Until the Light takes us by Eimer Until the Light takes us by Eimer
The wolves Skalli and Hati hunt from the beginning to the end of all times the moon and the sun across the sky. At the time of Ragnarök (the "Twilight of the Gods", the end of the world in Norse mythology) Skalli and Hati will seek to outrun and devour the moon and the sun. The blood of the moon will then darken the sky. In my imagination, Skalli and Hati are robotic wolves with an infinite supply of energy. They have chased the moon for thousands of years, caught up with him at the end of times, eaten him, and now they have fallen back into their old patterns. They live in space stations, which have outlived their creators and awaiting their return in standby mode. They located bright fixed points, that sun and moon had given them, which now have disappeared entirely. Skalli and Hati have swallowed up the light of life now and enjoy human relics in the destroyed atmosphere of our world. On dusty surveillance monitors you see them still staring at the light of incandescent lamps. For all eternity. After almost every energy source has been extinguished over time, they find an infinite supply of self-reproducing mechanical animals. In Skalli and Hatis eyes, these bright beings are still the sun and moon at their birth. The hunt is on.

the creating process was a hell of a ride.
It took me months to finish it and now I'm very exhausted.
This piece is part of my part of my BA-Thesis and the Vray Anniversary Contest from cgtalk.com as well.

Final Render Resolution was 6562x9450 (62 Megapixels). Saving the .psb took around 20 Minutes for each save (i got 12gb Ram, a SSD and an i7 960...) at this resolution.
Build with Cinema 4D, rendered with Vray.

Hope you like it.

It looks so amazing... amazing concept, composition and tecnique!

I keep wondering what you did to achieve the 'look' it has as if it's painted/coloured traditionally. The textures, on the floor specially, and the lighting work you did here is jaw droping >_<
This is totally worth the months you took creating it. 

:)

Thanks again! <3
I'm glad you like it :)
I took a high contrast greyscale version of the image, switched it do different blendmodes to extract lighter and darker parts of the "pass" and used a Material ID to mask it. It's basically a a repainting with layers for each element....but without painting.

Oh! That's so funny! I know that image fairly well, this one reminded me of it strongly, but for some strange reason I didn't think to look at the rest of your gallery. Thanks for the heads up!
