I wish you like It :)

comments are welcome

ah ok.. you're an intimist, aren't you ?!

nice, nice, nice.
cannot see so far any problems (maybe just the dof for the left top tree is a little bit too much... but probably is needed to get that nice composition.. without.. the little house will be a little bit naked.. I think).



04 April 2004, 03:20 PM
like the texture
did u use vrays disp.

04 April 2004, 04:10 PM
That is an absolutely beautiful work of art. Thank you for sharing.

04 April 2004, 04:49 PM
hehe very cute !!:rolleyes:

tu devrais mettre un p'tit wazo je pense que ca renforcerais le p'tit coté intimiste qu'il s'en degage !

en tt cas

i lke ur picture :love:

francesca :
Yes I am :D your are right the deep of field is a bit strong, but this is picture is completely different without dof.

K-design :
No, I use the old Bump :), The displace is very nice but useless here I think.

polycowboy :
Thanks :)

maxman :
je me suis posé la question de l'oiseau, mais ca change compeletement mon image, le but était de faire une maison a zoizo, et non un oiseau dans un decors , tu me suis ? :)
parcontre, si je fais un oiseau un des ses 4, je pense reprendre le meme decors mais avec un cadre different.

04 April 2004, 09:07 PM
oooh that looks very real

04 April 2004, 09:12 PM
Amazing! You might want to make the nails a tad bigger and add more specular / reflection to the leafs. :)

04 April 2004, 09:25 PM
Really good image!
Intresting example to do something colse to photorealism, without matching it.
Good job!

Sorry for my ENG! :D

04 April 2004, 10:23 AM
very very super bo, !!!!!!! tu devrais te mettre a la 3d toi je suis sur que ca te plairais !!!

04 April 2004, 11:57 AM
very nice work, how many times for rendering?

04 April 2004, 06:59 PM
Thats cool looking! Its like were spying on the house waiting for a bird to pop its head out. Nice colors.:thumbsup:

04 April 2004, 07:02 PM
very nice mood and very sweet feelings !!
Si je peux me permettre d'etre un peu pointilleux( en fait tres pointilleux pour le coup he he ), la texture de l'epaisseur du trou est a retravaille, rien de mechant mais ca assez visible etant donne que l'oeuil est dirige vers cet zone...
les feuilles sont tres reussi...tres bO rendu !!

04 April 2004, 07:55 PM
Its like were spying on the house waiting for a bird to pop its head out.
:) otacon, but looking at your avatar will be hard for you to catch a bird...:)


04 April 2004, 08:00 AM
if you want to see a wire :

rendering time is 41 minutes.

oui c 'est vrai que j ai un peu fait ca rapidos :)


:) tu as raisons

you are right ! :) something dont match.

maybe specular on leafs will give some realism.


04 April 2004, 08:03 AM
very very nice work man! i really love your images. well done :bounce: :applause:

maybe add some birds poo! :D:cool:

04 April 2004, 12:15 PM
nice mood. Really missing a little cute birdie though.

04 April 2004, 02:02 PM
looks really nice!

I'm much worse at texturing, but I did notice something weird about the texture on the front of the house.

there doesn't seem to be any relationship between the model and the texture.

example: under the stick that sticks out of the house I would expect some green stuff from the rain dripping down, but instead it's really clean.

Awesome image though, finally a good use of Dof :)


04 April 2004, 02:37 PM
superbe, scene toute simple avec tout ce qu'il faut.

04 April 2004, 02:42 PM
I like the pic but missing a bird ? no ???

04 April 2004, 03:39 PM
Really nice, kinda like a still life. I love the leaves the way they are. My only crit is that, although I don't mind the DOF in the foreground and background (it emphasizes the subject better), I don't think there should be so much on the birdhouse itself. Why blur out the detail when it looks so good?

04 April 2004, 03:52 PM
first of all: AMAZING birdhouse. no crits at all.
The only thing i dont like is the way the leaves are blured in a way you can't even tell it's a birdhouse. I don't think you should not use depth of field, i would only use less. great work alltogheter

04 April 2004, 07:14 PM
really awesome!

my only suggestion would be to subtly change the colors of the leaves in the back to be bluer/less saturated to push them back, and those in the front to be yellower (tho just a tiny bit) to bring them forward.

it should create enough visual depth to allow you to tone down the dof a bit.

04 April 2004, 08:19 PM

I'd be nice a little transluciency on the leaves, if you have, sorry, i can't see it.
Anyway, really nice end real picture, and the theme of it also makes me happy :love:

04 April 2004, 08:58 PM
excellent job, I love it.

The only crit I have is that the wood could be warped and twisted a little .

keep it up.

04 April 2004, 12:19 PM
I love it. very nice work:applause:

04 April 2004, 04:52 PM
nice work...i really like it

04 April 2004, 08:47 AM

Nice job dude!
And what about having a little (even dead) bird?
You can also add few littles details on the mesh.

Keep on posting!


05 May 2004, 06:05 PM
after all your comments, this is the updated birdhouse, I realy love the DOF so i keep it strong :)

the bird is verry simple. I don't have more time for it :rolleyes:

I wish you like it



05 May 2004, 06:23 PM
l'oiseau est en 3d?? si c'est le cas chapeau:buttrock:

05 May 2004, 06:24 PM
Yes! the bird really adds much to the piece...beautiful!

05 May 2004, 08:12 PM
realy realy nice!!! I prefer this one :bowdown:

05 May 2004, 07:59 AM
Much better with some life form.
Keep the white background?
Nice job indeed!

05 May 2004, 08:03 AM
Très très joli !
Les couleurs sont très bien choisies, calmes et reposantes.
L'oiseau est bluffant ! le velouté des plumes est palpable.
Du grand travail !

05 May 2004, 08:42 AM
simple but stunning !
love it !

05 May 2004, 09:05 AM
great work Mr Clems!!!:thumbsup:

05 May 2004, 09:21 AM
Wow Mr. CLems.......Awesome work! The bird looks really good, and everything just fits. Nice texturing and lighting.

I really think the bird topped it off. :bounce:

Keep it up!


05 May 2004, 09:28 AM
Well, i like the image very much, but as someone said, i think the DOF is too strong. I mean, first of all, i would not blur the house at all, i find it very unrealistic. Appart form that, the front leaves are too much and unrealisticaly blurred, showing as stains instead of making the composition richer IMHO. As it is a matter of taste, and you said you like the DOF as it is, just keep it that way, but sincerely i think it makes the comp disperse, broken. Maybe i would put the camera just a little closer to avoid too much leaves in the front.

05 May 2004, 09:31 AM
Very nice texturing! I really like it and it looks realistic :)


05 May 2004, 12:30 PM
Wooooo !!
Rarely seen a so beautifull CG image !
Just simple, poetic. Nothing unusefull. Maybe the Dof is too high, in my opinion.
Mr Clems is the best....

05 May 2004, 05:54 PM
Much better now!
Great textures. Can we take a look to a low res diffuse map?

05 May 2004, 03:37 PM

this is a small animation with the bird,
it is a test render, 4 days for rendering :surprised

you will see some mistake in this video but it is not the finale animation

Birdhouse_test1.avi (

05 May 2004, 06:38 AM
vraiment joli mouvement de l'oiseau tres naturel ....bluffant:bounce:

05 May 2004, 07:15 AM
Arf !! Mr Clems is now animator !! ;)
The Bird moves like a real one, difficult to do this kind of subtil animation, hard to make it credible. :surprised
Great work Mr Clems, still the best ! :thumbsup:

Touf, Serial Animator...

05 May 2004, 03:47 PM
clap clap clap clap
great lights captain :beer:

05 May 2004, 06:34 PM

05 May 2004, 10:33 AM
a quand un nouveau travail? j'ai hate de voir car enchanyé de cette maison d'oiseau....:p

05 May 2004, 12:53 PM
yeeees, bah voila, une ptite anim et ca le fait grave,
Pour regler tes problemes d antialiasing (sur le cabanon) met toi en adaptative subdivision en min.rate :1 max rate:4, impossible que ca foire sur l antialiasing pour du 2K, suivant ton format tu peux descendre un peu (pour du pal ) 1-3

Pour ma part je mettrai un peu de camshake et je ferai une mise au point animé.
en tous cas chapeau :beer:

05 May 2004, 02:34 PM
hehe ! c bien tout ca !j'avais pas ton image depuis mon dernier post, mais je vois que tu a rajouté l'oiseau; et je prefere avec...
continue comme ça :beer:

05 May 2004, 06:31 PM
Great DOF and image.

05 May 2004, 11:48 PM
The wood is very realistic! I'm impressed!!!!:applause:

06 June 2004, 02:40 PM
Nice job MrClems!

And where can we see your new pictures?
See YA!

06 June 2004, 03:17 AM
