dang that looks beautiful


ethizzleyadiggg

Much appreciated!


thestibbits

Damn fire!! Was this with blender?


ethizzleyadiggg

Thank you! Nope, but it could definitely be done with blender. I used cinema 4d and octane render, then added the planet and did some color correcting in after effects.


thestibbits

Color correcting in after effects not Lightroom? Damn still insane too good shit Now I just need a second layer of those same trees up above the first but maybe flip mirrored for variation and you'd have a cozy little forest clearing 😂


ethizzleyadiggg

Tbh I don’t know a lot about color correcting and I don’t spend a lot of time with it so I just use a lut in cinema then tweak the levels and saturation in after effects. My brain can only handle jumping between so many programs before I get scatterbrained so I try to do as much as I can in each program lol


thestibbits

Understandable I'm an illustrator only until I have to use Photoshop for my projects 😂 but for after effects that's some movie quality lighting I figured only Lightroom had


ethizzleyadiggg

Thankfully the lighting is done with octane and is physically accurate. It’s just an hdri mixed with a sky light, which is a bit of a cheat but I just try to match the sun up to where it is in the hdri so it doesn’t look wonky. The only thing I usually do in after effects is add planets or fog using different render passes then add contrast and adjust saturation. I learned how to do specifically what I need in after effects, everything else is foreign to me and overwhelming 😂


thestibbits

Ahhhh okay okay that was a great explanation I see how it came together now 🔥🔥🔥 definitely good work glad you like NMS enough to make it!


Pending-Approval

Holy shit, that looks awesome.


ethizzleyadiggg

Thank you so much!


sp4_dayz

How can you prove that you're not a guy from the 2034 with a regular screenshot of NMS 2? Just kidding, awesome work!


ethizzleyadiggg

I don’t think I can so you’ll just have to wait and see I guess 😏 Thank you!

The Korvax word for Korvax


DumbStuffForMemes

Hells yeah Korvax!


Kidneyman68

Have you ever posted in r/NMS_PhotoShare


ethizzleyadiggg

I have not but I just took a look and it seems to only be in game screenshots. Do you ever see fan art posted there?


Kidneyman68

I don’t think so but we do like a good pic. This one is amazing.


Spacebuns321

Is this how NMS Return of the Atlas will look?


Noitac222

Yoo this is beautiful, makes a great background too


ethizzleyadiggg

Thank you! I plan on making a 4K desktop wallpaper next

You have learned the Vy'Keen word for 'that would be an ecumenical matter'


XYZ_tence

My first impression was a giant knowledge stone rising high above the clouds in the distance. Looks awesome. It is also an awesome picture if the knowledge stone rises above the mist nearby.


Mr_Murphy283

This is incredible!!!


Willing_Big852

Yes..


Comradshellback

Beautiful


mona-lisa-octo-cat

Wow, this is really pretty! It would look so good as a iPhone wallpaper if the image was a bit taller!

I wish the original renders from the game looked this good. Thank you for your inspiration!

TheShanManPhx

That would be awesome, thank you!

Survivor-117

That looks so good!


Dragon2417

Love the fog nice work


_N_H_

Imagine if the game actually looked like this.


helloejsulit

NFT worthy! Hey man this is great, i would suggest to add more planets on the background but this is sooooo sweet!


ethizzleyadiggg

I’ve definitely thought about trying out the nft thing but it’s risky when you don’t have much of a following because of all the fees you have to pay. I can do more planets next time, and thank you!


ZedProgMaster

What's with the smoke machine?


ethizzleyadiggg
