Dead forest - WIP - feedback requested

Trying out a moody forest with dead trees. The ground is lowpoly as my laptop can’t handle any more. Need feedback/criticism to improve this piece as I plan to use it in a short animation.


Very nice render! I like the fog/mist you added. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you! Btw, I am a huge fan of your procedural materials.

Thank you! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Love the fog! I’ve been learning to use Blender from this Jan. Still a bit hard for me to get it right with large scale scenes.

If you duplicate trees, do not make it that obvious. Identical objects are beside each others. Same scale, same orientation.

Thanks! Will fix it

I think the scene is brilliant but the suggestions before like the duplication of trees is really good advice. My ‘thing’ is with the mist. There’s just something off with it like it’s a plane with a texture on it. It looks fixed in one place. Maybe if you could dim out the brighter spots or make the heavier parts more transparent that would fix it? Just my opinion. But overall I think the scene is fantastic.

Added some gradient to the fog. Also created 3 different tree objects in a collection for the geo nodes scattering to give variety. Renders from a few different angles:
