How could I improve this - various questions?
I have been working on this scene for a while now and am at the present stage highlighted below with the printouts.
I would like some constructive critique on the work - both good and bad as to where I can improve...
I have tried to put some sea in the scene but this was so unrealistic I removed it again - so any feedback on how to get sea with rolling waves (not a storm!) and a ripple on the seashore would be handy... I've yet to come across something telling me how to go about this...
Secondly I would like to add some log tyoe fencing - how would I go about this... I could also do with some kind of wooden gate...
And thirdly - I want to convert this scene into some kind of night scene too - so how would I add an old fashioned street light to the scene? I tried with a llighting object but this went simply stupid and looked too severe - I want to be able to have rays of light shining down onto the road and the underside of the branches.
I know this is a lot to ask in one topic, but I would welcome any advice and suggestions by all members - new and old!
Be nice or harsh - I'm tough and can take it!
