Lunar Dawn - mod ii by zebravissimo Lunar Dawn - mod ii by zebravissimo
:: lunar dawn_mod 2

:: comments

This is a remake of an old then-favourite of mine, Lunar Dawn.

Lots of work put into this... the terrain was rendered in black and white so all the colour, as well as the highlights and glows, were painted in with photoshop. Astronauts are 50% painted, 50% photo ref. Planet is a hundred percent photoshop, with satellite imagery used heavily for realism. Space of course is totally photoshop.

In hindsight, I think this is the best starfield I've ever done.

:: details
:: photoshop cs2 + terragen 0.9
:: 2 - 3 hour render, 4 - 5 hours working time in ps
:: original resolution 4000 x 3000

:: merci pour le regarder

Very nice! Love the realism.

Only suggestion is on the lense flair, make it less "lense flair"ish.

What did you use for the planets' clouds?

My ONLY complaint with this one is the lens flare, it looks like it is "straight out of the box", if you know what I mean. Other than that, FANTASTIC terragen work, and the astronauts are flawless. Great work. definitely a :favorite:
