@ Horo- That is a cool way of thinking about it, and nice to know others have the patience issue too cheese

@ GussNemo - Yeah I tried some of the tutorials when I first started but for some reason it didn’t click. Then I came back to it when I got a chance to get Horo and David’s Bryce Tutorials and it was like a light bulb went off.  Thanks for the suggestions grin and I was considering a sky change but was on the fence on if it was the right move or not. Also thanks for the kind words.

@ Chohole - Wow, that’s what i was looking for. Quick Question how did you do the snow inside?

I used a prim either a cylinder or a rounded edge cylinder and flattened it then turned it on itd edge, fitted it into the globe behing my goddess figure and applied a volumetric snow mat. (there is one in the Pro materials)  altered the repeat a little.  Plays havoc with render times, but does look good.  You could even duplicate the sphere and make it a tad smaller and apply the snow mat to that, to get a real snow globe look.

@JK0011:  When I create something I usually end up with several iterations before settling on the final image.  I’ll change this or that, save each one, try something else, save that, and eventually get something I like that fits with the overall creation.  And I’ve even had inspirations while the final render is taking place and stopped the render to make the changes.  Thing is, don’t be afraid to make changes.  You might surprise yourself one time with a result you didn’t expect but looks wonderful.

Yes I agree.  One of the best features of Bryce is the incremental saves, so you never need lose anything and can always go back steps.

Bryce saves incrementally as long as the first saved image is numbered.

Bryce saves incrementally as long as the first saved image is numbered.

And has no zero. If you have a file name myfile01, the incremental save will make it to myfile2. A bug reported already with Bryce 5.

@bullit35744 - two things that bug me a bit. The first is the cottage which looks like a picture. Try to rotate it a bit so we can see a bit more from a second side. The other is the black shadow on the left railing. If you can select just this railing (or create a 2D face with the same material and align it over the black part), and give it a tiny bit of ambiance, 5 or 10% at most. Just to break the black. Otherwise, really, this is a very nice scene!
