of it. The alien ships are so huge. Great work.

thx, yes i admit it's cluttered i did want to make the ship organized but maybe more arrangement in the ship will improve the image comp

He has an aspect impressive, good work. I like a lot particularly the atmosphere that you have given to the scene, the buildings of the city that seem quite authentic.
I don't like ships aliens so much, especially the one that this in first plane, has a seemingly simple texture and a granulated aspect that she doesn't make justice to the rest of the image. As for the ships of the bottom, they don't maybe reflect the depth that they would should, it proves to put a thick fog that alone it affects to the ships, and even make that some this semi-hidden one among some clouds.
Anyway, it is a great image, my congratulation for their work.
I wait not to have bothered you. A greeting.:beer:

Good work. I woudn't make the ships the same. :applause:

I think it looks great. I like how it looks as wire frame too, the composition of the shot looks good to me.

Well done... heavy and simply beautiful... :thumbsup:

This is a very good work.... I like the environment atmosphere and the concept design for the city. You have shown your skill and good taste with colour and light.

Keep on posting your works, please. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Really really nice :thumbsup:

But could you please post the image just before your work in Photoshop plz ( or just a link to it ) :applause:

Awesome, how many time you have been working on it?

The building textures look very good specially the first, you paint it or you take a base from a photograph?.

I donīt like the textures of the alien ships, the industrial aspect does not work.

Very good matte.

The composition works for me. :) Good stuff!

12-23-2003, 05:05 PM
Looks good. I too would like to see the pure 3d render (pre-photoshop).

12-23-2003, 05:17 PM
Very much impressing!! :thumbsup:

12-23-2003, 05:26 PM
good job, and I think a little depth of fade will make it better, specially on the spaceships on the far side...

12-23-2003, 08:04 PM

It's pretty cool...however, there's something i don't really like. Don't know what that really is. Maybe the layout or the shapes or the height of the buildings are somewhat regular. Or maybe the lights from building windows are somewhat of even intensity.

What i really like is the irregular shapes and depth feeling in the far distance.

nice matte painting..!:thumbsup:
