Different approach here – RealSky addon instead of HDRI, simple noise texture on terrain instead of image-based texturing. I think I should keep all this sketchy stuff here rather than on BA. Maybe it’s time to create some more finished works.
I’ve finally done all the xfrog Africa trees. Plenty of other collections still to do. It will probably take a couple of years to finish. At least I’ve sorted out a good workflow.
I’m concentrating a lot on composition. This image uses the Rectangular or Ell (L) scheme, which I rather like. Seems the only compositional scheme that ever gets mentioned (outside the Payne book) is the Rule of Thirds. Also I’m using a 1.4 format for my images lately, which is close to the golden ratio. All good fun.
