Using the textures provided in the tutorial from http://www.blenderguru.com/videos/how-to-make-cliffs/ I came up with this result. I got some practice with the sculpt tool for the first time it worked as i wanted. I guess I never knew exactly how to us it. This method could be useful in creating landscapes, matte paintings, and other compositing. I really would like to get better at texturing water but anyway. This image was render in cycles 200 samples 7 minutes 45 seconds to render. The project took an hour and half. I did some work in the compositor, the sky is a plane on a second render layer with a little color correction .
