Bobby's link is your key to scaling, grab the stickman or the grid. These put everything into perspective

Okay, here is my first full render based on the tutorial, which was absolutely perfect, by the way (the tutorial, NOT the render.. :) ). I still don't know squat yet but this tut gave me something that I can read and re-read to understand why I did each step in the process.

Stone color is somewhat different but that's cool. I can always work on color selection another time. This is just about the process.

The only way this could have been better is if there were a path or a trail in the tutorial. For the life of me I can't figure out how to make those.

Anyway, here it is...

Thanks archonforest. It's a jumping off point that's for sure.

It's quite easy to paint a simple path with a Paint shader which can be used as a reverse mask to exclude terrain colours, and a positive mask for texturing the path.

I thought I responded to this but didn't see anything posted..hmmmm.. Anyway, I am learning my way through that. Somehow I missed several great tutorials on that during my searches of the forums and internet. Oshyan pointed me in the right direction.

Appreciate the feedback.
