A render using atmospheres and plants from Linda Daireaux’s Incredibly Lush Tropical Paradise. The ecosystem covering the island is a modified version of one that came in the pack. I moved the palms into a separate layer with altitude dependant distribution because they didn’t look right when they were breaking the lines of the mountains […]
