I have been busy installing XP on a new larger hard drive. I have tested many programs and now have decided what ones will get installed. I figured I would get a start on a new look first. I installed the Zune theme.

I like that TheTerrorist_75 I installed that Zune theme too. I want that wallpaper though, where did you get it? If it isn't online somewhere can you you email it to me?

I made one new wallpaper:

Control

Beware dialup users it is at the screen resolution of 1440 x 900

New wallpaper I made while I was listening to the song The Ballad of Ira Hayes by Johnny Cash if you have never heard that song you should.

I'm giving Terragen2 Preveiw another try....rendering is verrrrrry sloooooow, even with the preveiw window....or it's my computer... :blush: Still working out some area's yet. Hope to get something soon.

Also just started working with DAZ Studio.....so far it's great....but still trying to see what does what and there is a lot of functions to play around with. :wacko:

Well after a few hours of reading a manual and testing I managed to get a raw image from Terragen 2 Preview...

Rendering is very slow...plus learning the functions...makes it a bit hard.

Here is a first attempt with nothing to special...this was a first run test...

Test 1 This took about 37 min. on Quick Render.

Test 2 This took 5 hours. 29 min. 53 sec. with very little additional textures added to the the mountains. There sure is a lot you can do with it though so far. I'm anticipating the final release is going to be really good.

I suppose it's also good to note that my system is not the fastest and considered old (about 5 yrs.), also not intended for intense graphics... :blush:

Thanks Handplane....

Well I found some trees that I imported into Terragen 2, I wanted to keep everything in this landscape as simple as possible so I could see what the results would look like. The preview window doesn't give much detail therefore rendering the picture has to be done.

This demo on "Quick Render" took about 2 hours. Tree Test

That looks good RV56 I have been avoiding Terragen 2 I am going to go ahead and buy Terragen 0.9.43 it is a large amount $99.00 but to get a bigger resolution I need to buy it.

I made two new wallpaper:

One is called Brand New the other is called Life02 the second is at 1440 x 900 so dial up users beware.

Finally decided to change my wallpaper on my main rig. Still the same character though. Rena from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Released in the US as When They Cry)

An e-buddy of mine got bored one day and made this pic so I decided to mod it a little so my car could be above the start bar and made it my wallpaper. You shoulda seen the killer pic he made of this other TennSpeed member's supra. Oh it was cool.

Boy this pic was before I "restored" my headlights and they look horrible. Too bad cause it was an otherwise awesome pic I took of it.

*Forgot to mention that this is my laptop
