The Definitive Link (CODE 8-1) by 

Cross the boundaries of everything you’ve ever known and dare to step beyond the massive floating towers. This is the Definitive Link, the final network to the central nodes. There, our seeker shall reach the ultimate answer he’s been looking for.

Work commentary:

This is an artwork for my upcoming game The Circular Gate, a visual novel to be released… sooner or later. I’m close to reach version 1.0.

It’s been a long time since I uploaded something. Huge artistic block. Bad. Now, this work was done in a mix of 3dsMAX and Photoshop. The entire scene contains roughly 6 million polygons and it was rendered at 4000×3000 using radiosity and high quality shadows/reflections. Pity it can’t be seen due to the amount of alien light everywhere. Took me ages to clutter the scene properly since 3D can be confusing and filling an area so it stops feeling empty wasn’t an easy task.

Plus I used over 30 different types of towers and copied them in groups till they were over 500. Needlessly to say my computer crashed and begged me to stop, which I had to do in order to get the final render.
