Sierra Nevada

Geocontrol + Vue

23+ Billion Polygons and an 80+ Hr render. Luckily Vue has the ability to resume renders (although it did mess up my indirect lightning). I took probably a couple of hours to setup the scene, until I started doing some renders. It was worth the wait!

I painted the ecosystem (which was pretty fun). What took the longest, besides the render, was probably getting the right distance with the camera to get a "realistic" shot.

Onto the next project!

Oh, wow, the trees might be a little bit rough (difficult to say, though, since the siye of the drawing is rather small), but the mountain looks perfect to me!

Thanks! The main mountain was the one created in Geocontrol. I then imported a TIFF map (generated in Geocontrol) into Vue. I used a few other terrains as "fillers" to so I could place/paint the ecosystem exactly how I wanted it.

This was rendered with an i7-860 CPU with 8GB of RAM, that was back a year ago. I'm sure there's ways of improving the render time, and optimizing the image... need to work on that! :)
