Extremely nice. No it's more than extremely--its some of the best detail work I've seen recently!

I have 2 questions:
(1) How long did you spend on it
(2) How'd you do the sidewalk. I'm working on a sidewalk and have found the only way to make it look real is with lots of small image maps. One single map pixellates if it's stretched over the whole sidewalk.

What an amazing piece of work, I'm finding it hard to see what's real and what's not. It's not all CG is it?

WOW!

The only detail that immediately jumps at me: The european license plates on the cars. It's a big hassle - but edit your Dosch cars so they have US state plates.

Other than that...wonderful work.

Thanks for comments...

There is not compositing ... all lightwave, all CG.
I have worked on this project for 300 hours approximately. the sidewalk is complicated, is a base image, then I has added other levels (many levels!!).
Rendering time: 30 Hours in 5 different passages.
Used filters: Corona, vector blur
I have used also FPrime
N° of poly 2.700.000

Awesome. I love the detail with the curtains behind the windows. Only one crit, the concrete plant holder thing on the very right has a repeating texture. do you have a higher res for us to look at?

minor detail to critique is that the plaza hotel is on an open corner on central park south, not in the middle of an avenue.

your amazing success lies in capturing the "feel" of being in midtown one afternoon. some slight brownish smog would take that capture to the next level.

congratulations on some fine work.

That is really cool. Great work!

And really nice of you to wash all the crusted salt and grime off those cars, too. ;)

I´ve been around these forums for only two years and at Lightwave I am still an amateur, but I have seen a lot and I work as a cinematographer (35mm,16mm & HD).

This piece of work is the best I have seen, the level of detail, the dirt on the pavement and how extremely huge this model is really amazes me, that you could pull this off in "only" 300 hrs is simply amazing!

Congratulations, THIS is inspiration!

Great work!

Nice lighting, texturing... very nice :)

I have a question... how much of this did you model?

Complimenti Vass sia per le texture sia per gli oggetti e per il render...sono contento che fra tanti stranieri almeno uno sia italiano ...ehehehehehe
Se dovessi aver bisogno di una mano per progetti lavorativi futuri fammi sapere...me la cavo anch'io con lightwave...sopratutto con le auto

And I have a question. I am working a short film much of which is set in Times Square. I am trying to achieve the same kind of feel as you have pulled off. I was wondering about your texturing. Did you do it? Are you in New York and simply making your own textures? Or did you find them somewhere? If the later, can tell me where? I am not currently in New York and not likely to go back for a while but want to get the best look I can get.

Thanks,

Shawn

I have not modeled only some cars

I have not never seen new york. I have studied (for 6 or 7 hours) the city with of the images that I have found on google. The texture are normal, nothing of particular. Simply, they are a lot cured, many levels. I have tried to create all in way many accurate with many levels and many procedural maps

I have to say that it has a slight flavor of a European city. Not counting the cars of course. Yes it looks very much like NY but there's something about it that looks a little European, too.

Awesome work.

The only thing that bothers me slightly is the white sky. There is a strong sunlight on one of the buildings so I would expect the sky to be a little more blue... having said that, a lot of my pictures come out with white sky in them, even though it's blue in real life!

That is a super realistic render... The detail in the windows of the buildings blow me away. Good job.

Very very nice. . . one thing that definately makes it stand out as CG: no people...

Some careful compositing and selection of people would add a lot to the scene, i think.

If you wanted to nitpick, the buildings look new. I would try to add some dirt. I say it looks closer to chicago then New York in the sence of the building clean look. Let me say that the image is still impressive.

Seeing this did 2 things for me...
1) Gave me insparation to keep working LW for a very long time.
2) Reminded me how large a computers potential is for any kind of art (I thought that sh*t was real! :eek: )

Great work.

The european license plates on the cars. It's a big hassle - but edit your Dosch cars so they have US state plates.

More generally I'd say you should put some american
cars… Is it really believable to see so many Audis in NYC ?

lasco
03-27-2005, 06:43 AM
err… not that I want to offend you but…
how can I say ? There is a kind of un-written rule
on forums (well i noticed it) that makes that when
people post images like this they're asked to post
also a wire to make sure this is really 3D and not photo
hehehe… ;)

so any wire to show off ?

Awesome work.

Parking meters and authentic street parking signs or bus shelter would really add to it...if thats possible.- how about horse and buggy.

Underground garage (grimy), and bagel shop with green awning- all on main street. New York is cramped, but it could easily be Sunday morning @ 6am.:)

Your rendering is absolutely amazing. I work on architectural renderings using lightwave, and I have yet to find a method to achieve (what i would call) hyper-realism. Im fascinated by work work and was wondering if you'd share some more tips, maybe your lighting rig? I would greatly appreciate that advise. Thanks you so much.
