All of these renders were made by me entirely using my computer, there are no elements of real photography. The fact that we can do this with today’s technology is mind blowing when you take into account all the physics the computer is crunching. The way light refracts off of objects and back onto itself thousands of times before leaving is something that until very recently was simply too heavy for computers to handle.
The terrains, atmospheres trees and everything you see in these images is completely editable to a very granular level. The only limit ids your imagination given enough time, patience and computing power.
These are the major steps in the making of each of these renders
Experiments with mountains and snow
Experiments with trees and light refracting off a heavy atmosphere
Experiments with the dynamics of water
