Here is my first post in quite a while, an icy nature scene completed start to finish in one afternoon.

Rendered in Cycles at 1024 samples, with a fair amount of post processing in Photoshop.
Hopefully the noise blends in with the snow :slight_smile:

Any comments, critiques, or suggestions are appreciated!


And here’s an AO render because I know people like those.

Did you model everything from scratch in an afternoon?

Aside from the obvious: that’s a questionable maple bark, and you’d never put a maple tap that low, looks great for an afternoon’s work! :wink:

Yup, the tree and ground are a bit of sculpting but mostly displacement so it didn’t take long. And I probably should have just left out the tap, as it doesn’t read well and I’m almost certain that isn’t maple bark :slight_smile:
