Alias Maya 6.5 | Software Render
This is my first post here. Temple scene modeled & rendered for David Arkenstone's Temple Of Isis video. Mix of polygonal and Nurbs modeling. Textures prepared by me. There was a lot of work to do in short time and it have to be rendered on 4500 pixels - that's why it was impossible render it on Mental Ray because scene was too heavy for my computers. I got a lot of "Not Enough Memory" messages. For solving this I started to add lights - a lot of fill lights with highest decay rate and some key lights also orange bright lights for torches. Flames of torches painted with Paint FX. For a long time I wanted to work on a night scene - my very first attempt was Temple Of Vaal - and when David asked for a temple in the night I thought it's a great opportunity to try my best on it.
We named it Temple Of Isis because of the title of the song but the temple is not the exact model of the real one. I used a lot of my imagination.
