This image to the right was a test image for an idea I had rattling around my head. The idea never quite made it into a worthwhile finished piece.
My goal was to create an immersive scene that was organic, had an illuminated water effect and, generally, didn't look mechanical.
The trobule was that I just didn't have the skills to do what I wanted. I had no idea how to model the type of organic trees I wanted or how to control the tricky lighting in the water or anything else for that matter.
