I made this one in Max back in 2003 and it looks OK I guess. Now I'm doing it from scratch again aiming for more realism.



I've completed the modeling except for the back and bottom.

DB your product visualization and hard surface modeling (and rendering) skills are superb!

Another great start to what is certain to be a jaw dropping project.

ctbram, thanks for you kind words

anasasis, I didn't do any special tutorials for Maxwell. The manual is pretty god so I read that and I also read a lot on Maxwell's forum.

I modelled the back. So just the bottom left to do and maybe some minor tweaks, then it's on to textuering and materials.

Very nice modeling (as usual). I like the blue clay. I know it's juts for previews sake.... but hey

Everything is looking nice and smooth.

Looking forward to seeing the renders.

I was thinking about picking up a copy of Vray or Maxwell, can't quite decide which. I'm starting to think that vray seems most apt when it comes to interior/architectural visualizations... and Maxwell seems to cover (well) everything else.... (correct if wrong) .


Anyway, nice work.

Chirone: Yes, everything is modeled, no bump or displacement on the renders, just a plain lambert.

anasasis: These was about 30 mins... but the render time heavily depends on the complexity on the materials and scene. But usually you get a good looking 640x480 image in 1-2 hours.

Mayaniac: Maxwell does phenomenal interiors aswell. Haven't tried V-ray but my guess is that it's probably a lot faster but needs more work to get a good looking render.

A couple of minutes is good for test renders though.

For the gold shader I took the chrome shader and modified the colors.
