Exploration//Exploitation, Pedro Fernandes (3D)

Title: Exploration//Exploitation
Name: Pedro Fernandes
Software: Photoshop

This is my first proper post, after following CG society for quite some time. So please go easy on me :)

Hello to all the community.
Finally I have finished off a “little” (that ended up not being so little) personal project.

It’s a tribute to my infancy and all the Sci-Fi movies I watched and adore to this day, be it Blade Runner, Star Wars or the even later Prometheus (there’s a little homenage in there if you can find it and a couple of other references to other things that have influenced my life, London etc).

The visual aspect of these filmes have stayed in my mind, even throughout all my architectural course. I wanted to create a world that was halfway between something earth like and outer earth. The initial working title I think explains the work best. It was initially called “Exploration”, of both the storey line and the techniques involved, thus turning into a more suiting “Exploitation”, which reflects a little of what goes on in the world today with natural resources/mining and ecological factores.
I’ve been longing to create something of this genre for quite a while, as I wanted to explore further the connection between 3D and matte painting. Also trying something I don’t usually have the opportunity to try, exploiting a cold, uncomfortable climat. I became quite interested in matte painting after working at Vyonyx, they really showed me a new way to look at things, so a big thanks to all.

That’s all for now, I hope you like it, and look forward to your comments as well.

I think you did a great job here mate!

Really love the environment you created, and the following description too.

Unfortunately I haven't watched Prometheus yet, 'cause here in Italy it is gonna be out in October, but I will look for the references you wrote about.

I would like to understand more about the techniques you used.
It looks to me more like a matte painting than a mix between 3d and 2d. Can you show some wires or passes?
In any case the final look is awesome.

My only "critic" could be on the meeting line between sky and heart, it looks a bit confusionary to my eyes stealing a bit of image depht, but it still looks great.

Really epic feelings from this image man, congrats
