This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!
Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.
Looking for some high-quality plants? Here they are! Xfrog has a nice pack featuring 20 models of species from all over Australia and Oceania called Oceania 1. What you get for $169 (sale price) is a huge set of 180 highly detailed, fully textured 3D models.
Each plant includes 9 variations in age, size and shape for a total of 180 highly detailed, fully textured 3D models. This set of ages gives enough variety for instancing the models across a virtual terrain: essential for recreating the ecosystems of Australia and Oceania. This library is the first of three unique Oceania libraries and compliments XfrogPlants Oceania 2 and XfrogPlants Oceania 3.
The DVDs also include 1600 x 1600 Billboards and 1600 x 1600 Perspective Renders, each with alpha, for single polygon opacity mapping, or direct compositing.
Here are some renders created with the help of Oceania:
