In my quest to create some nice nature scenes, I decided to go through Andrew Price’s meadow tutorial today.
After lots of messing about I came up with this.
Tomorrow I’ll start to create some trees with MTree and put them in. I’m thinking of creating a forest entry in the background.
I also just used the mist pass to comp that in over rather than using the volumetric fog that he creates. The main reason is that I’ve never used volumetrics. After playing with his settings, the render times and noise were going to kill me, so I thought it would be way easier to do it in the comp.
So, the todo list is to put more grass in the foreground, make some rocks, and of course, some trees.
This is also just lit with some sun lights. I’ll maybe play with a HDRi instead to see if it makes much difference.
