Finally done with this thing... took me a while :]
It's supposed to be a sunrise over the plains of somewhere outside Lordaeron. It's still only a WIP, so I may add more to it later.

I don't think it's your fault, but I dislike how the lighting abruptly changes suddenly rather than fading as you look up the foreground. Nonetheless, it's simple, but decent. Well done.

You have officially surpassed me.

You seem to have figured out lighting really well. This is my favorite terrain you have done.

Well, great effect :D

But I followed your tutorial about 'suns', but my 'sun' turned out to be blue! I don't know how to change the color of the Light From Above/Light From Above (Angled)...
He said it was just for fun. He changed the time to midnight and i assume he removed the fog (from ~Void~'s tutorial). He just wanted to show you guys what it would look like. xD

Anyways. It is very good. It looks nice but it looks more like the barrens, with that dried up kinda style. The small rocks look similar to tree trunks and the dried up terrain makes it look like lumberjacks clear-cut the area.
