City with a View
- We had a project about 3 months ago to create and brand our own city. We where given several choices of things to make, one of which was 3D Architect of the city. The idea behind my city was it was going to play off the earths elements. I have the building hanging off the side of a cliff to represent earth, I have it powered by wind through turbines and fire by solar panel. And lastly it is surrounded by the ocean which represents water. When I took on this project I figured I would model buildings and composite them into a picture of cliffs, but there aren't any cliffs near by us in Orlando and I don't like the idea of using stock photography, so I created cliffs myself. I wanted this image to look as realistic as possible so I also modeled the grass on top of the earth and the turbines in the background. I also created the clouds and ocean to give it it's final touches. Lastly, I wanted to show how beautiful it would be to live in one of my cities buildings, So I composited myself into the shot to show the view from my penthouse suite.
