Modeling: Platform Model



This will be the closest of the floating platforms in the scene.

A lighting test. Here is a look down one of the chemical dispersion tubes.

Thumbs up Great work thus far!!!

I have to say I love the design of the platforms and the look of the building you modeled. You seem to be doing really well. Keep up the good work. I like the colouring you had in your final sketch and the large pillars or tubes surrounding the main model in the centre of the scene. I like the idea and teh colour of the lights that you have throughout your models. I'll refer to it as "Strip Lighting", are you going to use these style of lights to give most of the illumination to the scene? I'm not sure what you had in mind, but I think it'd look cool, even amazing if because it is underground that the background is in shadow and the main objects are lighted by the ambience of all the "strip lights", lanterns and various platforms which I think look cool.

I'm looking forward to seeing your final image realised.

Hi Aaron. I really like your modeling and think the lighting for the tube looks great. The subtle variation in shades of colour really draw your eye in. I am looking forward to seeing the final pic. Good luck and once again, great work. Claireabella

Thanks for the encouragement guys!

phoenixomen- That was my intention actually, to use the so-called "strip lighting" throughout the scene in order to make it seem much more like a massive city/civilization. I'm also planning to include a few subtle mysterious lights in the background just to give a hint of what's back there, somewhat like this cave I made for my texture and lighting class last quarter:


Thanks again for the kind words, I wish you guys the same good fortune and creative ingenuity that I'd wish for my own project.

Modeling: City and background



So here is (hopefully) the final model for the city part (with all those buildings laboriously added). And also the cave behind it, most of it won't be seen since it will be covered up by the large pillars (not currently visible). And (this should be obvious) it's rendered with nothing but the default lighting at the moment. Man, I need to cut down on parenthetical usage.

Texturing: Bank Platform



Here's the bank. Will only do a few more variations on the platforms since they will only be seen from far away and there could be hundreds.

Modeling: Notha Platform



You may have noticed that they all appear to have a similar object latched on the far left corner. That is the motor that enables the platforms to float.

Modeling: Yet another platform



As should be obvious, I have yet to texture these puppies.
