View Full Version : Misty Mountains

19th Feb 2008, 01:40 PM
A misty mountain. I'm planning on adding some architecture to it eventually, but for now it's just a scenic vista.

I'm really plussed about this one. Though I can tell it's 3D it's very well done. I like the mist and fog and subtle lighting.

This looks great :)

I should also mention it's using Vue Xstream.

How did you do the mist??? metaclouds or just a fog/haze combo?

19th Feb 2008, 03:47 PM
Pretty darn good. With the sun at that angle though you might have more yellow in the sunlight. Also, there doesn't seem to be any global lighting... there should be a little at least. :D

D..n nice!!

fog/haze combo. It actually renders pretty dang fast too. Just a standard atmo. Tried some GI but it did not look at all good. I might try to set up an occlusion pass to comp into it. Might help a bit.

Nice work on a challenging subject matter. The thing that strikes me as the most CG-ish about it is the purplish bits of, I'm assuming, rock showing through on the bottom right side.

Cool work, and ambitious :D

You seem to have nailed what always kills me. And that is the scale of the vegetation in the ecosystem. I always make it either to small or to big and it throws the sense of scale off on the whole thing.

That is a beautiful picture. It needs a sinister looking castle sitting on the top of the rear most peak.

I could just see that with a nice castle or eastern monestary :D I really like environment work.

Cool stuff, front page for you sir!

Oh there will be a castle. I'm currently modeling it. :)

20th Feb 2008, 02:43 PM
Wow! This is really nice. First thing that came to mind when I saw this was the valley leading to Shangri-La. :)

Holy Crap! That is AWESOME dude! :)

Is that Vue6 BTW?

Gorgeous! I really love this image.

Very cool! It's a beautiful render.

Beautiful work Andy! Great atmosphere and composition. It begs for a vertical monastery or castle dramatically winding down the face of the mountain.

amazing work there my friend, some dof and stuff and it'd pass as a photo

3rd Mar 2008, 01:14 AM
damn! What program did you say you used?

3rd Mar 2008, 12:26 PM
First off let me say that is is incredible. Don't think I could pull anything like this off at this point. My only crit is that furthest mountain there. Something about it just looks off. Not sure, but the contrast between shadow and light seems off to me.

This is Vue, right? What version? I so love this image. It has a great feeling. You can feel the atmosphere.

4th Mar 2008, 09:59 AM
Vue 6 yes.

Thanks for all the positive comments.

20th Mar 2008, 03:04 PM
Wow, this look very good!
I don't see any defaults, this is really a nearly-perfect image
