For this piece I’ve stuck with the “Pastorale” setting for just a bit longer, but moved away from the peaceful theme to illustrate the highly changeable nature of life on the Great Plains.

I grew up in the Midwest fascinated by the sky (with the land around me nearly as flat as the sea) and even dreamed of studying meteorology to learn all I could about the weather. I grew out of it but the sky and weather still play a huge part in my work. Many 3D artists these days choose photographic skies but I always prefer to design my own.

The tornado here was modeled in Houdini and the scene was rendered in VUE. It took me a bit longer than I’d hoped to finish this one but I do have a few other versions which I will share in the days ahead.

Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
