Swirling Sands by soulburn3d Swirling Sands by soulburn3d
While a lot of this is painted, there's enough 3d in there to still call it a 3d image. The towers are the most prominent 3d element, the sand dunes are a mixture of paint and heavily manipulated photographs of real desert dunes. I kept the image a little loose so it wouldn't feel overworked, so feel free to consider it a sketch / concept piece if you like.

Those towers remind me of Majoraīs Mask by their shape and of FF XII by their scale.
Hm.Overall itīs a nice pic,but the dunes are quite repetitive (too obvoius,that is) and I think it could use just a little more detail in the foreground-for my taste.But thatīs mostly because I imagined them to be something in use by those tiny humans and their fellas.
I guess this way just makes them look like artifacts which those figures are just passing,which of course makes it a cool thing too.

I did leave the characters possibly a little too loose what with all the details in the towers. Thanks for the crit.

This brilliant and epic. It must be amazing to walk over desert dunes and to see such huge towers in real life.:D

They're factories, I never really decided what sort of factory when I originally made the piece, afterwards I sorta felt mining would make sense, but solar energy would make sense too.

Are the towers elevated cities or are we talking massive generators of some type?

Factories, so they are manned, but not exactly the place you'd like to live.

For some reason, it reminds me of the Robert Silverberg's novel The World Inside, but with some reminiscences of Dune of course

Never read that novel, but will look into it (always interested in reading old, good scifi). Thanks for the recommendation!
