njeneb's entry. 2nd Test Render

Iceland Challenge WIP.
This might look very different when I get to the final render. Right now, I am working on the plant distributions and trying different lighting setups.

Hey Henry! Great to see you're entering, looking forward to your next iteration. The lighting is nice, and knowing your earlier vegetation work the foreground will get to be ok too.

Really great start! The plants are already looking very nice. And I like the little details in the hills in the back.

Thanks guys. I need to model a church. Create some more 'action' and do some wild cloud work for the action. (hint: the action shut down air traffic in Europe one summer)

Well, the Icelandic churches aren't that elaborate, luckily. Sounds intriguing.

Added the volcano cloud. I also extended the area of the ground cover plants.

Indeed. I think you should reduce translucency of the plants considerably.

I think the plants are okay. I put a second sunlight light source overhead. It might be causing the translucency issue. It could also be one of the plants, cowbells. They have small white flowers.

I am going to try a different light set up. Also mix the plant populations into the background; and match the distant terrain to the foreground better.

The church object is the next thing. And add a road to the church from off screen.

I think I have the lighting and the POV how I want it.

Looks nice Henry.
I would play a little more with the lower part of the smoke that comes out of the volcano.
