balloon island - personal project

This is a testshot for a personal fantasy project I'm working on in my freetime. Because the story is taking shape I wanted to create a testshot as a proof of concept for the look. The goal was to create a believable but stylized environment thats beeing influenced by a strong dynamic wind. I was also interested in expanding my Houdini knowledge and therefore I staged, modeled and simulated everything in it. The shading, lighting & rendering was done with Arnold in Maya, comp in Nuke.
