, here's the 1920x1080 render, changed things up a little so it sat better with the aspect ratio.
Its attached to the download button below and I left it in bitmap format
(you might want to convert it to whatever suits you).
This one is a 1024x576 .jpg version, for posting here.
I'll leave this as my final entry for now, (I might still find some time to do something else, really like the idea of doing Shelob)
, Everything was done in 3dsMax, never used Blender so I cant help you out with that. I used Dreamscape plug-in for atmospherics and procedural terrain texturing.
If I get the time I might just do a walkthrough tutorial if enough folks were interested.
