Fire in the Sky

A simple sky study that I created using VUE on my trusty (8 year old!) Shadowfax workstation while Rochallor rendered another project.    I’ve long been fascinated with how the sun illuminates clouds from below the horizon but it’s tricky to depict this using 3D as most 3D scenes use a flat world.   Here I used VUE’s “spherical scene” mode to move the sun below the horizon and light the cloud layers from below.   The foreground is kept intentionally minimal.

I hope you enjoy it! Stay tuned for another new piece soon!!

EDIT: I’ve added a version to the Pickle Jar without the dock by popular request!
