Title: Rainforest Waterfall
Name: Michael Tolan
Country: USA
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop

This waterfall was done in a virtual world called Second Life. Keep in mind, the technology of the engine is limited, and therefore bumps/normals, are practically non existant, and shadows can look a bit basic. I attempted to create a waterfall without using the really bad particle system in the engine, while you cannot see the full effect in the image, the particles were replaced with transparent animated textures that made the water seem as if it were spraying about and moving. Like my rainforest pic, this project was yet another attempt at over coming the limitations of the engine to create a lush environment.
