Slightly quirky environment



Just wanting to do a fairly simple piece showing a mildly quirky Victorian/Georgian building at sundown. Lots of butresses, guttering, cast iron and wires! Not quite sure what this'll turn into.

An update! Decided to go for patchy lighting - Hudson River School style, if that doesn't sound too presumptuous.

Next stage is putting in some colour. Suggestions are very welcome, I'm quite bad with this bit...

Do you plan adding some people milling around? It would add some life.
I like the lighting, can't wait to see what you'll do with colors.

Probably going for something like this. The colours are a bit saturated and could do with a bit of variation but as a colour key they're fine for now.

Having people milling around is a great idea. I'll post an update in a few weeks.

I like the B&W variant the most. For color variant I'd separate planes a bit more tonally, and would reduce the lighting intensity, also maybe some vignetting.
The scene is busy, so you need to make the lighting simple to unite it.

Thanks for the interest guys. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari isn't quite what I'm after but it's a great reference to bring up after my black and white render.

This update shows the addition of some general decay to the environment, nature very gradually reclaiming it etc. I haven't started worrying about bump or reflection maps quite yet but I would like to have areas of glistening moss and wet stone, for the time being, please imagine such things!

I quite like the idea of having a natural garden on the ground, perhaps like the church garden in Final Fantasy VII. Other than that, it's all a bit vague. I'll have a couple of shady looking people in the dark street to suggest some inhabitants. Also, I have very little idea on what's happening in the left background.



Suggestions and wise thoughts are very welcome!

An update! Almost finished - just requires a large amount of work in Photoshop.

great update.. Do you plan to add lights? because It's fill like a one spot in a scene.

Alrighty I'm done now. It's not the most amazing image ever but it's a fairly decent environment so I'm pleased with it.

To see the image at a higher resolution (plus clay render, details etc) you can visit my blog. Link below. Thanks for watching ladies and gentlemen.
