I promised to come back with something a bit different, well still a archiviz but another style
This is a project I had in mind since a while and finally decided to work on.
As you probably guess this is a tribute to one of the most fabulous rock progressive group.
Quite everything is CG except the background landscape which is a photo.
The battersea power station was the main work, I didn't find any blue print for it and had to modeled it based on poor reference images but all in all it seems more or less ok.
The flying balloon pig and the girl clothes have been made using Marvelous designer.
The girl is based on a DAZ3D character.
For trees I used my own tree generator script, I could have used bilboard for the far trees.
I modeled some low poly vehicules and containers mainly to fill the space, they do the job as long as they are far but I wouldn't do any closeup on them
Modeling : Blender 2.62
Rendering : Octane 2.58c
Rendering time : The render has been made in 3840x2400, as Octane is really fast in outdoor scene, those images were cooked in about 30 min using path tracing and direct lighting.
I rendered the scene with alpha background and added the sky in postpro
Leakings on the wall of the power station have been made in postpro to avoid huge texturing work.
Mixing of two images, one rendered using path tracing and lit with an hdr map and another rendred using direct lighting and lit with sun light.
