WIP- A cold journey

My plan is to remix the 2.83 splash screen with the latest glacier one. I want to keep Ians boat since its beauty cannot be beaten , but i want to fully recreate the glaciers myself using geo nodes so it fits with the idea.
To add further elements im going to put a photoscanned person on top of the boat eating the famous Blender donut , some ship pieces around the glaciers and possibly a camp site on the glaciers for more of a mysterious vibe .


I’m trying to follow everybody with WiPs in the challenge over on Sketchfab, and I can’t find you there – link please?

DDinqja - Sketchfab thank you

Got the base done just fine tuning and adding things here and there.

Made the texture for the icy mountain in Quixel Mixer and trying to give the rendered shot the same look as Ian Huberts splash using the compositor , heres a low res render:


Heres a higher quality render

and a few more details on the work :
The glaciers were made using a heat map and the geometry node system which made the procedural side way look more authentic. I did some manual editing after just to get some more details right.

To make the sea I tried using the ocean modifier for the first time and i got a pretty good result . To get it to look more “sea-like” and mix some other elements of the environment I also played with the material a bit
