Mysterious Box

Today i am adding a mysterioous pandoras box type box that will sit on top of the podium which is situated in the hallway of the temple and will be seen at the end feature of the 3D walkthrough. I am also thinking of changing the layout of the blog.

Different View


Here is a render where i have added the rest of the textures


Today i had a breakthrough with using Skytracer, i want to get the feeling of a sunny type of day and sometime between 12PM and 1:30PM

Below is my first successfull attempt at Skytracer. Will obviously be playiing around and tweaking it to get the desired effect.

Also you may notice the newly coloured grass Thanks to Rob's recommendation of grabbing some colour with the eye dropper tool in photoshop from a real photo.

Camera Movement

The camera movement to show off our 3D model is required to go for 30 seconds. I am thinking of having the camera off to the side of the temple at first and not moving then at around 5 seconds start it moving foward gradually moving up the stairs of the temple, and then after reaching the top of the temple the camera will then  go inside a small hidden hallway and reveal a hidden box. But who knows what inside??

February 23, 2011

Today i will be sketching some ideas of what i would like to have my temple looking like, and uploading them at a later date. Also will brainstorm some more ideas.

Thinking of the setting being sunny daytime, surrounded by a jungle - type surrounding.

more temple images to come

I am going to be creating a mayan style temple, most likely surrounded by jungle type foliage and have creepers coming from the decaying temple to show it has benn there a long time.

As i continue my research i may choose to move it to another location, but as of now i am going with a jungle type theme. My inspiration to create this came from playing Uncharted recently and i liked the environment.
