Some WIP
11/21/07 at 01:36:00
 
Hey all, here's some recent work I've been working on.

This is:
    Photographic back plate (the buildings are the photo everything else is 3D)
    HDR 360 pano for reflections and lighting
    Using the new productions shaders for 3ds Max 2008 and MR
    Using MR's Arch Design Materials Exclusively on all objects.
    2 lights (Skylight + Keylight) with Final gather


Comments welcome.

Thanks,

Chris

Sweet.

The lighting looks dead on. The scene could benefit from some more texturing work, especially on the tree bark and some dirt textures on the Vespas. The tire, for example, is way too shiny and clean.
And in the corner of the buildings is an unnaturally deep shadow. I assume your photo textures already have that shadow in there, and it gets doubled up by Mental Ray now. Happens to me all the time as well - usually I tend to play with surface settings (more luminosity, less diffuse), but that;s just because I am too lazy to paint out the shadow from the texture (which is what you really should do).

And if you're looking for artistic input - it would look great with some out-of-focus foreground object to cover the empty area in the lower right corner of the frame. Some bush or bench or fire hydrant...

Overall, great image.

Blochi.
