Hi,


Started on another project.

I know the mountain needs some attention. It looks cartoony now, but I've been focusing on the foreground.
The mountain is created with Gaia.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Excellent start a few refinements and you're there.

Very nice and natural foreground. Superb foliage coverage.
I suggest to put some flowers around.

Dune

Great. The only thing I can think of is more clustered low shrub, not as random as now. Placement of other stuff is very good, IMO.

Nice WIP.
Did you play with the haze? The mountain looks kinda close-small.

sjefen

Thanks guys.
I'll work with your suggestions  :)

What Dune said would be my advice as well, and maybe some tweaking on the mountain. Great start!

Love the foreground here. Nice shrub distribution and rocks all look very natural. Would a less direct sun angle give you better modeling/shadows on the mountain and clouds? Just a thought.

Ditto...

improvements for sure but what's up with the bark's mapping on the foreground tree?

Not sure which I prefer entirely, but I do think the foreground is improved in the latest. The background mountain in the original might be a little better to my eye, but I think you can get even better than both. :D

Bobby, I would imagine it's something like a Bristlecone Pine, and their bark/trunk just naturally looks like that:

Very cool, I'd never seen an actual one and now I see what's happening...this must be Bob's Bristlecone Pine then?

Dune

Foreground is much better now, though I miss the nice old trunk. I agree with Oshyan about the far mountain. And the low clouds are great, though the high cloud lacks a bit of depth. It's all very cool too (ozone factor?).
