Hey,

I've been working on this for a bit now.
All LW with some PS post for glow and levels.
Sunsky from Denis used for the light.

Nice render. The bump on the sunny one is a bit rough. Maybe the plants need a bit back lighting and more variation. They all look the same.

Looks great. I'd partly agree about the plants, although strictly I can see they are not the same ... just similar in general form; maybe vary that a tad more.

Those white specs on the paving are also a little repetitive.

The bump is a little heavy perhaps, but a nice overall feel for sure.

Hey, Thanks for the comments.
Both your comments are things I am aware of, I just wasnt sure it was me staring at it too much or if someone else would spot it too though.
I have already made new bushes (DP_verdune to the rescue), and am working on the paving now.

These are both just sublime :P Yes the plants are a tad repetitive, the bump on the bright exposure reminds me of many MANy photos I've seen so it could go either way. Regardless of those considerations, both these images just floored me. Beautiful work indeed!

I thought these are both awesome! Nothing I would change aside from more randomness in the trees, BUT saying that... some things are stranger in reality, but we don't notice unless we concentrate. :)

I saw a sign down on a river whilst on holiday, and the dirt and grime on the sign looked exactly like a procedural pattern in LightWave... it was far too uniform to be real, but it was :) Weird!


Anyway... the renders are lovely, and give the exact feeling of walking down a street in Rome. Nicely done!

Thank you!

I will continue to make some improvements to this, but I will soon have to let it go and move on to something new. As you know, when you start fixing stuff in a scene it often just becomes more complex and you know it would be easier to start again from scratch with something new.

Very cool and realistic image! And I recall I've been walking there some days ago... ;)

Superb! But a couple of things stick out. First is that the building on the left doesn't seem to be on a "foundation". Also the planters and plants need to be less perfect. (maybe a car hit one at one time and moved it over or something.) And lastly, the street has a repeating pattern to it. I really like the lighting on both images. Very well done overall. :thumbsup:

Very convincing, the second one especially. Didn't notice the repetition but I probably will now that it has been mentioned.

Hey,

Thanks for the comments.

I have updated the bushes and the white dots on the ground.
Regarding the left wall not having a foundation.. I would have to make the wall look like its sticking down into the ground, not the ground sticking in under the wall. I did a bevel there to make it gather more occlusion, but I can see what you mean.

Nice! A lot better. One tiny thing.... I would make the bumper (etc) on the mini chrome because back than everything was chrome on those cars I think.

It is chrome.. Just reflecting too blurry.. made it a bit dirty chrome :(
Oh.. and it aint a mini, its a fiat 500, the original :)

Loved the originals... but these extra touches really sell it even more! Get these over to the 3D World and 3D Artist galleries! :)

Very nice update! I think you could ground the foundation with some dirt and weeds that invaribly gather and grow in those areas.:thumbsup:

Hey,

Thank you all :)
There is a lot more that could be done to this image. Regarding dirt and weeds, there is none in the reference pictures (yes, its based on several locations in rome). Very clean even.

Haha oops I knew it was a mini. Must be a lack of coffee moment or beer overload that caused this mix up.

Y'know, it's just great. The updates look slightly better for some reason but the first images looked great anyway.

If I can pick something off it will be this Fiat500 car there that looks like it not belongs there. It is probably because car models are my fetish so do not bother :-)

Great renders, I can smell lovely summer air, and how sweet the wine would be:thumbsup:

there´s room for some more atmospheric mood changes I think.
