I am trying to recreate a riverbank [Note: not the fort/buildings]from an historic photograph:

Upper Fort Garry and riverbank

I'm having trouble finding a tutorial as the terms I'm using in my searches predominately bring up other kinds of projection mapping of terrain; it's all aerial views and DEM models from cloud GIS services. Here, I know I will need to create the geometry myself, but my efforts have not gone well:

Can anyone offer any advice on a workflow that might yield better results?

  • $\begingroup$ Probably you will find this projection useful blender.stackexchange.com/a/226920/2214 ... There is nothing to say about modeling ... manual work - sculpt terrain, add mesh primitives as buildings ... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @vklidu I probably shouldn't have cut out the buildings because that probably makes it seem like I wanted to model them, too (I do! And have, already from diagrams). However, as this was a fur-trading fort in Canada, its relation to the river in the foreground is really important. It's the character of the riverbank I am trying to reproduce. I will try sculpting as that will probably produce better, organic-looking, results. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Feb 9, 2022 at 21:46
