Ah, you're in too. Great. Needs work, less haze for one. Good luck, Bastien!

I think you should darken the textures and make more distinction between grass and rock. I would also add some lateral displacements (PF, billows or perlin, stretched by Y perhaps: 50/200/10, displaced lateral or normal by 20m or so) after a compute terrain and add some strata broken up by a PF (billows, sizes 50/200/10 or so) after that. Work on the coastline too, darken soft area just above water level by color adjust on a surface shader.
And put camera where I put the arrow for a more dramatic view, perhaps.

Just some ideas....

Already great terrain distribution and displacement. The adjustments suggested will really make this even better.

A good beginning. Reminds me of large ship canals, Suez and Panama. Try some alternate viewpoints.

Now that's a different approach! Looks interesting! Like a canal indeed, dug out from the rocky terrain.

Maybe dial back the lighting intensity a bit. Nice work -- my favorite so far, great overall shapes and camera angle.
Title: Re: Bastien Challenge

Really good rock shapes and an excellent pov but very bright and hazy.

The one before.
Title: Re: Bastien Challenge
Post by: Dune on March 01, 2018, 03:43:25 am
I like this one. You certainly have a distinct style, very consistent, and recognizable as a Bastien. No realism whatsoever, but good in an artistic way.
Title: Re: Bastien Challenge
Post by: Hannes on March 01, 2018, 10:28:08 am
Yes, somehow stylish. There are quite some flipped displacements, but I like the look of the material.

Honest? It's a typical Bastien and very arty, but not very realistic, so...

Hello Bastien, I find your reaction curious. Dune does not criticize your image, but you recall a rule of the contest that the images will be judged by their photo-realism.

Title: Re: Bastien Challenge
Post by: Hannes on April 06, 2018, 10:12:40 am
So the reason why you offended Ulco is that you think there is no one who helps you make your image realistic?  ??? ??? ???
No one but you can make your image realistic. Do you think we all had a teacher to improve our skills? It's learning by doing for all of us.
You might have noticed, that if you have a specific question, you'll always get an answer from someone in the forum, but the question "how can I make my image realistic?" can't be answered. There is no "realistic render"-button.

Maybe you had a bad day, or whatever, but this is not the way we should communicate here.

Hannes are faster ...

Hi Bastien,
Maybe nobody explains to you how to make the image more realistic but no member in this forum has this responsibility. Sometimes some have tips or advice sometimes no. Dune is the one who gives a lot of advice, but free to do it when and how he wants, he is not at our service.

To make realistic images there are his tutorials that I think excellent.

Certes...Je suis désolé Ulco, et vous autres, j'ai pas eu une bonne semaine, mais, j'essaie de faire bien réaliste mes images, qui
me tiens à coeur mais j'en suis désolé de m'être comporter comme ça. Pour moi, vous êtes tous mes ami(e)s.

Et, ça va être juste pour faire des images de rendus pour le concours, il reste une semaine.

Certainly ... I'm sorry Ulco, and you other, I did not have a good week, but, I'm trying to make my images real,
I'm keen on my heart but I'm sorry to behave like that. For me, you are all my friends.

And, it's going to be fair to make pictures for the contest, there's a week left.
Title: Re: Bastien Challenge
Post by: Dune on April 06, 2018, 12:44:26 pm
Thanks Bastien, it's alright. You have a certain very specific style as an artist, but it's not realism, and it needn't be. That is not bad, certainly not! But realism is something completely different, and if you want to produce realistic renders, you'd have to follow some of the tutorials.
Title: Re: Bastien Challenge
Post by: cyphyr on April 06, 2018, 01:35:10 pm
Hey Bastien
I hope you don't mind but there's something I have always wanted to ask you about your renders.
You always have a really (REALLY) wide angle on your camera, much more than one would use usually as a photographer.
I wonder if this is your intent (it's a great stylistic element/use if so).

Are you working on a laptop? If so it's VERY hard to place cameras easily.
Are you using the magnifying glass in the navigation window to move in and out of your scene?

If so then do you know that this dose NOT move the camera but changes its zoom factor instead.

Please don't take this as a negative critique but trying to understand where your unique style comes from.

Cheers
