Concept Sketch: alienscape



Well. A bit late but you know - better late than never. My idea is to present a planet where the flora is dominating. "Flora" is just a word that I use. The scape will consist mostly of crystalline-like trees covering almost all of the land. There will be hardly any atmosphere, so black sky and bright stars will ocupy the sky. So... that's all for now. More yet to come! :> Cheers!

Modeling: low polygonal tree object



So the tree here is made of box and later on I will apply a subdivision method to create more smooth look.

Texturing: A nice texture with a reflection map



The reflection map is a noise with a certain threshold. It's not that complex but I achieve the result I want :>

Texturing: An opacity at the end of the object



Now when the outer transparancy is done I can imagine a field full of these crystalline trees... well at least what I think crystal-tree should look like :P

Texturing: A kind of fruit(or something like fruit)



So only trees just make the landscape boring so let's put some eyecandy. This will be the fruit of the trees.

Texturing: Now the proper trancparancy



Nothing to say...when the trees are transparant the fruit should be also.

Lighting: One light source
