Costa Rican Shores by nukeation Costa Rican Shores by nukeation
A scene inspired by some beautiful times spent in Costa Rica along the Southern Pacific coast. I left a big piece of myself back there. :huggle: One of my favorite placest in the world. :earth: Warm weather, beautiful clouds, palm trees, crystal blue waters, white sandy beaches, (not to mention excellent company! :D), and exquisite driftwood!

Can't wait to go back there! :la: In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it!

Vue 8i

Costa Rican Shores by =nukeation is a beautiful render, and so real that you can almost feel the breeze and smell the tang of the sea in the air. ( Suggested by Yasny-chan and Featured by joannastar )

Innncreedible Mate! One thing you gotta watch out for is over sharpness in the post work process. Make sure to check your images on a variety of monitors.

One thing i'm curious on is how do you do your grass growth?

:aww: I loved it there! But, sadly, not as much as the Dominican :). I left a piece of myself there. I miss the beach and the palm trees and the wonderful weather. Aw I miss it! Thinking of it makes me sad :'(
