Hillside sunset

Postby davidh » Thu Sep 06, 2012 7:53 am

Attached is a sunset NPR ,using the same building as used in the TROPICAL images.The house and grassy hillside was rendered in Thea with additional vegetation and the background added in photoshop.The original image was 3500 pixels wide and was reduced to upload here so I have attached a cropped part of the original image to show the detail.

Grass looks fantastic! "Even better than the real thing". Could you please share your brush settings?

The main green grass is 3d rendered in Thea using the instance tool to populate the area.
The other grass added in photoshop(the light coloured grain/wheat grass are actual .pngs of grass from "Digart" Vegetation which are dragged and dropped into the image.I cant upload the Digart grasses due to licencing issues but here is the website I purchased them from:

Thanks Davidh. I guess it is the best way - to combine Thea instances and post add vegetation for more natural look.

I can feel the soft heated breeze on my cheek as I walk through the grass. Well done as usual sir!

2 Versions using Theas Relight facility to render out a bright summer evening and a slightly dark evening.

A complete Thea render except for the birds and the colour overlays/toning done in photoshop.

Another view ,this time with some additional vegetation added in photoshop(like the first image all green grasses and white flowering plants are straight from Thea,also the trees, and the light grain grasses are photoshop.)

I'd really like to see the raw Thea output to appreciate the level of PP involved.

These are stunning.

Thanks Rich,these are pretty much the raw Thea output except for some colour toning or minimum, and I mean minimum, foreground additions.(these would be any light/white coloured grain/wheat grass,if they are not there,then its just colour toning)

I have attached an NPR of a new view,but the only reason its NPR is because its still rendering(all these images are saved from the interactive mode)and is quite grainy.
I often use these grainy images to set up my final image and if I am not happy with the final grain-free render than I use these for my NPRs where I will change the sky,background,add water etc.

:shock:

I was expecting a very stripped back render. I wasn't expecting that the foreground was actually rendered. That is solid endorsement of Thea's power when in the proper hands. Wow :thumb:

Heres a more finished version of the image previously uploaded with the colours also more saturated(I think the sun flare is maybe a bit overdone)

Solo,
I like that effect from the denoiser,it also helped to remove the thin straight lines that were emenating from the sunflare.

Rich youre making me blush here!As I have said many times before,its always great to get positive feedback.
I have attached 2 more images from the hillside house, a bit more abstract than the last few.
The web was added in photoshop as was the glare and colour tones.
