this is my first post on Blenderartists, but I am visiting regularly since I started using Blender some years ago.
The initial idea for this image came to me when I wanted to participate in a Weekend Challenge here on BA with the theme “Neon”. I didn’t even come close to finishing the piece, and it laid dormant on my hard drive for almost one and a half years
But, better late than never, I finally found some time to finish it.
The hard surface parts were modeled in Blender, the cloth and shards were simulated in Houdini. For the background I ported the “Imperial Corridor” from the Videocopilot Star Wars model pack to Blender.
Rendered with Cycles, 2000 samples + denoise, post in Photoshop.
I’d consider myself more of a technical artist, so I don’t make pieces like this often. Even though I am finished with this one, if you had any feedback I would really appreciate it.
