    Combine the influence of surrealist painting, a National Geographic documentary I saw the other day, and a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon, and you get some pretty neat stuff.

    Enjoy!

    The idea of this terrain is great, but unfortunatelly I see two things that really disturb me.
    1. The really huge letters right in the foreground of your actual terrain are more than annoying to look at it terraining wise.
    2. I would have liked to seen the foreground a little less foggy, because right now the whole image is rather pale. It would look better and more natural in my opinion when the foreground would be a bit clearer visible and less foggy, also the glows on the water seem a bit strange.

    I would really appreciate you considering these two points and maybe trying to improve this terrain, because the lovely idea is worth it.

    Very interesting, you should take Morbid's advice! Those letters are really ruining the terrain.

    Agreed with both of them the letters are ruining it but if you look passed them the terrain looks very nice. +rep

    Sorry it took me so long to get around to changing this. I've been really busy for the last few days. Anyway, I've edited this so that there is no longer that giant block of text. I originally tried just removing the text, but there were several problems I had with the lower part of the picture, so I just decided to remove that part altogether. So there you have it. I've updated the main post with my new version.
