Spectacular 3D Entry: LOMBARDO Simone


Good mood,interesting compositing.~~

good luck!!



Hi, thankz for replies! :bounce:

Ok i note the votes! Thanks for that, it’s nearly from what i was thinking, and i really understood that it depend of what feeling i want to show. :arteest:

And for me it’s a landscape desaturate and cold, but where a "giant Bonzai:D " grow to save us, pushing some irradiation of warm and energy to the all planet… so… i’ve try this night differents version, centring the “warm” on the tree, and the desaturation and cold far of the tree but near the character. I must adjust some last thing ( i’ve got a too much dark zone on the cylindrical tower in second plan).
I post the final soon. :wip:

Thankz again all for support and comment, stay tuned for the final one! :beer:


A bit late, but the right mid one for me… white cold mood… with a touche of warm… good blend for me… sweet and inspiring for your story… :slight_smile:


Here is my Final image, i can turn around for ten day, but i must choose one and it’s this one. Hope your like it!


Like it? I totally love it!

[b]Congratulations Lombardo :bounce::bounce:

[/b]This turned out really fantastic, I’m so glad you could find the time to finish it - You have a very special style and I like it a lot… so good luck with the jury :thumbsup:

And then some :beer::beer::beer:



"Oh my god… that day it’s simply amazing, …that day… perhaps i must say “the” day,…

It remember me the past time, the human’s errors did in this Beautyfull planet…

It remember me the luck we had, …

Let’s try to explain when all has began…

In October 2008, after somes differents between a few of the World Power, the 3rd World War has officialy began with the massive attack of United States against China…

In 5 days The United States Take half of the CHina’s territory with High Technologic weapons, using Ultra Sound and micro wave. When Japan refused to let the United States planted bases in his territory, the attak of United States against Japan was inevitable

Using a system of low frequency they launch against Japan, a amazing Tsunami…

But the Japan resist well, and in 12 hours all the population was refugied in the G.Cans under Tokyo.
The China was not free, they ask help to the rest of the world, the Europe send troops to help them…but as nobody can imagine the Russian join the United States and attak the Europe.
A war of 4 years has began…

In July 2012, we seen a Alien intervention, they try to stop the war, or perhaps to extermine the human race,… still now, i can’t say if they were bad or good…but they join with the China-Europe camp.
They said that an another Alien civilisation help the United States… and they couldn’t let do that.
After that the camp was USA-Russian-“Little Gray” against China-Europe-Unknow.

In 10 hours…the world be damage as never… population died… in the next 5h the “Little Gray” use their last weapon… and destruct 98% of the population…the last 2% must has been save by the Unknow civilisation…

I was in this 2%… they put us in a large underground and unknow city… all was huge…but too small for all the people. All the vegetation was destruct… and the Ozone Layer too.

So we have to stay in the underground city. A lot of us died everyday, no enough food, no enough water.

The population feel the end… But one day… “THIS DAY”…

It began by an incredible sound of explosion, a ray of light explose the ground of the central hall and smashed the roof! It was there that we stock the last cars we have. But in less than one minute, something strange, something that it can’t be real happened…

A very HUGE tree grown from the ground whit an amazing speed, pushing the cars, and explose the stairs… it was simply amazing…unbelievable… And the tree come out of the city, growing to the surface of the Earth…

In less than 1 hour, this amazing gift of the planet, save all of us…

Creating a new ozone layer, and vegetation, animals, rivers and mountains. It’s was a dream…all this warm energy growning…
In the next month, we could plant cereals, vegetals and fruits. And create again a new civilisation, trying to protect the planet…
I don’t know how it’s possible, i don’t why or from where this tree cames. Some religious groups call it “Yggdrasil” or “Arbre de Vie”… link to it some Divinity or Gods… but i don’t believe them… for me it’s just the Earth… the Energy from the Earth.

Mmmh… perhaps i’m too old for that… hehehe… but for ever, i’ll keep this moment on my mind, this beatiful tree growning so fast, nothing can stop it…and save all of us.

All the youngs survivants now when they look at this huge three, i hope they understand ours errors, and don’t do it again…"

I would like to thanks all people who help me in this challenge, i was not always here, but omg i work and LEARN so much.
So Thanks all!! :beer:
