Terragen - Erat

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.

So... happy viewing... =)

*by request here a link to the terragen renderings without any post work. for those who are interested...

Just an artistic note, an auburn-ed sky due to cloud cover and time of day DOES NOT cast a bright white reflection as seen in the water here. Otherwise, this is fairly artistically noteworthy even though the smoke/fog effect in the hilly areas obscure much needed details.

Just heard about this piece from your interview on 3D Art Direct.  The Belgariad and the Malloreon are among my favorite stories.  Though this isn't quite how I imagined Erat, this is still, none the less, very beautiful, and I think the Dutchess would approve.  :D

WOW, very nice, i have seen this picture around on the net, but to find the original artist, that's great.

I my self am keen when it comes to terragen and related type programs, is there any place that you would recommend tutorials for terragen so that i may make pictures like that one?
