The Lost Lagoon by stotty The Lost Lagoon by stotty
Stottys Terragen art.

I was trying for something different to this as part of another collab, well, whilst messing about, this came up thought it looked quite good in the preview, so gave it a chance on a full render.

Just heard about a program called terragen...and then
I find your site !! Dont know anything about this program
except you can create landscapes with it, AND I want to
learn it - anyway, I love this image !! The colors and the
composition are wonderful. I also like the transparency of
the water because you can see the weeds on the bottom
as well as the sand which seems so realistic to me.

Adding to dev watch and fav list

Point Right dApress review
Point Right by ~sh4vo

I haven't seen such a realistic piece coming from Terragen for a long time. Let me congratulate you for this wonderful piece of art but there are a few things I'd like to clarify.

Those clouds are really great and realistic. I think they're the key in this piece, as well as that lovely water. You made them smooth and soft, which I believe changes this piece completely.

The mountains are nice but perhaps there are too much. The scenery around the water is a little bit too rough, which kinda' takes away the dreamish look of the whole thing. However, the water fading out to the sand is absolutely perfect. I was looking for something to suggest but i wouldn't mess touch it!!

Something I noticed the first time I looked at this piece was the reflection of the sun in the water. It's a little bit too fake has it's tiny, contrasting to the big whole between the clouds, that would give a bigger reflection. Also, if you stare at it for a few moments, you'll see there's something that just isn't right. I think it's too bright. Mes with the opacity of it and I think you'll get there.

Apart from those small details, I think you've done an outstanding job, that could be, however, way better if you spent some more time on it. And I'm suggesting this because I know you've got the skills to make it look better...

Congratulations for this wonderful piece of work!

Wow - I'm your 200th comment. I'm sorry it's taken my so long to look at this.

The sky is awesome, the water is beautiful, I love the sky! The terrain is nice too. Did I say I love the sky? ;) (Wink)

(Can we put the sky into my map somehow??)

Wow...I love this one!
The sunrays coming through the clouds - amazing! And the shadows... Can't get enough of it...
One thing thoug - the bump effect on the water is a bit to "bumpy" for my likings. Other than that, this is a winner!!
blackbadger87 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2003're work is absolutely amazing.
