Over the Hills and far, far away... by LightDrop Over the Hills and far, far away... by LightDrop
This is a render I did in October 2011 when I came back from my first holidays since nearly 20 years in Turkey; I started to postwork it in December and finished last week.
Terrain is a slightly modified version of 'Honalulu' -> [link] by :iconladyofspira: atmo, water and surfaces my own presets.
Rendertime was 3 hrs 13 mins @ 3840x2400 in Terragen 0.9.19, postwork ~ 2hrs 30 mins in PS CS 5

Somehow it has remind me on a time back in the 70ies, when I stumbled into a 'Karmic-Love' that never got fulfilled...

Hey Lady, you got the love I need,
May Be, more than enough.
Oh, Darlin', Darlin', Darlin', walk a while with me,
Oh, you got so much, so much, so much.

Many have I loved, and many times been bitten,
many times I've gazed along the open road.

Many times I've lied and many times I've listened,
many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

Many dreams come true and some have silver linings
I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold.

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missin',
many many men can't see the open road.

Many is a word that only leaves you guessin',
Guessin' 'bout a thing you really ought to know.
You really ought to know.
I really ought to know.


This old Led Zeppelin song takes an important part at those times...

Hope you like it just half as I do!

I thought so; unfortunately I'm just lerning thisone myself and so can't be of much help. TG2 is a really nice and awesome app, but the UI is a pain in the a**
TG Classic is a lot easier to handle - maybe you should try this?

I love fantasy landscapes like this. I remember as a child seeing vibrant colored fantasy worlds on my school folder. You don't get to see art like this any more. Thank you for making this. It's relaxing and very moving
