:applause: Very nice work - the loaders give a great sense of scale. Fantastic work.

The first version is so cool. Greatly modelled and textured, you also picked up a good lighting and depth. Great work!!! :thumbsup:

lovely feel

the chimney things with the red checkers really stand out though.....

id look at moving them into the background a bit more

11 November 2004, 02:08 PM
this is really nice work! I love everything about it-love the sense of scale. nicely done:thumbsup: i think you could use a slight DOF for the bkg though..but just knit picking here

11 November 2004, 02:09 PM
Nice!!! I love the mood of this scene! Great modeling, great details, great lights

11 November 2004, 03:18 PM
very fine detail. you really got what they call SPECIAL.
i wonder what if after render...

11 November 2004, 04:21 PM
Lovely details. Something is bothering me about the colors in both scenes I really cant tell what it is. But render itself is gorgeous.

11 November 2004, 06:00 PM
fantastic work, excellent design! :)

11 November 2004, 06:03 PM
I like this piece... but I too feel that the red checkers stand out way to much. The overall feel of the scene is cold. An overwhelming amount of machines with little to no life. I would consider adding figures. In a place as vast as this, it is tough to take in the whole scope without some workers not riding around in loaders. Yet I guess that if you were trying to show a diminishing workforce due to machinery, then bravo. Hit the nail on the head.

Outstanding concept and execution. Very well acomplished sense of magnificence with sense of scale. However I think that more variation in color will benefit this image, Iīm talking about some accesories, hoses, flanges, tubes... in different color than main structures. At first look, you canīt tell differences in material between parts. They look as the same material.

11 November 2004, 10:08 PM
Very nice! Second one has a great atmosphere :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 08:13 AM
Very nice details and design. Amazing work:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 01:27 PM
:applause: Nice work maan , liked the lighting very much n G8 modeling too...

P.O - * scene needs some texture variation ( may be of same colour but diffrent intenseity ) * change texture on the two tallest towers ( did'nt fit the mood of the scene) * N if you wanna go further - then try to improve the enviroment on the farest side ( may be you have to make the horizion more bright) .....Anyways maan i realy like the lighting da work :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 01:51 AM
disgustingly sick with mad details!!! and I mean that in the most positive sense... really and truly inspiring work. Where might I ask did you find the patience to do such a detailed piece ?
I'm totally impressed !
:eek: :thumbsup: :twisted:



11 November 2004, 12:08 PM
Thanks alot for the feedbacks!!

I really appreciate your comments and suggestions.

here's a link for the making of:

11 November 2004, 01:09 PM
Outstandig, but i would really like to see more colors in it, im sure it would change the mood, but its worth trying and testing what would come out. And also some close up renders would be nice, with so much detail lost with distance... :applause:

11 November 2004, 03:35 PM
Great sence of scale . Excellent ! :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 05:49 PM
I like the second one best, as the first one has a sky that is too "clean" or unpolluted, which with all the chimneys etc, is difficult.

Very good work

11 November 2004, 03:56 AM
Thats really awsome! that mustve been really hard to make!

i was working on a counter-strike map sort of like that.. nowhere near as complex

11 November 2004, 06:07 PM
i have to say this looks awsome i would love to play some type of video game with this type of style.
great job

ROCK ON:twisted: :buttrock:

12 December 2004, 01:32 PM
I think that the background buildings should be not so high positioned terms of perpective pov

12 December 2004, 10:12 AM
My wallpaper now!
:thumbsup: It's the kind of picture people have to take a little time to watch in deep!
Just one small critic on the bending of the right side tubes.
But don't you care. You gave us a nice piece of environment!
keep it up!

12 December 2004, 11:39 AM
The balance between the tubes and flat surfaces really make this fun to look at!

12 December 2004, 08:49 PM
Great modeling!How about more colours?

01 January 2005, 09:52 PM
Great work.

It would look even cooler with smoke coming out from some of the chimneys though

01 January 2005, 10:01 PM
Brilliant stuff!! I love the design and I think your model really does justice to the concept art. I also love the train pics..nice lighting there also..
Keep em coming!

01 January 2005, 11:08 PM
You should do a "night scene" with the same factory. It would be cool to see a day vs. night compairison. Otherwise, it great!
