I can't work on this anymore... my brain might just leak out of my ears if i tried any harder. So here it is. Goodbye.
Getting a nice moon texture has probably been the most difficult thing in terragen i've ever had to do..... it seems easy, but it's a little devilish, and a lot of playing around with surface maps ensued. The space scene is similar style to annihilate, however i'm improving a lot since then. Not filling every corner of the piece with something, leaving some areas blank... can't say i'm not trying. Anyway the most difficult part was making the earth look like it's about to go boom. I used that texture once more, except i added a lot more, the lava on the earths surface is a lot more controlled, i've overlayed some more textures to make it seem like it is going boom, and everything's a nice ominous orange to evoke the feeling of imminant doom. Nice huh.
But anyway, bleugh, fact time!
- Terragen pre-render time = 3 hours
- Actual render time = 5minutes.
- Post render time = 1hour.
- Cinema4d pre-render time = 1hour
- Actual render time = 25mins
- Photoshop time = 23hours
- Photoshop layers = apprx 300.
- .PSD size = 412mb.
- Computer crashes = 7.
Total time = 28.5 hours. (over 4 days)
And now my laptop needs a rest because it's barely letting me open up IE O_O
Anyway, usual applies, comments and fav's most welcome appreciated and blahblah. Full view makes alyn happy and will make you happy too. Hopes you likes my work
