I am back

After a couple of months of complete and utter neglect of this blog, I have decided I need to try and get back on the wagon and try and post regularly, at least once a week. In the past two months I have been working on a couple of different projects: a kitchen, an indoor […]

Dining Room

Dining Room

So, I haven’t posted in the past couple of weeks because it has been fingers to the proverbial grindstone, or in this case, keyboard and mouse. I have been doing another tutorial on archviz, this time a dining room. I had the bulk of it modelled within a week and the texturing is the thing […]

Update time

Update time

Just an update to what is going on at the moment. My PC is up and running although in the end I didn’t bother RMAing the  Antec Kuhler H20 920 that started acting up. This past week I have been modelling the pulse rifle that I found on an old model kit I have of Motoko […]

Maya mental ray street revision

Posted by on Aug 27, 2013 in Works In Progress | No Comments

Got up to here, as of last night, but didn’t get time to post. I believe I came across the cause of my rendering issues, or at least 2 possible causes. Firstly there was some kind of issue with rendering a referenced object with an included texture. Secondly I had a PSD network on the […]

Weekend work

Posted by on Jul 29, 2013 in New Project, Works In Progress | No Comments

We had a guest over the weekend, so I spent most of the time cooking, chatting and socialising – something which was definitely needed as work tends to be all I do apart from look after my grandmother. I did manage to pop this out quickly. It was only supposed to be a quick thing […]

Land Rover has been re-panelled!

Land Rover has been re-panelled!

After importing the model into Maya, I looked over the model again and decided that all of the panels needed splitting up into individual pieces, as when I first modelled it, I had just box modelled it and left it entirely in one piece!! Obviously, that was far from ideal, so over the weekend I […]

Moving along – seat modelling and stitching

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in News, Works In Progress | No Comments

Today I find myself working on seats for the Land Rover. I have modelled the front two and the rear seat is essentially the same as the front passenger seat, with some verts moved around for change’s sake. I have modelled the seams for the seats, 5 section bevel close together, extrude then scale in […]

Old projects, restarted – environmental and vehicular

Right, I was planning on doing this on Sunday night but it didn’t happen, and yesterday’s hot weather made my room a furnace to work in – so much so that a decent fan needs to be purchased!! Firstly, the submarine pen images – I will need to work on the lighting, it is not […]

Pretty much done

Posted by on May 24, 2013 in Works In Progress | No Comments

This is almost done – colour wise. I will be rendering out at 180 degree clay type wireframe of just the house on a plain background. I will be leaving a full colour render up as well though, I am just uncertain of the background. Obviously at the moment it is out of scale and […]

Quick update

Posted by on May 10, 2013 in Works In Progress | No Comments

After a relaxing 10 days away, I got back to the model. Well, actually I was spending way more time fiddling around with the tree shader. It was definately good practice and have learned quite a bit about vegetation shading. For the final piece, I think I shall use a different tree however, as it […]
