    valve here I come!
    artpass_fubar is all about highly striking visuals.
    the map is set at the base of an eroded cliff.

    I'd expect more sense out of a senior member to only post a thread when you have content

    I demand content now :)

    I know I know... I'm already 8 hours in the project and I have no detail done whatsoever yet D:
    so I don't have any screen to show yet. sure I could do like some others and post screen of the vanilla map but that'd be an erroneous use of bandwidth wouldn't it?

    anyways, I should be done fixing the geometry soon so I'll be able to start detailing.
    screens should popup on day 2, hold on.

    Dang, that was my idea.

    You'll probably do a better job than I of it though.

    Needs more interesting lighting in my opinion. I'll see if I can do a tutorial on that... maybe...

    Edit: crap, i always click too soon.
    So, I think you should make the lighting more interesting. How?

    Less ambient and more direct lights. => more contrast in dark/bright => better results!
    You can also try to add a slight yellow or orange tone to the lights, so the whole cave area is less greyish, and less boring.

    That looks amazing.

    Slight edit:
    Aside from the whole "island" thing, it's very similar in premise to what I'm going for. I'm jealous.

    I do have a lot of trouble with lightning here :\
    I'm being very limited in my light sources. right now I'm only using the yellow work light or the lantern. I'm trying to add as much sunlight as I can but yeah... my lightning definetly lacks divercity.
    any tips are appreciated

    edit: tks beats

    What are you going to use for foliage? From what I can see this looks to be an island of the tropical variety, and there isn't that much tropical foliage at the moment.

    Unless... you have a trick up your sleeve...
