  Other various websites for researching the Grand Canyon



Build Process
After I decided that I wanted to recreate the Grand Canyon, I started planning the design. This involved several hours of researching the landmark and looking at various images for inspiration.

I then started on the actual terrain, doing most of it in World Machine and using World Painter for several touch-ups.

Once the terrain was completed, I started working on the coloring. This involved using several masks from World Machine plus angle masks applied in World Painter.

( Image shown below is my node layout for getting some coloring masks in World Machine )


I tried to replicate the coloring of the actual Grand Canyon as much as possible to get a realistic effect.

Finally, I added a layer of trees on the plateau above the crevasse, and also several small red rocks on flat sections in the canyon.

( Image shown below is a top-down view of the entire map )


At this point, the terrain was completely finished, so all I had to do was render the finished product and create the various visuals above.
