I just completed a new project and like to share this on Blenderartists. Five months ago i started working on a new set of environments to update my Environment course. I started from scratch and used Blender 2.81 to design all the scenes.
I had some limitations in size because i didn’t want to make to complex scenes. It turns out that the final content was more user friendly than the previous course, simply because i simplified a lot of things.
It took some time to make these 4k high sample renders. I used some stills from the trailer, but now replaced these renders with the new ones. If you joined the 2.7x version, the 2.81 is a free upgrade!
I love this new version of the course! I purchased it when it was 2.79 and can’t wait to do it at 2.81! Thanks so much for all the hard work you put in, it’s stunning and a terrific help to those of us learning.
This course is excellent! Thanks so much much for making and remaking such a high quality resource! I’ve tried quite a few course and I’m aspiring to create one as well so this excellent inspiration! Thanks again.
I especially love the featured image (the Scene_5_b one) with the old house. I really appreciate all the variety in the ground cover, the various grasses and scattered leaves. The level of detail here is really cool.
Is it geomtery nodes? Very well done.
Do you base these off reference photos of real places or just completely invent whole new places?
