  1. May ask? Is it okay if I import a WoW Model? Which is Genn Greymane...

    Sure, Blizzard is probably credited.

    If not, then it's fine.

    Depends on your monitor and the AA settings of your graphics card.
    Of course.

    Come one guys, put your backs at it ;]

    You can try setting up virtual super resolution to render a picture above what your monitor can display, although I have not tested it with the World Editor (nor have I tried that method in general :D)
    Do report back if you try such a thing, I'm kinda curious :p

    That thing, seemingly, is for a Radeon graphics card and AMD driver. Mine is a 5-6 years old NVIDIA GeForce. So yeah, I would not! xD

    Huh, I thought Nvidia had something equivalent to that. Well, I might experiment with it a bit when I have the time to fool around.

    I'm sorry to say this. I haven't had any time left to do the final edit on the colouration as I am now on my first time ever overseas trip. So if there isn't any final output from me, please take my final wip as my final work. Sorry guys. I had great time, hopefully I can fully use my potential next time.

    Hey guys. How's it going? :]

    Thanks @PrinceYaser , that is correct @Marjosh38 :>

    I wanted to mention that in the events that you guys have ideas that require extension for the contest, I will grant it as always ^_^
    So do not hesitate to ask for one if certain things and happenings demand it.

    I haven't forgotten about entering if yer' all asking by the way. It's in the works as I'm speaking and not to mention that a certain someone will show up soon enough fluttering around.

    Good luck folks!

    For you guys who are feeling lost: get references!

    Look at a ton of art - the bigger your repertoire of images seen, the easier it'll be to come up with ideas for your own stuff. This works for every art though, music, drawing, etc.

    Here are some terrain galleries with interesting use of doodads, composition, lighting, etc.:
    Megafyr's Terrains
    My Terrain Showcase
    elredir's terrains
    Showcase 'le fladdermasken
    My Terraining Gallery
    johannesr's Terrain Showcase
    Megafyr's Terrains

    There are more galleries here: Complete List of Terrain Galleries

    Also you guys can look for references outside WC3. Search for games that you admire the scenery, you'll start to notice some reasons why you find them so awesome.

    @Naze gave some pointers. What you lack is the terrain's story.

    You need to further work on a point of focus and the overall atmosphere. Good luck all of you ;]

    Megafyr is such a legend that his showcase needs to be referenced twice ;)

    Anyways, Let's see what I can do..
