Default Donkey Kong Arcade

I've started this Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet from 1981 this week, and now the modeling is finished.

Most of the texturing and materials are done. I'll post some new renders hopefully tomorrow.

Wow, you're modeling something big now! I can't wait to see how it looks when you're done, your video game projects are always top notch.

It really depends on how complex materials and how the lighting is set up how long the redners take - and how good quality you want, and the resolution aswell.

Lets say you can get a decent render in one hour per average:

1 hour x 24 frames x 120 sec = 2880 hours = 120 days = 4 months.... haha

On the other hand... of you can render a frame in 5 mins:

5 min x 24 frames x 120 sec = 14400 mins = 240 mins = 4 hours.

However 5 mins isn't a very good looking image...

starjsjswars: minutes.. not seconds.

It will probably be in good condition. Some scratches etc. but not very much.

Not bad, can't wait to see in full render.

The only thing that I noticed right away is the buttons. It seems wrong in some way. Then I realized that the buttons are "tall". It should look shorter, or just almost flushed to the "ring".

I found an example of what I'm talking about.

Buttons up close

Good luck!

Yeah I know the button was a bit tall, I've made them lower already. However they are not as low on my ref pics (on donkey kong) as on your photo.

joopson, I'll post a pic of the studio setup when I get home from work.

Here's the lighting setup. I've changed it slightly though. But basically a blue light above, a white light from the left and a white light almost from the front, but a bit to the right.
