Thumbs up Awesome

Wow great work, man I have so much freakin work to do!!!

@Guybrush: I will put a bigger image online as soon as possible.

I can only line up with the rest of you complimenters. Looking forward to seeing your next post. Perhaps the sky could need a bit of work and I'm wondering what would happen if you gave the image something that would drag it out of the postcard-atmosphere that it seems to have now. Not that it matters that much. Prachtig man!

Fantastic! Iím a great Fan of old machines, especially of big steam locomotives!

You did a great texture job! Maybe the treat of the wheels could be not so dirty. Ballast instead of sand under the Rails would also be nice ... but what I am talking ... great image
  08 August 2004
Sorry, was busy making sketches for the next image.

@RAF: I fully agree with you that Ballast would look a way lot better, but i had to stop and render it because i'm on a tight schedule. There are cases that sand coveres the ballast... so it's not totally wrong but some more stones would definately make it more realistic.

@Seger: Hmmm. The more and more i'm thinking about it... maybe i will return to this image one day and add the things that are missing and also make it more dynamic. I got an idea.

Thank you for you good comments.

Great subject
I love these old machines

The rendering looks pretty nice to me.
But, maybe you could use a little more variation in the weathering.
looks a little monmochromatic now.
yeah, i know the things were black on black
but maybe a little rust.
I don't know, but I think if you introduced a little more color it might make for a more interesting image.

any brass - like the bell up front?
that would be nice

also there are some shiny/oily parts like on the valve gear
maybe you could push that a little for some more variety.

and for me - this image is about the machine.
I think the sky is perhaps a little too strong
kind of draws attention away.
even though it is strongly directional with those cloud lines drawing you in.
still ... I would probably look for something less dramatic.
But, this definitly a subjective thing.

are you going to make some more images with this model?
It looks like a goldmine to me.
I'd render it to death

in any case
Very nice work
and i hope to see more

Nice image! I love the model and lighting, but I have a problem with the sand texture in the foreground right. The brightness/hue of it looks wrong in the image and is the one of the only weak spots in my opinion. You could place something off camera right (tree/sign of something) that cast a shadow on that area and it would help 'suspend the disbelief'. Really nice work though!
  08 August 2004
I think the texture is still too bright

Hi again,

@mmiller: I was delighted to read your comment. This picture is finished in a way that i can put it in my portfolio for now... but, It's not finished the way i wanted. I just need some extra time

I have done some sketches and tests when i was not working on another image. Alot of things you have pointed out in your reply will be changed, improved and i will add new elements. (Compostion!, colors, a few textures, shading, background, steam?)

@Z1K0B4: Thank you , As you have read above alot of things will be changed. and i will look at the problem.

BTW. Would the WIP section be a nice place to continue? although the modelling and texturing is "completed"?

(Very good comments and critique, i thank you all for this.)

Gotta go now. Cya.

good work man...keep it up

That's a very nice image, Reinier! I agree with Mark's comments on the monochromatic looks, but on the other hand it does create a nice style this way. Textures may need some darkening down, too. The only thing I really don't like is the background image, just in front of the locomotive. What is going on there? It looks as if you crudely painted out something there?

Other than that, great modelling/lighting/texturing!
