The Dream Alternative by ArthurBlue The Dream Alternative by ArthurBlue
Well, I can't seem to stay away from the red lines... I hope I'm not boring you to death. :)

In my previous image, "The Exit Alternative" [link], I told you about how that was an alternative concept to "The Exit" [link].

Truth is that I frequently think of several alternative depictions of my concepts. Since I showed you that one, I thought I'd show you this image now, which is an alternative to "The First Dream" [link]. It has the same basic elements that are important to the concept: she is coming up a circular staircase, embedded with those red lines, that serves as a kind of passage to another world, coming from some unknown (and seemingly hard to reach) place, peeking into a world with water in it (to serve as a link to the other image "Wake Up" [link]). Similar elements, completely different image.

Rendered in Vue.

hi arturo.. how many time of render of each one picture? thanks.
ArthurBlue Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2013
It depends on the picture. It can be 2 or 3 hours, for simple ones, or it can be 10 or 12, for more complex ones. I don't remember about this one, maybe around 4 or 5.

Beautiful and inspiring! I love your "red lines" world, it's so surreal and futuristic yet very open and lush and peaceful...

do you model your own vegetation? i thing it's one of the most challenging things in 3d
sera-sognato Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013
wow! i was hoping that using a 3d software makes things easier but it still takes too much work T.T (as im studying light myself its so much did you teach yourself all that?

After you gain experience it becomes second nature and you don't even think about it. It becomes fast and easy. Now, if I see something I want to change I know exactly what number or slider I have to change. It's much easier than painting everything again in 2D. :) But in the beginning, before you accumulate experience, it's difficult.

I basically learned from experience and from reading/watching a few free tutorials. Never took a course. But images are only a hobby for me, a passtime, so that's ok. But if you're thinking to do it at a serious level, you should take a course because it gives you a solid foundation.
