I kind of like the shape of the rock actually, but definitely agree it's a bit too green. Make the green patchier, ideally the green areas should have a slightly different texture than the rock too (i.e. rougher, or finer roughness or something).

damn, I don't have the same rock as i did in that last pic, did alot of tweaking today.
I should have made a backup of it, oh well, it shouldn't be that hard to get a similar shape

I did make a clip of both of those rocks though.

I would just use a displacable cube and some PF's, I think you can make more believable rocks then, not so 'crumbly' (sorry). You still have a day, hurry!

Zairyn Arsyn

hmm... with the displaceable cube objects i find the rocks to be too square like imo.
ive been messing with PFs and redirects and haven't been satisfied with the results

This might be a little controversial, but since the deadline is tomorrow, maybe just get rid of the rock instead, and rearrange the heathers a bit?

I saw your last picture in the facebook terragen galleries, I think that the rocks are ok maybe they need to be a little bit darker, and especially the big one is still a bit too greeny. You can also try to create a rock starting from a sphere adding some displacement with a warped PF , especially good for lava style rocks. Also i think that instead the purple flowers i will use the same but red or blue. I don't know if this can help, hope you find some advice in it. :)

the large rock is a sphere actually, all the rocks are spheres.
i'm aware of the of the colors needing to be darker, thought i fixed that
i could change the tint of flowers too.

ok, reagarding the colour: could be that is due to my monitor quality, so maybe other people view it in another way. I want to see it finished! ;)

You are probably going to want to strangle me, but I must say I liked the prior rock setup better. Something with the whitish rocks providing a nice contrast to the greyish background. I concede that these rocks may fit the subject better though....

no need to worry, i made a clip file of the original rocks before i made all those changes, yes i like them a lot too.

Oshyan

Perhaps a late comment, but yes I liked the previous rocks too. I felt they just needed a little tweak here and there, not so much a total redo. So since you still have them, I say load 'em up and see if you can refine a little (or not). The other thing is the whole image now has a yellow-ish tint to it on my monitors. Is that intentional? Also, though some said the flowers were too saturated before, I find them a tad on the dull side now... I know, too many conflicting opinions, hehe. In the end, go with your gut!

Dune

My last comment would be the 'puckledness' of the rock. I think rocks lying in all this weather may be worn smoother, at least partially. But I don't know the real thing in Iceland.
