Terragen - Cliffs Of Belfalas by tigaer Terragen - Cliffs Of Belfalas by tigaer
4 days of intense work... fixing... trying... and and and... i really like what comes out. again i combined several terragen renderings... 3 this time. one for the background, one as the main picture and one for the water. and fixed them up so that everything was fitting in. as you can imagine... the most work was done in photoshop. used some of my skills to enhance shadows... water... textures all that stuff.

like one of my earlier works (coast of enedwaith [link] ) - which was very successful (thx again for the amazing feedback <img src="[link] align="middle" alt="=) (Smile)" title="=) (Smile)" border="0" /> ) - this one is also based on the lord of the rings and its beautiful landscapes. that are just some expressions how i imagine some places in middleearth... what you see here is the coast of belfalas. behind these cliffs and mountains lies gondor... the land of the man, the only hope of middleearth in the war against sauron... <img src="[link] align="middle" alt="=) (Smile)" title="=) (Smile)" border="0" /> .

i really hope you'll like it... <img src=" [link] align="middle" alt="=) (Smile)" title="=) (Smile)" border="0" />

(Any errors in spelling, tact, or fact are transmission errors...oO(thx bren < img src="[link] align="middle" alt=";) (Wink)" title=";) (Wink)" border="0" /> )

happy viewing...

Good lord, you're a god with Terragen. I'm just getting acquainted with the program so my stuff still looks like crap. You're amazing.

Oh my God, you are amazing. I adore this piece, as with all the other pieces in your Lord of the Rings series. It's a rare feat for anyone to live up to my LoTR visions. ;) (Wink)

Very impressive from both the scenic and fantasy views!

I note two things. First, on the water, there appear to be small 'purple' zones where either the water didn't render properly or it mixed with the lighting in an undesireable way. Second, several of the mountain peaks in the far distance have edges that are perfectly straight lines, causing the peaks to appear pointy and triangular, and giving them a manufactured appearance.

Other than those two things, I think this picture is perfect, and that's saying something considering how insanely picky I am. :-D Beautiful job. Truly, truly beautiful.

oooh! Worship

Maybe a bit to strong lightrays though...
crownlessking Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2002
As a Tolkien NUT I love it. It just captures the beauty of the Middle earth landscape, the bay of Belfalas, everything. 1 fav for me!

stotty Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2002
My word, you have done it again Worship the master of middle earth.

This has some really good qualities. I find it fascinating (don't be offended, I am not intending on being hurtful) that a few relatively simple renders can be turned into a well crafted piece of art such as this.

If I look beyond the technicalities of the program, and look at the scene, I see so much atmosphere and depth, almost a perfect feeling of actually being there. The lighting is the thing that does this piece proud.

Very good one this. +fav

Looks like a real Turner, if there was a ship... almost reality!!!
jsenn Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2002
I used to love Bryce landscapes but there was always a "hard ege" to them as if they were alien landscapes and an artist would have to be very good for them to blend into an earthly landscape. Terragen landscapes are exceptional. This is exceptional. There is a translucent quality that one cannot see normally even in reality. This is beautiful work.
ciddy Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2002
Very, VERY!! Good work! One of your finest I guess :) (Smile)
A masterpiece and a must for Terragen fans and LOTR fans ;) (Wink)
Keep up the AMAZING work! :) (Smile)

amazing terragen piece ..

I love terragen too, I had been working with it much time in 2001 :-) (Smile) now I'm back to photoshop .. but I'm always interestid in terragen works made by other people ..

I didn't see all your works, but those that I saw are very realistic .. and this one too .. but it's also so mysterious with unreal feeling .. I love it .. and the water was done beautifully .. though the ways are quite soft they look so dramatic .. I also love soft rays in the mist ..

beautiful work .. and thanks a lot for all your comments to my pictures Heart I really appreciate it

I love Lord of teh Rings. Watching it right now actually! Real great job Tigaer :) (Smile) Especaially on getting a rainbow!
The only thing that could be fixed up are those few blue lines in the water....they just look kinda funny, but thats really minor.

This is also my new wallpaper.

Now we need a great shot of right in the middle or Mordor ;) (Wink) That'd be sweet!
lobsterclaws Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2002
This is very beautiful... I love how if it were real, the image has the perspective of being taken from a ship on the water, I love the sun rays... It reminds me of the artic, or images you see of Alaska... Nice work.
hexador Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2002
jeez, you have no idea how much I am into LOTR, books and movies, great job I love it, some things could be better, but they seem to have been mentioned before above in others, what really would be sweet is if you did mount doom and the fire and clouds that circle it, that would be awesome =) (Smile) great job +fav

greatgoron Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2002
Magnífica obra. Sin embargo, creo que hay unas líneas azules enmedio del mar que no deberían ir ahí. Coincido también en que el romper de las olas contra las montañas no se ve bien, porque el mar está tranquilo. El título a la izquierda de la imagen ensucia un poco la obra.
