Calm Before The Storm by esk6a Calm Before The Storm by esk6a
This is my first attempt to create a realistic landscape in vue and Im quite happy with the result. :) However, I dont really like the clouds, but I couldnt achieve more realistic look and also they render damn slow and I lost my patience.
So I call this finished.

C&C are most welcome!

Done in Vue, the mountains were done in World Machine, minor postwork in PS.

Enjoy!

I actually really like the clouds! But I think I understand the look you were trying to achieve.
Personally I would do some post-work and make the grass in the foreground a more yellow green, is teems like it would balance it more and look more realistic.

Very nice work!

Thank you! :)
Hmm, I think you are right about the grass. By default they were even more saturated so I just lowered it, but yeah, moving the colors a bit towards yellow would not hurt.

Damn right about the render times!!!! :D Thats partially why I stopped using Vue myself! Waiting like 20hrs for something is not really my forte! Really nice looking piece man!

I do agree that the clouds over top of the Mountain look a little odd.... Maybe a little more variation with the clouds would have given a better result? Also, the snow on the right side of the mountain "Avalanche?" looks a little stretched for some reason. Other than those minor gripes, I believe that the composition of the piece is excellent!
I really dig that rock with the various mosses growing on it! Also the positioning and overall shape of the mountain is excellent! Great job man! :D

My mind is boggled with how this stuff works. I'd like to take a crack at 3D, but I have no idea how to do it or understand how you did this/what's your workflow. I guess I gotta stick to straight PS painting for now haha. This is really serene though, awesome to look at. Great job!

Believe it or not I started to use Vue 6 months ago. Its quite easy to understand and theres a lot of tutorials on the web covering every topic. Also you dont have to model anything in vue. If you ever want to start 3Ding I definitely recommend Vue.

Tempting. It's basically environments, right? Would it render a planet in any way? (I could always paint one if not I guess, but it's hard to get that sphere look in a 2D painting.)

Yes you can! Take a look on this one [link] The closeup planet was done and rendered in Vue.
Also all the solar system planets are available in vue, you can put them in the sky or whatever with any size.

Oh wow. This is amazing. It's damn near photorealistic. If not for the sky and the clouds I think you could have fooled me - though I'm not a visual artist, so someone with a trained eye would catch "errors" (if any) more readily.

About the sky - I'd say the gradient in the color is too strong. Could do for an early morning or an evening sky, but the light looks like it's noon or close to it, so it would be more even. The clouds are off in that they seem too dense to be so finely grained? And they fade out too abruptly.

But overall it's definitely wow. :)

Thank you! I appreciate your feedback. I dont think im gonna make a scene with clouds for now, they seem hard to master because they render damn slow. :P
