I like it. I was curious if there was a way for you to get the sky to touch the ground in some places. I mean where the clouds are right there on the ground, but sorta distributed like how you mix your plants.

What I mean is I think the scene is good, but if you could make some paths through it that are formed by light and shadow and clouds, then I think a pretty place could potentially become sorta mystical/magical. SO where you can see all the way back in a few places but only so far in others due to mist/cloud.

And then also vary your populations like you did in the last contest, which was pretty excellent. TO me this scene is largely going to be about tons of little details. But I am just speculating at what you have in your mind, cause its fun. ;D

I could probably make another local cloud to make the sky touch the ground. or try the cloud offset functions too... i haven't made much progress with those though.

What do you mean by vary populations? the sizes/distribution, color tint, or was that something else?

i had considered a path... its just a bit tedious. i had decided against it. but i guess i might still have time.

You've made some very nice progress Zlain.

I just mean don't let it stay so perfect and nice everywhere. And for the path, I meant just for the viewers eyes, not a real path. More about depth and blocking with light and shadow. But I know that can be very hard to control in TG. More about adding emotion than terrain.

just thoughts that may be of use to you or not.  :)
It has been eaten.

Dune

A small path is not that hard on this terrain, just add a warped soft simple shape on location, and use it to mask out grass and mask in some dirt and stones.

I probadly should have posted this before
here's the partial inspiration, the storm clouds was my own idea.

Great inspiration, so you need some blue flowers, that would really make a difference, I think.

I know, I got carried away making this I will have some more flowers in the next iteration i post.

You must be pleased with this addition; very good. Changing the color to a light purple/blue may not be too difficult, maybe you might give it a try.

Dune

Yes!!
