Islands in the sun result


I wanted to be able to do more with Mudbox so I created some forms and looked at what I could do with them afterwards in 3ds Max.

Tower in a dark landscape

8-sided building on black rocks


I wanted to return to the thing I like the most doing: designing structures. Underneath you can see the Zdepth mask, the wirecolor pass and the original drawing I made. The main light in the scene is coming from somewhere opposite of the camera. This accentuates the rocks much better.

Using displacement

I wanted to learn about how to use displace, mapping and some other things in 3ds Max. Underneath you can see the most important maps I created for 3ds Max and a Photoshop tutorial. There is a big difference between how the image came out of the render and the final image after the post-production in Photoshop.

Above you can see a before/after image with and without the post-production. Below you can see a tutorial where I show how I did it.
