Children of Fire by frenic Children of Fire by frenic
::::: Concept behind is a world where the suns rays can kill any living thing. So the inhabitants built their world under huge cantilever mountains and canyons to get away from the killing heat. ::::::

This is my winning entry for the mattepainting challenge at another site : [link]

Second personal matte for me for 2009. Took me about 2 days to do in about 24 hours tops.

Working resolution was an little larger than 3k res. Photoshop and Maya for that CG looking vent thingeeeee....
Of course comments are always welcome!

p.s. I was supposed to change this and develop it further but i decided to post it here and create a newer version with the same theme

alternate orange colors: [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-17
Children of Fire by ~frenic shows a lovely executed matte-painting of extra-terrestrial life. It could be straight out of a science-fiction movie. If you like this picture, you're going to love the rest of his gallery! ( Featured by taenaron )

This is one of those works where, the only way you know it's a painting is because you know it doesn't exist, great job!

awesome buddy! i think you should build a spaceship flying into the tunnel and then bring into nukes 3D system for some parallax and motion. I would even animate some heat distortion in the background :)
