Default The room

This was a big learning experiance. I realy put a large amount of time into creating this. I learned alot about modeling in corect ratios, and layouts, and lighting. I may add texture to it later on when I know more about texturing, but untill then, it is a b&w. I realy would love to know what all of you guys think. Please, dont just read this and not reply! I respect all of your 2 cents.

Ahh! It's horrid! Terrible! It burns my eyes!! lol. Just kidding. I think it's great myself. You did a nice job with everything as far as I'm concerned. The chairs, the table cloth, the couch, the railing... it all looks good mate. I think I like the actual layout of the room the best, though.

Looks pretty good. My only comment is the height of the middle platform seems really low. There isn't much sitting room on the couches underneath.

hmm well there are two steps down, which adds to the height (i'm not sure)

But then the stairs are unpractical, as the upstep is propably too high.

But I love architectural scenes!

the slope of the stairs is a bit steep, imho. and from the height of the chairs upstairs, the stair should be at least 8 steps in total (one step should not be higher than 11 or 12 inches). and then what danny said - i would say scaling the couches smaller would help so that they are 1/4 to 1/3 of the ceiling height about.

but great room so far - and nicely lit

I think the details are great! The tablecloth, the chairs, the railing, the couches, the stairs going to the middle level and back the other way to the upper level in shadow. The shadows left by the two different lights. Nice.

I think you could work on the proportions. From my limited knowledge of construction and archictecture I would imagine the level with the dining table on it was an add-on. A more realistic solution to the space problem - i assume here that the floor and ceiling can't be adjusted but the table level can - would be to raise it about 2feet. The first stairs would come out further but there's a little room to play with. The dining table would then be higher and the level of the windowsills would be closer to a realistic height from the table - so that people sitting at the table could enjoy the view. If the distances are arbitrary I would just adjust the proportions so that the couches had some head room - otherwize anyone entering the little couch alcove would dent their forehead on the beam.
Nice work!

Default question

Is this gallery worthy?

Almost gallery worthy.

I still think the height of the middle level is too low. If you put a 6-foot tall person underneath, there's maybe a foot or two of clearance. That makes for extremely cramped quarters in the sitting area.

Now that I look at it some more, the door on the right/lower level seems a bit small compared to the couches. Either the couches are really big -- 4 ft high -- or the door is really small -- 5-6 ft high. Something needs to be adjusted.

Also, I would adjust the framing of the image to eliminate the black background. That might entail adjusting the camera and/or moving objects around. We should be seeing the room not a part of a box with interior elements.

The lighting looks really nice though.
