A place I’ve never been. A place I might never go to. A place I have seen some very nice photos of on the internet and a place I wanted to ‘paint’ (well, as close to painting as I get). Various treatments, but the first is my favourite - it has a sort of loose painterly style that I would like to have (if I could paint).
Painterly Version 1
Painterly Version 2
Basic render with a bit of tweaking only (this sort of also explains why I like to make things more like paintings because realism ain’t my thang)
A different view - softer paint processing
A different view, with tweaks only (almost straight out of the camera)
Data from the Scottish Government and NASA;
Data cleaned up in QGIS;
Mountain mesh and base texture created in Gaea;
Put together and rendered in Blender (using various free and purchased assets (inc. Graswald, Bontaniq)… but I modelled the cottage myself - very tricky and sculpted the river bank a bit );
Post processed in Photoshop and Lightroom.
Quite pleased with how this one has come out…
I have an ArtStation thread which shows how this image evolved too:
‘Bonus’ Additional View 1 (painterly)
‘Bonus’ Additional View 2 (still painterly… this should probably have been a new upload but don’t want to spam the forum!)
