Lighting Challenge #16: The Lighthouse

The challenge here is to light this lighthouse, including the light from the lighthouse's own beam, and whatever surroundings nature might be throwing at it.

This challenge is over. The deadline was Monday October 27, 2008. However, the scene is still available for download here:

http://www.3drender.com/challenges/

MIRROR
3DS
3DS2009
BLEND
FBX
HOUDINI
LWO
MA
OBJ
XSI

The models include the lighthouse and some simple surroundings. This scene was modeled by Juan Carlos Silva. Please credit him for his work if you use images of this scene on the web or in your portfolio or showreel.

The gallery is now on-line, so you can browse some of the amazing entries posted in this thread:


Keep up the good work everyone!

Thumbs up First Feedback and More File Formats....

Leotril - Yeah! First post! It's amazing how much a little grass and sky does to the scene!

jasvant - Great start! Nice colors in the sky!

We have more file formats on the download page now:

  • Thanks to Samo (Alvaro, who also has done so much modeling for other challenges) for the Blender version.
  • Thanks to dboydesign we now have a 3DS and a Max 2009 files on the download page!
  • Thanks to mesutcapkin we now have a Cinema 4D file on the download page!
If someone wants to help support any other popular package, please send me the file to host, or PM me to arrange for how to upload it.

Thanks!

-jeremy

w00t! Another outdoor challenge! Thanks, Juan and Jeremy.

This'll keep me busy between now and a few weeks, when classes begin.
Must...restrain myself...until after work.

Awesome! I love lighthouses! Thanks Jeremy and Juan! Can't wait to see what people come up with for this!

For anyone familiar with the area, I am trying a Bar Harbor themed environment (Lots of Fog). trying to mix in a touch of those black&white cards with a touch or 2 of color.. Here's a first crack at it...



C&C's always appreciated!
