    Yes, this was heavily inspired by XanaToast's latest image, just in case you're wondering. Obviously his is much better.

    Keep in mind that the buildings were intended to be seen from a distance, not up-close. The contrast in texture quality is very noticeable

    You should try giving them more motion to what they're doing, in Xana's image it's a fast pace 'down the hatch here comes the frag loser' but these guys look a bit bored given the situation they're in

    Made this because boring military poses are my go-to for when I don't have creative ideas.

    Looking pretty nice, but IMO you could improve on the lighting. The colors really blend into each other, and there is very little defined directional light. It could work for a cloudy day, but everything seems to have more of a yellow-green tint.

    I'll improve my lighting when people stop putting excessive amounts of noise in their pictures.

    Made this to rectify the lack of Korean War pics on this site.

    You really think anyone cares enough about you "improving" your lighting to change their ways of editing pictures because in your subjective point of view "excessive amounts of noise" is a bad thing? Who do you think you are? Hoooooonestly.

    Noise serves a legitimate purpose when it comes to images locked to an 8bit colordepth. Reduction or outright removal of banding in exchange for noise.
    Which can be very severe with broad color gradients some of the more colorful images posted here hold.

    In fact; banding is a issue beyond just pretty screenshots.
    One of the obvious in hindsight ones is normalmaps. They also serve as a fantastic visual example of problem (banding) and solution (noise).



    And if you want even more bickering about noise, a German model and texture artist also sent me this the other day.
    It's full of all sorts of good stuff on noise and lighting.

    Edit:

    Despite this I've only ever used noise on renders a total of two times. Imagine that.

    Yeah, I don't usually pose fast pace stuff, I've always posed generic military poses with not much movement at all.

    You should try adding shadows, right now it looks like shading and rim lighting alone. The lighting on the soldiers for instance is inconsistent with their environment, they shouldn't be lit like that. Are you using lamps?
    sorry that i havent replied earlier
    im trying to fix my shadows right now and yep, im using lamps
    i would appreciate any advices

    Looks great. The atmosphere inside of that tree shouldn't be illuminated though. A darker interior would also make the troopers stand out more.

    Ah, that may be the fog doing that, probably should have set it further back, when I did the lighting I made sure not to illuminate the interior of he tree trunk. But thanks for the tip, appreciate it.
