The Old Castle by penwiper The Old Castle by penwiper
Our journey around Penwiper Island continues. The Lake of Nymphs as been left far behind and we have climbed high up into the interior. It is mid morning in early autumn, the air is like crystal and the silence near total. It is a strange place that we have come to and we talk in whispers.
[Technical notes for those interested: I sketched out the composition in Photoshop and then went into Vue to create the scene. I used a very bright light which bleached out a lot of the detail, so post rendering work mainly consisted of painting in textures and lost details.]

Wonderful art work. I simply can not tell it is a rendered piece of work. It looks every bit like a photo of a real place. The lighting is amazing!

This is incredible! I actually had to do a double-take to check whether this was photo or not. Then I realized this was a 3d piece of artwork. Bravo bravo! Panda Bunny Neko Misc Emoji-07 (Applause) [V1]

good job. It looks very natural and it works all together in a smoothy way.
