March to the sea by Gejda March to the sea by Gejda
Full view, please.
One of the most massive manips I've ever done. Took a loooong time, but I'm really happy with how it looks.
Inspired by David Weber's & John Ringo's "Prince Roger" series - one of the book is titled "March to the sea", hence the title of the manip. The plot centres around a Prince and a battalion of Marines stranded on a planet called Marduk - and pretty much the entire planet is covered in jungle, temperatures go over 40°C (that's 104F for those use Imperial system), and the life forms are - to say lightly - hostile.  And so the Prince and his soldiers have to cross over half the planet to get to a spaceport and go home. Not mind-boggling, but a pretty good series if you like military s-f. Here's a goodreads link to the first part if you're interested: www.goodreads.com/book/show/25…

EDIT: fixed some minor annoyances.

Surprise surprise, I made screenshots of this on several stages, so you can see the process here:

So wonderful in realism. I like your sub-tropical vegetation with flowers, plants and animals. The sea is so far and it's to difficult to find the sea. Magistral composition.
