Grand Space Opera 3D Entry: Hamid Ibrahim


Hi Hamid

You did it, my friend. I love this different approach to the gso theme. Very refreshing. So how is it? -to finish this thing? I feel so empty myself, would really like to be the one with a final image…:sad: But so it goes, no need to regret. I have enjoyed this thread very much, and would like to see other things from you in the future!

Are there going to be more last updates to the final? If there is, I think, that the first final had better colors than the sec. More sharp, more saturated. But removing the little moon to the left, was a good thing in the sec. attempt. was a little too blurred and not doing anything good to the image. If this is the final final, then good luck in the judging. But I´ll talk to you again before that…

See u soon


Couldn´t you make a closeup of the faces, as you did last night? Would like to see if you did anything to them, and what.


Anything new Hamid? Thought you need a giant Bounce smillie right now, showing how good I think your work is…

See u

here is a jump for u Kragh! :bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:… well they are smaller but more …lol:deal:

see u.


Those spacE tornados look awesome…very imaginitive !!


Great modeling and idea. I love the story told in the image.

One thing I’m not fond of is the depth of field. For an image of this scale, the shallow DOF makes it look like a miniature. For this type of scene, the depth of field should be much deeper. Maybe you can play with a different version for later.

Make sure you submit this to Expose 3! I’d enjoy seeing it in print.



Wow awsome result! very different and imaginative:bounce:

Good luck to you i hope you do well! this is nice work.

Kind Regards


hi guys… cant thank you all enough…but still thanks:thumbsup:…hey whats this …have the time been extended or something…eh?? while i ve been sleeping …


ok found out hehehe …:blush:…u lucky guys out there…:rolleyes:!


hi again this is the very final final…since i did the previouse ones compositing at a rush…did it again!


this scene is after the galactic flooding i have told before.

a group of confedrates calling themselves “the rebuilders intergalacticia” started to search the galaxy into getting inteligent beings to serve them to build a new civilization …but they were driven to slavery of those who submit…knowing this the ppl began to hide in all the corners of galaxy where no one will look…then the TRI’s began to score the galaxy with there massive Subraycons to take ppl out forcefully…and killing…! in one corner of the galaxy known as the space oceania whirls(SWO) a group of the last rescures finds the subraycons battalion in the distance and the triple starts off to warn the tribes that live among the astroid islands in the SWO.

About the image:
renderd about 6 layers…the bg sea…the tornadoes…the particle clouds…the three ppl…the bg planets…the low poly subraycons…the rock belts…

each took about 20 minutes to render.on two dual amd opterons.

compositing done in photoshop… all layers combined…intergrated some clouds textures…and adjusted the colour…manuel fog…manuel…blurring hmm thats all …:slight_smile:



very great this piece.
I like it.
good LOOK…
good luck…


I see that you have used the time given very wel. The new version is much better, my congratulaitons! good luck now my friend. Let the polygon be with you:thumbsup:


:bounce: :eek: :bounce:

WOOOW! Incredibly nice stuff you got here! :eek: Just amazing… Things I really much like, is the DOF, the fog, and the planets in the BG…!

Drooooooling… :drool:

offtopic: I feel sorry for you that such a big desaster hit your country… Wish you much strength… Especially if you ‘did have something’ with that part of the country…

Greetz & good luck at the vote,
