I made this scene awhile back and it reminds me of part of the landscape in my fantasy work in progress. Of course it doesn't have to inspire fantasy scenarios to others as there is nothing in the image that says "oh look I'm in a fantasy world". Then again this image is more flexible and allows for more creativity.
I used Bryce to create this image. The program is fairly easy to use and not to expensive. Once I've created a scene it usually only takes a few minutes for the program to process the rendering (the final image).
I'm working on novels to publish someday hopefully soon. I have a fantasy trilogy planned, a few related science fiction novels, and a mainstream novel.
I have a BS in psychology, and am employed in Institutional Research (higher education), which means I work with loads of data.
