View Full Version : Environment for website
02 February 2006, 02:05 AM
This will be the first full scale ready for employer viewing no screwing around environment on my website. It's still wip, I've been working on it for a few days off and on (which means before and after work really) So tear into it.

I see your going for the low poly, cartoon look. So far, so good.
I think your main problem is the conflicting colors. They really need to be fixed.
Any chance we can see a wireframe?

yeah the main problem is that the colours clash, use one of those virtual colour wheels maybe?
and also some things just dont match each other, like that blurry stone texture on some walls dont match the sharper ones etc.
the rest is honestly just my taste, i dont really like the style

I like the cartoon-ish look. I think the huge rocks look good, as well as the palms and the beach. However, I don't like the brick texture.. it's not cartoony enough, plus in real construction scenarios, engineers try to use local materials to build structures. I think you should either make the "brick" texture with more uneven bricks.. large, small, angled, etc. or go with gray cement. I would also add some foliage around the base of the palm trees to give it a smoother transition with the beach sand.
Also, I would give large rocks a slope. About a 30 degrees from the vertical should be good.. that way they won't fall on the player ;-) And if you do that then you may as well slope the brick/cement walls of the structure to make this environment a bit less claustrophobic, less "boxy" and more "angular" :-)
BTW, cement is a stonger material then brick/rock... so if it is some kind of a prison, it would be built out of cement. It's also a good stubstitude for all of those steel plates. Considering using steel only for piping. For example, you couls use a few pipes to support the walkway--about 2/3 of a foot in diameter should do it.
If I was an employer looking at your website, I would also like to see a concept sketch for the environment. It doesn't have to be yours (as long as you say it's not), but it's important to see how an environment modeler go from concept to finish.
Keep working on it though, I think it looks great.
