my personal old work. – ‘Colloseum’
My principal inspiration was „Gladiator’ by Ridley Scott.

Image's been made on AMD Athlon XP 2.0 GHz with 1 GB RAM and GeForce 6200 in about: 50/55h

I've been using 3ds max 9, Vray and Mental Ray for the Ambient Occlusion pass.

This work was a test piece for developing a model for RealtimeUK company, they were very impressed with my work and level of detail. So that is why I'm in UK now :).

Some close-up: [link]

Hope you like it and your c&c are welcome as alwyas!

btw, have a look on this friend of mine work: [link] he is gooood !

Many thanks

This is really wonderful! I have a really hard time to think it's all just rendered! Very touching :D
Just a question, may I use this picture for a poster I am creating? I already have a nice gladiator from iStockphoto, but I need a scenery and this picture really fits my gladiator picture.

If it had flags on the top it would be just like one in Gladiator.
Nice job mate! :D

This is fantastic. Truly captures history and art all in one. By far my favorite picture of the Colosseum.

I'm impressed too, and liked reading the great story behind it. It's flawless work, and if I didn't know I would think it real. :)

Beautiful piece of work, the clouds and birds are a nice touch.

I'm having a tough time grasping the concept that this is an animation and not a photograph. Well done!
