Recently I've got back into doing 3D art again, which is good news for all of us. There was a gap where i didn't do any due to Maya being unuseable on this computer, it having gotten too slow. Now i've fasted it up again, and am back to using Rhino, which i find pretty good for making this kind of thing.
The original idea for the New House pictures was nothing like this. It was going to be a view seen through the window of a futuristic/ultramodern apartment, all silver and blue. Then i started making the furniture and it got all normal-like, it's still modern but a lot more down to earth. And the focus is much more on the room than the views. In Evening, the clouds are Terragen. In Morning, they are part of a photo i took while out with Cathryn, that wasn't really decent enough for submission as it was.
You don't need to point out the obvious logical flaws in the pictures (because i want to first!). Yes i know the sunlight comes in through the window in the same direction at both times of day. Yes i know the clock says the same time in both pictures. etc.
There's the good old obvious flaws in the model/render too. But as Miles Davis said, "so what?".
The point is, there was originally going to be one of these, the Evening one looked a bit odd so i made the next one, which was way too dark, so i used the first one. Then i lightened the second and it became Morning so i used both, call it a two part thing if you like. In fact there may well be more art on the way taken in this room, from different places - i spent quite a lot of time building the objects that are behind me in those, so there's probably a few more at least on the way, depending on quality.
And I have more ideas up various sleevy things too, so if you're lucky, new and better scenes soon. Once work has loosened it's hold on my days (fifteen hours in two days - means i can soon buy a bike anyway).
Also, went out to an Italian restaurant in Swansea Marina t'other day, hence all those long exposure night shots. Mmmmmm, long exposure (well, only two seconds, it's all my mam's camera will do, it's called night mode).
That's all the explaination these things need for now. G'night all.
