2 min read


Howdy, I am Kenny/Ken, an eighteen-year-old 3D artist from India. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, I found the fantastic thing about CGI and visible results, and determined to attempt it out for myself. I taught myself Blender and have been a 3D artist since August 2022. I began it as a interest however am fascinated with pursuing it as a occupation.


I created this render as a submission for one of many weekly challenges held by  Clinton Jones. The subject was “islands,” and I’ve at all times been fascinated by the Dynamo Dream collection by Ian Hubert.

So, I considered making a render that might be just like the sci-fi setting of that individual net collection.


I did not mannequin or texture something myself for this explicit render, however fairly used market belongings from Sketchfab to assist me construct the scene.

I used two giant area stations for the background, islands cluttered with buildings for the midground, and hovercrafts for the foreground. I used the Ivygen Addon  to create the ivy.


I often use an HDRI solely to mild a scene and use lights provided that they’re extraordinarily obligatory.

On this case, I solely lit the scene with an HDRI and used a dice with volumetric materials to evenly unfold out the sunshine throughout the scene, making a fairly flat lighting.


After rendering, I digitally painted some clouds, which added some depth to the scene and made it seem like it was excessive within the sky.


Although a scene filled with foliage ought to often have a heavy inexperienced color-grade, I wished to inform a narrative of nature-machine symbiosis and determined to make use of a fairly yellower coloration scheme, whereas the reddish blasts of jet fireplace appear to eat away the greenish vibe of the ivy.


Lastly, I added some blur, lens flare, movie grain, and chromatic aberration to the picture to realize a extra real looking look.
