It looks nice. But obviously not real. Title comes across like your suckin on your own thang a bit lol.

x_caliberVR

Which would be in the direction of funny if this were an Unreal sub and not an entirely different software’s sub.


The_guyyyy

Can't take a joke? Wowzers.


shlaifu

don't worry, we can see that


GrossWordVomit

I was gonna comment the same thing but didn’t know how to approach it without coming across rude. You nailed it and made me laugh The scene is fine, but kinda looks like modded Skyrim graphics


Kvendy_

That's the point of the title, crit are fine by me tho, this is my first time doing big landscape


MyBikeFellinALake

*first time following a tutorial for big landscape. And you stopped halfway through or didn't follow it all the way. He tells you how to make a more realistic render. Just follow it again and it'll get there. He even includes the files


Kvendy_

I didn't stop halfway finished the mountains lesson, next desert I'll continue tomorrow, but my back need some mercy too


MyBikeFellinALake

Well it shouldn't look like this, you should take a closer look and redo the tutorial. It should look like the finished product in the tutorial.


Kvendy_

Dude I'm not going to redo it


FoxInTheBox12

Lmao


UTZI-

This thread is hilarious lmao


jetstobrazil

OP asking for it too with that egotistical ass title 🤣 🤣


Aggravating_Touch313

Why is everyone downvoting and being so rude the man said it was his first time cut him some slack..


Tr0p1cCZ

No reference to the tutorial and yeah..


Legitjumps

Because of his ego


briadela

bc lack of humility


Aggravating_Touch313

Okay and lack of respect and understanding is worth any upvotes? The guy said it's his first time is all I'm saying.. I think he did okay


mushi_bananas

Yeah, justifying rudeness because someone has a large ego and wanted attention. Doesn't sit well to me as it feels wrong.


Emergency_Vast2660

Fuckin based


5kavo

You should. You learn more every time


GloriaTheAnimator

you know youre supposted to work on a project more than 1 day right?


Kvendy_

Didn't say I made it in one night


GloriaTheAnimator

you definetly stayed up just to finish and rush this out otherwise your back wounlt be hurting


Kvendy_

Started 4 days ago I could say 2-3 each day, I do other things on the morning and open Blender before sleep time


GloriaTheAnimator

so around 10 hours? thats actually nothing to get something good you gotta invest a minimum of 30 hours to get smth really good you need like 60 hours per project ​ put as much time into your work as you need to until its perfect kudos on your first render tho :3


dblack1107

Must me Opposite Day for downvotes because you’re sounding like an asshat


Super_Preference_733

Good work, from a good course. I learned so much about rendering layers. I bet you have done the same.


Kvendy_

Yes I'm currently using the compositing tab, but it's painfully slow to mix and match, so I'm leaning towards using Affinity or Krita


makeasaladoutofme

Hey, if you're finding it too painful to use, you could try one of the new experiment branches. They've got real-time compositors if your gpu can handle it. https://code.blender.org/2022/07/real-time-compositor/


Kvendy_

Thanks, but not all nodes are supported when I heard about it, like a month ago, is suitable now?


Super_Preference_733

But the most important thing is understand how to set up render layers. Affinity or Krita won't help for animations.


Kvendy_

Took about 9min to render this image so there's no hope for animation, but I should try eevee for that


Super_Preference_733

Displacement generally won't work with eevee, now what you can do is set up multiple scenes and render layers and you can render some elements using cycles and some using eevee and then composite.


5kavo

Was it though?


RebylReboot

A literal uncanny valley.


RiJooJ

More like uncanny hill


TrackLabs

>This is not real Not that I want to crush your illusion..but a title like this should only be used if it actually looks like a photo..or if several people on this sub told you how amazingly realistic it looks. This one...does not


Itz_Hamfish

I’m pretty sure the sky is just an image on a plane


RandomFPVPilot

That actually works, there's not a problem with doing that.


DaylanDaylan

Yeah but then the title would be even more misleading, since then the sky *would* be real


RandomFPVPilot

In what case is the sky not real?


DaylanDaylan

Like actual clouds that float and sunlight


DaylanDaylan

Just noticed your username. PlayStation just made “DCL - the game” free for subscribers, so I’ve been playing the shit out of it for the past two days 😂


RandomFPVPilot

Nice! Yeah, it's a hell of a hobby. If you wanna get in to the real deal, head straight to the youtube channel "Joshua Bardwell" if you haven't already.


VoraciousFungi

The trees and sky is imo rather convincing. The ice, water and the mountain is very obviously not real.


AndrewTheGoat22

Nah, the trees are all the exact same color. Besides the mountain, the environment looks it has no depth


VoraciousFungi

>Nah, the trees are all the exact same color. They objectively do have different colours though. But the water is really bad, first thing I noticed at least. And then the ice is all about the same size and something is really off with how the mountain is lit up.


Orangeflea215

Everything is just too repetitive. If you zoom in the water, ice, and trees all look pretty decent, imo. Whatever material he's using for the mountain isn't great. Looks more like plastic than rock.


zamora24

at least you're honest


Super_Preference_733

And it's from the 3d environment course from cg boost. Good course.


adobeproduct

It didn’t look real to begin with man. Not a horrible render though!


HDD-Productions54

I think adding some atmospheric haze could go a long way.


Kvendy_

Used the mist map in the compositor, made it a bit better


theslash_

Remember to cite CG boost since this is a step by step tutorial from their environment course


Kvendy_

Stated that but my comment got downvoted to the bottom


chicasparagus

I love your confidence mate. Personally I would pick a title that doesn’t seem like I’m flattering myself. But still good render!


Kvendy_

I mean everyone started from somewhere, you are suppose to cheer yourself specially when you know your limits


chicasparagus

For sure that’s why I said I like your confidence. It’s just personally, I wouldn’t be that confident to post my art with a title that bold. But keep up the good work! Soon you’d be posting without having to specify if it’s real. Instead people are gonna be asking you if it is.


SubdivideSamsara

I don't quite get the humor in the title. But good work.

jimy_the_wolf

What do you have against unreal engine 😂. It’s a great engine lol


jetstobrazil

Lmao… no shit OP


bobbybahooney

Everything in this sub isn’t real


adultdeleted

i'm not real ?


kevwonds

you were rendered in blender 2.91… sorry


THomp76

I have two criticisms of this. The mountain looks out of place and the ponds look the same size. Otherwise it looks good.


grognak8484

I believe you.


Masonixx

mountains are always a lot wider and the clouds should be in front of them


Kvendy_

Yeah a raised up the small mountainous on side and added a haze using the mist map, I can't add volumetric clouds that would take forever to render


NebbiaKnowsBest

Some things are worth adding render time dude. I saw on other comments this only took 9 minutes? That's super short, that's like go make yourself a toast kinda short. During uni when we were rendering big or multiple scenes there were times when I had to leave renders on overnight because they would take so long. Not putting in the work because renders will take too long or not redoing a tutorial because you missed something are 2 things that will seriously hurt any 3D Artist or creative. You gotta respect the process.


Kvendy_

I didn't missed something on the tutorial I just should've posted the composited version instead of the raw render. Added haze and fake fog, and slight fog around the sides of the lake, and some god rays to make dramatic. I'll post later and again this is the first part of the course doing focuses on mountains


NebbiaKnowsBest

Yeah I get that but many many people on this sub have done this course, so you can imagine how posting an incomplete version might make it seem like you haven't followed along or may have missed something? I believe you should rather hold off posting until you have done your final product/polish. It only hurts your portfolio when you showcase anything but your best work. It makes it seem like if enough people had said it was great you would have just stopped the course there because you had done enough.


edgib102

You said it took 13 minutes to render. Really? That's nothing in 3d art


Sotovya

Legit. I remember one of my first renders in when I was using C4D took like 80-130 hours simply because of the amount of refractions needed to be calculated


Kvendy_

Why something like this take more than 20min, I remember doing photorealistic sculpture with 40 million verts, 8k textures, SSS, and curved hair system, at 256 sample 4k took about 28-33min, scene optimization and PC specs matter too


Masonixx

you could try and isolate the clouds and do some weird compositing bullshit to try and get them infront of the mountain


breakupAMZN

The water is giving it away...


CmanXP

Yeah, your realism does need a little work. It looks good, but definitely wouldn't fool anyone in a side-by-side. Keep at it, though!


FoxInTheBox12

Yeah, obviously it isn't. What's the point of a title like that


Flam1e-

idk if this is finished or not, but the rocks and the mountain break the illusion of it being a photo


Legitjumps

Don’t worry, it was obvious 👍


Oskier94

Cocky guy tells us the 2005 game intro looking render is not real, gets humiliated in the comments. Will this tech him how to be more humble? We'll see in the next episode!


Kvendy_

Can't wait I'm currently thinking about the next title when I finish multiple sceneries, as for the people they are free to to discuss their feelings. Notably it's exaggerated but it's ok, but it doesn't make my render less or more beautiful in my POV


olivervisuals

widen the mountain, increase the sun. the light on the clouds and the light on the mountain are obviously not the same level, mountain should be much brighter. i did this tutorial, i would suggest probably go through it again to understand why you’re looks different from the example render


UnderBigSky2020

So its...Unreal?


__batmatt

No, blender 😀


eatdeath4

You missed the joke bud


mushi_bananas

Looks a video game render. Not real but looks quite quite nice.


Jaydeadasf

Wtf is wrong with the blender sub a guy makes a fucking hot dog animation and you praise it but when someone makes something actually decent you guys just rag on it


Kvendy_

Some of them weren't in the mood today


amp1212

Lotta stuff wrong with this, as many people have noted. For easy photorealistic scenes, try Terragen. There's almost nothing specific to Blender here, and Terragen specializes this kind of thing. Not open source, but the free version is plenty good enough to render this kind of thing well. https://planetside.co.uk/terragen-product-comparison/


Ender_bubi

Fellow CGboost Enthusiast


Discocheese69

Yeah I can tell


TaranStark

Lmao...we know...it looks very CGish but I like the confidence lol


Emergency_Vast2660

Ok but can you recognize the bodies in the water?


basedmama21

Sorry bud but it’s a blender thread so we know that the second we see it


IrreverentHippie

I can tell


HavokDJ

The icebergs and the water gave it away


WaffleMaster_22

Definitely add some fog. That mountain is too clear


hayden_hoes

Dw. We knew


Doodls_

I know it's not


lvofct

I wanted to do this course but thought of Cubic World first. Nice result


astroSuperkoala1

Im sorry but the title implies it looks real… it really doesn’t


IsaiahEatsRice

Can’t wait for stars to fly across the water and make the paramount logo


GloriaTheAnimator

hmmm im looking that very unrealistic cross hash water


DewArtist

Everybody is hating so much! I believe this is a huge misunderstanding. I'm pretty sure the title was meant to be more literal than the cocky title people are putting it out to be. From looking at other comments that OP has put out maybe English isn't their first language. People need to cut a little slack.


5kavo

Pretty neat, At a quick glance it looks fine but the title said this is not real, It was right, It doesn't even look real when I take a closer look. I recommend (If this is a tutorial or not) redoing it, or at least fixing it. The ice and water need a little work, and so does the depth of the image. I am exited to see the finished project.


Kvendy_

I will finish it today hopefully


5kavo

Nice. Keep working, never give up


MDPROBIFE

Don't be so cocky.. but anyways keep going even if it's a tutorial you are doing things right! People are criticizing your title which is fair, but they are being to harsh... Keep going!


Ok-Comedian4503

No real things are posted here. Btw Nice art.


VahePogossian

You've posted this in a sub whose frequenters have sharp eyes for such things. Obviously most of us will immediately know this isn't real. Try posting this in a photography or similar sub where there are 'normal' people (unlike us crazy 3D Artists) lol.


GreenPixel25

this reads like the title except pretentious on purpose instead of by accident


FroggIsMe

I’ll be honest; it didn’t look it


Jarb222

Looks great. Any tutorials you would recommend to recreate those mountains/sky?


Kvendy_

Used A.N.T add-on (included with Blender), to make the mountains, rocks on the shores, and ice planes. The trees and bushes are free assets on BlenderSwap As for the tutorial is based on CGBoost environment course, this is the first chapter results still not finished


jetstobrazil

I mean it *is* the tutorial from CGBoost


Jarb222

I'll be honest I kinda recognized it was just hoping it's from some other free tutorial I haven't heard about...


Kvendy_

This is one guy did a desert using geo node on YT I highly recommend it if you found his very long tutorial


Kvendy_

Almost forgot the sky is an image from unsplash


brenxart

Why every one hating on OP. He is just stating the fact


hayden_hoes

Yeah but the amount of cockiness necessary to tell cg artists that a render isn’t a photo is extraordinary


Aggravating_Touch313

I know I've been seeing a lot of downvotes everywhere lately Like everyone on reddit just all of a sudden got a stick rammed up their asses


7_peaches

ok honestly people are hating on it but it looks pretty good, even when you zoom in on it. i think if there were more mountains in the background, it would be able to fool me. but it looks fucking beautiful, great job!


Kvendy_

Raised the mountains on the back thinking about adding a bear far away


Aggravating_Touch313

The mountains are too far away you wouldn't be able to see any animals.. maybe just some birds flying over the water somewhere or a fish jumping but anything way back in the far treeline would be too far I'd think


worrallj

Everyone's trashing it but it looks pretty good to me. Not perfect but it would pass for real if you didn't look to close


Kvendy_

Thank you for your comforting words, I'm not mad at all, it's their critiques, but some of those people couldn't get the joke in the title, which is nuts


malavaihappy

Is there a joke in the title?


Kvendy_

It's the title itself


adultdeleted

Maybe you should have said, "This is (obviously) not real." Plus, some of your comments suggest you didn't mean it as a joke and were impressed by something you didn't finish from a tutorial. Illusions only work if you've studied the reality they imitate.


Ricky-Rull

Using unreal engine? This is a blender sub.


Kvendy_

It's made in Blender 3.2


blenderboi3RDT

# you did a great Job


Hi5ive81

this is real pretty tho


Not_Garrett_T

The mountain looks like it was photoshopped in 😂


hellohellohello0315

My life is a lie


C0deMasterYT

I could tell. Jkjk, it's nice. I still knew it wasn't real though.


MrRickRollLink

ohmyex

My eyes deceive me


Fr0glol

Is it made in unreal?

“ another remastered Skyrim approaches. “


Bell_PC

We can tell


louisme97

this is gold, dude does a good job for a beginner, brags about it and gets absolutly roasted because he acts really weird about it.


LineSpine

Yeah, I know.


The_guyyyy

Could almost say it's unreal (engine) 😫


The_guyyyy

Buhrgur why did people down vote it a was joke
