No one noticed something in the image with the ruins of Eréphore? :squirrel:

 :o Ancient writings. .. ? Cannot decipher it though. ..  %confuso
Seaman has deciphered well! ;)

wait a second... lets do a quick aerial archaeological survey...




ah... it seems that the people back then build a temple at the mountain of Gormois to worship a god named "AkALLAN"... regarding the size of this religious site it must have been a major cult.

(... and they seemed quite serious about their copyright :D)
One never laughs with copyright! :squirrel:

Stunning update again ! Everything is perfectly done but i prefer the city center pic even more. So busy and full of life with great details everywhere !  &apls &apls &apls
A real pleasure to watch, thanks you.  :thumbsup:
Thanks to you too! :)

This is some great looking imagery.
Yes, each scene is unique but partly inspired by some real places. ;)

Hello everyone,

For a moment I did not return to the forums because I had quite a lot to do. So to come back nicely I decided to make a video before continuing my Dahammas area. It is a video related to the creation of a pond, I hope you like it! ;)

Title => Tutorial : how to make a pond

Watching the tutorial => turns to an entire creation of a (gorgeous !) piece of landscape  :D $%Grinno$%
Thanks for the comment! I can not say "how to do something", but rather "create something". I only show my way of creating a pond, but I do not explain how to do it. Even if I explain how to do it, I do not have the absolute knowledge and the mastery to sell me thus. :)

Nice, I was just planning to make a pond  :D That would be a great piece of inspiration!
Thank you feyss. :)

Looks a bit like Vincent van Gogh telling us how to make a Sunflower painting....  ;D
It's the hand of the master that actually makes the image (pond in this case) beautiful and realistic.
But anyway.... it's nice to see how you do it!
Thank you, yes you are right. :thumbsup:

Yeah exactly, clickbait title!!  :angrymore:  $%Grinno$% 

Great work! Also nice of you to include mod links - tho the link for rrp pasture flora goes to VIP RuralPack.  ;)
XD Thanks, I've fixed the problem...

I sat there wondering why you hadn't made sure that the water completely covered the ground. Watch my awe as you turned random water splotches into incredibleness!

Of course, it doesn't help that southern California has essentially no water (though we've gotten the rain storms recently). Still, this is incredible. Moreso to see the process; hopefully it won't stay put there by itself, though? Have some other farms and villages nearby?
Nature is not everything regular and clean-cut, so I always try to make things a bit random and blurry.

To answer your question, I do not think anything will come around this pond. But why not create something else in this style soon! :) Thank you very much for your comment!

... and another amazing "tutorial".   It's more of a "look behind the scenery"  ;)

Thank you so much for sharing!

Thanks to you for the nice comment! ;)

Always cool seeing how you do things. Great vid and lovely scenery :thumbsup:
Thank you korver! :)

That video more like a WIP process of a nice scenery than a tutorial for me... Great job on it!
Sure enough, it's not really a tutorial but I can not either say it's a "let's play" I think. Thank you for the comment. :)

Indeed! You've achieved an incredible effect! I was looking at the video and admire this soft and fluffy-looking grass - so detailed, like you indeed was painting on a canvas. The FrankU's comparison to Van Gogh hits the nail in the head for me!  &apls
Hey, thank you kbieniu7 for your comment. I'm glad to see that you can compare my work to an artist! :)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
