It's from a game called Fin Fin on Teo, the Magic Planet. LGR did a video about it. I've never played it, but it looks really charming.

>>1238 First pic is incorrect, here's the correct version. The reason it looks like this is because the image used as a height map (i.e. how the ground is shaped) was rotated. So by rotating the map back to its original orientation the picture now makes sense, no more floating palace.
Open file (98.81 KB 1280x960 33njx1jja1j21.png)
>>1255 Thank you. As obvious as it is, I never even noticed how that was floating. I was too busy looking at the centipede monster thing.

>>1233 Fun fact; the first pic was a WIP which later became pic related. Sadly the source file for the completed version was never shared, only the incomplete version. Third pic is also incorrect, for some reason it renders garbage using POV-Ray 1.0 but not 2.0. I uploaded the correct version. >>1256 >I was too busy looking at the centipede monster thing. Funnily enough Mark Miller calls it a "slug".

I'm not sure which one I like better. I find the Fisher-Price colors and floating orbs of the original charming, but I like the water and the more put-together appearance of the later one. >Third pic is also incorrect, for some reason it renders garbage using POV-Ray 1.0 but not 2.0. I uploaded the correct version. Thank you. It does look much nicer with the proper columns and without the the creatures' unintentional proboscises.

>>1967 Where are these picture from?
>>1968 The CD store pics are from this site: http://www.e-spaces.com/lbw/portfolio/projects/port_cdshop.htm I don't know the source of the Technopolis ones, but they apparently date back to 1998. They look too rough to have been professional pre-rendered concept art from that time, so maybe they were real-time renders from some software release. There could have been some promotional program released prior to the Technopolis opening up as a way of generating publicity.

I just got this. It's a neat little book of 3D artwork from 1997 and is the source for the Jurgen Ziewe images in the thread (most of them, at least). It's worth a buy if you come across it and like that style of art.
