About ten years ago I flew to Malabo; a small island of the coast of East Africa. It was one of my most impressive flights. Like a opening scene of Jurassic Park; lush jungle, volcanoes, and beautiful clouds. After landing I spotted a wreck just next of the runway. It was left there some time ago. Time and the tropical climate had left its mark.
Modeling: 3ds Max
Rendering and Vegetation: Vue
I stay in hotelrooms a lot. Every hotelroom has this airconditioning vent, usually just above the hallway in the room. With the technological advances of recent years, I do wonder sometimes, if there is a hidden camera looking through the gaps. If so, I’ve never noticed it.
I feel bad for the pervered filming me.. a sack of pale white skin and bones 🙂
After I saw a image of Paul Hamilton I was inspired to make a lavender field myself. I like to make images in one day but this time it took a bit longer.. 3 days. The rendering alone lasted for a hole day.
I love the old landscape paintings from the 17th and 18th century. They make you wonder how it would be to live there at that place and time. No cars, no electricity, no cellphones. Still painters travelled all over europe to visit foreign countries.. very brave. I sit here behind my computer.
Inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian landscapes I build this image.
Using the same technique as the F16, I imported the model from Flight Simulator into Blender via 3ds Max to Vue.
I love the mix of vue with “traditional” 3d modeling. I didn’t do the modeling of the aircraft (I thank iFly for borrowing their beautiful model) so I have to come back one day to this image and replace the aircraft with one of my own. For what it’s worth.. I modelled the approach lights
