I am still tweaking my Hongkong image. The lighting is very difficult. There is an inside and an outside scene in one. But I like doing this tweaking stuff.. it’s educational 🙂
I love the double-decker trams. I love the walled city look. I love the sounds, smell and food. I love the chaos. I love the relaxation. I love Hongkong.
It has been a long time ago since I visited Hongkong for the last time, so I have to use my imagination.
I made this image using Blender mostly.
This is a work in progress. I’m planning to finish this image somewhat different. No Star Wars for one. But the Star Wars bug got me. So I added the stormtrooper (thx JJ Palomo) and the rebel logo and called it finished.
The original plan is inspired by ArtStation. I really love the 2d concept art images on this site. I wanted to make concept art too but with 3d , because I can’t draw or paint well. So my initial drive was to make a fast build, sculpted and textured image. I failed. Most meshes are build extremely fast, but then I got caught up in details.
I’m learning Blender and by taking on a whole project is often times the best way; lather, rinse, repeat. I had to go back to 3ds Max a few times, but found it difficult to find my way around. Some other external programs were used. Blender is getting there but there are a few specialized programs, better suited for some stuff, out there. There are so many tutorials on how to do Blender that I can’t even start to thank all the makers, but thank you all.
After visiting an Eilers exhibition, I was so inspired by this great photographer, to put some time and effort in making this image. Eilers lived in Amsterdam during the industrial revolution so in his photos you see a changing city. I wanted to capture this in 3d.
