View Full Version : My Shoes

02-15-2004, 08:13 PM
I wanted some fun this weekend, so I modeled my favorite shoes. Well, the weekend is over, I need to get some sleep so I can work tomorrow, so I decided that I'll leave this as it is now and consider it finished.

Everything done in Lightwave, except textures that I painted in Photoshop. And the background is just a photo of my hallway in my apartment I took earlier tonight and composited the shoes against.


Let me know what you think.

Very photorealistic! Great job. I especially like the leather look you have achieved. My only critique is on the laces. Usually on the ends they have a hard surface to keep the shoelace material from fraying and coming apart. Plus it makes them easier to put through the holes but yours are thin enough that probably wouldn't be a problem. I'm just being picky.;)

Hey, Thanks for all your comments. Mucho appreciated! :)

Have the laces untied when noones in them? Never heard of that technique.. :D I personally am so lazy I just use a shoe horn so I don't have to untie my shoes.

I actually probably should have made the laces with railextrude, but I did them by hand. just a 6 sided, 6 segmented tube, that I uv mapped and then bended in to fit correctly between 2 laceholes, and cloned and adjusted for each hole, and then welded them together. And for the final knot I welded togheter three of the tubes for each side and started rotating points. Probably sounds more tedious than it was.

And Cageman, hi! :)
