London Skies
"Nothing is certain except everything you know can change,
you worship the sun but now,
can you fall for the rain?"


- London Skies by Jamie Cullum





It's been rainy and oh so gray for the past few days.. it's starting to feel like London here in Sydney.. i miss my blue skies and sunshine. On the other hand though, i now have an excuse to wear my new hoodie to uni ;)

-----------------------------------------------------------

Oooh.. 3D Studio Max is way cool.. I've got a 3Ds Max class this sem so been learning how to use this software to model stuffs. Decided to try to model a design i did for my lighting design class this sem and i'm starting to really really like this software... :D

These are just some preliminary stuffs i've modeled so far. It's supposed to be a bar/lounge thingy. Haven't actually put in the lights and materials and all yet just some general lighting and the forms are in place.. need to add a bit more detail i think. Any comments so far? I'm just having fun with the test renders so have a look.. if the final ones turn out nice i'll post em up here too! *heee...*

The name of my bar/lounge is "eclissi" (eh-cleeh-seeh) meaning "eclipse" in italian - you get the idea.. anyways, everything here just rendered in gray scale so it looks like everthing's made out of porcelain (which i actually like).. another black and white post - sorry ;p


A peek at the interiors from the entrance area..

you know someone's going to be a successful interior architect when, ppl would love to stay even if the real state designed is not so 'real' state...

I love handles.

I hope they don't make you do texture wrapping, that was a bitch in 3D Studio Max back in uh... 1999.

Blogger grace_t said...
albert: haha me too.. and yes, the next stage is texture mapping *sighs* it's not that bad now tho.. pretty much straight forward is you know what you're doing :D
