nice work. i love the texture. lovely.

09 September 2006, 09:30 AM
I hope, it will not look too low poly. That's the hard decision, you have, if someone asks you to make a environment with 5000 all rests on i will post the whole building...

09 September 2006, 12:11 PM
ok, i don't want to let you wait, here is the complete building, but not final, i have lot ideas, but not much time me your imaginations and ideas to improve it!

hope you like it!

nice progress - looks really great. Nice Textures and Layout so far. Fits perfectly into the Diablo Sheme.

Personaly i would suggest more Contrast on the Colors and Lighting. A Focus-object would add more depth (athmospheric) to the scene.

hi folks,
here comes an update for you,
Searchingsoul: Thanks for you comments, i still work on the lighting and hope to get it right...not much time left...

09 September 2006, 10:24 PM
I think I like the green picture (before your last update) a little bit better. It feels more closed off and it's got more character. Making everything brown or dark detracts a bit from all the work you've put into it, and it makes it look more generic.. Just my opinion. Looks great though!

09 September 2006, 10:53 PM
thanks blacker, you are right, the cold moon light i made in the first version is much better and build a better contrast to the torches, hope you like the update, i am still working....

-> isometric

another render, this time non-iso...

Beautiful :thumbsup:

Quick comments:

-Bloody altar texture seems to be blurry and less detailed than the rest of the scene. Pixel density issue?

-Vine texture seems way too green and unnatural. In this type of environment it might look better slightly wilted and discolored vs. the lush green jungle look it has now.

-Ground texture is beautiful but its noticably tiling. This could be fixed with some love on the texture or with some vertex blending between 2 textures.

-I like it. :D

I will work on the texture on the altar and maybe i work also on the plants, but here, i want to have the contrast between the green and the brown walls...maybe i will add some yellow, so dead and life are allways near by.... :-)
The tiling on the ground, i will work on a bit..i hope i get it....only some hours left..........:scream:

best regards,

09 September 2006, 09:30 PM
come on dudes, there is not much time left....i will add a sky for better presentation, what left?

09 September 2006, 09:36 PM
This last shot compared to the others are the best in my opinion (Really good in fact). Dont know what you should do more though, Sorry :(

Maybe make a nice presentation for it? ;)

09 September 2006, 11:09 PM
I recommend sending it soon. It's taking FOREVER to submit work. Their servers are overloaded.

09 September 2006, 01:04 AM
ok, i have to sleep now, i am not satisfied with the presentation, but no more time and yes, i have problems too, on uploading....damn....:sad:

09 September 2006, 01:40 AM
F'n awesome! Good luck (on uploading AND winning)!

09 September 2006, 09:29 AM
I could submit it now....hope they have a heart with those who fought with the server.....hope it's not to late.....

best regards,
