    Post Fighting with Mountains

    Testing my ability to make mountains. I followed one of the tuts but then I always just end up painting the whole thing.

    This is just a tiny project where I am working on my method of creating them but I figured I would post it for folks to kick around.

    It looks like a good start but I'd have to see it bigger and in a range.

    You know, you are right, the style does look better in a range of mountains as in my WIP in another thread.

    Still, it seems like it takes me too much effort to make a mountain. I guess I'll just keep experimenting until I get what I want.

    It seems when I use the tutorials, I end up with a mountain that starts out ok but then doesn't shape up correctly near the top. It's like the top implodes or something...Hey, maybe I should just settle for making volcanoes

    I've been doing a lot of mountains lately and I reckon isolated mountains take more work to make them look right. A lot easier in mountains.

    Damn now I have to work out how to do volcanoes (I already have a couple of plateus I like).
