Sundown by gucken Sundown by gucken
Sundown

yes, what an original title


well, I was pretty much bored the last days, so I did, what I always do, when I am bored.. I just noobed some stuff in terragen, trying to create something I like.
when i fooled around with some atmosphere settings, i finally got something like this.
and so for the first time, when i just played around in terragen, i even used the outcome for a new project.
so i browsed sxc.hu to find some nice stuff to add, and so i came to these palm trees and the nice little birds

im somehow proud of this piece, because theres no planet, no exciting nebula or anything like that
- just a nice calming sunset.

well, some may say, that the quality of the water is bad or something like that, but im pretty much satisfied with it, as I am a rookie when it comes to terragen


so here are the technical details:
original size: 4500x3375
render time: 12 hours
inspiration: =Burning-Liquid
stocks used: (for palm trees and birds) sxc.hu
socks changed: approximately 3
programmes used: terragen v0.9x, photoshop cs2
wacom intuos3 a5
time spent: well, at least 12 hours, ... ...


here are some different sizes:

1600x1200
1280x1024
1024x768

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
I like the birds flying away from the sun too, and the stars are starting to come out, and there's just to much to say or what I love about this pic,
It's just amazingly, beautiful

Oh yes, noob work, yes yes...absolutely noob...so, what about me instead, an howler monkey put in front of Terragen? :P

Really nice, that water doesn't seem like terragen at all... and btw...how the hell did you cut out between the trees leaves? Stock with plain backrground?

Really nice work :D

Ah...will I ever stop faving you and taenaron :hump:....

hehe, about the trees: well those were photos with real background; sky, sun etc,.. ive used the extractfilter of photoshop itself and added some leaves through painting, where the filter totally messed up

Hmmm...instead of "sundown" you could call it "Cascade" just a thought n_n
Looks very pretty, I havn't quite figured out how to do stuff with the sun in terragen yet ^_^
