@Chohole, i mean your - Childish - looking Picture (not sure - ... - so spell in English correct?)
Yes I guess you meant that one. I built all the little vehicles, and the houses using primitives and alternate primitives and boolean tecniques. Rendered that one with TA enabled to bet more of a Carttoon look to it, having got quite toon looking mats in the mat editor.
getting the face to show in the one cloud was just one of those lucky things that happen sometimes when using volume mats on clouds.
@electro-elvis, thank you for including the links. I like what you have made of this tutorial, it is a good composition for this subject, to keep the horizon line so low and feature the open sky, very evocative of the space. Unlike in photography there is no issue with placing the sun in the view, so here is something you could experiment with further.
By coincidence (though mine’s more a wide estuary than a lake), I’ve been dipping in and out of this scene for the past two days.
It started with the top pic and at the moment it looks like the bottom one.
I only rendered these three so far but I’ve had so many inbetween variants that I abandoned without rendering…
