Very interesting. As the image continues to the right it feels almost like an oil painting. Has anyone on Deviant art attempted that yet? Working with another artist the create an image that progresses from a digital to a "painted" image?
i work always with this tutorials: [link] [link] [link]
...or open bryce...then click on "Symmetrical Lattice" , then open the terraineditor by clicking on the "E" on the lattice, now click on the arrow down on the top right of the picture, choose "solid",then on the "editing tools" on "new".......now click on the "Pictures-tab"...click on "load" over the first thumb...choose now any .jpg u have.....( a old render or so...)...
click apply.......now erase the flat parts in the picture with the brush...use "raise/lower" under the "Elevation-tab" to make the object flat.....and use "smoothing" for smooth edges....., thats all.....good luck
