Tidy tour desk up arran,

that's a mess!

It's been an age since I looked at this (or any thread) and by-ek lad you done good! Absolutely smashing job, you've come such a long way on this project..... A hearty pat on the back is well deserved.

I only looked at the last image (big thread can't be bothered) do you have anything planned for the scene, is it part of something larger or are you just working towards taking various stills of the scene?

Top notch,

Mat

happymat!! ha ha - thanks a lot mate - really appreciate the good words.

yeah - i'm basically just trying to recreate, as close as possible, the office where i work as an exercise to practise texturing. at the moment i'm just wiring everything up and adding a few last details and then i plan to start doing some renders and a few close ups. I 'm hoping to get it finished up in the next week so i can move on to something else.

thanks again mat - i'm looking forward to seeing your next project!

You seriously work in that?!?

Holy crap get a cleaner!!!

Only kidding, I'm sure that's the desk of the person you share an office with!!

Not sure what my next project is going to be but let's hope it's paid!!

Take it easy and keep up the good stuff,

Mat.

Incredible work arran. The modeling looks fantastic and the textures are spot on not to mention one of the most realistic mental ray renders I have seen.

Keep up the great work,

Leon
