Megen's Mesa
« on: September 15, 2017, 04:39:04 PM »
Inspired by Rene van Megen's work on Mesa structures.
He also helped me showing how it's done and this is what I got, thanks for the help and inspiration Rene :)
It's more a monolithic like structure rather than a full blown mesa, which Rene depicted perfectly here:

A great success at all levels. It is nice to see this picture here on this site. The quality on Facebook is lower.

Wow! It's really cool. Is it all one rendering of one scene?
If you allow me, I have a couple of comments. I found only two small points, which show the artificial origin of the image. First -- it is a grass that does not have a shallower underlying vegetation (lower levels). And the second -- a noticeable dark outline on the border between the illuminated cliff tops and the sky
Everything else is fantastic, I'm delighted!

Thank you Denis, good eye you have there for the edge ;)
I have fixed it for a new version, soon to be uploaded.
Also I have versions with underlying vegetation, but somehow it didn't look really nice and especially very 'busy' to the eye, very distracting.
I do agree with you that underlying vegetation is what one should expect and it's indeed missing, but as you know now I left it out intentionally.
