Sorry for the outburst this lighting issue just sucked all the fun out of the last few hours. Is MentalRay always this corporative?
Here’s the update. I added some graffiti to the dumpster, a patch of crab grass growing out of a crack in the pavement, and some leafs sprinkled around the ground.
mr.wheels and unclebob thanks for the kind words and suggestions. I’ll continue to add more imperfections to everything. I’ll be sure to make with the dumpster and the dents via my virtual sledge hammer … venting MentalRay frustrations. Its not in the image but I’m in the middle of modeling in some loose bricks in the building. I’ll be sure to render off a view of it next time.
Edit: Texamosix, the other shot was never meant to be that dark … I turned off the GI and final gather to speed the render up and it got really dark. Lesson learned. 0_o
here’s an upclose view of the leafs … although the ground texture is way to blurry for a final image this close as is. I’ll have to up the road (ok I’m tired I meant to say sidewalk) textures resolution.
