This is the pic with one of the walls textured. The lighting is poor and will be redone by the next update:

Textures looking really great so far. The sky looks a little to blue considering how close the sun will be up there to being visable and with the amount of yello in the cast of it.

Very nice! I love the feel of this.

The bump on the bottom section of the wall is excellent; you might want to tone it down a bit on the top, though. It looks right now like someone chiseled deep holes in an otherwise smooth surface. Some more noise in the bump would also help here.

If you're going for photorealism, the blue sky looks a bit wrong considering the yellow look, like Pony said, but if this isn't exactly supposed to be realistic than it makes a very nice contrast with the yellow of the rest.

Thanks pony. The sky is only to fill the black space left in the render but i agree. It will prob end up almost pure white when i do it properly.

I need to find a way to stop the colour of the shutters casting onto the wall. Anyone know how? I'm using mental ray with final gather BTW.

Cheers carrot juice . I aggree with you on the wall I'll fiddle with the wall some more. I'm going for photorealism but might do a render with tomcat toonshade ad keep the contrasting colours.

EDIT: Still not finished modeling so will do that tonight.

hey Doc Rob

i think this'll look real nice once your done texturing, get a nice few spec maps on the wall and stuff to get a nic bit of spec coming off the stoney surfaces especially in that harsh sun, it'll add to the bump too!! and perhaps some diffuse maps i find they add that bit extra!!

Reminds me of a place in Mallorca where I used to hang out years ago with lots of beautiful Spanish women!!

Keep up the good work

Thanks Jango
I've never used spec maps but i understand the concept so will give it a go once I've finished modeling some more windows and stuff for the buildings up the street.

Made some ivy for the wall. It almost doubles the rendering time so it won't appear again untill the final render:
What do you think?

I think it looks great. Maybe find a way to get the shadow from the window shutters to blur a bit. The ivy looks great, but maybe add a small stump leading up to it so it doesn't look like it's comming out of nowhere, or add some more ivy down to floor level. Keep it up!
