StarCatcher mk. XIV, David Louis (3D)



Title: StarCatcher mk. XIV
Name: David Louis
Country: Canada
Software: Digital Fusion, Maya, mental ray, Photoshop

Hi,

I created this picture when trying to find an atmosphere and a design for an upcoming short film. The Starcatcher mk. XIV is the last of an unsuccessful serie of star catching machine. The idea was to merge a huge telescope with a powerful beam tractor.

Modeling texturing and lighting done with maya/mentalray, clouds are generated with maya fluids and some plants done using ivy generator.
Final compositing done in fusion.

All crits and comments are welcome !
Hope you like it !

Well I think this is a wonderful work. The only problem I have with it is that I didn't make it
:(
It's awsome man, very well crafted piece.

Excellent piece. Caught my eye straight away. Love the composition and the colours, and generally, just that abandoned otherworldly feel that you've managed to transmit. Keep up the good work!

Lovely fine style with poetic mood. Sky colours remind me on baroque landscapes. Beautiful!

Only point of crit would be the ivy. The leaves seem a bit big and it looks a little flat. Other then that, the composition, ambiance, color combination, model... its all awesome.

Thank you guys for your comments !

mnoire: I agree with you about the ivy plants, the output mesh was not catching light as expected during final render :(
I like the process how ivy is working but thinking about dynamic and wind will push me to use paintfx instead.
