This is the final composite of the "Epoch". I made a cool matte painting to set the scene for the image. I didn't spend a whole lot of time on it so its not 100% accurate but I hope you all can recognize it!

I hope all you Chrono Trigger fans out there enjoy this image as much as I did creating it!

-Model created in Maya 2008.
-Rendered in various pass's with scanline/mental ray.
-Composited in Photoshop.

It's beautiful! I love how you've done the Epoch, as well as the backdrop. The only thing is the background blurring-- mainly the sky and the hilltops -- the lake and lastly the Epoch's cockpit. First off, the sky usually isn't blurred. It's mildly distracting set behind the Epoch. Second, the hills blur a little too suddenly, and Guardia Forest seems both blurred and detailed, which is distracting. A more gradual blur would be much easier on the eyes and would allow more focus on the centerpiece: the Epoch, in all it's wonderfully-detailed glory, the only thing missing being the pilots (hard to choose, but might I suggest Crono, Marle, and Lucca, to go with the time period and the feel?). As for the lake, I had to look up a picture of the world map to see what it was, since it looks like it's resting on top of the hills here, and has a transparent quality that resembles the force field found on the Mystic's continent. The colors, however, are bright and perfect, and I love the balloons drifting up from the Millennial Fair. As a whole, this picture feels like Guardia 1000 AD, full of life and hope.
What do you think?

What would the interior of the cockpit look like if it were real life? Would it be more akin to an airplane with the proper navigation controls like airspeed/aittitude/and the one where it shows you banking left and right? Would the vehicle have proper lights?

I wonder how hard it would be to make this into Microsoft Flight Sim X or 2004 version and actually fly it to an airport?

did you create the clouds and mountain ranges or did you use a preset image?

I used a base image of a mountain range and then painted lots of the trees, castle, fog and other details on top. The clouds were also a combination of an image and hand painted.
