34.3 million polygons, 1 HyperTerrain "Pointy" in front, 1 8192x8192 standard terrain, 1 HD Tree (customized), and a full Spectral2 atmosphere. Modelled, set up, and rendered in Vue 7 Infinite/xStream. Minor color correction in CPT X4.
Part of the "Elysium" series, I wanted to create an image that captured the "birthplace of Elysium" - a seed of life among vast nothingness.
The desert look was inspired by the terrain near where I live.
C C welcome! Hope you enjoy this image.
