Default December, 2011: Mirkwood

Hi all,

So as mentioned in the 2D thread, I've had the Hobbit on the mind for the past few days after bumping into one of our grads who is about to head to Weta to be a character TD on the film. Very excited for him and, of course, to see the first film when it comes out next year!

On that note, this month's theme is.... Mirkwood

Good Luck!

edit: winners announced!

Matter of fact due to Vue, I will love creating it.

Yup it is going to be very interesting.

So basically Mirkwood is the darker forest of evil while the green wood is one from where the evil has lifted?

Default Lord of Rings 4: The legend of Mirkwoods

Here is another 3D creation. This one went over 90 renders out of which first 30 I had to just disregard because I kept changing the scene in Vue, till I was satisfied with the lighting and location. I could have easily created the Trees in Zbrush but I wanted to do it in Vue. Built individual trees in Vue and then placed them and kept playing with the lighting. If I get time, I will love to add arrows quiver behind Bloom. Those who wish to see the work flow can check my site below. Used Zbrush spotlight for the first time as well for Bloom, then decimated the model and imported in vue.

This is 3D render



As in the LOR movies special effects added to make the image soft and intensified.



Theme: As Peter Jackson is coming out with Lord of Rings Prequel : The Hobbit next year, maybe he will go ahead and move on to continue the story ( I know it ends at LOR3) with one of the main characters. I took Orlando Bloom as the main hero here as Legolas Greenleaf who was the son of Thranduil, King of the Woodland Realm of Northern Mirkwood, with Gimli the Dwarf ,and an elder Elf lady, looking for a monster which is haunting the forest of Mirkwood. Killing it will lift the curse from the Mirkwood forest once and for all. But they are getting ganked by the monster from behind while busy talking..
