BUZZ LIFE, Andrea Bertaccini (3D)


Name: Andrea Bertaccini
Country: Italy
Software: 3ds max, combustion, Photoshop

This is a reproduction of the 69 Life’s cover, the famous photo of Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, the man on the Moon.
We try to reproduce that moment and about the title , we have played with the words.
all the image are made in 3DS MAX and postprocessed in Combustion and Photoshop.


Now that is amazing!! For a reproduction of a old magazine cover, it makes me feel like I’m there on the moon!


Wireframe please.


Seriously… Wow!
I had reservations about how much of this was CG, but after hunting everywhere for reference pics, about the only thing I could come up with was this:

After looking closely at the ref. pic and model, I can’t believe how good a repro. this really is…
Front Page for me, but then I see you’ve already got another pic on FP!

Would love to see a wire (even a partial)

Great job . 5 stars from me… :thumbsup:



very-very super :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :eek: :bounce: :scream:


*nicely done:thumbsup:


Wow great work ! beautifu lighting… :slight_smile:


for real you are BAD BAD…GREAT JOB


needless to say - HOLY CRAP!

two questions:

how did you go about creating the reflection on his helmet? did you model the surrounding area (moonlander plus the other astraunaut)?
Also, is the background also CG or a photo?

and, please, post a wire


This is the wire


5star! Great Job!

I.M.P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E :eek:


Yes I used that photo for create the model, the reflections on the helmet are a mix of real reflections (the arm and the other thing on the end of helmet glass) but the image of Armstrong and Lunar Landing come from texture.
The background of image is a texture like you see on the wire.
all the rest of the model encosed the clock are full modelled.



5stars from me too.

Keep up the good work.


:)woha! Great job! looks awesome! :thumbsup:


Outstanding work! Really nice :wink: The only crit are the colors, there should be more blue, like the original image… from me!!!
