Today ..posting some old stuff that I found during a harddrive cleanup. Maya have some really cool undiscovered/hidden features. One of them are the Heightfield. Which gives you a fast preview of your displaced mesh. Here I use a combination of ramp and 2D noise to generate this almost alien landscape. Very useful as basic setup for epic mattepainting.
More landscaping... another pet project for LOTU (Legends Of The Underground : ) this time an Angelic Garden for Demi Gods . Some breakdowns of the layers. I really enjoyed the project unfortunately this project didn't receive the publicity and budget to grow into it's full potentials.
