Journey of the Atreidae
serving Intrinsic Nature release 11 (Featured piece)

This is probably one of the most time consuming pieces i've ever done... I put alot of work into this so make sure to look at all the detail! Alot of people dont notice the camels and people on the bridge to the temple ;)

This is about technology vs religion, or traditions. I feel that even when the human race has achieved technology that will be able to get us anywhere, let us do anything we want, many will still follow the traditions of their ancestors... the power of religion and tradition will always live on.

Vue, Cinema 4D, Zbrush, Wacom Intuos

Another amazing environment!
By the way, I'm really curious about how good and how far Vue can do, for real. I know Avatar is using this software, but I can't find how exactly CGI team use it. And recently I just know/learn one fact, in 3D industry/area, there's too many thing can change the final result, if one of it goes wrong and everything will looks like a piece of trash, very miserable. 3D is a extremely crucial/fundamental needed skill, so basic on this reason, I can never judge Vue just by those youtube video who have less of skill, I need a professional artist to be my reference.
Okay, can Vue export .obj with map and so on? If it can be, how much detail this obj will have? It does not matter how good Vue render is, I know I just need to import it in C4D and render it out, maybe use Vray and it will look freaking awesome lol.

I really like the look of this as soon as I saw it I knew there had to be some epic story behind it. the scenery just lends itself to have a story accompanying it. I could see it in some movie.  Great job!:D (Big Grin)

Well, I have to say I poured myself completely into this piece for awhile. I stood on every balcony of the temple and marvelled from every height at the sheer size of aged statues, the low rumble of the ships passing by, the slow progress of the pilgrims, the mist rolling in from the sea, and the cry of sea gulls. You've poured so much imagination and detail into this work. It is pure escapism at it finest. Thanks for sharing.

You can certainly tell the time you put into the piece. Visually, even at first glance, it is simply a stunning piece. Hitting the download and looking at it from a larger point of view and quite frankly, it is without words. Its such a clean and clear piece, the shading and attention to details are top notch for sure. I hope you continue along this line with you work, because I feel doing so will take you far regardless of the time it takes to create them. Thank you so much for sharing.
