Above The Clouds 3ds max, Photoshop September 2009
The shape of a nearby Lauttasaari watertower, sky city of Star Wars and some oriental patterns inspired me with new sci-fi painting.
I started with 3dsmax by doing a simple lathe object and rendering the basic guidelines for perpective. I then started to sketch the overall mood, palette and atmosphere and after that it was mainly just straight forward painting it all in detail. I had a lot of fun with all the small details, windows, vents, little leakings, markings on the surcafe and especially with light. Finetuning the cloud tones was again an interesting challenge, and I think it turned out fine.
