hey. i am thinking of remaking(making).... Dinotopia's Waterfall City in 3D... I can do very detailed realistic modeling and ok rendering, but interested in collaborating with a 2D Artist to paint over the 3D render for unique look of 3D and 2D in on. interested?
I love this because it appears you put some thought into this rather than just tying a balloon to a ship and sticking sails on it. Is the balloon curved down for any reason other than it looks cool? Could it be because strength of curved wood is more important than the aerodynamic of the balloon? Looks very organic at any rate.
