Here are some higher rez stills from the latest work in progress. Have been rendering with mental ray, Maya 8.5. For the water I have used an ocean sample, tweaked it and lit it. Had not done the lighting of an ocean before, works really nicely. Lot of work in After Effects. Layering up of the skies, blooms, light rays, tinting of the scene. Try for a early morning feel. The projects is only 2.50 min long so I am using a kind of accelerated time. Will get from early morning, to lunch, dusk, then the next morning.
