    Default Taking Suggestions -- Please -- on adding clouds!

    Here are a few different links to the same scene (varying angles.) I am just experimenting with having large ..um, Muriels?. that the word..sec "Wonder Twin Powers, Activate! Form of Google!" Mural.. There we go!

    I am just experimenting with have large Murals here and there where people would feel comfortable sitting down and relaxing. What I am completely stumped on is how to implement some cloud coverage of any decent kind. Here is what I have:

    1st Person View of the scene, about where I would like to have everything click from.

    Different angle

    Different angle

    This one was taken to give you a size reference (Horses are at max size.)
    3rd Person view. I'd like everything to click from about this angle.

    I've received some advice about snow mounds and oval snow mounds from the Dim chat channel (Thanks Bata.. um, I think for the lamps as well! Forgive me, I was never great with names and it is late.) and have taken some snow items and actually put in the "Waterfall" in the scene from trying new items. Alas it is late, I am going to bed/nap and if anyone else has successfully made clouds work for them in a similar circumstance I would be highly appreciated for the assist.

    Haven't tried clouds yet myself, but if you can get your hands on a couple of Frosty's and inset them into the backing wall correctly, you can prob get some good puffy cumulus looking clouds mebbe?

    ROFL, close enough, and you're quite welcome for both, Beph!

    For clouds, I know Eightynine@Greybriar has made murals with some, perhaps an idea would be to hop on a tourist and check out his dimensions, or catch him in the DA channel and pick his brain.

    Make sure to vary the size & rotation/depth of the snow ovals. This way you have some variety/spontaneity with your clouds. You should get some puffy feels from a distance. I am not sure 100% if it will work how you want, just how I would tackle it first if I was doing clouds.
