Some forground. I want it to look more muddy...also a little boat on the shoreline micht be a nice touch.

A little bit of mud. I think it's coming along, I just bought the NDWA fake stones and hero rock pack so  will probably incorporate that into the forground ;)

This may be my last update before rendering my final image. As you can see I have added a boat to give a better sense of scale for the stones in the forground. The boat is a modified version of an object that I found at some freeware sight...I wish I could remember where since it had some nice models. The boat model came without any textures so all the color is done procedurally in TG2, I'm really happy with how it turned out.

The boat looks really good judging from the crop. I agree it adds a very nice sense of scale. Can't wait to see the full render!

This contest goeas a month longer than I thought it did so I'm back to working on my piece. The stones are the fake stones from the NDWA website, I need to tweak the bigger ones to either make them less dense or blend in more with the smaller stones...I also may choose to make the grass smaller and perhaps more dense. This version also uses some post processing (namely small touchup, curves and levels) that I am thinking of using for my submission.
