Above The Rest 2007 by Horhew Above The Rest 2007 by Horhew
Remake of my 2005 artwork, "Above The Rest". This is not a mere "update" to the original image as it was first intended. Instead, I decided to redo it completely. All that was kept from the original image was "he who is above the rest" :). So since it was built from scratch, it took me 2+ weeks to get to this final result, working everyday, sometimes even up to 15 hrs. Enjoy it.

Tech info:
Resolution: 3987x4392 px
Software: LightWave 9.2 + Photoshop CS2.
No photos used.

These hexagonal columns with a water-filled top remind me of Amateria, from Myst III... See what I mean ?
And it shares also the same genuinely transporting atmosphere. You really don't suffer by comparison ! Congrats !

Looks great! I has a charming mood of a futuristic world that's still heavily tied with the natural environment...sounds like my kind of place :lol: Nice use of Vue here :clap:

i just got lightwave.... i'm guessing it'll take a while to make something like that!!

any good tutorial sites i should look for? ;)

keep up the beautiful work.

thank you.
hmm..lightwave tutorials. sorry mate, I have no idea. the only tutorials I ever followed were the ones available on the official website: [link]. I remember there's this website: [link] for everything lightwave. best way to find what you need is to google a bit.
But get as many tutorials as you can, don't make the same mistake as I did and only read the manual, because that's the wrong way to approach a program like lightwave. having a "teacher" works best in this case.

hehe. thanx man.
as for the variety, I meant it like that precisely, in order to emphasize the solitude of the shrines in an ocean of rock. It's definetely not a city, but just a place for meditation, a pilgrimage destination.

Ooo! u've finished the redesign. but wait! so much looks slightly different ... even the 'shrine' is a bit different and in a slightly different angle.

i take it u used a 3D model?

anyway, very nicely done :)

:iconhorhew:
Horhew Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
yes, as i said, everything was rebuilt from the ground up. I remodeled the shrine completely (the old one was sooooo outdated-it was done 2 years ago, I had poorer modeling skills) and used completely different textures. Perspective was changed to allow better visibility of the shrine.
thanks

Good lord, you have every right to be pleased; just the thumbnail grabbed my head, turned my eyes, and said "LOOK AT ME!!!"

Absolutely fantastic; you are a master of your tools, indeed.
