I was skimming through my half finished NWDA packs and was wondering which one I'll finalize first.
Among them I found the Farmland pack and the Tornado pack.

I just quickly integrated one scene with the other and out came this beast of a tornado bringing mayhem to the farmland ;)

It's just me toying around. Move on, there is nothing to see! ;-)

Cheers,
Frank

PS: still don't know which one I'll finish first. Anyone have any preferences?

let the beast free!

The second one is very dramatic! The only thing I can think to add would be a trail of destruction in the wake of the tornado, nice work!

The second image is much better. I had a thought while going to pay the rent. The farmlands look good. They need some roads and access lanes. Also, here in the USA anyway, farm fields tend to have straight, squarish borders. This is for two reasons, land purchases, and effective equipment usage. The large tractors and harvesters do not work well in small fields. They do not turn very sharply either.

Thank you for reading my farming lesson of the day. :-X

The Beast up close .... a bit noisy though.

woah! very good!
just need some more "stormy" skies above and around it; search for some supercell images, they will give you a lot of ideas about the clouds that normally surrounds a tornado.

keep up the (very) good work!

FrankB

Thanks!
I know supercells, but not all hoses come with a supercell.
I've tried to make one once, but frankly I could not mimic the light scattering needed for it.

Attached a b&w version.

Beautiful B&W, Frank!
Yeah, there are indeed some non-supercell tornadoes (landspouts).
In fact, matching supercell lighting and shaping conditions in TG should be an really hard work, but a cumulonimbus base with just some few rotation features may not be that impossible...?

Aside from that, excellent work you are developing here; the tornado shape and texture is near to realistic!

Cheers!
