Photo-realistic Mountains

Hey all,

This was my quick morning project, an attempt at making a photorealistic mountain scene. I’m fairly happy with it – of course, more work could improve it, but I’m happy to call it finished.

What do you think? The full image is below – works great for an iPhone wallpaper!



If the mountains are going to be the only thing in the scene, I would bump up the mesh subdivision to a level that’s as high as your RAM would allow so as to maximize the precision of the displacement (relative to the resolution of your texture).

The atmospheric effect looks gorgeous though (though the transitions in the corners seem a bit on the abrupt side).
