Homeworld Ordalla by z-design Homeworld Ordalla by z-design
A pair of explorers look out to the flying cities of Ordalla - an advanced civilization. The Ordallan Homeworld.

Matte painting/spacescape several weeks in the making. Finally finished. I originally made this for Troy CLE's "Marvelous World" [link] however he thought the landscape did not fit his story(but he still thought it was cool). I am glad he rejected it, because I could then do anything I wanted with it, and this is what has resulted.

Used many stock images from istockphoto, stockxpert, and others. I've even recycled my terragen renders from previous artworks including "arctic sweep"(the base landscape), "First TG2", and "Summer Calling" into this. Works quite well.

Images used: [link]

I had a lot of fun with the nebula using photos of marble tile. I might put up a tutorial in the future.

Enjoy it folks, I'm now going to go back to working on the "Swift Project" (read journal for details)

You certainly get those imaginations inhabitants of other dimensions and other planets with existing lives. I know you have a lot of talent in this kind of work, but if you believe in other people is certainly with the thoughts and ideas focused on this element type.

I've had some imaginations alike that when I woke up I did not want to return, are things that I do not know how to explain, but able to demonstrate in Art. But I do not have any tool to be able to express these views I have.

I really wanted to be able to draw so that neither you, Congratulations.
