Hey there, fellow polybros(and sises)!
Here's a little something I've been working on lately. It's an environment roughly based on an amazing picture
by Arnold Tsang that I absolutely adore. I would like to thank Arnold once again btw for making great art and for letting me use it.
I didn't just replicate the thing in 3d though, but rather used it as a base to build upon. My story with it is that it's a garage of some genius kid, who built a robot working on(or making) soup for some sort of a school project.=) The scene has some futuristic stuff, though time is indefinite. I just combine things I see fit trying to keep a little childish feel through the whole thing.
Still plenty of stuff to do. I've gotta finish the robo arm under the ceiling, the ladder on wheels(how do you call it anyway?) and a couple of tool carts. Then a whole bunch of filler props to create an illusion of a really cluttered workplace of a genius kid(cardboard boxes, tools, toys, spare parts, pieces of paper, etc...).
I would really love to hear what you guys think especially concerning lighting and atmosphere. Once again please tear me apart - I desperately need to get much better. Srsly. So crush me - I'll love it)
Personally, I think that the robot head is really overblown right now, even though that's how the light would really work. I'm thinking about making a different lighting channel for the head and toning this down a bit. What do you guys think? Maybe just toning down bloom would be enough?
Oh and here's a render I did for Arnold a while ago. It's supposed to show the SoupBot highpoly to some extent:
It really took a lot of restrain not to overload the poor guy with details.=)
I also a made a little PROGRESS ANIMATION
in case someone's interested.
In the animation at day 12 you can see how the robot head is not so overblown - iroically it because I had a little issue
with lighting.=) So when I fixed it became the way it is now.)
Oh and yeah there are some Epics' props that come with UDK here and there and tbh I don't really plan on redoing them. Do you think it's be okay? I mean I hope the sutff I did shows my ability to model and texture so now I want to display my ability to make a pretty environment with everything I have.
Anyway I thank you for your attention Have a nice day and I hope to have some update for ya soon.)
