    I tried my hand on scenic terrains for the first time ever. The result turned out alright I guess, but I'm sure it could be improved.

    Inspired by Norwegian painter Theodor Kittelsen.

    Is it the same shot just with and without game view settings?

    Oh really? I was almost certain some of that grass in the corner of the bottom one was the ufergrass, but well oh well.

    I actually haven't ever seen that one, thought I knew most paintings of Nøkken.

    Anyway, your version reminds me a lot of another version of that painting, or rather another painting of Nøkken. It's quite, as Oliver said, atmospheric, and certainly very well done for being a first scenic terrain. I would try to go for a more colorful approach, like the reference painting, but it is quite nice as is.

    May actually have been someone else who painted it, I'm not sure.
    Thanks! Yeah I could try some different or more saturated colors.
