One of mankinds colonies on a distant planet in a future not too far away. The organisation chose this planet because of the friendly environment. Forests, fresh and clean air… paradise. The people that decided to live there spend their time to investigate the planet. Flora and fauna. How does the eco-system work. What minerals does the planet offer. The colony is growing fast and soon needs to expand into other regions of that planet. Be sure to save your ticket soon… there are not many places left.


Basically i used matte painting techniques i learned from the gnomon workshop dvds. I managed to create this piece in merely two weeks in print quality. So i’m quite happy with the efficiency this time. Techniques i used range from photo manipulation to painting and 3d rendering. 3d rendering because the base landscape to that pic was made in terragen.

created with a wacom intuos3.
