Playing with Vue (e-on software)










I'm currently learning how to use MAYA (3D software used for motion pictures & animated movies) with Zbrush (sculpt software). Expect some more digital art for this summer.

I'll try to make some drawing too and maybe get back to the roots: Alien & Predator.

Thank you! That's definitely a reward for me:
My aim with Vue was to get as close as possible with Photorealism.
Of course it ain't look real photography due to my old computer.
I had to cut some effect as a good HDRI for lighting.
Still some images took more than 8 hours to render (especially Pandora like... 5 000 000 000 polygons).

Next Project:

In the 20th Century, mankind encountered something that was destined to be hidden.
What the expedition found there is above imagination... above the clouds.
We are early in the 20th century, Antarctica and what they discovered is insane and brought madness to the people who managed to get back.

Everest is no more the tallest mountain of the planet since this day.  :-X

I love those landscapes. I truly do. You've got some talent there.
My favourite is the fifth one. So much potential in it!
And your next project sounds rather like... my cup of tea.
Continue.

Thank you, I feel glad that you like some of those landscapes.
Here is a new one for H.P. Lovecraft fan:

At The Mountains Of Madness


This is a WIP, I've cut the bottom because there were problems with the caverns beneath the ice.
Also, I'll post a clear version (without tempest) so you can actually see the real insane size of the mounts.

Those images you put together look great, Vue seems like a pretty neat program, how long did it take you to learn how to do those landscapes? Also, what version of the program are you using?

Indeed, vue is very powerful, many Visual Effects companies use it.
I've started doing landscapes with it about one or two months ago.
It's easy to use, there are plenty of tutorials existing around the web.

I've been a bit busy with my final exams but here is another Vue scene:


I guess I'm getting very close to the photorealism.
Next phase is to do a Motion Animation, but I'll need another computer to render the scene.
I'll start also in July to works with Maya and MudBox (a software close to Zbrush).
Maybe I can manage to do some sample animations featuring an Alien or a Predator at the end of the summer  :D

Thank you but I still think it needs a load of work to get to photorealism.
Anyway, I hardly believe this can be achieved with Vue only, that's why I'm learning Maya.
The render soft that comes with 'Mental Ray' is very good to achieve photorealism scene.
I'm thinking also to take a look at 'Vray' which is another third party soft for rendering.
