I started creating 3D landscapes with various different demo softwares when i was 14-15 years old.
Main reason why 3D scenery caught my attention was that it adds nicely to my other hobby that is photography.
Finland is a beautiful country , but generally the scenery is pretty flat and repetitive. So with Terragen i can create any sort of landscape i want, mountains.. volcanos.. lakes.. You name it.
These images are mainly created using the softwares Terragen 3 and Photoshop cs6.
It takes anywhere between 5 hours to 5 days to create a picture like this. Sometimes i aim for realism, sometimes i feel like creating a pure fantasy scene.
Typical workflow with these pictures :
Inspiration -> Modeling the scenery in Terragen -> Rendering the scene over night -> Post-processing the picture in photoshop -> Submitting the photo to Deviantart.
..at the end of it all Jscenery 19 4
