Well.. i am a bit unsure where to put this image, because a lot of the work was done in 2D to realize the environment, but… the main work floats into the ORCUM model in the centre of the image.
It is some sort of sentinel in an old forgotten forest on a far away planet…
This image is part of a low-budget SF-Movie project I am involved in. Daniel Frerix, a student from Germany and a friend of mine is making this movie “RUNGU LUFUS” and it is about 3 Friends who start out on a epic journey to save the world.

So much for introducing :D ;)
First of all… THIS WAS MY VERY VIRST ATTEMP TO CREATE A REALISTIC LOOKING MATTPAINTING FOR A MOVIE SPECIAL EFFECT…
I used a photo from the “Teutoburger wald” in Germany and combined parts of it to a new landscape. The movie will be shot in DVD Resolution and so there was no need to create the painting in ultra highres… I limited myself to 1600x1800pixel (not only because of the lowres source photo i got from my partner ;) This all started out as a test but i like the end result so far and i wanted to share it with you.
The final image was rendered out of 3DSmax with extra contrast and a small noise filter.
