Rough block-in for my new work. Lots of rocks in this one, and thinking of the best way to do them. I think I’ll have to model and then sculpt in ZBrush. If I use a displacement material in Vue than the layers of soil and grass sitting on top don’t conform to the surface very well.
My inspiration for this is a painting by Ivan Shishkin, a Russian landscape painter of the 19th century. There are figures in the original but I think I’ll leave them out of my version. The light is very nice though, so I’ll try to capture that if I can.
