Hi all,

Here's my first static model submission - a grain elevator.



Note: I've reworked the door and door runner by adding bevels to provide the illusion of depth.

Best regards, Chris

Hi Chris,

Wow, that grain elevator looks great! The only thing that could be improved, is the door. In my opinion it looks too flat and has too much contrast with that full black and white.

And I see a very interesting object in the background. It seems to be a loading tipple of a mining company you're working on? Wink

Keep on with your great work.

Best regards,

Willi

Hi Willi,

Thanks for the advice and your encouragement. I'll try to address those points.

Thanks again for that tutorial on model construction in your forum. I'll forward my self-tutorial to you again after I get more comfortable with the process and finalize the documentation.

Yes, you're right; that's a tipple I'm struggling with in the background.

Best regards, Chris

Hi all,

Thanks! I know it's not very well done so I'll keep refining it as I gain more experience.

Happy New Year to all, Chris

Another effort - a farm market building one might find roadside selling fresh produce directly from the farm.

Hi Peter,

Thanks.

I'm using AC3D in conjunction with fragMOTION as Willi had suggested. I'm preparing the textures with Photoshop.

Best regards, Chris

Hi Dave,

Just let me know. I know that Biggs had mentioned something about a railway station add-on as well. I'll have to get back with him to get a better idea of what he's interested in.

I'm still working on technique between modeling and texturing. It's a bit of a chore but it will improve with time (as well as the modeling/texturing).

Happy New Year, Chris
