Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Marcel... keep in mind that the sun is relatively low in the sky during winter so even at 11 AM it is not very high and the shadows are long. Having said that, it is EARLY winter so maybe the sun could be altered a bit. Thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Cleaned up the pathway.. thanks for the suggestion Bitkar.

Also added some snow patches on the window sills, tractor, and fence post tops. Also placed some icicles hanging from the wire and window sill as well as the bottom of the tractor but you can't see it because of the shadow.

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

The fence post look ok to me now... Yes I agree... Although my only complain about them is there is no snow on the posts tips yet. I think there should be some there. it would make the scene unearthly realistic. It would be nice, if the particle snow gets stuck on the silo cladding seams, in the wi...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Okay, I bet a number of you aren't going to like the lighting on this one.. I do! :D To me it gives the feeling of an incoming storm after a brief melting..

I also moved the telephone poles and wires but you can still see the shadows of the wires across the pathway.

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Bob, I thought the same thing about the Aerometer :D Maybe I could just move the poles so they are off the screen and closer to the foreground so all you see are the shadows of the pole to the right and the wires spanning across the pathway. Yes, house isn't done yet. Damn Vue doesn't have easy UVMa...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Yeah, I guess Aerometer is more correct but I still call them windmills :D and I have one in there now. Working on those pesky fence poles. I hate to start all over with them but I might just have to..

Added another shot with a different atmosphere. Gives kind of a clear and cold feeling.

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

i dont like the look of that poles.... maybe too much of bumpmap, wrong or too sharp. It doesnt look good. Otherwise its developing nicely. Right there with you bitkar. I don't know why they are showing up like that. I am still working with those. But all in all I am happy with how it's coming along.
