I made these in terragen. they are the same piece modified sligtly each time.
if anyone wants a link to the program i'll post, and i'll try to explain some things if you want to try.

edit-http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/





i like the last one the best, its perty :)
make some good loading screens for w3 maps,
gonna go get Vue... its better, like proffesional cinematic style.


ok, my desktop, i did a little lightning and camera adjustments, plus upped the resolution.

433762 quadrilaterals.
14:13 render time.

woot..
edit



its like a big icey island, all the waters frozen.

The third one looks completely real. I couldn't tell the difference from that and a real one. I wish i knew how to do that. I think some of my friends know how to do that really well.

the mountains look funky because i made the canyon effect way to high, i thought it would be more... well... like a canyon, not just really damn high.

just be lazy and follow the link that guy posted.. download terragen and you are 3 mouseclicks away from creating such an image..

i dont consider it artwork and i dont like it, even for terragen, these look horrible. is this your first try on this?
you didnt use textures on the surface, no after-touchup.. nothing.

just a plain render straight out of a "click-and-your-a-leet-artist" program.

none of them look particularly real o_O the specular levels are wrong on most of the "dry" area's, as well as the diffuse, they look plasticky. the water doesnt look real either, because its all the same level of rippling. where you should have higher in some area's and almost flat in others.

also, the shadows dont fall naturally either, theres too much black and white, clear as crystal heres a shadow, here is the light. when actually there should be a lot of places where its hazy, and not quite either light or dark.

that and the program requires you to make 0 effort. so you get a 0/10

Seriously, you should atleast edit them abit to show some effort. The ice around that last one looks nothing like ice should.

Actually, you can apply various effects to make the terrain look jagged, smooth, bumpy, or whatever you like. Plus you can alter surface maps to change the look of the terrain. You can also manually create the terrain yourself without randomly generating it.

Yeh its kinda Lazy.
But still it somehow has something.
Cause you can really make some nice landscape Backgrounds or try to recreate and place where you went before.
And add some PS effects like lightning and such stuff.

Too Bad that is not FREE Roaming thru the world where is randomly created .That would own. Even if its and empty land.

your pc wouldnt be able to handle it, this requires more strength of your pc than hl2, battlefield 2 and doom 3 combined if you could free roam...
