A bit late to the party this time. I couldn't get started or inspired ... strange times indeed.

Nearly there, a couple more elements to add but this is pretty much what I will be submitting.

Good luck everyone :)

That looks really nice! Though only thing I could suggest is maybe adjust the trees that are popping through the wings of the ship. Unless it was lowering down straight over them, I don't know, but it did catch my attention and I wondered how much physical branching is inside the ship.

God rays look really nice but I kinda wish I could see into the forest better.


Cool render, and nice concept. Good luck to you too.



Looks really good Richard. The only thing for me is the telegraph poles scale in relation to the horse and caravan. I didn't notice the tree sticking through the ship model.

Good luck.


Yeah the poles are gone now and I have swapped out the ship and a few other refinements.
Rendering a 1080p now and I'll try for a higher res if time allows.

Poles look like the right height, just kinda really skinny. Depth seems weird across the street with the caravan and horse.

Can't wait to see the new version.

There is a lot of software mastery here. I like the POV and the contrast between the carriage and the city. I think it's a good idea to remove the poles.


Ok this is basically my final, I don't thing there is time for any more re-renders.
I may (probably not!) push the render layers about a bit.

VW Mini Bus is from DAZ3D
Gypsy Waggon and Horse are from HiveWire3D
Milano is from Sketch Fab
Trees are From X-frog and SpeedTree
Rocks are from Quixel Megascan
Flock of Birds is from Hannes (file sharing area on this forum)
Everything else is by myself.

Probably sit on this for a couple of hours and then upload this evening.

Yes, it's better without the poles. I don't know about adding VW Mini Bus. It's just a personal impression but I already found excellent the contrast with the carriage and the rest futuristic. The sky and the light are excellent! Good luck!

The image is wonderful, but i can't finish to figure out the contrast you created with the carriage and rest of the image, ahg! is just my own foolishness, good luck richard!
Hmmm, what version of Terragen does God use?


I think I liked it better without the bus as well. You made it a bit too 'busy', IMHO. But the light is still terrific!


Wow... a really unusual collection of objects. :o Actually, a parade of travellers one might say - I like it!
