Title: air battle
Name: Gunaars Miezis
Country: Latvia
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

hi, this time the action takes place on distant planet with daring maneuvers in spectacular air battles. Actually it\s pretty hard for me to decide witch category to choose 3d or 2d. this is a 3d mate if I may say. The ships are 3d while the sky and the particles are painted in Photoshop. Used a photo of a sky for the initial sky plate, but it mostly was repainted. Used max for modeling, vray with harsh key light and fill light, to give it a “high altitude” look and Photoshop to composite it all together.
the ship was modeled few months ago, you can check it out in my portfolio.
So hope you like it :)

models, perspective, and background are all great, but the ship texture around the middle of the body is a bit distracting from the smoothness of the rest of the ship.

great work, 4*

Great detail in the ships and I really like the scaling of the planet to the ships also. really good work. The lighting seems a bit too bright and gives the ship in the forground a flat look. I really like the shadowing of the ships in the background to the right. It is great how the planet cast a shadow in the ships.

Love it. The perspective is deceptive, not sure 'up' from 'down' - like that. The one fighter (being chased?) seems less defined than the foreground fighters and the ships in the background. But - top-notch.
