Did a overnight render to see how things looked with better detail and AA.
render time 5:36:55s, detail .85 AA8
a large amount of instances have been edited.


C&C welcome.

Looking good Lane, maybe the pink flowers 'pop' a little too much for my taste, maybe drop the saturation of these a little?... Super picky nitpicking!
Lovely render all the same
:)

Dune

Very beautiful. I agree with Inky about the saturation. And what filter do you use, a soft one? I am not extremely keen on that hero rock, it is a bit contorted, and I dont know if rocks like that are found in Iceland. But I'm nitpickin' too  ;)

The AA filter was Cubic b-spline

changed the diffuse back to the default, it looks better now i think.

I'm thinking I'll lower the distortion/contortion and make the cover the top side of the rock and darken the diffuse color of the rock.

Sounds good. And, if you have time, maybe see if you can make a convincing 3D moss population on top of them... :D Maybe use a population of very small, short-bladed Grass Clumps.

so that works with sphere objects?

I still prefer using the NWDA Walli grass clumps on the smaller rock in the file with the Distribution shader..

Dune

I've made some 'real' 3D grass years ago when we didn't have the rotation feature. Maybe come in handy, though I don't use them anymore. They adapt without setting rotation and extra compute normals. You will have to color them through a transform shader for world variation.

Zairyn Arsyn

I decided to disable the larger distorted rock (I liked actually, but I agree with the comments about it)
and decided to use the other smaller one next to it (moved it to where the first one was) i tweaked the nodes a lot and couldn't get it to look right.

another render coming soon.

Interesting, but feel a bit too "vorony" to me. Maybe you should mix more fractals for the displacement. And about the colour, it is looking very green/cyan for a rock. What are your references for this rock ?
The groundcover vegetation is looking good.
