Zaai's Experimental Rock v4
« on: December 13, 2011, 12:53:38 PM »
this render project makes me hungry...

this is a combination of InkyDigit's 3D perlin base .tgd, and FrankB's wavy terraces or strata .tgc, along with extra surface modifications and some redirect shaders.

C&C welcomed

Very cool and well-done effect. Though it looks quite "fanciful", I would not be that surprised to learn that something like this exists somewhere. What sets it apart in terms of execution is the smooth but clear variation between colors *and* textures. It makes the layering very natural-seeming, as if one material is say sand stone, the other shale or something.
