Exterior Modeling 101 by smokejaguar Exterior Modeling 101 by smokejaguar
Well, Another 3D project from school. Starting to feel the grind.

== Details ==
Schematics were provided as well as a Reference photograph, used to specify the color theme.

Modeling took quite a while since I tend to forget the controls if i don't practice much, which is always the case. Anywho the professor asked us to model with accuracy in mind and realism.

Well, ran out of patience... I guess I'll work on the realism part sometime this weekend. Why? PC almost died from overkill rendering power requirement.

Ok, guys... Feel free to hammer away, critiques are welcome.

well...the house and the trees beside it looks a little bit off...look at a part of the roof beside the left tree..bwahihi..I am not an expert.. I just want to help..

lol, yeah couldn't find a picture with the right angle and solar direction... What makes it obvious is the lower quality background and the difference in lighting.

I intentionally made the tree go beyond the Border to give it depth. Like how magazines let the model cover part of the magazines "Title" to give the "3D Depth" feeling.

Ex. Models head partly covers the "M" in FHM

k, I'll get rid of that house thing behind it... Didn't notice it earlier, lol. 3AM before I finished the render.

I'll adjust the lighting angle of the 3D model when i'm in the mood, lol. It takes me an hour or so render this thing.

Cheers for the comment.

ok so far this looks reeeallly good but the reflection is to apparent that its desert also the lighting isn't in sync with the background.

Yeah, well I was planning to render it totally on MAYA, but my PC couldn't handle the extreme load (Vegetation, HDRi Lighting, Terrain, etc.). So I had to do it the "ye olde fashioned way". Anyway, this setup was a last minute thing I did, this composite wasn't exactly planned but, your right, you have a good eye.

I'll see what I can do.
