Whow really nice detail and render man! can u show a wire? I really like the golden material, looks very real!

03-31-2004, 07:25 PM
the wires :)

03-31-2004, 08:56 PM
you are crazy aren`t u ?
the level of detail...
eh i cant say anything ...I just lost my voice

03-31-2004, 09:36 PM

03-31-2004, 11:35 PM
cool stuff

i would move it to center of the table.. hehe
don't want it to fall off the table... looks expensive

04-01-2004, 12:48 AM
cool as, looks really good, the only thing bothering me is the black area behind the hands, needs a bit of detail or something, just looks like an empty space, other than that you have done an amazing job

04-01-2004, 06:06 AM
right, must add more detail inside, looks a bit empty :)

04-01-2004, 08:18 AM
Thats pretty nutty.

It looks pretty real, except I guess it would be nice to see rust or dents on it, but still... WOW~

What you should do is stick this in an animation where everything is insanly modelled like this. Heh

04-01-2004, 08:24 AM
:beer: :bowdown:
amazing work..
is the spotiness in somne area coming from hdri or from the brdf shader ?

nowaday a nice piece of work !!!!

04-01-2004, 11:28 AM
frontpage material :thumbsup:
could you post one laying on the table? |) (it looks a bit strange standing)

04-01-2004, 11:39 AM
very nice work, love that golden shader

04-01-2004, 12:31 PM
WOW!! How many time modeling it??

04-01-2004, 01:29 PM
this shiny look comes from the hdri and the bloom shader, looks a bit old and dreamy i think
i've placed some distant lights at the bright areas of the hdri.

i'll post a laying version tomorrow, it takes a bit to render ... :)

04-01-2004, 01:30 PM
modeling time was 2 days

04-01-2004, 02:54 PM
wonderful render! love the detail! I can't really say anything else!?

perfect? :p

04-02-2004, 10:19 PM
Beautiful! :applause:

04-05-2004, 01:01 AM
Truly excelling, professional work, definitely frontpage and up center.
There's ONE thing I can think of criticising thou, I think the glass looks a little too transparent, or not specular enough. ..Maybe it's just me being an envious little twerp thou..
Could I ask you how you've done the lighting, especially the "gleam" on the chain handle? I'd really appreciate it.

04-06-2004, 08:42 PM
this "gleam" is a shader named bloom in lw.

to the lights, no radiosity used.

there are one area light, four distant and one point light, i've placed the them at the bright areas of the HDRI with different colour settings.

04-06-2004, 09:49 PM
:eek: nice work man. First i thought, it was real.

"gut gemacht" :applause:

04-20-2004, 05:10 PM
here's the back view...

moved to page one :)

04-20-2004, 05:38 PM
Looks Good! Can't wait to see the laydown version. :thumbsup:

04-20-2004, 06:26 PM
WOW! :drool:
Really great stuff man! I really like the gold material.

Are you going to animate the mechanics ?

05-03-2004, 09:01 PM
Awesome work... an animated version would be brilliant....

05-04-2004, 03:26 AM
Amazing texturing and lighting. Most people forget the good old 3 point lighting here. Always powerful when done right.

Dave Black
05-04-2004, 03:59 AM
Simply perfect.

Plugged on the front page!



05-04-2004, 04:23 AM
O My God...

That is beautiful.

05-04-2004, 04:32 AM
Heh heh, front page only a month after it's origional posting... Glad to see this thread revived for such things

05-04-2004, 04:35 AM
niiice! I like that a lot.

Something bugs me a bit though... Maybe it's the intense orange vibes I get from the lower shiney parts on the front view. I almost expect it to be a different shade of orange. But, that's mostly a preference thing. Wowee, you've done such a great job!

05-04-2004, 04:53 AM
Beautiful ! :applause:

05-04-2004, 04:57 AM
WooooooW!!!!! This is amazing work.....really. It looks real with the awesome textures and lighting. So many details! Great work.

Keep it up.



05-04-2004, 04:58 AM
Is this modelled after a real pocket watch? And if so, is it commercially available or is it an antique/heirloom of some sort? I really like pocket watches and mine broke and I haven't found one I like since then, this looks awesome though!

As far as the image, excellent!

05-04-2004, 05:05 AM
Fantastic work, although something bothers me about the larger engravings on the sides of the watch inside. Is that displacement, or modelled in? (Hard to tell from the wires). I think perhaps it's due to the roughish edges beveling into the engraving.

Spectacular detail overall! :beer:

05-04-2004, 05:11 AM
Hey WhiteRabbit Obj:

Here is the result of a google search.

cliky clicky (

Nice image & watches I have to say.

Check this watch out (

05-04-2004, 05:29 AM
nothing but red Xs here I'm afraid....

and if you want some fancy clocks... ;) I actually have an older model Atmos clock at home:)

Ah HAH! You found it, thank you my good man. I have in fact done google searches before, sad part is, pocket watches tend to be mega-expensive and I don't have the cash to spend on some of these pricey things. It seems that the watch he modelled, and you found for me, is 1200 Pounds, or what, 1700 Dollars I believe. Maybe in a few years if I work my way up to VFX Supervisor or something! :thumbsup:

[edit] Btw, pocket watches tend to be real chick magnets... of all things. For anyone interested! Something this bright and shiny ought to bring 'em flocking!

05-04-2004, 06:10 AM
The detail is just amazing. I like.. I like a lot.

05-04-2004, 06:30 AM
Just beautiful!!

I really love it!


Magne Hage
05-04-2004, 06:48 AM
Simply amazing.
Keep it up :thumbsup:

05-04-2004, 06:55 AM
I didnt even notice that there was a glass there first (alot of watches doesnt have a glass), must've been the modelling making my eyes go all googely over the gold ;)

05-04-2004, 07:24 AM
Nice work indeed!

05-04-2004, 07:24 AM
You just made the desktop of my computer man. This is absolutely fantastic. I want one now.:thumbsup:

05-04-2004, 08:16 AM
Absolutely awesome level of detail, fantastic lighting and shaders... I am in awe and bow to your greatness :bowdown:

Now... about an animating version.. ;)

05-04-2004, 08:21 AM
Great job on the watch. The details are really sweet.

05-04-2004, 08:21 AM
hehe, give me a render farm ;)

the front shot rendered 14h! without radiosity :cry:

05-04-2004, 08:40 AM
:applause: Wow super sweet!

Can you tell a bit more about your rendering techinique & surfacing? I know with gold a lot comes down the reflection image & method. Did you use any HDRI lighting & are those real caustics from the glass of the watch on the letter or faked?

BTW are you using G2 or Lightwaves standard renderer?

05-04-2004, 08:59 AM
awesome details!

it needs patience to create such model!

your shaders & lighting is amazing. It looks better than real!

05-04-2004, 09:01 AM
Incredible modeling work :buttrock:
The rendering is also a 1A :applause:
I really like it


05-04-2004, 09:29 AM
Very G-R-E-A-T ,what Lights u used ? you use HDRI ?:bowdown: :bowdown:

05-04-2004, 09:59 AM
i'll post a screenshot in a view hours :)

05-04-2004, 10:55 AM
That was fantastic.:eek: I thought that I was a patient person...but I probably go nust if I would try to make something like that.

looking forward for more pic :bounce:

05-04-2004, 11:05 AM
awesome evrything :thumbsup:
realy great stuff.

05-04-2004, 11:09 AM
lol u are crazy, the level of detail, the material, the lightning .... awesome n1 ! :thumbsup:

05-04-2004, 11:24 AM
Sorry if this has been asked, but I don't have time read all the posts right now.

Is that an actual watch, or is that your design? I love that watch. I'd buy one.

You did a extraordinary job by the way.
UltraFantastic. :applause:

05-04-2004, 11:58 AM
Your modeling acuracy and "patience" for all that detail is really outstanding, for that alone :bowdown:

Amazing model and render, 2 days to model it? :surprised Oh boy, u r fast :buttrock:

Send this to Proton, im certain that this image is a must on the Lightwave Gallery page :thumbsup:

05-04-2004, 12:15 PM
A very nice amount of detail for sure! The materials are quite nice. Good use of Lightwave's glow plugin, it really adds to the atmosphere of the scene.

05-04-2004, 12:17 PM

You are a god!

05-04-2004, 12:18 PM

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

05-04-2004, 12:39 PM

05-04-2004, 01:28 PM
You have a good eye for detail (not to mention time). All I have to say it looks better than real. Nice work!:bowdown:

05-04-2004, 01:31 PM
damn, u hit the front page... nice!
I should finish something now too :rolleyes:


05-04-2004, 02:52 PM
WOW! great work! going so deep in detail must be bit like a meditation...:wise:

you said you used photoshop also on this? did you just make adjustments on the finla image or did you render masks/passes you used in photoshop?


05-04-2004, 03:03 PM
this is nothing less than gorgeous

05-04-2004, 04:12 PM
ok, here's the wanted light setup:

radiosity: 0.0% :rolleyes:

Hollis J Wood
05-04-2004, 04:23 PM
that is just too beautiful for words

05-04-2004, 04:44 PM
Holy Crap...AMAZING! Had to be german! ..You guys make the best spray paint the world has to offer aswell (belton)...

05-04-2004, 05:06 PM
Absolutely beautiful work, amazing. Would love to see more of your work if possible. Three bowing thingies for you

just a quick note, In LW, position of distant lights makes no difference, only direction. So you don't need to position them all over your scene like that, unless you are just doing it for targeting purposes.

Beautiful Render by the way :D

Ouch! Thought about FPrime?

btw... nice work!!! :)

05-04-2004, 05:27 PM
Hey man this is Excellent !!!

Cool Clock ! absolutely coll materials and render, also a great design !


05-04-2004, 05:31 PM
Very impressive!

Just wondering how you got the etching so fine... must have used a monsterous bumpmap or displacement map.

05-04-2004, 05:38 PM
thats right, bumps on uv's.

i've made all the fine engravings with illustrator and my wacom.

05-04-2004, 05:49 PM
well lid

05-04-2004, 06:20 PM
Great render and VERY detailed model! Nice to see some great Lightwave work make it to the front page!

Congrats. :applause:

05-04-2004, 06:56 PM
Amazing :buttrock: There's a jaw dropper right there!

05-04-2004, 07:01 PM

05-04-2004, 07:12 PM
WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It's beautiful! I want it! want it want it ..... want! Want! WANT! :drool:

05-04-2004, 08:27 PM
What can I say that others haven't said yet ? Just perfect ! So realistic that I tried to steal it :p

What kind of references did you use ? Cause I'm modelling a Music box and I was looking for this kind of documentation.

Keep going !

05-04-2004, 11:12 PM
WOW !!! Detail is breath taking :eek: :surprised
Truly amazing !!!!

Could you post the full resolution so i can see the very detail of the clock ?


05-04-2004, 11:29 PM
A master piece that is all I can say:bowdown:

05-04-2004, 11:39 PM
Simply stunning!

couple of sugs if i may...

You could try putting the watch on a little cradle or dispay support, atm it looks like it would just topple over.

The paper looks a little flat for the period look. paper back then tended to be pretty irregular, tho i gues whoever could afford to buy that watch could afford the best in parchment stock!

The pic is beautiful as it is tho.


05-04-2004, 11:46 PM
beautiful :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

05-05-2004, 02:09 AM
all i can say is holy crap.

damn nice

05-05-2004, 01:07 PM
Looks allmost to photorealistic to be CG super nice work man Keep it UP :D

05-05-2004, 02:23 PM
you are a maniac!!!!! lovely!!!!!:drool:

05-05-2004, 02:58 PM
great job.really awesome.:applause: :applause: :thumbsup:

05-05-2004, 05:14 PM
Nice work :beer:

05-05-2004, 05:29 PM
Did you use layers for your textures? Gradient?

05-05-2004, 06:14 PM
I can't believe it is a CG picture, it really like a photograph.

05-05-2004, 06:14 PM
only normal texture settings, no gradients. only the text-parts were two layers, one for bump and one for the color (black text)

05-05-2004, 07:33 PM

Come on, rust !? - Don't you know that gold & platinum don't rust!

No, this piece is quite alright and realistically detailed like truly expensive, precious timepieces are.

So are you saying it's procedural? Or did you use image mapping on anything other than the text?
Just out of curiosity, are you using one image of the room for the HDRI?
I come from a mechanical background and I've seen lots of great mechanical images. This one rocks! Great job.

05-05-2004, 08:42 PM
i've made the textures in illustrator with my tablet, therefore image maps :)

the BG is a HDRI.

05-05-2004, 10:29 PM
i am dumbfounded, this is absoulutly awesome. i like clocks, but holy crap!

05-05-2004, 10:33 PM
ur gold is amazing
fine peace of ART

05-06-2004, 03:50 AM
Hey, there .... This is more than amazing, man!!!

Wow, very nice work... It's one of the most beautiful works ive ever seen, really!

05-18-2004, 10:52 AM
great 3d picture from a great work and great 3d tools by a little genius with some great talents !:applause:

05-31-2004, 11:51 AM
How in the world did you get Lightwave to do that. I hate lightwave. What I wouldn't give to undo and delete my purchase of it. Ahh well....I see this and it makes me wonder what my problem is. This is simply beautiful art here.

01-14-2005, 06:57 PM
Nice, right amount of detail, nice lighting and interesting look... great

02-07-2005, 11:45 AM

10-14-2005, 07:58 PM
