Just wanted to show what I've been up to the last time.
Had an order to re-render a birdseye view from a industrial area. It's going on a billboard 7x3.5 meters, with a lot of text, enz. For this one I used PRowalker and the Qck mode, and a line overlay to get a maquette feeling.

(The original render is twice this size.)

Nice, I like the style. I think it's a pretty appealing compromise between real and non-photorealisic.

Is it a local client for you? Would be cool to see a picture of the billboard if you're in the same area!

Initially, I thought it's not raytraced and then I saw reflections in the glass.  It's a very detailed, huge model.  Pretty amazing. What would happen if you added HDRI backgrounds, like a sunset?

Thanks Justin, yeah, it's in a town nearby, so I will see the billboard in real. [smile]

To reduce the filesize I made 'cardboard' trucks in the distance and an 'architectural' 3D tree. I tried the 2D Angled face-me trees from the Browser, but if the sun is shining from the side, you get a very narrow shadow.

Hey Dave, I tried HDRI background first, but the problem with birdseye view / large terrains, is that you need a HDRI with wide views on the horizon. here the trees get in the way.

and here's a test with a sunset.

In the next I removed my horizon object. (very large circle)

But it's still not convincing...
I'm testing different HDRI's, because every HDRI gives you, obvious, different results on light, color and shadow.

The 2D browser trees are created as face me trees.  But if you want to exploded them, regroup them and rotate them so you get better shadows, that might work.

that is one thing to do, sometimes I copy-rotate the image in the component, so I get a nice shadow.
(But then the tree doesn't look that good.)

I think the solution that Atrodler got for this also a nice one. [smile]
