Meadows and dikes, the eternal Dutch allies. Build after a landscape picture, as presented in the overview page. Summer Autumn Winter
my contribution to the e-on Vue Environment Competition, last summer. I especially like the sun reflections in the curved buildings. Building blocks from Dystopia, objects from everywhere, lot of retexturing. Completion and Rendering required a 64-bit system due to memory requirements, and took 1 hour at 1024×820 broadcast quality (Vue Complete 9 – i7-990X @4GHz). The final version 7000×5000 took 48 hours.
The Turning Torso images were inspired on the Malmö Turning Torso, and the freebie unit modeled by ColaCola. By placing three of them together, the 90* twist makes that all sides are in view. Camera at the floor looking upright, with some trees for depth and color contrast, rendered in Vue.
