Most of the images I have been working on lately (using DAZ + Photoshop) follow a sort of Renaissance format of portrait or figure with a landscape background (like the Mona Lisa, for example). I usually just take the landscape from a Renaissance painting. This is quite limiting however - it seems I should be able to create something like this in DAZ Studio. (See a couple of examples I posted below.) The format includes toy-like hills, woods, roads and villages - fading away to the horizon.
I have seen (and purchased) several different types of terrain; also medieval village sets, tree sets, etc. But these do not work so well (for me at least) when I try to create small, distant villages, woods, etc etc. I would appreciate any suggestions from other DAZ users.
