Mix of Landscapes

In this image I wanted to mix different types of landscapes. I think I was able to create an interesting contrast between the brown hill on the foreground and the valley in the background. The orange rocks are not meant to look natural or anything.

Isolated Building

Isolated Building 001


This is another exercise in designing a building from scratch and in placing it in a landscape.

I learned that for the creation of a realistic looking landscape it is very important to mix different kinds of terrain and colours.

For the lighting I first chose the height and direction of the sun with only the Vray Sun and the use of Vray RT for fast feedback. After that I added an HDRi with the source of the light pointed in the same direction as the sun. I also added a little bit of chiaroscuro by letting the sun shine through round holes in a plane above the scene.

Adding floors to the building was a good idea. It makes the building more believable and it adds a subtle layer of complexity.

This piece started as a further exploration of the possibilities of World Machine. Along the way, I decided to make a river with lava streaming from it and to let it shine it’s light upwards onto the building.
