Thanks Steven,

From what I saw, miniature models and matte painting are much more effective to design a virtual environment, rather than 3D.

I honestly don't think there's one technique that's always better. 'Lord of the Rings' and now 'King Kong' use a lot of miniatures, 'Troy' was all 3D and 'Spiderman 1 & 2' are a mixture (mostly 3D with some minatures for specific scenes).

It's all good.

Yep!! This picture is by Gus Hunter!
I really love the colors, the touch and the landscape but not really this design of King Kong!

Well.. Wait to see more.
Actually Weta is recruiting!! Don't miss it if you have 3 years experience in movie industries.
