The other two bits for the showreel will be from the film, and will also most likely be hardsurface. Not sure what the models will be yet though.

finally i am posting on my enemy
But i want all crit before i start making changes to my showreel pieces and start wasting time rendering again- ugh, without editing mistakes- which is what seems to be happening lately.
My first piece that i had made isn't worthy of this post and i am deciding to scrap it and make something new. so instead of three bits at the moment, i am back down to two.
my two showreel pieces so far are based for the my film at the moment, so they are quite stylised or at least they should be!
sooo... any advice or crit you have, tell me as id like to work on them
Thanks in advance
This was low poly, and because of that the shadows came out gammy, particuarly for the turn around. Also im scrapping the turntable thingy
And the above just some renders, didnt want to make the same mistake of rendering for ages, and then having to re do it.
i know about the flame, dont really know how to do that one...
and i know its well dark.

Regarding book binding, Bibliodyssey has a few interesting images
But this might be too flash for your inn
Here's a French 18th century binding
also in black
Also there is a flickr set that might be worth a trawl http://www.flickr.co...N24/pool/page4/ although most of the books are 19th century or younger.

i did add a light aswell to make it less dark this end, not sure if it worked mind
and i didn't know how to make a flame, i tried hard and failed. so this is literally a plane with a flame on it.

LRC is a book called Deconstructing the Elements by Pete Draper. It has an excellent candle flame in 3d effect in it.

ill have a look at that
Posted 20 November 2011 - 11:55 PM
and a fill light has been added,
I need to sort my bump out on the rocks, and im going to alter the lighting so it looks a bit warmer too, more so like my previous render

Definitely improved, there is some slight blurring on the roof tiles, don't know if you can sharpen those up a bit? It's the texture looking slightly cloudy...
Posted 21 November 2011 - 09:57 AM
I sharpened the tiles several times and this was the result, i think it was becasue when i made the texture for this i did alot of gaussian bluring any way
i prefer the lighting on this one and i tried to bring the bump back on the rocks, not sure if it is an improvement or not.

In terms of the tile texture, you could try picking out some details with a darker colour and a thin brush? It all depends if you want them more defined or not of course, could be just me
Love the bucket btw! It deserves some love too!
