The new dynasty

The descendants venerate the ancient gods and feel protected among them. This is why they continue to pay homage to these divine lands without degrading the sacred places from which they inherited. Giant warriors are enthroned alongside artificial intelligence in order to continue to conserve these ancient lands.

Final

So here is my last and final update. Working on this contest have been really challenging. By watching other entries I managed to stay motivated during the whole journey. Everyone has their specific ideas for this overview and I remember how much i said "oh my lord, that's way to cool, i can't wait for the final result, it's gonna rock for sure".

I hope everyone manage to do what they expected to do as first and hopefully more.

Pitch :

The universe of forbidden lands, empires and fallen guardians, are here in harmony with the future. The descendants venerate the ancient gods and feel protected among them. This is why they continue to pay homage to these divine lands without degrading the sacred places from which they inherited. Giant warriors are enthroned alongside artificial intelligence in order to continue to conserve these ancient lands. Women, men and robots join forces to make peace prevail in these coveted lands.

Any c&c are welcome, I hope i can continue to grow up as artist by your side ! Congrats everyone

The power of 3D software

Part 2 : Lighting

At that stage, i'm doing some lighting test to find out what's really enhanse my image. I try to mix a dynamic lithing and still a realistic one. Because i want this illustration to be as realistic as possible, i also deal with staying as simple as much, but still, trying to avoid annoying lighting scenario.

Part 3 : Texturing & Rendering

Here is now my raw render out of arnold. For the vegetation I have used several model of plants and trees that I scattered it in my scene. I also added some fog volume to have a believable depth and contrast for my background.
My next plan now is to go for some compositing work, adding details there and there, and make some color correction.

Moodboard

Through all these references, i would love to bring you on my journey for this challenge.

For those who are interested, here are the names of all the painter i took references from :

Charles Courtney Curran, Syd Mead, Edwin Lord, Daniel Garber, David Inshaw, Constantin Westchiloff, Christ Kobke, Gilbert Cass, Carl Moll, Bill Cone, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Thomas Edwin, Arthur Hacker, Andrei Shilder, Alf Wallander and Albert Biertadt.

I took mainly took theses images because of several aspect i liked in, like their special mood and the feeling it brought to me, the colours, the serenity of the tones, some design in their shapes, the constrast of the shadow and the light.


Quick thumbnails

Here is some of my 20min each thumbnails list.

During this process, i mainly focus on values. I try to have a good ratio of light and shadow, wich will give me a good contrast to work with along the whole path. Once i'm okay with my values, i try to define quickly the shapes according to the environment.

Part 1 : Layout

So now i have a nice idea of how my scene should be organized, i'm working on the layout. Having a precise setting will allow me to try in the future some different textures and lighting. All these details will give me more precision about the way i'm telling you the story.
