ok i have finished working on this for today "i think" i have looked at it to long. in the image below you will notice i have changed the landscape and added in a few stand ins. the cylinders are 6 units high and the backshift bridge is 20X16 units. i do appreciate any feedback on this.

please feel free to mark it up if you like :)

thanks

This looks better, I think. You still need to make the different plateaus have different heights though :)

On a side note, it's nice to see somebody actually working and making progress on a piece of fan art.

The chasms need to be much deeper I think. >>'  I could be wrong though.  At the current scale probably 60-75 unites deep on average.

OK i have attempted to make the suggested changes....... i am at 1.7 million polys right now for this terrain so i am about as far as i can go for now. i also zoomed in on this image to hopefully show a better perspective.

I'd say that looks just about right. It's not quite what I'd pictured but I can't find any fault with it compared to the descriptions in the book. :)
Just an idle comment. My comments are often idle. I can never get them to do any solid work.

It's very rounded at the edges, more so that it probably should be. Shattered edges, not worn (at least not a the top).

If you're at 1.7M polys, I think you should stop modeling for a bit, and start optimizing. For a barren, cracked landscape that is WAY high. Flatten it out some and use maps to regain the subtle variations in terrain.

thanks for the replies, i agree in this pic it looks kinda soft and chewy :) but once i get some textures on it and add some other details and get into Maya to render i think it will look much differently. i am going to move on for awhile and model some bridges, plants and a shard bearer for a hero shot.

shard bearer or radiance? what details should be used on the armor? what colors... i am open to suggestions

I don't know if it's accurate or not, but my vision has always been that the walls of the chasms would go straight down, or possibly even undercut the top by a bit.  So that the bottom of the chasm is wider than the top, due to the flood of dirt and rock rivers that run through them during storms.  So less of a sloping valley "U" shape, and more "|_|" shape... if that makes sense.

I agree with this.

I like it!  That's pretty freaking close to what I imagined.  Awesome job!

It looks freaking amazing!  The bottoms of the chasms still need to be a bit wider.

It could just be me, but I always imagined it to be more red colored.  Then again I guess red wouldn't make much sense considering all of the deposits from the storms.  So I'm probably wrong.
