Thin Ice by priteeboy Thin Ice by priteeboy
Starting to get a little cold around my area, I say this with numb fingers and toes but really I justed wanted to do a typical Terraspace scene simply because I love the genre yet see it done not as often as I used to, and artists like me who only do it once in a blue moon are to blame :stupidme: netherless this was done without being too worried about it not being original enough or anything, I just wanted something that looked cool and that's all 8-)

I was too picky with the landscape in terms of composition, trying to get something that looked natural and random and not "set up" but still having at least some nice layout of mountains and lakes, so a few hours were spent just trying to get the right look on that. I deliberately limited my options to try and make the landscape (created in Vue) to look like a classic Terragen one, so no tree's, rocks or other objects on it and no true 3D clouds either (just used Vue's old "volumetric" atmosphere here) Things like the low lying mist and beams of sunlight casting down were postworked in, as were the planets. Enjoy! :)

A chilly place to be but not so cold that its stop the mind. Perhaps just a seasonal shift for now. Not so cold and unforgiving and thereby depressing to both mind and soul. Perhaps what lies underneath the ice is a vibrant collection of life who only knows the liquids that surround it as it bounds and thus has no interest or desire to peer above it protective shell. Kind of like people, we are all our own worlds, how we chose to cover them says who we are..........

It probably could be a seasonal variation. The fact some of the ice is melted suggests the temperature isn't below freezing all the time ;)

There's a pretty good quote I heard about people's outlook on life and inability to imagine they're in something greater that states that a fish will never know it's living in water until the day comes it jumps out of it :fish:

This is amazing~ To be honest, I accidently favorited this, not that I didn't like it. I would fav just about everything in your gallery, from what I've seen so far, though that's a bit much...
I don't really know what to say. It's gorgeous~ Though what would a kid know? If it'll boost your ego, I'm sure my friend, whose a much better artist than me (she's like a pro...), would be impressed~

Titan would be one of the more interesting places to visit...Though the dramatic cloud formations in some renders would probably just be a solid orange haze in reality :doh:

I love this, the only thing I would say is that the landscape doesn't blend very well with the water / ice, maybe a reflection or some visible land under the shallower bits of the water would make it work better ;)

:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess the water should have been clearer. Vue needs a "clearness falloff" like what I see in Terragen, where people somehow make the transition between clear and dark quite sudden (that way only the really shallow bits are clear) in Vue the transition is a bit more gentle, to make the coastline areas clear, some of the deeper areas would have been too :(

I guess dark water has a more "cold" feeling, if this were a tropical scene it would have been too clear :XD:
