Ok, holy poop! Good lord that's nice. Great job. I mean, really. Damn. You gotta get that link working so everyone will take the time to check this out. I'll keep looking at it to see if I can find some usefull crits...


11-19-2002, 05:45 PM
Awesome Man.

The lighting and composition are wonderful. Anything that I would have to critique about it would be personal choices so rock on man. Good Job.

:bounce: :buttrock:

thanks for the compliments guys

11-19-2002, 08:19 PM
I just checked out your site. You have got talent my man.
Your skills at modeling/texturing and lighting are awesome.

11-19-2002, 08:37 PM
thanks bro

11-19-2002, 10:06 PM
Thats really really great stuff.:eek:

Where do you work?.

Man I want to hear some texturing tips and tricks from you.
How do manage to texture every bit and part of the model.

Cool work.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

11-20-2002, 03:47 AM
oh man! this pic is awesome. I couldn't offer you any crits cuz I can't find any:d. How did you make the foliage and trees?

11-20-2002, 05:50 AM
Hey, chrom, It is great, I love your work. Keep post more

11-20-2002, 06:54 AM
looks great! I dig the Folliage!! only crits would be on the flying things - they seems to blend in, maybe trials or heat or somthing next time? And the road on the right top seems to lead the eye into the yellow haze, it would work better if it led either to somthing else interesting, or to the top, ending the "trail".

Wonderfully done,


11-20-2002, 07:11 AM
And this bastard won a copy of Max 5, Z-Brush 1.5 and more !!!

Great work chrom ! :thumbsup:

thanks all

aazimkhan: I work in a small game company in Bulgaria like a freelance 3d and texture artist.About the textures I am writing a tutorial for 3dvf how i made it.It will be available soon.

Tex: about the trees here is the tutorial for them:
tree tutorial (

You need Shag Hair plugin.

I_farley13_I: for the "Flyng Things":), yes they don't look cool but i don't have the time for more, for exact trails.Yes, I know i could make them in photoshop but the terms of the contest are "no post work".Maybe next time:)

Again big thanks to all


11-20-2002, 06:27 PM
quite impressive, I really would like to see a shot that is MUCH higher resolution so that I can zoom in on the nice little details.

11-20-2002, 09:22 PM
thanks stephen

here is a bigger variant, not for print but good


11-20-2002, 11:47 PM

11-20-2002, 11:48 PM

11-21-2002, 12:11 AM

11-21-2002, 12:07 PM
wow again very nice compliments, thanks guys

lildragon : big thanks for the award man:) and for the nice words

the render time is 20minutes for calculate the GI and then 2 minutes for rendering.The scene is around 1.5 million polys.

zzzrByte : You make me feel that much more sure of myself :)

thanks:) :) :)



11-21-2002, 12:10 PM

11-21-2002, 03:42 PM

gr8 work!!!

11-21-2002, 03:59 PM
I love it. some good lightings. but always you want to get a fill lights on the shadow areas too.:bounce:

11-21-2002, 05:35 PM
cableguy: its a too big scene for animation, I mean heavy
but maybe sometime i try it:)

thanks people for the nice comments:)


11-21-2002, 05:37 PM
your environement is very beautiful :applause:

And i think this is normal that you have won the 3dvf challenge :thumbsup:

Very good work!

11-21-2002, 07:58 PM
superb work, very realistic


can you post some more detailed screens? for big res of some parts of that shot?

11-21-2002, 08:43 PM
I went to your web page and I think my jaw dropped looking at your gallery.
Uh- got any tips. I'm a lightwave kinda girl. what resources do you use.
Any books or links or classes etc. I can get to someday get there?
especially for texturing and lighting.

:surprised <-this is me checking out your stuff

11-21-2002, 10:10 PM
I love those future-city style images. When I grow up, I will make one myself!:beer:

11-21-2002, 10:29 PM

I'm going to start an inspirational folder with that image. This is the kind of stuff it's "in me" to do, but I have yet to really let it loose like this.

I just finished buring my roommate to a crisp (in CGI of course :D ) and I need a "next project"... so that's perfect.

11-22-2002, 01:41 AM
too big for animation?

how about rendering a 1600x1200 size still image? and render it at different angles too. :beer:

11-22-2002, 01:47 AM
:eek: :eek: Awesome, It's!!:applause:

11-22-2002, 06:54 AM
That is beautiful man

you bring a tear to my eye

11-22-2002, 07:31 AM
22 minutes to render!!!!!! That is INSANE. I swear...I use Lightwave 7.5 and some of my renders take like 10 hours with a very low GI setting. AND my scenes are like 1/100th as complicated as yours.

11-22-2002, 12:28 PM
hey thanks people:) :)

garbagemonkey: no classes etc.., I am self-taught.Fot the lighting and texturing I highly recommend you two great books-"Digital lighting and rendering" and "Digital texturing and painting".Play and experiment with textures in photoshop, with layers blend options,masks etc..Until you gather experience don't use GI, play with lights.In the net is full of good tutorials, many of them is free
and of course the CGtalk forums are great place to learn by the others;)

derelict: I mean is too hard to manage inside the scene, not to render.Is not possible to render at different angles, cause then scene is made only for this view.All around the scene is planes with different colors to recieve the GI.Only is possible to change the zoom of the camera.

GoodCleanVegan: lightwave is woderfull app with great realistic render but i thing is a bit slow.only vray can manage rendering so much polygons in so little time:) eh but this is my opinion:)

thanks again for the good support guys:) :) :)

btw excuse my bad english people


08-29-2003, 12:23 PM
Very cool environment,
I'd like to see it rendered at a massive resolution!

09-14-2003, 08:32 PM
Wow, amazing stuff, and wonderfully done.

question: how many hours were spent on this ? or days. weeks ? :)

09-14-2003, 09:22 PM
very nice !!!
i love you work!

09-14-2003, 10:16 PM
Awsome m8! realy. to bad its such a low resolution.

09-15-2003, 01:34 AM
Fantastic environment! Great lighting...nice foilage man.:thumbsup:

09-15-2003, 04:27 AM
This looks like a scene of of a sci-fi dvd. Great job.

I like your site too, especially the fantasy type stuff. Some of it looked like it came from Myst.

09-15-2003, 09:10 AM

09-15-2003, 10:05 AM
