Tranquility by realillusions Tranquility by realillusions
Two contrasting scenes. A tumultous sky above a serene landscape. Between them, an eerie sense of calm comes over those whoe view it.


I think I'll use this in a spacescape, but I do like it as it is. Terrain is from....well, I don't remember. I had about ten that I was using, and edited them all beyond recognition. If you happen to recognize it, let me know. I'd like to know myself.

4 hours render time, no post-work aside from border, etc.

:boogie:

Edit: changed a few small things, nothing you'd probably notice. Sorry if it was in the 'ol message center again.

hmm, neat. just as you said, mate, serene and silent. it really has kind of spacelandscape look.
As for the feeling I get - it looks a bit ... godforsaken, without life, dead. Maybe a few creatures would hel - nothing too complicated, just a few brushes of birds or something.
another thing that would help is a river, perhaps on the left. And, to push the serenity effect to its climax, what about changing the sky to the more blue one, I mean "earth blue" with small white cuddly clouds, perhaps one or two cumulonimbus would do as well.
Still, great job you did. cool. :thumbsup:

I'm tired of seeing water and rock mountain renders - it is refreshing to see some green and a sky that was paid attention to :)

Iíve never commented on terrain art before, but this one caught my eye (it was in my message center for a long time). I love the colors of the sky and the way the seem to flow into each other. The mountains are gorgeous, especially one in the middle. Very tranquil indeed! :nod:
Looks like you have a gift to me ;p

Nice peice here. Awesome texturing. It seems that the sky and the terrain were rendered seperatly, but it still looks fantastic :nod: Great work man.

You're good ;) I did them seperately solely for time reasons. Wasn't sure how long until I'd have to evacuate for the hurricane, but I wanted at least part of it rendered before I left.
