Arrival . at Orca City
depthCORE pack Archae

I have no idea what archae is actually, and I thought it was about architectural stuff at first and so I got this idea. Anyway here you go. Modeled and rendered in 3DS Max without using anything called Geeble. I modeled everything from nothing.

Orca City is one of the hidden habits in the spacescape. While the empire is preparing the war (Imperial), this group of people lives in the fog, constructing giant columns of boxes. They have also the technology to generate energy in the air (like Recticore) but in an unstable way. Therefore they need to construct the settlements around the power source. Every day these starships transfer people and goods from one column to another, and only hope to be undisturbed by other races...

UPDATED . Thanks so much for the DD! And I also "weakened" the watermark. :) Thanks all the support!

Arrival by Vincent Lai of DepthCore fame, is a perfect example of why these guys are carving out such a huge name for themselves in the world of digital art. Hulking sci-fi imagery combined with great composition sets this apart from the pack.

Nice!!! How long does it take to create something like this?
niteangel Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005
You mean modeling? It takes several days to get things right. I drafted this on paper for a week too. :)

Wow, I don't think I'd have the patience to work on something that long.
