I really like this image. It's really interesting. I think some things could be worked on a little more but I'm still learning myself so it's little hard for me to criticize. The only things that bothers me a lot are the clouds on the right side of the screen. Maybe they could be a little more transparent. There aren't any other clouds anywhere else on the screen. Maybe if there were more clouds in the image that might help. I'm not really sure. But I really like the lighting in and around the castle. I also like the tree branches and the texturing on the castle. Nice work.

That the moon has crashed REAL hard into our sweet little planet :rolleyes:

no kidding, I think the bump on the wall is a little too strong. There isn't too much detail on the whole castle, looks like you used tiling textures. that's too bad, because this image has a lot of potential. I love the lighting and also the planet, however unrealistic large, is very well done.

cheers

thanks for your comment..
yes..the moon is somewhat strong/strange/big and it is meant to be unrealistic,excluding the model in the overall scene too I havn't mind realism too much while making it..(the trees are really sproportioned :D)
and yes..I've used tiling textures, why they're so bad?
not too much detail in the texturing since it is a night scene
I'll try lowering the bump however, that disturbing "sharpness" is (wrongly) made by radiosity, boosting the internal light too much..
:hmm:

the second render is tons better. try placing some plants in the second pic or bring the tree to the left higher.

This could be a really excellent scene with a few corrections. It seems as if light is coming from inside the castle between the bricks, wich is kind of odd. also, this seems like it would be a fairly large building in real life, but the large size of the bricks makes it seem scaled down. Resize the brick texture so theyre smaller, and this will look really great.

Yea ok I like the moon this way, leave it this large :thumbsup:

About the tiling textures: It's a long story, if you really want to know in-depth check out Leigh's tutorial (http://leigh.cgcommunity.com/tutorials.htm), it kicks ass. In short: The real world is not tiling either. You can say "I don't want to stick very close to reality" like with the moon, but the moon sets a mood, the tiling textures are just distracting. Check out some reference, there is always dirt everywhere, like mud, erosion, trails, plants etc etc. It are these things that make an image real and not CG. Even cartoonish images take care of these things. The best way is to lay out the UV's and handpaint the textures (you can use tiling texture as a base).

Procedurals have the same problem. By the way one more suggestion. Put another texture on top of the roof, it looks really weird, a stone roof ;)

hope this clears up a bit :)
