Hello friends,:thumbsup:

After almost two weeks doing the new 3D image I can put here for you see. I try to do like a Tower Bridge from London but I can't.....because I have just a little reference photos.
Because of this I change a lot of things, sorry if there are a number different things but one day I will go there...London and I will take great photos :) ahhh, I'm not architect ok. :thumbsup:
I hope you like that images and feel free to be critic ;-)

that is a really sweet piece you've got there. it's too clean to be real. looks like a set piece from Shrek, or something like that.

the links don't work unless you copy/paste them. otherwise i get 403 forbidden.

Nice nice work how did you make the textures ?

otacon
06-28-2004, 04:34 PM
Thats awesome modeling. I think for it to look realistic, the textures have to be dirtier. Other than that it looks real good.

LucianoNeves
06-28-2004, 04:42 PM
I made the texture with a some photo that I have and I mix all.

Frontpage, será, será, tá ficando óbvio já!!

Eu particularmente gostei da cena diurna, apesar as outras também estarem legais.

Parabéns amigo, como sempre me surpreendendo!!

Abraços animados!!

Hi Mr. Marius
I'm work with the visualization also...and I using the 3D Studio Max....

Thanks a lot :thumbsup:

this is amazing work!!!

a little dirt would be nice, although don't overdo it...the tower bridge is pretty dam clean anyway (except the graffiti on the blue iron - not a lot)...

if you really want to make it look like London then I would modify the background map...the land around the bridge is flat not a sloping hill, and the high rise buildings are not so residential but more differing modern office styles...

I have linked 3 pics (2 not so good quality)...but I hope they will be of some assistance to you! If I ever take more I can e-mail them to you if you wish (just pm your e-mail addy or something)...anyways keep up the amazing work!!!

Otherwise, parabéns!

Very, very nice! Especially the night version. Great lighting there. :)

dangerkid
07-01-2004, 02:34 PM
Wow - This is terrific work... especially for not having much reference. Only crits being: I would probably actually dirty it up a little bit more and I *think* the London sky in the night version should be a little lighter... it is so dark it almost looks like the bridge is out in the country somewhere.

But that's maybe a little picky. :) Congrats on such a great piece!

i'd be interested in seeing some more info on how you textured it.

this is a great example of great 'traditional' lighting with a scanline renderer.

fantastic!

Matthewma
07-01-2004, 05:23 PM
I am curious as how you textured this thing. I see a lot of great resources on how to texture characaters, but nothing on environments.

Is it tiling overlayed with light/dirt maps? or several large maps over the uvs?

If you could explain your mapping process and perhaps even a small little sample of the various ones you used(bump, spec, displace?) it would be most helpful and much appreciated.

Fantastic, awesome image! i like them both.

then, i would like to post some ref. images here for you. i found that the big holes are not high enough compared with the real Tower's. see the images i showed you. and the width scale is not enough also.

Thanks, Luc.

It does look great, but still I wouldn't mind knowing methodolgy of texturing. Do you take that small brick pattern repeat it in photoshop(or whatever) then start adding some uniqueness to it, or do you actually combine those photo examples in the 3d package then overlay different images on them to get the dirt and stains?

Just curious as how to approach texturing something of this scale.

Congratulations mate......................your work is an inspiration to others. Im interested in your lighting set up. Night lighting is an art in itself, and something I am having great difficulty with. Any chance of some screen shots of your set and settings. Am eager to see more of your work.

07-02-2004, 11:32 PM
well the modeling is really good. it seems to be detailed. the problem is with the textures on the metal part of the bridge which seems to be clashing with the stones. its just because the metal seems to be really new and rest of the stuff really old.
really cool otherwise!!:applause: :bounce:

This is a great model! I work right along-side Tower Bridge (in the Mayor's City Hall), so I'm really used to looking at the amazing structure. I can see it out my window now, wow!

Your 3D piece really does the bridge justice! Great work!

it is great work but I would like to know what is the point? the technical work is very very good, but I'm sick to death of "realistic" images. "realistic" is not neccsaryly good...afterall I could just snap a pic of the bridge and it wil be absolutely real. A suggestion that I have is instead to put some creative lighting , change the mood a little. Just my 2 cents....still great stuff though

Hi, Luciano

Really excellent work. Congrats!
For more references, this (great) site usually shots The London Tower as test target for digital cameras. If you dig around you´ll find more very hi-res pictures of the place. Look for "Photographic Tests" and "Samples" in several camera reviews.

Cheers
