Watch a digital artist create an insanely beautiful world inspired by Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

You won’t have seen anything like Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets before. In Alpha, the city where most of the action takes place, millions of creatures from different planets live side by side, and they’ve all been brought to life so lovingly by director Luc Besson that your eyes will be popping with delight. It made us want to create a magical world of our own, so we asked digital artist Miss Led to create a 3D work of art inspired by the film’s imagery.

“Google Tilt Brush is an awesome and really simple application that allows you to paint in virtual reality”, Miss Led explains in the video below. Watch as she builds an immersive underwater scene at the wave of her hands.
“You are actually in space,” Miss Led says. “That’s one of the most amazing things about putting the headset on – you’re like, where are my hands? You can’t see your body.”

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets features an epic 2,734 visual effect shots. The Fifth Element, Luc Besson’s 1997 sci-fi epic, featured 188. “We started to work with the artist three years before we started [Valerian]. We started the storyboarder a year and a half before,” Luc Besson explained in an interview. With the multitude of alien lifeforms and environments in this sumptuous space adventure, it’s no wonder it’s the most expensive indie film ever made.
