The Monastery by 00AngelicDevil00 The Monastery by 00AngelicDevil00
I've seen some photos of monasteries far from civilization; some in beautiful and sometimes extreme places. These photos inspired me to turn Hikone castle to a monastery too. Search Google, they're inspiring! ;P
The render time was insane, 15h25'03" exactly...

Rendered in Vue 8 Infinite,
minor postwork in PS CS4

Thanks for viewing! =)

I hear alot of the people using vue talking abut render time and polygons. Can you explain them to me?

Vue 8 seems to be pretty wonderful but the tool is nothing without the artist's hands. Kudos to you for this scene.

Stunning image!

How do you make your terrains so steep on the edges? Are these all hyperterrains?

And how do you populate such large ecosystems even far in the distance? I know you have a large computer but that's absolutely insane!

:icon00angelicdevil00:
00AngelicDevil00 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010
Thank you! Yes, those are very large HyperTerrains, and yeah, I take some risk and populate even the background mountains too to make them look more realistic. Sometimes my virtual memory gets too low, and sometimes my VGA driver crashes, but most of the time I can populate them without any harm :D

Wow, this is pretty good!

Though I don't know how I feel about the composition of the whole thing. It feels like either the foreground is too dark or the middle ground is too light and there's really not much distance. :o

Glorious!!

The GR has come out very nicely - and a more appropriate render time! (Just how do you get your renders so short normally?). :)

I'm working on an image that has a similar composition and although I'm always inspired by your great art (and the rest at VuePort), I don't want you to think it's a direct copy of this image because I started work on it last week.

Hi Drea - Fortunately, I pulled my image in another direction so it doesn't look like I directly copied your scene anymore (although it's still sharing a lot of the elements you've used - the hanging moss, vines, waterfall, hyperterrains etc).

You can imagine my horror after seeing all these elements in your dev, looking so damned great (as everything else you submit is). I was almost tempted to just stop right there with my image. With the alts I've made though, hopefully it shouldn’t look like a pale imitation of your scene anymore. ('Hopefully' being the operative word). I'm happy being inferior to your images - but I didn’t want to come across as a cheater and look like I was just copying yours.

...but looking back at your image now, I think I should have copied it instead of trying to forget your dev while I was finishing mine off - I would have got a better result! :XD:

The image in question is the Morning Mist and it's awaiting VuePort submission approval as we speak. I would love to know what you think - and please be brutally honest (I'm a huge admirer of your work and a big boy now so I can take criticism). :)

...as well as any thoughts on how the render came out so grainy - I was setting lots of bars to max. :O

Lovely view, the vines look great :D you think 15 hours is a long render? I just came out of a 51 hour one :faint: in fact, it was taking so long in "final" when I first tried (few hours just to do a quarter of the prepass) that I had to render it in "preview" mode and simply scale the image down after that 51 hour render to compensate for lousy anti-alias. The reuslting picture looks quite good but I don't get why it took so long, there was dynamic population involved, but I thought that was supposed to speed things up :confused:
