Now that I’ve gotten halfway decent at using The Plant Factory I have turned my attention to another one of my helper programs; World Machine. World Machine allows for the creation of detailed landmasses with realistic erosion and texturing (going far beyond what Vue offers natively).

I’ve already created a few renders using World Machine (last year’s “Valley of the Sun“, “Valley of the Stars” and the “Cliffs” series) but now it’s time to go deeper.

I’m sure “Castlemere” will draw comparisons to “Highland Spring” (the elevated camera, the color scheme, etc) and that isn’t entirely unintentional. One big difference here is that I’ve populated the scene with deciduous vegetation (rather than evergreens) which will allow me to do a proper Autumn version when the time comes.

I hope you enjoy the new render. Let me know what you think!

PS: I’ve moved “Nemo’s Garden (Night)” into the Pickle Jar for now.
