Do you like this at all? :)

Background is a photo rendered as a plane in 3d, while the cabin and stuff around it are full 3d models.

Very good, but beware of the whites, when you plan a 3d the whites get darker. :wink:

I rather like it. I think it looks good.
The plain backdrop works very well with the lone 3D model.

I like it.

I would lose the contrasting shadow on the wall. It looks out of place on a grey sunless winter day.

Thank you all :)

Experimenting a little more with lighting in Gimp, post-render in Blender:

Looking for feedback on lighting mostly (eg of the sky, and if it looks alive or not). These aren't the final color tones or the finished models/textures.

I like the new style very much.
I think the suspension of disbelief comes from the tall, flat white wall. Add a few details there, or a bush in front of it, or a slope of snow at its bottom; and it will look cool.
Also that wall is very very thick compared t othe houses' walls. Not very realistic.

Thanks. Yes, the wall is a bit sturdier than expected, and looks it too in the second pic's left half...

Will be improved later on, and other objects will be added.

I like it. (nod)
The snow seems very rough though. As though it might be concrete or something.
Is there any softer textures you could use for the snow?


Here's a quick example of what I mean. And I did this by just applying a bit of blur to the snow.


And here's another example, with a different type of blur.

Agreed, i will definitely change the snow texture by the end :D

Are the colours too yellow? Any other suggestion about colours/lighting?

I love the colours and lighting, I think they add some nice atmosphere to the whole background.

About the last background: While I like the render more than the first you posted with the thick walls, I think the foreground and background don't blend as nicely as the others did because of the different colors.

I always liked the idea of using real photos for games, especially for a horror game (even did a walkcycle of myself :-D ) this looks pretty cool!

maybe put some 3d trees in front of the background, it looks so flat.
