FINAL ENTRY

Hi all. Its high time to say my last words to 2nd Modeling challenge.

Today it was really exhausting. The last day in the morning I found in the thread that we are finishing today. For some reason I thought that the dateline is 16th. It was my big fault and I wasnt really happy. But now I can say I have completed most of that I wanted.

The tower, as you can see, isnt fully completed. There is no bottom part, the easist I can say.

STATISTICS

RENDERER - MAXWELL 1.2.2a
MESHES - 2.999
TRIS - 1.156.830
VERTICES - 624.305


TIME SPEND (not exactly but estimated)

5 hours - looking for references, preparation, correction of photos - levels, sharpening, estimating measures from photos
110 hours - modeling
6 hours - texturing, painting textures
6 hours - final touches, rendering








I wasnt able to deliver to this midnight more renders. Tommorow (exactly today) I wont be at home, I will spend all the day at the cottage because of some important issues, but later will post wires and more renders. Good night.

Comments:

Here's a little more work done. I lost a day thanks to several thousand files getting accidentally deleted, so I didn't want to use the comp for anything until I finished "resurrecting" them.
Just thought I'd share more technical details in case anyone's interested.

Modeled in Lightwave 9.0 using a lot of LWCAD.
Currently 90,805 polygons
HDRI lightng
Rendertimes:
4m12s for distant shot
6m14s for close-up

Comments:
Still needed a lot of tweak, this was a try for the texturing.
Wanted also to efine the model.
Here is the last post. Moving to another work. I'm satisfied how much I learned from this mini challenge.
