Man I really love it but it also saddens me. I don't feel like I have good enough artistic visualization to ever be able to do something like this. Anyway.. Amazing piece! May I ask how long it took you excluding the Render time? Also what references did you use for this?

Hey my friend, I am glad you like the artwork. It just takes a lot of dedication and anything is possible (ok, the knowledge too, but you learn that along the way :) ). You can see the "Making of" of this image, over here: www.3dtotal.com/tutorial/2126-…

Almost good but a little two-dimensional for my taste. It lacks depth and therefore reality, a rethink required as to lighting and how it is achieved. In addition it is all clustered at the front without an idea as to what would actually be there even in its fictional setting. It feels like things have been just dropped in without thinking about what their purpose would be. Chimneys do not sprout from tree lined areas so they are obviously placed in the landscape for effect. As a result it feels very disneyfied. It is the sort of city a child would imagine not one that an adult would expect even in a unreal and imagined world.

Remove some of those trees, bank them up with an industrialised hill complete with factories from which chimneys can spring. Think about the port and whether it would be militarised or commercial, then create buildings appropriate to its use. Remove some of the disneyesque towers... At the moment it is Disney on steroids and although it is almost good, I don't like it and I don't want to live there.

Vladmir, what does it take to get permission to use a couple seconds of this piece in a non-web-based video for a project I am doing? It is a great representation for a steampunk city I describe in a live game.

Thanks man. It takes a lot of wasted time, procrastination and such in order to get  myself in the mood to get started. But once I do, I am not letting go until it's done.
