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!
