The Journey (Artstation Challenge)
 
This render I created for "The Journey" Artstation Challenge. Created using Blender & rendered in Cycles, post processing in Photoshop. It was quite challenging, because usually I do more organic sculpting/modelling, so this was a good hard surface modelling exercise.

A traveller and his dog are waking up early in the morning to start another day on a long journey. My idea was to put a self made robot vehicle (Lada + trailer + robot legs) into a nature scene with a sunrise/foggy mood.


Shading was done using and modifing many of the "CMV" shaders (http://www.cyclesmaterialvault.com/). 
The trees where generated using "TheGrove" addon for Blender (https://www.thegrove3d.com/). 
The grass was created using "The Grass Essentials" (http://www.blenderguru.com/product/grass-essentials/). 
For lighting I used a HDRI sky fromhttps://hdrihaven.com/.
