Post Portfolio - Big Download!

Hey guys, its been awhile since I've posted anything, been really busy with school and getting my portfolio together. Here's a few pieces from it, some of you may have seen some of these already. Any C&C is appreciated. I'm sending it off to the uni's soon, so wish me luck

Nice work blinn. I think the second image with the bear needs some work with the lighting and shadows though. It might be better to select one primary light and use that for your shadows as at the moment they seem to be in different directions. For instance, the outer right side of the box looks like it's lit yet there's shadows. The bear is also casting a shadow behind it, that's another direction.

Also, unless you have a light shining directly into the box and from a low level i'd suggest ambient light in the box falling off before it reaches the roof, just looks a little to even to me. Other that that, very nicely done.

Just one other thing about the first image of the house. Perhaps you can see better if you have the original image used for the sky but it looks like the sun is above and behind the house? So maybe the front face should be in some shadow. It would make things look a lot more atmospheric. For such a cloudy sky the house looks too bright.

looks very nice, especially like the fetus one (I remember that from some time ago) The only part of it all that I dont really like is the pavement (sidewalk for any septics (Ask and I'll explain! ) it just looks too uniform and no pavement is that perfect in it's construction you know?

Apart from that well done, which unis are you sending off to?

Everything rocks man, might want to soften the normals on your box in the bear scene, other than that, it is very professional!

Yes, imperfect things are the hard part in any 3D app.

Doing the perfect, that's easy... it's the imperfect that's difficult.
