Heya people!

I had some spare time this weekend a made an environment piece. I read the through the tutorial called “Joy Tree” by Weiye Yin a couple of times and just tried out some different methods. For me the tutorial was a helper to think much simpler. For example: I have always known about the method of making grass with opacity maps, but never think it would look so good. And the trees in max are great!

For this scene I started out with the platform the trees stands at, and then I made the tree. Since I want an unnatural and fairytale look, I went for bright clear colors. Just unwrapped the mountains fast, and painted on the texture. The final render looked like this.

About 30sec of rendering time. I wanted to change the colors a bit, so just photoshop’ed it and painted on some stars and some glowing flying objects.

As the waterfall didn’t look very good at the top, and I didn’t like the size of the picture, I cut it so it got some other dimensions. The results turned out pretty good. It got the calm and peaceful feeling, which was something I wanted to achieve.
