Terragen - Erat: leans on books from a well known fantasy writer named david eddings. For fans the books are as good as the well known tolkien works about middle-earth.
Erat is a part of a land called sendaria. A neat, practical country that was founded years ago by the duchess of erat, a notable lady of wacite arendish nobility. sendaria was the place where king belgarion spent his childhood and formed a solid basis for his character.
To the pic: The rendering time for the basic pics took about 10hrs in a res. of 3200x2400. The post work in photoshop took about 5 days - with short timeouts to eat, sleep and to find ideas - all that stuff ;). I'm really pleased with the result - it's definitely under my personal top 3 terragen pieces.
