More updates - again pixely low quality render. mental ray render time is starting to get pretyt long with all the stuff going on - final image will be kick ass polished 1080p render though that will be rendered overnight while I sleep.

Starting to add finishing touches...made a new ground tile texture to replace the crappy looking models and to save polys for more little touches around the village like the bridges and fences, etc.

Oh, and fixed the bright blue light on the monolith for Amir

i like how colors are melting with each other - blue and yellow
Maybe back "mountain" has to much values? It would give greater feel of realism if it didn`t have so much black value on it

looks great.
thanks for bringing back those blue lights

these are just my opinions,
I liked the size of the monolith on the last version.
the sky could be a little darker (at least on top)

yeah, Ive played around with the monolith scale a lot. I have a few things I want to try out with that before final submission...I may or may not show those...Some of the stuff im trying is HELLA sloppy, hahah. I do agree with the scale though, in my latest render it feels like the monolith is closer than the objects in front of it. I will do my best to address that!


Thanks Amir! Feedback is good! Let's get more going! Were down to the last two weeks! Every input is helpful!

Final 2 shots, compressed for submission (My full 1080p renders get rejected from gameartisans uploader. Sad times, sad times.) Also, a AO Wireframe. 450k-ish tris. Ill have the exact tri count, textures and all that fun stuff soon.

Enjoy! I wish everyone the best of luck. There are some pretty sick environemnts from some of the other forums too. If you havent been tracking those, definitely check them out, a lot of people put in some sick effort.

looks really good Steven. Hope you the very best luck.

I've also checked the other forums and some of the environments are really good!
