View Full Version : The Balcony

This is something i did today to practice my texturing. Rendered with F9, some backround radiosity, 35min render. Ive been wanting to make a balcony scene for a while, so here it is. Comments appreciated!

Up to your usual standard .. curse ya! ;) :p

One thing is for sure, you sure prove LW is more than capable of doing some lovely architectural work. :D

yup, another one added to my "great images" folder, keep this up and I'll have to make an Otacon folder! :)

beautiful !
very nice texturing.
did you create the texture yourself or did you get them on a CD ?

its good...do you have any oter angles or something?

great work, as usual i would have to say!

I noticed in your works this soft stile- you seem to like surfaces with little or no specularity and allways this soft glow that illumintes your objects. This is not a bad thing, but it would be interesting if you could try to do the opposit- make a scene with sharp, rough materials, specular and dirty objects..no softt glow and sharp shadows-

Thanks guys.
JML: Most the textures are from the 3dtotal texture cds.

sidetrak: No other angles, i set the scene up to work at this camera view. Thats how i usually do it for stills, just make what will be seen. ;)

veljko: Your right, i do have that kind of look to my renders....i guess i just like that look. But it would be cool to do something sharp and cold for once. :)

oh well thats all good and well...if i had to get really picky i might say that the tree shadow is maybe a little low resolution , or maybe its just jagged, i still love the scene though

You need a Juliet standing on the balcony - oh wait, that would be a night scene.

Wonderful image as always.

How do you make this awesome work so quickly?

Do you sit down and draw a scene first so you know what you want before you even open LW?

Thanks. I usually start with some kind of photo reference. For this i had a picture of a wall with a door, and that sparks the idea, then i just work from that and add in what i want.

Great image...love the textures. One complaint......what is that rope thing coming off the top of the door? I find it distracting in that it leads the eye away from the photo......can't stop staring at it. Again good job.

That rope thing is an electrical wire...it is kinda distracting.

Very nice work! I think your leaf needs specular!
