This is a real must see work. Fantastic foliage and lighting. So ultra-realistic!
Maybe the best 3D work I've ever seen:

Knowing how to utilize Maya PaintFX is a plus. I rarely ever see it used let alone anyone talk about it. I watched several tutorials on this one feature and it's very powerful. It can do stuff that makes x-frog run for the hills as it's more powerful and versatile. Of course using Mental Rays power helps a lot.    ;D

Thank you at all for your words, I appreciate a lot.

Yes, all are 3d plants and poly count is 900,000,000 triangles

I render all images in one pass, mr sky&sun and final gather multibounce, AO + color bleed, esposure control with mr.exposure.photographic and linear workflow (gamma 2.2), all plants and grass are paint effect poly converted.

Yes I also read that. 900million polys, pretty crazy :)
I wish I could do stuff like that for maybe 10-20% :)

That's incredible (and realistic)

On Renderosity Vue forum there are people who assert that it is not much more than what Vue can do and that plants are alpha mapped photographs or so. Examine such statement in the light that CGFroum people are busily searching the floor for their jaws...

Bye!!!

Haha, yeah I just read those messages there. Quite hilarious from time to time, since some of them really have no clue what was involved in creating this piece of work and the most hilarious is that they think Vue could do at least as good, if not even better ;) lol :)

Well, to be bruatlly fair. Those trees don't have enough displacment in the bark or warping in the branch geometry to hold up to too much scrutiny. That's not meant to take away anything from the talent and time applied to that model, because it's some of the best work I've seen.

But I've never considered Vue to be used for anything other than background plates, which hopefully don't flicker once animated at reasonable quality settings. And I've yet to see what TG can do in that respect, but think the AA filters have an edge over Eon.

To be fair, these images have been created in a complete modelling/texturing/lighting package, with some pretty sophisticated tools to achieve this 'photo real' effect.
