Creating Relatively Portal by linkitch Creating Relatively Portal by linkitch
To give people a bit of insight, here you can see the different stages in which Relatively Portal was created.

1. Took me about 3 days to create the scene, and then about 2 days to create the 3 props.

2. More props added. Note, the Companion cube was also created at this stage, you just can't see inside the dispenser.

3. Textures were coming to life. I actually thought at this point I was done modeling, but as you'll see in the next couple of images, I soon learned I needed more items in my scene to get a better balance.

4. More textures and props added.

5. Here almost everything has the correct texture. Some things needed correction, such as the wall textures being turned the wrong way.

6. The first lighting test, had to figure out exactly how I needed to light the scene. This was also the point where I switched to Vray (an alternative render)

7. The Picture composition still needs a bit.

8. Turned the turret, added the proper glass displacement to the window and the glowing lines that connect buttons and doors.

9. For the last picture, it might not appear like that much has happened, but trust me, when you blow it up in 3500x4500 pixels you really see all the errors :P

I feel bad for you... You had prolonged exposure to the button. But I think it was worth it.

The result if valve made gravity one of the physics you could alter.

Final version is awesome, but I think it would make more sense for the turret to be facing the stairs.
linkitch Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Making sense and have something look artistically good isn't always the same.

well said. do you have a youtube channel? :?
linkitch Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
I do, but I'm not a big uploader on there. But if you still want to find it, it's the same name as I use here.

exactly what kind of school do you go to?
linkitch Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
A school called 3D College, it's located in denmark. It's where I learned pretty much all I've learned so far.
kjthemighty Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
nice, could understand from the type of task you got from the school that it was no regular one d:

Holy crap, this is really phenomenal. I mean, almost all of that just went WAY over my head. Fantastic to teach us how to make it as well!

i love how it looks at step 6 better. no offence, its the lighting, much more dynamic.
chris220 Featured By Owner May 12, 2008
That's the point, the test chambers are always well lit, and pure looking in the game :P

Interesting, i'd rather assumed all the models and materials had been imported from the game, rather than being duplicated. Goes to show how good a job you did I guess.

Why the odd aspect ratio of height to width?
linkitch Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2008
I didn't exactly chose this aspect, it was more of a compromise seeing as I needed to add more stuff for it to be interesting, so i chose to extend it vertically. Also I had in the back of my mind, the idea that I wanted to get it printed as a poster at some point, so I guess that also played a part.
