Ryan's Notes on "Enshrouded (2009)":
I really wanted to give Vue d'Esprit's clouds a workout here. They had just come out with a new version which allowed clouds to cast shadows on each other (something which, believe it or not, wasn't possible before). This image actually started out as clouds only but I added the forest late in the process to give everything a sense of scale. This image took an absurd amount of time to render (over 10 days) so I had to wait until I purchased a new workstation in May 2011 until I could devote the rendertime needed to produce the multiscreen. I finally finished it in Sept 2011 after a staggering 1000 hour render.
