Dreamers by alyn Dreamers by alyn
This might well be one of my last images for a while. At least as far as terraspace goes.  I had the ultimate motivation to do my best.

There was a lot of "back to basics" work here. Designing the terrain was the hardest part, and getting anything remotely looking like a heart-shaped ox-bow lake is a challenge when you want it to have any natural feel to it. There were 10 individual renders stitched together in total, I may submit them all to my scraps at some point. I wanted to push the depth factor as much as possible too, so there's a fair bit of foreground element. There's an insane number of concepts in this that may mean nothing to some, but something to others... but for me it's just one of my best.


Thanks to various stock websites including imageafter and morguefile for reference stocks, came in handy especially for getting the scenarics right, and doing the balloons too of course.

Wonderful, and very expressive.
It's the best kind of prints I would like to have in my house. They make you dream just if you look at at the first time.

Great work!

Whoa. This piece is simply...well, there isn't really a word for it, so I'll say 'beautiful times 1000.' The amazing detail that you put into this, like the sun illuminating the scene, is powerfully awesome. I'm lost for words right now...you put the stock together beautifully. :heart: I know it's been said a million times already, but I like the natural-looking little heart-shaped island in the middle. That was so sweet to make something as beautiful as this for your girlfriend. :)

This is so amazing! I especially love the use of light at the bottom and on the side of the hot air balloon. It's like the clouds are the barrier between the light and the dark. And the detail is just wonderful! Its just like what you'd see on a HD tele! ...If it was..you know, paused. Great job :thumbsup:

this is absolutely beautiful! I love how you contrasted the really dark space with the heavenly light coming out of the clouds, it's very dramatic! And it took me a second to see the heart shaped island, really catches your attention and shows there's more than what meets the eye here

WOW!! so awesome
