Terragen - Solitude by tigaer Terragen - Solitude by tigaer proudly presents: terragen - solitude (adagio of peace)


once again all you see here is fantasy and no reality simulation kind of work. imagine you're on a distant planet. maybe stranded... totally lost. the only thing you hear is the roaring wind that strides through the canyon. the slight sound of smoothly flowing water. you see that impressive wide view of an alien desert like environment... to finally look up into the sky to see a planet's asteroid belt rising... soon followed by the planet itself.


what you see here is a panorama. a wallpaper thought for dual-screen setup.

the actual terragen background consists of 7 different pics. merged and maniped together within photoshop. that was quite a task... beside the usual manip work i did. for the planet i used parts *alyn's planet tutorial and it offered me some hints how to create the belt for the planet. my overall target was to create a well balanced serene scene... and i think i succeeded. =) a great start into 2005.

The color of the water is very beautiful, and the color of the land just brings it out.

sieht hammer aus ;)

great work
heidorn Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2005
Oh I really love the textures on this one. The whole scene is so serene. I wish the right part of the render had a little more contract/color, but other than that you've outdone yourself one again. I especially like the water and the various different colors of the reflection.

So nun hab' ich endlich auch mal Zeit gefunden wieder Comments auf dA zu schreiben. :) Fangen wir am besten doch mal hier an. :)

Diesesmal muss ich wirklich sagen, das du hiermit eins der perfektesten Terragen Bilder gemacht hast die ich je gesehen habe.
Ich weis eigentlich garnicht was ich so recht sagen soll, weil eh alles daraus hinausläuft, das es wie echt aussieht...
atürlich sieht man dem Gestein ganz vrone links an das es nicht echt ist, aber man muss 2mal hingucken bevor man sich sicher ist, da du ihr wirklich eine außerordentlich reale Struktur verliehen hast, die genauso irgendwo vorkommen könnte... genau in der farbe und der konsistenz... man kann sich regelrecht vorstellen, wie es sich anhören muss, wenn man am Ufer entlang geht.
Auch wie das Gestein ins Wasser eintaucht und dann langsam in der tiefe verschwindet ist genial geworden.
Und ab hier, also ab dem Wasser wo das Ufer nichtmehr zu sehen ist, muss ich gestehen würde ich sagen das der Hintergrund ein Foto ist, wenn ich es nicht besser wüsste. Ganz besonders der rechte Teil ganz im Hintergund und das Wasser mit seinen großartigen Spiegelungen von Felsen und Farben des Horizontes sehen aus, als wenn sie wirklich wäre. Also das Wasser hat mich fast vom Stuhl kippen lassen. :)
Die Wolken gelingen dir auch immer besser und irgendwie muss ich gestehen, das auch sie kaum besser gehen.
Einzig der Planet im Hintergrund kommt an den Maßstab des ganzen Bildes nicht ganz ran, was nicht heißen muss, denn er ist sehr hoch. :)
Aber wie ich deiner Beschreibung entnehmen konnte machst du die nicht so häufig und dafür sieht der auch wieder fantastisch aus, doch die Ringe von ihm stören mich etwas. Die Idee ist gut und es sieht auch klasse aus, doch irgendwie schaut es aus, als ob es keine Ringe im Weltall sind sondern Ringe die in nebligeren Sphären, auf dem PLaneten auf dem wir stehen, hereingemalt worden sind. Wobei ich auch zugeben muss, das es so irgendwie zu dem ganzen Bild passt, auch wenn ich immer wieder dran hängen bleib.
Also fazit ist, das du dich mit dem Bild und auch der tatsache, das du ein Dual-Display Wallpaper draus gemacht hast wieder einmal selbst übertroffen.
Mehr gibt's nicht zu sagen, außer das es wie ich ja schon am Anfang erwähnte, nur Lob über die Echtheit es Bildes geworden ist ^^

traumhaft wie sich der canyon durch das grünblau schimmernde landschaft schneidet..
bringt harmonie auf gleich 2 screens :)

everything looks gorgeous but the rings really ruins it all
AidenVenis Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2005  Student Interface Designer
Youve could spend a bit more time on the land on the most left side. And the planet rings you used are more 2d like but maybe that whas meant to be. Good job on the rest though!

I love this! The transition between the desert-like plain and the ocean is very effective. The water is absolutely beautiful as well, I simply love it. =)
