Terragen - 69 by tigaer Terragen - 69 by tigaer
tigaer-design.com proudly presents: terragen - 69

D³SCR!PTION

excuse the abstract title but i had no better ideas - even while working on the pic no good title came up in my mind. while the filename was 69.psd all the time i decided the give that 69 the honor to work as a title here. the 69 survived the whole 3 weeks i worked on the piece so... it seems right. ;) alright - what do we have here: the scenery we see here is not on earth, that's for sure. the whole environment looks very alien. i tried not to create a very realistic environment - more a not so common kind of ambience. with this piece i tried to negotiate a feeling off our world. to let you see things from the eyes of an alien eagle soaring through the skies of that far far away planet.

TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

i tried to work out the shoreline with much more detail than usual. especially the water. in my opinion it's the best waterline i ever made. a whole day went into this. another thing i tried is the particular fog. i rendered a second pic from the same terrain with low fog setup and implemented it into my pic - it worked nicely after some alterations. the planet took me a while and i'm not 100% satisfied with that bastard - though a lot of work went into that part too.

aside that... some people think i add my textures via terragen and surface maps. no i don't - all the texturing you see in my pieces are completely done in photoshop. i don't have the terragen knowledge to do that directly inside the program - and see no need to do that. i have much more control over all the details when i add and alter these things manually in PS.

reworked the planet to make it look a bit better - added an atmosphere. also added a pair new rings to the planet to bring in more depth.

Im feelin the post work texture you've done, thats legit. The planet could use a little cleaning up but those mountains are sick. Good work.

You ought to make one like this of a really hot planet where the water is lava and the rocks and cracks glow. That would be freakin sweet.

I don't get it... every time I make something in terragen, it always comes out a bit... polygonal. How do you get it so smooth..?
