Hi guys,

Thx for the reactions ...

The boiler is behind the camera ... I guess I should have called it "Pipe Dream" or "Pipe Mania" or so (but that name was already copyrighted by Lucasfilm) , lol

Gr,

Maurits

Looks really good, only thing I can comment on is the repeating pipe texture. Other than that, good job!

Looks good,
The pipe texture seems a bit bright and is distracting from the rest of the scene. Other than that its great

Love the textures, and all the rest really.

Wondered, when you model a bend in a pipe like that, how do you so it? Is it extruded or wedged, or do you use a deformer?

Anyway, great render.

cheers,

gubar.

Hi all,

Thx for all the comments ...

I'm still working on my texturing skills ...

I used about 13 nurbs cricles placing each in right angle to create the bend, at both ends I scaled some of them a bit bigger to create the ridge, in the and I lofted everything together. In the end I build a complete pipe tool kit with all kind of shapes, always handy a kit like that if your in need of some plumbing

Gr,

Maurits

Not a bad try at all.
Modelling is excellent, cant see any tesselation problems, the detail is all there nicely but there are a few things that could make this nice image more appealing:

It needs a little more sense of depth and darkness, try an ambient occlusoin pass along with some more detailed diffuse and specular map corrosponding with the rust nicely.

Differenciate the textures a little more the floor and walls feel a little simmilar, get some reds into the rust and some muddy and dull cracks into the walls, damp into the celing.
Other things that would help is volumetric lighting an maybe bring some of the details closer to foreground, it seems a little flat and exclusively mid-ground.
