SFM X-mas - Sci-fi City by Enterprise-E SFM X-mas - Sci-fi City by Enterprise-E
There was a challenge at Scifi-meshes.com for X-mas 2006. Theme was to create an image that represents christmas in a sci-fi setting. It could be an interior, a starship, a space scene, a character, anything. As i lacked a good story, i chose to do an all-round scenario, that doesnt need a background concept.

Hence this city was born. Creation time was around 3 weeks. Everything on the image was modeled or drawn during this time interval, no already available models were used.

Original resolution was constrained at 800x600, but after the contest i re-rendered it in 1024x768.

And well - it won the contest.

Hah, it is mine too. ;) I'd love it there, up in the high-altitude buildings with the clouds hanging over the lower area. (Cloud City is another of my favorites, simply for the high-altitude look.)

I think you did pretty damn well for that constraint. And who's to say the Xmas tree, and the little bells hanging over the street aren't holographic by that time? ;) I also think the iciness plays well for making this feel like it's still on Earth.

i had ideas of sky projected holo-ads and stuff, but couldnt realize anything due to heavy time limits. And yeah, the main influencer was Coruscant. Originally even the lighting was much more coruscantish, but then decided to go after something colder, to look more x-massy.
Coruscant is the city of my dreams.

:lmao: Awesome, especially with the bow on the ship. I really like the modernized Christmas-mood decorations you put into the city here. Looks very sci-fi, but has that nice tie to the Earth times.

Might've been neat to sneak in some more holographic ads or something though. Just little blips of 3D floaty goodness.

Otherwise it's quite cool, and reminds me a little of Coruscant, only Earthly.
