Ryan's Notes:This piece started out as a learning exercise using Quadspinner's excellent "Geoglyph" plugin for World Machine. The background mountains and foothills were modeled using this software.
Unfortunately my render bogged down unexpectedly around the 2/3rds mark and I paused it to work on another idea. Unfortunately when I tried to reload this project the scene file failed to open. Grrrrr!
Fortunately I had saved my render in progress and was able to use a few tricks to finish it off. Unfortunately this means I don't have any scene data available to render a multiscreen, winter versions, further revisions, etc.
I hope you can enjoy it as is though!
