Hi all

This is my last work.
It is a house from an ancient Spanish village, just a texturing and compositing exercise. Hope you like!

As allways C&C are wellcome.

06 June 2003, 02:09 PM

good job !!!


06 June 2003, 02:14 PM
Very realistic...lots of little details :thumbsup:

Is this rendered with GI or raytracing ?

06 June 2003, 02:20 PM
Thaks for the comments.

I am currentlly rendering with Brazil rs. I have tried all of them and, by now, Br is the choice for me.


06 June 2003, 02:37 PM
agagagaaaa... :drool: amazingly realistic! woaw! well done!:thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 02:37 PM

nice picture

but the proportions look kinda strange imo, or isnt that ground on the bottom?

06 June 2003, 03:16 PM
No. The ground connot be seen.

06 June 2003, 03:30 PM
Excelent texturing work, really good composition and details, the scene looks great overall, congratulations you´re an incredible 3d artist.

06 June 2003, 03:33 PM
As alwayz really sweet 3d_B.

06 June 2003, 03:38 PM
impressive, very.....

06 June 2003, 03:58 PM
Really nice. I love the textures and lighting. The composition is kool too. Doesn't look strange to me. It's very a interesting angle. What have you been up to? Email me sometime and tell me what's going on with all your projects, work, Vader, etc.

Mr. Nice Guy
06 June 2003, 04:04 PM
This is looking real good.
Love the angle of the camera and the deatails. It gives me the feeling that I want back to Spain for holiday.

Can we see a wireframe?

06 June 2003, 04:04 PM
Great Picture,
Good choice of using brazil for your scene, I like your house texture ;)

Good Work :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 04:09 PM
Excelent texturing work ! :buttrock: ..but i dont see any oryginal ideas.

Ese JJ

Esta coxonut, de pm, im-prezionante...

Se ve q tus visitas al foro del hispano y a los canales del irc ha conseguio q se te pegue algo de siquier, por la eleccion del tema digo...

Una cosa q no acabo de entender es el nombre de la calle, se supone q es una calle española y olé? pq mas bien suena francés...



06 June 2003, 04:16 PM
i always respect your very amazing work, 3dblasphemy, but think your image over again:

there are some proportional errors IMO...

when i see the balcony and the window behind, also the plants i try to imagine a person in relation to it. if i take this person to the ground floor in front of the store (or whatever it is with those fruit boxes??) - then this person must hit the marquee with his/her head ;)

suggestion: lower the boxes with the fruits a bit OR show us the basement in relation :)

though... at least 4 stars :applause:

06 June 2003, 04:17 PM
Marvellous picture! :thumbsup: Just gorgeous ;)

06 June 2003, 04:18 PM
You cannot see the ground.

06 June 2003, 04:20 PM
Oh, please JJ, stop making the rest of the 3D artists getting depressed. My God, your pic is outstanding!!! Well, I suposse that the only thing I can do is to congratulate you... once again!! Only one crit, the plants on the roof are a bit aliased (this is just to crit something)

Eres una mala bestia tronco, nos vas a dejar a todos sin curro!!

06 June 2003, 04:23 PM
Eh GAto!!! You won´t be without work!!!

TAs pasao!! :beer: ;)

well, this it what i'm trying to say ;)

the stacks of boxes only give the impression that the ground is not far below of what you cannot see...


06 June 2003, 04:29 PM
the boxes are over a table.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 04:35 PM
Excellent. Very realistic! :beer:

06 June 2003, 04:38 PM
It's a great pic, and for the comments about the boxes, if you look at the bottom , you can see the breaks of the diffrent tables that the boxes are sitting on. :)

To Make it easer for every one to see, you may want to pull back Just a Little, so they can see the Legs of the tables & that would solve the "problems"

Way better than I can do right now, Hope to get better though :)

06 June 2003, 04:38 PM
last thing I saw from you was a realistic car that you said was made in a couple of days , and this time I se a house that... how long did it take you to make it? .... nothing more to say ... just brilliant work man ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 04:38 PM
Great Work!! I agree with the suggestions about the confusion caused due to the floor not being framed in the image, but very nice none-the-less :applause: :bounce:

06 June 2003, 04:48 PM
right, pgp :buttrock:

dont change anything, JJ, just keep it as it is

btw: always nice to discuss in a constructing way :wip:

06 June 2003, 04:55 PM
Eh Zeromancer I want all your crtis!!!!!!:beer:

I agree with you that the sense is strange. The lens curve is extreme, some people has said the same so don´t worry about crit!!!! :wip:

It is the first time I use such a cam. I think that the next work will be better :thumbsup:

Someone has asked about how much time have I spent on this work.. 3 days.
ost of the time texturing.

06 June 2003, 05:06 PM
:thumbsup: great work, no crits

06 June 2003, 05:11 PM
great work, only thing i could think of, is where the green cover is voer the market, it could give off a very slgihtly green shawdows, to represent the light passing through the cover, but other than that its great

06 June 2003, 05:31 PM
That's a high quality render. What was the resolution of the map for that structure? Lovely!

06 June 2003, 05:31 PM
great stuff. Reminds me of Brian Prince's work.

but.... is it me or does the bottom floor entrance look like it's 2 feet high?...

06 June 2003, 05:54 PM
Very good texture work!! I like the camera too... and the details, as the plants...

06 June 2003, 05:56 PM

06 June 2003, 05:57 PM
Only a question..where is Mattersville in Spain? hehehe:airguitar

06 June 2003, 07:14 PM
great texture and models. realistic lighting, too.

06 June 2003, 07:28 PM
i know, that's more an asking for creatures-makers, but i've always wondered how the wireframe details of such a simple but so realistic picture looks. it just doesn't seem as if a simple box for a wall (for example) is good enough if you can do a good material. Can you show us please the wireframe?

Anyway - great job, indeed :applause:

06 June 2003, 07:48 PM
Thats AMAZING!! how did you do all the vegitation on the rooftop? is that all modelled individually? ya looks great!:thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 08:18 PM

most of the time texturing. [/B]

Did it really take you so long? :rolleyes: :cool:

Great pic, blas, awful hair, by the way :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 08:24 PM
WOW Nice stuff :buttrock:

06 June 2003, 08:48 PM
Very good job Blas, I see that your architecture style seems a lot to J. Siquier style. :shame: hehehe just kidding.

See you on IRC, hasta la vista tio.

PS: have u turned your hair green again? :p

06 June 2003, 09:00 PM
and yea Mattersville sounds more like a french name , hehe :p

06 June 2003, 09:05 PM
Amazing work!!!

Anychance to hear from you on how you did the textures?
You're probably too busy for a tutorial... But just a few words... and maybe show us a few low res samples.

Keep on rocking!:buttrock:

06 June 2003, 09:55 PM
one word.... realistic 8) (although dreamy)

06 June 2003, 10:35 PM
Hi all and thanks for the comments... and stop kidding about my hair or I will :wip:

Well, about the textures: I have used two bitmaps of 3k*3k for the main box of ther house and some little ones for the details as the windows, the doors, the pipes, ....

Whe I am gonna textrure some like this I see all my bitmap database looking for maps that fit on my imege... I take about 100 different maps. The hard work is how to mixture the maps. In this scene I spent about 6 hours making the main box. Is important too to know hot to make a good bump. I don´t use any trick. Only take my wacom and start painting, clearing, adding breaks, ..... And that´s all.

Thanks again!

06 June 2003, 11:18 PM
Very very nice job.

Only crit I got are the windows. They look like they have tinting material on them. If they were perhaps slightly less reflective and possibly more transparent, they may look like the glass look. Unless of course tinted is what you want, then I shut up.

Maybe a higher spec on them as well, since the sun is hitting that side of the building full on. The 2nd level windows BTW, the others look fine/consistant.

06 June 2003, 11:35 PM
great! perfect piece!

06 June 2003, 11:38 PM
mattersville is a NOFX song.

This looks pretty nice. Good work blasphemy.

06 June 2003, 11:46 PM
Your work is very good.Friend, continue to work hard.We toast!

06 June 2003, 12:08 AM
Good shot entangle :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 03:05 AM
great works!
i love it:love: :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 04:13 AM
The light feels is good!

06 June 2003, 04:16 AM
Photo realistic.. amazing texturing :buttrock: :buttrock: :bowdown:

06 June 2003, 04:20 AM
great work!
how long did you rend this cool scene?
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

special monkey door.
besides the door problem, its a good image:)

06 June 2003, 07:54 AM
:cool: weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

good work JJ, and very good textures...


06 June 2003, 07:58 AM
I like it, nice detail, very realistic and cool diffused lighting.
Also the marketplace at the bottom and the banana boxes give a nice flair to the place.



06 June 2003, 08:24 AM
fantastic image dude, I can't imagine 3 days for this.. lot to learn I guess. There is a few small dark areas over some of the pic i don't understand, if you look right under the circular window or the window next to it?? Also on the railing on the first floor seems to get darker in some areas for no apparent reason??.. maybe some sort of lighting/rendering glitch?

very hard to pick but im fairly new on this forum and this is kind of fun for me when I'm bored at work!

06 June 2003, 09:20 AM
Spain are beautiful
My applause to you, really GREAT ArtWork
:applause: :applause: :applause:

06 June 2003, 10:00 AM
Great, as usual, very well done, I've put my impressions in the other place ;)
5 stars :thumbsup:

06 June 2003, 10:56 AM
Very nice pic :thumbsup:

Only critic is that the shadow of the top balcony is parallel to the latticework. A little change in camera placement would help a lot!

Sorry if I missed it, but could you post a wire?

06 June 2003, 12:05 PM
Nice work, but how did you create the plants on the roof???

ivo D
06 June 2003, 12:07 PM
could you put up a WHIRE ?

i know the mesh is kindah simple.. if i see it right..
but im qurious about how low on mesh size it really is:surprised :wavey:

greatjob by the way..
but a little adjustment to the window would do it..
with a grayscale image of furniture or some vage shapes behind it or soemthing

06 June 2003, 12:27 PM
OK, I will post a wire afterward. I am at work right now.

Thanks you all for the comments!:beer:

06 June 2003, 12:46 PM
The circular and square openings at the top of the building have an odd break in the shadow where a line can be spotted. It looks like this is a compositing problem.

06 June 2003, 12:51 PM
These lines you are talking about are in the maps

06 June 2003, 01:16 PM
Beautiful image!!!

Can I ask what camera settings you used to get that sort of perspective - I've tried and failed miserably so far.

06 June 2003, 01:26 PM
I am using Brazil spherical camera, adjusting the fov and focal len.

06 June 2003, 01:35 PM
Beautiful image!!!

06 June 2003, 01:41 PM
que ajco me das cabroncete!! :buttrock: but.... very very good! :drool:

06 June 2003, 02:54 PM
The texture is cool.

06 June 2003, 05:56 PM
The textures are awesome!!!
Very well done as usual.

Only thing I see is the corner of the wall seems to perfectly round and maybe a little to big. It has some variation to it but maybe some more uneveness to it.

Even that is a minor comment, I am not to familiar with Spanish Architecture so that how it may look correct.

Other than that I think it is perfect.

06 June 2003, 07:36 PM
posted twice, sorry
plz delete it

06 June 2003, 07:36 PM
the colour of the 2 holes on the top seems divided into 2 parts?

And GREAT WORK , realistic and impressive ~ :cool:

06 June 2003, 10:23 PM

07 July 2003, 07:39 PM
i don't want to nag, but what's going on with the wireframe? I can't wait. I have a proof such pics don't need so many polygons... do they? anyway, still a gr8t job:applause:

07 July 2003, 07:40 PM
need a proof, don't have.... yet! :rolleyes:

08 August 2003, 06:53 AM
