New pic for Shadowclasper in the RoD project. If you want any changes let me know.

I really like the earlier stuff, but the last one seems a bit unrefined. The lighting looks like you just added it in paint. I can see the lighting effects you tried on (is that water?), but the flash should extend further out. I like the clouds, but I feel like the shine from the moon is off, and those clouds in the front should be at least slightly illuminated. Don't take this the wrong way, just trying to give you some constructive criticisms.

Yeah, I was actually pretty unhappy with the lightning also, but I don't have the tools I need to make a lightning object myself, so this was the best I found. As for the moon, I forgot to turn off its atmosphere (it's actually a planet).

I'll keep working on it after my finals are done.

Perfect! Thanks odo ^^

Only thing I'd have liked to have seen are some of the massive iron slabs that get shoved out of the ground due to tectonic and volcanic activity, but sense that would probably mean there's a volcano near by :P yeah, not going to ask you to put that much extra time into it when this pic represents what the planet mostly looks like ^^ massive seas of iron and other ferous metal sands, partially oxidized, while clouds block out the sky except for a few places and lightning strikes coming down :3

In the last image if you look carefully you can see the places the other photos were taken. The first was just off screen on the left top cliff, the second and third were taken just behind the cliff on the bottom right, and the fourth was taken in front of the thin ridge and point on the bottom center.
HOLY CRAP! IT'S THE DESERT AREA FROM MONSTER HUNTER!

No, seriously, it does look like it.

Anyways, you've got me interested in terragen now. I love how all the desert plateaus came out looking so damn realistic. It literally looks like you took a picture with your camera.

Thanks Tali, always good to see more people get interested in this kind of thing.

A couple more for the RoD project, these are preliminary for Wargamer. I went with a 16:9 aspect ration on these, since it's more panoramic.

For anybody interested I would like to mention the planetside and ashundar forums. The planetside forums can be accessed at their website and Ashundar is located at terragen.org. These have a variety of things from discussion boards to help topics to actual clip files with people's work. My last few pictures have been (IMO) getting better due mainly to me taking a look at others' work.

No actual update as school's beginning to catch up to me again, but I wanted to announce that I've moved all my work into Spoilers in my first post. I won't be removing them from each post in here, but they will all be collected in the first post from now on.

Did you purchase Terragen 2? Or did you download a trial or something? If the latter, can you say where you downloaded it? I'm interested in trying my hand at this.

The Planetside Website has all the documentation for Terragen 2 as well as the free version for download.

The free version has some limits on render quality and size, so you won't be able to make wallpaper sized things, but everything else works exactly the same. I would suggest downloading the free version from their website as opposed to purchasing it or illegally downloading the full version. It takes a bit of getting used to so don't purchase it straight off, and someone on the Planetside or Ashundar forums said that a copy they illegally downloaded was infected.
