    Default Yorkshire Cottage

    Work in progress - one of those odd jobs where the point of the rendering is to show that the new work is not so noticable. This first image is unprocessed output direct from MicroGDS.

    I've uploaded a set of renderings in a whole range of techniques to my Smugmug gallery. Take a look there if you are interested. Maybe I'll include some tutorials on the various techniques in the subscription website too!

    great images all look good to me but all with the same problem...the area out-with the site. The road in front of the wall looks far from ideal. maybe it needs some texture or some grunge near to the wall and fence. or some edge detail - weeds, gutter, cobbles, double yellow lines etc.......not done any myself for yonks (is that a word?) tho...Just my opinion


    regards

    You are correct of course - and all of the edges need to be chamfered, but the original intention with these renderings was just to produce a simple block model. I just got a bit carried away....

    Hi John,

    Good stuff.

    My only comment, constructive of course, is that the car-body in the foreground is too "shiny".

    It pulls the eye somewhat, and thereby detracts from the rest of the scene.

    If, however, that was the intention then I salute!

    Best regards,

    James.

    It's very good.

    But I agree that the road is a 'tad too "smooth", texture, or a pavement maybe?

    At the end of the day though, if that is the site, then that is the site! You can't "tweak" reality and stay honest!

    Nice-one John.
