Personal one?
Personal?
That is breathtakingly awesome! Absolutely perfect execution.
Good lord the resolution and the detail. The 3000x1340 res is underscored as low. As if to mock us :P You own a personal renderfarm?

The landscape is Avatar level detailed and alive. Screenshot from Avatar attached, you are definitely matching the quality of one of the most expensive movies ever produced.
The Fog, the lighting, everything plays perfectly together. Is the smoke done in post or in renderer? Because it interacts perfectly with the shadows and so on.

Is it an actual personal project, as in no team was involved?

This reminds me of Age of Empires a bit. Something like one might dream future games will look like.
Another Corona artist posted an image of a building modeled in the Dune universe. Which is what I imagine Dune 2000 would look like in 2050.
This is exactly what I imagine Age of empires 2 with it's Maya expansion "The conquerors" will look in 2050.

All those tiny details, the vegetation, the light...  Congrats my friend, I can't wait to see more of this.

Hahaha! Thanks for such candid takes. it really inspires me to keep doing more. Funny that you compare it to Avatar. I used to work at Weta :)

Yes, it is just me :) ..but it goes very slow as i have to juggle with other things. So far i have only Two final images for the project.

The smoke is added in PS. I'll play with some cg one for the next image.

I don't have a render farm or that much RAM. I eventually couldn't render it at home so sent it to a Farm online for a single frame. It went really quick, mostly the file handling was the hassle. I put a 200 passes limit so it was a bit noise ...but an acceptable noise . Final resolution is 12K.

Beautiful rendering, I love the attention to detail!

One funny thing I noticed: I might be mistaken, but isn't this a Spanish colonial church in the background? :-)

I didn't noticed these latest comments!. Thank you guys! it keeps me going.

Yes, Huoska!.It was indeed a colonial church poking in the distance which i retouched to look like a Mayan Pyramid Crest. i guess i failed there cuz still looks colonial. I hate you now :)

Hard to say Melviso. I have been at least for 2 and half years on and off with the whole project. That particular image took me maybe around 4 to 6 weeks without counting how long it took to create the assets.
The Merchant Portrait took me a couple of months of hard work as i had never done characters before.

These renders are, of course, sublime. Congratulations :)

Can you please explain the texture workflow for the village buildings? For example, is everything textured procedurally or are some of the assets textured in Substance Painter or Mari?
