Create a sci-fi image in one hour, and why I could do it.

This week I was browsing the web when I fell on an image that struck me. As usual the image was downloaded and put in my “inspiration” folder, a place where there are all sort of stuff that must be checked back later , either to analyze, study from, get inspired or maybe try to recreate a similar atmosphere or effect depicted in that image. The image can be found here : (made by

So yesterday I had some free time and I wanted to redo this strong contrasted image, of a pure white light illuminating a kind of spaceship dock or bay. Here is the image that took me around one hour to create (not counting rendering 20mins)


As you can see this is fairly detailed and that is the point I want to focus on today :reusing pre-modeled greebles freely available.

Here is the quick process creating this image :

Then I remembered having seen some pretty good greeble blend swap file.  Here is the file (, and once again it is done by Kuhnindustries, who is an amazing modeler!

I do believe those kind of blendswaps are the most useful ones. Small elements that you can reuse and assemble in a bigger set/model/scene, just like Lego bricks. If you know of some other ones feel free to comment below, I will add them here

So again thanks Kuhnindustries for all your models! If you ever meet me, you get a few free drinks 🙂

p.s. Someone on Twitter rightfully mentionned that this image has no real Point of Interest. In fact the original image had some text in the center, so here is an updated version, with something to look at 🙂



New Ingenia corporate film

Well I am back from china (mongolia right now)  so now I can blog back again… really awfull censorship… just example, they have the power to cut your wikipedia access for 5 minutes if u try to read an article too sensible for them (green dam censor software). Not even talking about vimeo and youtube.
So back to main topic. Today a quick post to show a project we finished at RGB about end of may. It is a corporate video intended more as a fictional showcase than a real company overview. Thus a great liberty of creation and process. All the elements (subway, city, office) had to be built using the customers products: modulable metal profiles. Maybe later i will write a bit about the process of creating it.
You can check their newly designed website for more infos , and you can find the film on the homepage  or under “decouvrez notre video promotionelle”.

Thanks to Pablo Vasquez for the work on it too, and good luck to his Venom’s Lab DVD , buy it its worth 🙂
