Hey Mike, nice work on this bridge, I like the feeling of “upside down”
Well, this is my final image . I made the very small Patricia character in the bottom left corner much brighter as well as added a slight haze to the foreground city.
Thanks guys for all the comments and sorry for the lack of participation in others threads , I should have worked on this throughout the challenge time frame so I could have more time to post in some of the other great threads.
this is great!!! Good Luck.
I agree… It really IS great.
While following up on your thread, I had enjoyed a lot of what I saw… but the star would definately go for your “hanging building” concept.
It sort of locked me from being able to create my own :sad: the most original ones ere in the end under the influence of this great catch (Though I am STILL not too sure about the overhanging ones…).
All in all, everything seems to have developed nicely…
BEST of luck with your entries journey from here on!
Somehow I thought you’ve had not the time and motivation to finish the challenge…and now I see your final image here:scream: …
Congratulations for your impressive scene! :bounce:
I really like your concept for the hanging buildings and the overall impression is…huge, very huge! A stunning look in the inside of the cylinder:thumbsup: !
Great work here, Mike, good luck for your entry!
Here is my video for my challenge entry. It is a little small, if I can I will do a larger version.
Okay , I give up . My video was supposed to be way smaller, the version that was uploaded somehow got blown up in size and is extremely poor looking. I guess I will try to upload it again.
I deleted the link from the above post because I was hoping to upload another one and I didn’t really want anyone to see it. If you really want to see it, you can go to the first page of my thread and choose the “view challenge page” and then click the Video post.
Seeing the video clip I can really appreciate the sense of depth you’ve achieved - no small feat. Brilliantly done.
The scale feels just about perfect, especially with the city units around the curve of the chamber.
Well, here is the final image again. I was trying to get as big an image as possible while staying below the 150kb limit.
I don’t know how some people manage to get such large images below 150kb.
Anyways, I did a larger animation and will be uploading that next.
Thanks to all who stopped by my thread and commented, it is appreciated.
Well, here is a larger version of the video then the previous one I uploaded
. When originally hearing of this Cg Talk Eon challenge I knew I wanted to somehow show the inside shape of the stone. The massive tubular environment is what I was after in doing the model and the hanging city structures is something else I found interesting in reading the book so I also concentrated on that as well.
This is fairly close to what I was after when I started the contest. Good luck to all the challengers.
P.S. I also used Veloute which is a plugin for Carrara , it wasn’t an option in the Software area so I thought I would mention it here.
Big Congrats Mike!
A really stunning scene … and made in such short time, very impressive!
You really achieved a sense of scale here, as usual, good luck
Congrats on making it to the end, Mike. I like your final still, but the animation definitely puts it to shame. Really great sense of scale with the animation. Good luck with the judges!
congratulations Mike! :bounce::applause: i totally agree with Jesus (Jedi - Juice) very good sense of scale! even the colours rock too! nice earthy tones!
good luck mate!
congrats, cool scene
Congratulations for the 4th place. :applause:
Congrats Mike, well done
Wow, I am a little shocked I actually won something. To say the least I am a very happy camper right now. :eek: . My internet connection was terrible this morning when I went to look to see who the winners were , each page download took ages but I was very happy when they did load.
Congrats to all the winners and contestants , and thanks to Cgtalk for these challenges.
