Floating Lanterns by 00AngelicDevil00 Floating Lanterns by 00AngelicDevil00
I got pretty inspired by this Year of the Dragon theme going on, and - after coming across some great photos of lanterns floating on waters - I wanted to make a serene scene with floating lanterns. ....but I couldn't find any models, so I decided to model some...in Vue only! :D

I quickly made the textures in PS, then modelled 3 types of lanterns in Vue.....it's a popular statement that you cannot make any models in Vue, but - though they might not be the highest quality models - it's not impossible :)

some trivia :D: 112 lights, SSS on all canvases, 3h45min render time.

Vue 10 Infinite; minor post in PS CS5

Thanks for viewing! :)

That's a really beautiful picture. For Chinese people the dragons live underwater. So they're like water dragons. They are said bring blessings of rain and prosperity. Since they are water dragons, the theme of lanterns floating on top of water is really fitting :)
