    Noun 1. badlands - deeply eroded barren land
    land, soil, ground - material in the top layer of the surface of the earth in which plants can grow (especially with reference to its quality or use); "the land had never been plowed"; "good agricultural soil"

    A bastion is a fortification work projecting outward from the main inclosure of a fortification, situated in both corners of a straight wall (termed curtain), with the shape of a sharp point, facilitating active defence against assaulting troops. It allows the defenders of the fort to cover adjacent bastions and curtains with defensive fire.
    The bastion was designed to offer a full range on which to attack oncoming troops. Previous fortifications were of little use within a certain range. The bastion solved this problem. By using cannons to cover the curtain side of the wall, the forward cannons could concentrate on oncoming targets.

    guarding the west parts of Adiria, this bastion of mages up on the hills of this badland, inhabits a powerful and wise clan, feared and respected by the commoners.

    Sometimes the only solution is practice. Your stuff since I've joined has taken massive steps in getting better and continues to do so. I enjoy the style of your entries. I think all this needs is a little more detail. I like it so far.

    The problem underlying any image is the same... the basics. People keep on saying ' I cant draw *****' Can you draw a cube with lighting on it? can you put a sphere on a cube, light it and make it look like its huge in perspective....? thats the knowledge you need foe a city... not much more. Once you can do the small steps, environments are not that hard. But if you dont have the basics... environments are insane.

    Its like trying to build something in lego when the blocks are badly made... its gonna be a nightmare. Look to the blocks and what you build will improve exponentially. Trust me... do some basic exercises...its the fastest way to learn the complex.

    P.S. Chuck... dude, yer not far off. Thats not bad at all. Keep at it!!!

    Getting the basics down is just what I am doing, That's why I'm in a perspective class right now. I have also been watching and working from the Gnomon DVD's, and for those that haven't seen it, check out Sparth's site. In his gallery he has step by step shots of a couple enviros he did. His style is kick ass, and if I can get close to that level of doing enviros I'll be a happy camper.
