Storm Rising -Print- by johnwarren Storm Rising -Print- by johnwarren
Something I cooked up during the storms we had.
I tried to get a "Stormy" feeling to it and I think I did pretty well *shrugs*

Those over at Ashundar saw the WIP and I hope you like the changes I've made. I've changed the textures a bit and worked on the water - Out of all of my pieces, this has to be my fav water effect I've managed to cook up :D

Anyway, roughly 36 hours rendering at 8000x12000 with colour correction and bordering in Photoshop 7 =)

Hope you all like :D

thanks for your comment on midnight valley,that was a brilliant interpretation aswell,something i never thought of.I love it when people do that to my work.
now this piece really stood out for me,mainly for my passion about the atmosphere,storms/clouds in general.

This piece is very effective.with a tone of depth. it also holds great deatils, I am blown away by the water effect you have,that is very realistic :) .

have a good one john.

Awsome ! I like the shadow from the peak to the left. Maybe there should've have more vegetation though ...

this is awesome

what program?
huang Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2003  Professional Interface Designer
This is quite a superb landscape render. I epecially like the clouds and the water, but the texture of the mountains looks a bit off to me. Nevertheless, this is quite an amazing piece. :)
siebenzehn Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2003
hey that's cool...
the sky is fantastic, great clouds (3D? in one moment it looks 2D, in the next 3D)
terrain/textures: well, the right side looks just great, even the shore is great, and great colors in the textures. But the left side looks somehow different, "less interesting" kinda

anyway, that's just a minor and subjective drawback, +fav

I can see youve perserved the atmosphere nicely. Like whats stots said the depth is amazing. Combined with the texture work is simply beautiful.

really nice work :) love it ..
stotty Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
Ahh what the hell, :+fav: for your efforts - I would struggle to match this for sure ;)
stotty Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
Yeah, this is wonderful.

Although I see no real definition to the sun, nor texturing at the waters edge (usual suspects ;)), I feel that you have really put some great efforts into this one. The water, yeah - the new features made this piece what it is :D

My fav part has to be the depth to the scene. Good work John :D

You have conveyed the storm feeling well here. Looks unsettled and cold.

I may need an umbrella :D

wow, absolutely great, surface, water...the atmo roxx :headbang: :+fav: for sure

psamtik Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
nice work john :0 ya we've been having some kinda crappy weather recently also. But its a change so i dont care. Great piece here, i still thing terragens clouds suck balls but its not your fault. You should seriously try out Vue De'sprit this program is omg compared to terragen and my really good friend has plenty of images for you to go wow over ;)

joeynickel Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
Well, I'm not a fan of images that come out of landscape generators, they look pretty much all the same and you can tell it's Bryce or Terragen. The more I'm glad to see your submission, which has a wonderful sky, not those typical wavy water but a very good one, nice shading and nice fog. It's such a beautiful image that I simply have to :+fav: it.

Great render! :D
tangledweb Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003  Professional General Artist
As usual, you do the best 3D scenery...the clouds are a brilliant gesture, storming over this dry landscape...however, to me, anyways, there's an uncomfortable relation to sky and landscape, and it all has to do with light. Not sure how to explain it...I understand the light source is directly ahead and this scene is going to be bright...but I do expect at least a slight variation in shadow particulary in the background and especially reflected in the water. I may be off on picking out where the light source is and how the clouds reflect take it with a grain of salt. :lol:
snoops-nm Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
The terrain is fantastic.. i love the surface map.. and i get the storm feel from it ..
you have done a great job on the water also :thumbsup:
feelingblue Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
It came out great! Terrain and textures look really good. I like how the water moves and those storm clouds are awesome!
n4snoah Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2003
Great job! The water even looks stormy.
