2018 Back to work
« on: February 01, 2018, 12:06:41 AM »
Hey, I was not very present on this forum for a long while. I wanted to say that I am very impressed with what people are doing with Terragen 4 but for me I will stick to Terragen 3.
This is the first render I did this year. I was very focused on the island and not so much about the background of this scene. As always, feedback is more than welcome. Oh and I did use a plug-in to create this scene it is " Fractal procedural erosion shader public beta" by blinkfrog .

Welcome back and good testing in the last 2, but I prefer where you were heading with the Island series myself which is already a striking image and well worth developing.

Great use of the erosion, but I would mask the stones; maybe inverted the erosion map on stones layer? Most of us are figuring out this masking bit with the erosion now. I don't know if the share file for the plugin announcement has any more info yet or not.

You'd have to work on some sort of beach (rocky, wet sand, debris lines, foam...)

Looks cool in motion! I find the lighting overall to be a bit drab, but that may be intended, and again the scene in motion is nice.

I find myself agreeing with Oshyan re: the lighting, maybe a small bump up in exposure would allow for more details showing up. But over all a nice developing scene.
