Modeling: Yummm!



Here are the long-awaited pastries! The lighting and all looks terrible, but that's not the purpose of this image. Anyhow that bunt cake in the corner is looking mighty fine!

Lighting: Background Lighting



I believe this is it for the background lighting. Ignore the bright white spot on the right pillar, since that won't actually be there. Same goes for the excess of holes in the floor. With everthing in place, it will look quite different. Still, I'm wishing for a little more of the blue glow that once was there. Perhaps I'll work on that part when it comes to compositing. What do you think? Do tell.

Rendering: Man, that's a lot of stuff!



Well, it's coming along isn't it? Still trying to find a good balance with the floaty blue stuff. In this one you almost can't see it at all. Guess it's time to render out layers and take it into Photoshop to mess with it.

It's been a while since I came in, but looks like progress is good! Very nice atmosphere, the glow looks just right. I would suggest being a bit careful with your background and the foreground elements.

The pastries look damn cool, it would be a waste if you couldn't get more detail in! BG looks a little too plain as well, especially on the left. The scene looks nice on thee whole, but I think it can look even more kickass with minor details being put in!

Cheers

Cool Rendering: Latest Render



Fixed some things up, worked on glows and the blue stuff a bit. I tried rendering passes in Maya but alas, it doesn't work quite as I hoped. Most of the render layers overlap other parts and the light fog in the scene covers everything. In short, it's all gotta be rendered together to get the same look. That's alright though. While still working on details, I'm also wondering what kind of adjustments need to be made in Photoshop. Please, please give advice, crits, ideas, whatever. Thanks!

Thanks keetmun! I debated about how close that platform should be. True, I'd like everyone to see the pastries, but I don't want the platform to take away from the actual city behind it. Before, others were telling me that it wasn't too clear which one was the focal point for the scene. I see what you mean about being a tad plain on the left side. Any suggestions on what to add? More lanterns, more platforms, more of something else? I'll have to think on that one.

looks good

Looks good on the whole. I think the image lacks a feel of depth though. Where the central purple glow is, I'm wondering whether the background would be better if it was darker so that it reinforces the object in front and create a sense of depth in the image.

Wow this bring back memory about Peter Pan. Will there be people flying? I think the pixie dust is too monotonous. It cover the entire bg too evenly, killing the depth/ contrast of the image. May be more gas on the ground and more open space upward? Just a thought of course.

Well, I haven't updated lately because I was in Mexico on a mission trip, from which I have recently returned. And, sad to say, my school quarter begins again tomorrow. So I won't be able to do much more for this project. But I'll try to get done what I can, while I can. Funny, the due date is one day before my 21st birthday. So I can submit it and then have a party!
