Red face Temple Of Iris - WIP









Temple Of Iris: Ancient Egyptian Temple Environment - work in progress. Comments and critiques are welcome.



I've used a art history book of mine about ancient Egyptian temples. Scanned images from there and edited heavily to fit them to the architecture.

looking very nice, Love the lighting. One thing that will help the realism to your stone work is beveling the edges. Right now they look much too sharp and "3D" if you're using maya just select edges > edit mesh > bevel. there is an option box there and you may need to tweak the settings to get the desired result. keep up the good work!

Default temple feedback

I love this! My favorite part of creating 3d artwork is making the textures so I can really appreciate what you have done. Does this temple have an open roof. The bright lighting on the outer walls suggests that it does. If so, maybe a backdrop of sky would really set the scene off. As it is, your background is dark, but the outer part of the temple is very bright - visually confusing. If the temple is all enclosed, then the outer part of the temple should be darker, like the inner walls by the torches. That would give it a great mood. Very nice work though!
By the way, how did you get your images to view large? I have just started posting and all I am able to post is thumbnails.

Hey, thank you very much for your kind words! Glad you liked my work. It has an open roof and an open sky would be good for the background as you said.

I think I should refine the lighting and hard corners of the mesh. Re-render it and add a sky background. Would be a better finish

I'm a bit timid about Maya... I always think I am not good on it enough. Also creating 3D from scratch is a laboring process. Since I'm coming from Bryce/Vue/Poser world, sometimes it feels tedious Still, creating everything by yourself is an awesome thing.

About full size thing. I uploaded that image to my web site and added it with Insert Image command button (appears above on message box) So site resized it for the sake of the forum and added full view option.

Thanks again for comments and encouragement...
