Message in the snow


I used to write messages like this in the snow hoping to express my feelings of discomfort in the cold and dark of winter. Now, thanks to technology, I can complain about the cold weather from the comfort of my home, and still contemplate it’s visual qualities. In case there is confusion about the message, it is probably because the first word is in swedish and you dont speak it, it simply means “(The) Winter“.

Made in Blender and rendered using Cycles. The snowy ground, and thus most of the image, is made with a displacement map (se below). The techniques used in making this image I picked up from Blenderguru, many thanks to them for sharing!
