Pebbles by sanosoke Pebbles by sanosoke
Hi everyone.
This one is not completely new. I made it about 2 weeks ago but never posted it here. I'm really happy how this turned out, so I thought you all should see it. Basically started as a water/underwater overlay test but turned into this.
Thanks for looking, and I appreciate any comment or favs you will give.
Sacha

P.S. all created in Terragen, slight postwork for sharpening, resize and color correction in PS

Great colours, I especially love the water. Question though, do you have the registered or free version of terragen? I'm wondering if the options of the two differ, because I cant seem to get the water the way you made it (I have the free version). Can you give me tips on how to create water like that? Thanks :)

Hi, I use the registered version of TG, and although the 'options' aren't really that much better with the registered version, for things like Water or Overlays, being able to render big makes all the difference. If you want a good example, take a look at my 2 Venezuela renders. The first one in my gallery is done with the unregistered TG, and the second is basically the same (some little differences, but not enough for it to change THAT much) but with the registered TG.
My tip for this render is, however, that I used an underwater Pebble overlay, which is partially why the water looks like this. Also, finding great landforms under the water helps a lot too.
It's hard for me to help too much without specific questions or issues. Maybe if you could give me an example of your water that you're having trouble with I can help :)
Thanks a lot for the kind comment

I actually just figured out how to get the water the way Ive wanted it to, I thought I'd give it one more shot before I bugged you about it and it worked haha, but thanks to you for your great inspirational work, wouldnt have tried changing my water without looking at your art :)

I love that vibrancy - fits well with the entire piece. The underwater overlay looks fantastic, as does everything else in this piece :)

Wow, very nice job. Lots of comments on the water, but what really impesses me is the detail in the land. How on earth did you create such a detailed landscape? Was it in Terragen's land generation program, or do you use manual editing or complimentary programs like World Builder?

And, like usual, the textures and colors are impressive additions to it. Great job, landing a favorite from me :)

Hey, thanks a lot for this comment. This lanscape is actually one I downloaded a while ago, I've forgotten who it was made by, but I think it was made in Terraformer. One thing I've never gotten a handle of was making terrains. I never use the Terragen terrain program because it's terrible. It's tough because I use a mac and there are no 3rd party terrain programs supports.
Anyway, good luck to you, and I can give you some links to good websites for terrains if you would like.
Thanks

Oh, would I like it! The Terragen generation is suitable for playing aroud with it, but I find the World Machine terrains to be much more detailed, though I haven't gotten the knack of it yet. I'd love to see new, highly detailed terrains and their programs if you have the websites on hand.

Well, Geocontrol is a great new program. Just look that up on google. I don't know about Terraformer, but apparently that is good at some things. Worth a try. There's one called Terrabrush, but I think that's mainly good for more Alien landscapes, not so realistic.
As for Terrain websites, it's best to go to personal websites which you can find all around (christianfly.com is a good one, then you can look for Hillrunner, joshus_hund and a bunch of other people. . .sorry, I don't have the sites on hand. . .Also try Buzzzzzart.com has a couple great terrains)
But, importantly, go to Renderosity.com and check out the free section. Has some really good terrains
Hope that helped at all

Vibrant! Perhaps too vibrant. The colours are soo strong, the piece is having trouble sitting in my mental eye. The texture is superb, though. Nice work on that.

sorry. I personally like the 'vibrancy' of the piece. I was going for an oversaturated look. Sometimes you just need a lot of color. . .think of it as impressionistic. Anyway thanks for the comment

The only negative point I have is that I find it oversaturated.

For the rest I adore it to pieces. I love the texture and the water!

I saw this one in renderosity :P and I just love the two versions.. can you share this water settings? :giggle:
Reply
:iconsanosoke:
sanosoke Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2006
hard to share, because so much about how the water looks has to do with the terrain shape, the lighting, and here the underwater overlay.
I'll see what I can do though

:iconsanosoke:
sanosoke Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2006
piece of advice though. Try keeping the water color black, and then play with the transparency color, and not much transparency setting, and then keep the reflection high, with the reflection curve very low (I think this was about 200% and 15%). I always use a very low sun reflection (usually 1-4%) with a spread of over 30.
Hope that helps. . .water is all about playing and finding the settings that work with the terrain and POV.

Heh, very nice, I like the transition from the underwater rocks to the darker spots ( weeds perhaps? ). Very good ^_^

dark spots are deeper waters. . .just has to d with the terrain shape
