Ok so this is my first image posted here.Yeeeey!:slight_smile:

I want to improve it and make it look as cool as possible. Any ideas on how to do that?

add some variety to the plants, add some fine bumpmaps to the spikes… those are my ideas for now.

Sharkfinns on the beach! HEEELP!

Wow, really nice for a first render. Are the spikes modeled, or did you use something like a displacement texture?

Bakerman - Yeah, I just put a stucci texture on the spikes for displacement.:wink:

Thanks for your tips Kemmler:) I’ll post a new version as soon as I can.

Oh, one more thing - the spikes are actually a bit transparent so the shadows should also be blue and transparent but I just don’t know how to do that:( Do I have to use Yafray or will the internal renderer be good for this?
