Heyy guys, 

Here's a wip of a volcano with Redshift. I've made the trees with a custom generator in houdini, the terrain is made with heighfields, and textures/leaves/grass is quixel. Next step is the simulations :D 

(this is not the final lighting, and of course not the final background :ph34r:)

Feedback is welcome

So, to update, just added some smoke ! Tell me what you think of it ! Next step is to create some clouds and work on lighting !

First of all, good job.
But what troubles me is the shape of the volcano. May be it's intentional but this shape kind of "pain de sucre" is not realistic. The curvature of a volcano is in the other direction and they are much flatter. at most it forms a perfect triangle.
Maybe that's why it appear small for a volvano in the scene.

Yeah I understand what you mean ! I'll try to change the shape, and scale down the trees so the volcano will have a more realistic scale ! Thank you !

Hey so I just reshaped the volcano, I need to rework the foreground to make it more interesting, but there we go :

I'll also add some clouds and maybe more smoke !

Tell me what you think !

The volcano shape is far better. And the smoke is beautiful.
But at this point it is difficult to give an opinion without knowing what you want to achieve.
A simulation and just a cool render of this simulation.
A realistic image, an illustrative image ?
Do you intend to do color grading ?
Because the lighting seems a bit strange to me. It's probably because of the foreground. The grass is both too dark and green while the smoke lightning is white and strong.
From an "artistic" point of view just crop the bottom with the grass, and strengthen the red lava lighning
This will give a more interesting and mysterious picture IMO.

But if you rework the foreground it's another story.
It's endless :lol:

Yeah I see what you mean ! I have an idea of what I want, I just wanted to show the new shape of the volcano to get feedback on it, as the previous one wasn't that realistic !

I'll show more soon !

So just an update, I've really worked the lighting and made a bit of comp in photoshop with a quick and dirty painted sky. I'm thinking of adding some more smoke now, as the volcano looks kind of shy with this tiny smoky champ :huh:

 

Cheeeeers,

Yes, the atmosphere is here now !

By the way, I was surprised that by clicking on the image although it is not so much larger the quality is far much better.
On the thumbnail the smoke is totaly washed.

Yeah seems like I can't upload 4K images on here, so I have to lower the resolution to be able to upload it.

Here's the 4K image :

So here's the final

Hope you'll like it ! I've made this little project to improve my skills in the creation of a shot with fx and make sure I can handle all the steps !

 

Cheers,
