Title: Mountain Meadow w Easyclouds...finally
Post by: bobbystahr on May 15, 2018, 12:16:56 AM
Got up my gumption and finally used EasyCloud in a scene..rendered faster than I thought it would from some previous tests. C&C welcome

Very nice! Yes, it seems all clouds in general are rendering a bit quicker these days.

Nice. Maybe some flowers would be nice. Have you tried Daniil's erosion on a scene like this? Very subtle streams would  be great too.

Yep! Very nice. I agree with some flowers like daisies and dandelions.
I like the little details like the small uncovered areas in the forground.

Thanks Ulco, and everyone else; I have considered some flowers but my computer seems to be having problems doing pops lately so I held back at 2 of your grasses and the trees. Honestly the erosion plugin after some original good success has given me very disappointing results so I passed on it this time. I don't seem to be 'grokking it anymore but I will give it a try later today.

Very moody, Bobby. I like the lighting very much. I know, you're colorblind a bit, but to me the green of the grass color is a bit too blueish and could use some color variation (tinted with a B/W-PF would be enough to my taste).

Thanks Hannes. Fiddled the grasses a bit and added some flowers as per Ulco's advice and dialed back the mist a bit to see the trees better...C&C welcome.

Looks nice, love the flowers in the field, though not sure if maybe their scale is too large?

Like the easy clouds, but man, every time I see them used it just reminds me overcast clouds that burn off in the morning, the really hazy mainly fog clouds. Very very soft and hazy.

pretty sure they're in scale to the grasses. Cosmos grow up to .75m , and the Rapeseed/Canola only slightly less.

I think it may be the way the hill rolls off out of sight on top of the bluff so I can't see the scale drop-off heading towards the trees. So I see the trees, and than just contrasting flowers on the top of the bluff in the foreground against the trees.

Much better. You could move one tree to the front. Right on top of that hill maybe. Add some small bushes around it.

I'd considered editing a couple forward, maybe I will later...got music on today.
