View Full Version : WIP: Piranesi Sketch
12-06-2004, 01:26 PM
Well, I'm finally moving on beyond tutorials and household objects. Attached is my first large project. I'm modelling an architectural sketch done by Piranesi. It's a study of an arched bridge with loggia. Due to the scale, I believe it is one of his "architectural fantasies" and not an actual structure, but I need to research that.
C4D 8.5 Core
Time: way to long. I've remodeled most elements several times using different methods.

Is everybody doing architure these days? :)
Your picture looks good. I think it has a Roman look. Will you keep this non-realistic style,
because I like it. I am curious how it will look when its finished.

This is coming along very slowly. I've got a lot to learn.
I haven't really thought about final look. Just working on modeling skills and learning the tools. I do like the diagramatic look right now though.
The cool thing about the reference sketch is that this is one huge bridge. The "ground" is actually all water. And the scale is huge! Eventually, I'll have some boats and people in for reference. Essentially one "step" at the base of the frontmost arch is about 6' tall.
A question about posting standards for WIPs. Should I use the sticky up top that doesn't seem to get used much. Is it better to post as a link or inline image. I see people do both. Or is there a file size cutoff where posting as a link is the "considerate" thing to do?

nice progress. at this scale you will need definitaly some references as boats or people.
as for posting WIPs you are doing fine but keep in mind that some people are still on
56k modem. for larger images you should use links.

I first thought you were finishing a C4D Render in Piranesi (software from www.informatix.co.uk (http://www.informatix.co.uk)). Might actually be a good idea give the theme you have now. Especially since an engraving effect on your render might suit the original pretty well. Of you might try to copy that with S&T. Keep up the good work.
