Thx Jeremy, those were some great critiques... what I would expect if I was working over there. I feel like I am back in a production studio, taking notes on the days tweaks! I have been in my little box for two years... getting stuff out so fast there was no time to do those kinds of tweaks.... I'll see what I can do to the pieces I have posted... I have one more in my minds eye..
* One thing about setting up that angle shot... it teaches you that it's really hard to make an angled shot look like what you pictured in your mind's eye... the focal length and the set have to be just so...Even when I can move the lighthouse and pieces... it still was hard to setup, so there may be problems just with the basic composition.
** That is a seriously low poly game char.. I think I should try using a real person in there.

THX again... cool lighting challenge!

Hi, first post for me on cgtalk.. I'm blown away with some of the interpretations of this scene. So here is my simple attempt, just basic sunny lighting, hopefully its an interesting angle and composition. I've used blender, indigo and a few minor adjustments in photoshop.

Lighthouse at Lemming Leap

Hello all. Newbie to CGTalk. I'm taking an Intermediate Class in Vue 6 given by Peggy Walters who mentioned this thread on the class forum and thought we might be interested in participating. I found the model great fun to play with (thank you Juan Carlos Silva) and ended up with an image I've titled, "Lighthouse at Lemming Leap."

Hi there have really been working on my rendering skills and would love to submit a finished image here. So I think choosing a comp is the next step
I went camera crazy and got in a lot of POV shots as well as aerial and lots of angles.
Love the quality of the modeling.

So any suggestions welcome. I think UV's and texturing are coming up next.

Lighthouse Ideas

So here is what I was able to put into the lighthouse so far, I just added bricks and put in my colors. But I don't know if it works....Anyone have any idea's on what colors would go good with this lighthouse?

this is my rather cheesy contribution to the lighthouse challenge.
I really want to thank juan carlos silva for the model and jeremy birns for these challenges.
I only used spotlights for this. half the image is just a BG of a photo I took...
anyhow, first time for me o create a evening mood lighting.

c&c are welcome.

motoyuki, wow!! Overall look is great! Nice mood, I like sunsets alot
I have doubts only about the light beam and the reflection of the sun on the water..

So here's what I got for the Tower. I just added some moss onto it. Going to start working on the house next. Again, any advice on what colors to use on the trims would be awesome. I'm drawing a blank.
