Title: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on February 03, 2018, 07:37:42 PM
Zairyns wip cliffs.
I haven't been on here in a while, so I'm back now.

I was having some issues with stretched displacement on vertical terrain or near vertical terrain, which I thought might have been resolved, but apparently it wasn't resolved
(you can't really tell in this iteration).

Nice to see you back bud! I look forward to seeing this progress for certain.

I'm more pleased with this version.

If you need C&C; break up the strata and add some versions of it.

Sorry for the delay. :(

I haven't done any new work with Terragen in a while,
I've been through several different versions/variations, along with some setbacks, of this project and haven't been completely satisfied with them.

Nice mood on v2-1.

Agreed, very arty, almost like a woodcut or similar.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 05, 2018, 10:19:35 PM
here's a higher res. version of v2-1
working on some displacement details on the lower areas of the cliff.

Possibly the most alien image so far or as Ulco says, "very arty" (which is a good thing imo). Great atmosphere.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 07, 2018, 01:03:42 PM
results from last night,
added details to the lower sections.
*the surfacing (color) didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, I;ll be fixing that.

Progress continues.

I like the last one. The picture remember me some rocks formation (not the color) des Iles de la Madeleine! Eroded by wind and sand.

Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 12, 2018, 02:42:41 AM
some changes:
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Jo Kariboo on March 13, 2018, 03:34:19 AM
The last is definitely better. There is something that seems a little mysterious in the lower right, as if you could see through a layer of stone.

this?
(see image)
if so, that's just the Intersect Underlying (favor depressions).
(which I turned off in the next interation)
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 14, 2018, 04:01:33 AM
I turned off the intersect underlying.
I think I like this version a bit more.

Yes exactly, I prefer without this form. For me the version v3-6 is better.

Haven't been able to get into the forums for at least a day since the server-redirect hiccup.
latest.

Beware that the stretched holes are not in line with the strata. You need to rotate those (if you need them synced, that is).
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 18, 2018, 03:29:54 AM
replaced/changed surfacing and displacement on the lower parts of the cliff.
thinking of adding a cloud layer, nothing complex though.

Good progress. Now for some wet coastal line....
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 20, 2018, 06:16:58 AM
with clouds.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 23, 2018, 11:26:09 PM
added some reflections for areas around the waterline
the rocks (or boulders) are fake stones with displacements and texturing.
liking the boulders.

This is turning into a very worthy render...loving the slightly cool atmo...still no icebergs so it's nit frigid but not arm really either....
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on March 24, 2018, 10:29:04 PM
after looking at the node network, it turns out those rocks were just created with a secondary masked pf terrain. turns out the fake stones were disabled, apparently.

The white/blueish areas are mineral deposits.
There will be no icebergs.

changed the surfacing on the boulders
also changed elevation setting on the lower strata layers.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip

I like these iterations more.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on April 03, 2018, 08:06:29 PM
new iteration-
lost power this morning, good thing this finished before that happened.
Title: Re: Zairyn's cliff wip
Post by: Zairyn Arsyn on April 05, 2018, 03:05:48 AM
toned down the visibility of the 3rd strata layer
now we have ice cliffs :)
