The Wall

Pure entry, 1000 samples. I went micro displacement happy on my entry this week. Got to a point where blender ran out of memory, and I had to edit my meshes to avoid this. I have an RX 580 on my computer (cost me about 200$), turns out that when the going gets tough, OpenCL is kind of buggy. So I had to render this using CPU render.

Hamish : “Your island”? You mean Ireland?
Stephen : Yeah. It’s mine.
Hamish : You’re a madman.
Stephen : [nods and starts laughing, then Hamish does as well] I’ve come to the right place, then.

I’m just going to go ahead and render my image got to go to work in the afternoon going to drop my samples down low to get it done.

I think it looks good in the view port for two days of work or what I can see of it at 30 samples :sweat_smile: should be done before I go to work. :grin:

Did some displacement with norms and basic modeling and used tree sapling
