It might be a matter of taste. Both, the cliffs and the mud part look insanely good, if you take them separately, but to me they still don't fit scalewise.. I always have the impression that the cliff is a miniature. But maybe it's just my impression...

Killer work here.
I can also see the scale issue...

Still in this version? I don't see it, but if you all do, it must be me.

This one is waaaay better. Only the boulders look a bit like pebbles. It might look better without them. I think...

Yes great update. Agree with the boulders.

Maybe less and closer to the cliffs, I'll try.

This one is way better. Not a fan of the rig but that is immaterial to the quality of the image.

I needed something to compare scale with, but I could think of something else maybe. Gulls, more trees, lighthouse...

These guys won't help much  ;)

That mud is so realistically gooey, you would certainly sink right in. I suppose scaled down to 1/10th it is just too tight and loses all your wonderful detail. I agree it doesn't fit but I have not seen a reference, so you could be spot on.

Cliff is another masterpiece.

Sorry, you posted twice since I saw the latest. This is better mud. :)

How about one of your historical ships all rotted away with just the "bones" of the ship showing. Or you could do a petrified forest, just the stumps maybe.

I had one of my bony shipwrecks in, but it was pretty small in comparison to the cliff, so hard to see. Maybe I put it back in, but you can't really know what size it is. Got a ruin now, but still experimenting with better cliff textures/displacements.

Dune

Updated without the rig, but a ruin instead. Rockface is no good, but I might replace by the rocks of the second render. In that one I tried an arch like Hannes did to see whether I got the shadow issue... but I didn't. Just all normal. But I bent this sphere down, so maybe it's worse if you bend sideways....



Dune

Nice refs, thanks. I may have the sea coming in again, but my main point is a more appropriate cliff.

Very nice! I really like the color variation you have in your cliff surface; it's very natural looking.
