Lighting Project

Hey guys so here's another project that I did in my second year, all to do with Lighting. The aim of the project was to create a room and basically light it. We had to do different times of the day, so one for dawn, daylight, dusk and night.
All the stuff in the room wasn't model by myself, it was actually models that I downloaded of the web, since our main object was only to do with lighting an environment and how to make it look good.
I did learn alot from this project as it did teach me how using light in a scene can make the environment seem more believable, and its something that I'am going to be incorporating into my work when the time is needed.

Minor Project

While I am still working on my submarine project I decided to post some of my old work the I did in my second year of Uni. This project I believe was the first project I did as a CG Artist, the aim of the project was to create two crates and two barrles.
For the first crate I decided to go with a WW2 era, hence the bullet holes in the crate and the dust and cobwebs to give it the look of it being old.
I wanted to make the second crate look more futuristic, hence the more metalic look and neon lights.
As for the barrels I decided to do on traditional wine barrel and a toxic oil drum.
Out of all of them, I think I was more pleased with the WW2 crate, probably because It was the one I had the most fun making.

Submarine update

Just finished of the model for my submarine, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I've still got some more work to do on the texturing, and I will probably be making the environment look a bit better then what it is right now.

Hey guys, so last night I watched the first episode of BBC's new drama "The Deep", I found it to be quite interesting and will probably keep watching it. What I really liked about the show was the way they showed the scenes underwater especially with the submarine. So I decided to model my own submarine.

I actually started to model one last night, but in the morning I decided to delete it since it was starting to look too much like something from space, I also wanted my Submarine to seem as if it could really be made (like they did in "The Deep") and so I went back a re-moddelled it.

I have the structure, its Un-wrapped and I've done some projection mapping on it as well. I also plan to do some more modelling just get some little details in their that will make it look nice.

Im away on Holiday in about 2 weeks time so I'm hoping to have it finished by then.

Hey guys so I can't actually remember when i last wrote on my blog but has been a while, I believe on my lost post I wrote that I was in the middle of modelling a new character, well to be honest I pretty much got side tracked from that project and decided just not to do it ( doesn't mean though that I want try it soon). I havn't done any model for some time now, so to get back into it I decided to model something easy.

Hopefully I will have something up on this blog that's abit more artistic but for now this will have too do.
