My name is Lebedev Denis and I work as a 3D artist at a CG studio in Moscow. It's nice to see so many people are interested in my most recent work and I'm glad to show you my Making Of tutorial.

Idea

I wanted to train myself to a higher level and so decided to create a kind of complicated environment scene that I hadn't done before. I'm really in touch with themes from the Soviet past, thanks to stories from my childhood, and one of the most striking images from this period, in my opinion, is farm machinery like the Belarus MTZ-80I tractor. I imagined how spectacularly this blue tractor would contrast with a ploughed Russian field on a background of fading autumn grass, under transmissions towers and overgrown with wormwood, and knew it was what I wanted to create.

As with any other work, I started by collecting reference images (Fig.01 - 02).

Because I wasn't completely sure about the composition of the scene yet, I made more of the model than I eventually needed (Fig.03 - 04).

You would be great Farming-Simulator mods creator. And this tractor is awesome! Maybe you can sell tractors model? I think it would be the best soviet union times mod. :)
