All models are created by me alone, same goes for textures. The exception are posed humans generated with MakeHuman.
Initially I wanted to render the piece either in Terragen + Blender (FG + PBR models Blender; MG/BG terrains in Terragen; aerial perspective from Terragen), but decided for Blender Cycles.
Submitted to a NWDA Travelers challenge (https://nwdastore.com/challenge/travelers/), won nothing.
Thanks for watching!
