Futuristic/Alien Buildings

These are a few still frame renders of a futuristic/alien city I’ve been working on for a personal project using Cinema 4D and Vue. I’ve been playing around with different textures, lighting, and atmospheres to get a realistic look. Click the images for a larger version.

FREE 3D Rescources From NASA


If you’re not already aware, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has a bounty of 3D models and textures available for free to the public. Included are models of the International Space Station, Radio Telescopes, Astronaut figures, the Hubble and James Webb telescopes, textures of all the planets and a lot of the moons in the solar system, and a whole lot more. They are useable in just about every 3D package.

After rendering out the explosion in Cinema, I went into After Effects and added some Motion Blur and adjusted the Curves and added a little Glow to get the final result.

DISCLAIMER: No mammals, birds, reptiles, or fish were harmed in the making of this blog. I don't feel comfortable using the more inclusive "No animals", because I probably stepped on a bug or shooed away a fly at some point while doing this. Do not attempt any stunts you see on this blog! I don't think there are any stunts, but if there are, don't try them! Leave that to the professional stunt people. If you are a professional stunt person, then feel free to do some stunts using proper planning and technique. If you're not a professional stunt person and you're going to attempt a stunt, take a good long look in the mirror before you do it. You'll want to see your body fully intact one last time. Never trust a skinny chef. Finally, if you've read the Game of Thrones books, don't go around spoiling it for the people who haven't. Don't be that kind of person. You're better than that. © 2015 The Kellzone Frontier Theme
