Looks pretty cool.

Yeah, I have stuff that does not seem to go anywhere and people like and stuff I like and people not so much.

Something like this seems to cry for a pink unicorn or maybe not.

I have loads of stuff like this too haha :D
Sometimes the best thing to do in a rut is just to play around, most of the times it turns out alright but theres just some dead ends :P

you know the really sad part is this HORRIBLE tower of creative nothingness got nearly half of the views my gun got.

Now THAT is depressing

But then again, maybe its because i keep replying to people's messages ,p

they just dont know how special your gun really is and how much work you put into it, but then again, you just never quite know what the masses really want to see.

Ideas/thoughts....

Maybe at the end of the pipes that terminate on the inside of the pipe, have them spewing some kind of plasma that is creating buildup and glowing. Also a whole series of these with maybe some of your buildings would look cook with eerie green and deep red colors with dense fog around them could be made into some sci fi industrial picture.

Also possibly rivets, and armor plating like lines going down the outer sides would help break it up more. It's all very detailed at the top, but no detail on the part coming through the clouds.

I like the perspective btw. It's a good angle.

aside that its great ideas ;) Sorry if my other comment sounded flippant or something, I just honestly think this tower is NOT salvageable for a proper scene even given full details and such, but your idea for a sci fi scene sounds interesting. Mhh, have to sleep about that one

Yeah but the tower looks so ugly, more details just means you will notice it even more, i mean the uglyness of it

I think it causes more views when i write witty and funny dialog in my submissions than some useless details nobody gives 2 cents about ;p

Besides, that monologue was witty right? I mean nobody would have expected either the questions NOR the answers. ^^

Wait wait go back, I disagree with all the comments that ass was asking you! (and Im assuming from the monologue mode that the ass was you ;))

I think that thing actually looks very nice. Textured or not, it caught my attention damn quick.
I actually really like the way that looks.

And in the end, after the 4 hours, how did you end up doing the clouds?

I figured after messing about with the actual pretty nice looking but somehow, weirdly not full enough clouds from the cloud tool of c4d

to use volumetric lights one black (with dust 100%) and one white, with dust 0 (but smaller, and inside the black one) with wave noise.

Then i just copied it a trillion times.. it actually looked pretty nice WITHOUT the tower, sadly as you can see, the fact i used non-local noise caused the noise to become "camera planar" so it looks like the tower is standing in a WALL of clouds, instead of ABOVE the clouds ;p

Speaking of that, theres alot of way for clouds but none which really renders fast enough and is dense enough for "above clouds" renderings, i'd need to use heavy photoshopping ;(

Hmm fair enough. PyroCluster looks nice but takes forever to render...

How did you end up doing the trillion copies? just copy paste move? or mograph or something elaborate? Mograph with a random effector could have created something abit more along the right lines perhaps?

Still in the end it looks relatively good still.

I just copied them in a pack of 10 and copied that pack 10 times ;p then grouped and copies those 3 times and move em about etc.

It went pretty fast, mograph can't fix the fact that noise in c4d lights doesn't have a real seed though, so its never truly "random"

Also ich finde es sieht echt cool aus egal ob mit Textur oder nicht. Und um ehrlich zu sein manchmal kann eine Textur auch so einiges kaputt machen.^^

Hihi ;) Ja das stimmt 100% ;( Manches wirkt nur gut ohne Texturen, also ist ja nicht wirklich ohne Texturen, dann wäre es ja unsichtbar, aber du weißt schon was ich meine, halt nur weiß mit Schatten und Schattierungen hat eben sein eigenes Flair ;)

Man nennt das ja auch Clay-Renderings , nur warum? Ka, jedenfalls mach ich die recht häufig, es zeigt eben doch auch mehr Details ;p

well i must say...its sertianly....different :P also it looks like there might be some cloud or some sort of blue plasma eminating from insite the structure ;) dunno if its ment to be in it or not

eRe4s3r Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2009
yeah, is meant to be ;p

Actually, theres a nicer way to do clouds, is just so damn render time intensive ;(

I'm in my creative hole atm, btw, when are those building sketches coming? I need new creativity ;(
