I finished the basic texture and changed the shape of the model a bit.

I now will be going for more details and differences in the textures and i might try a test render soon.

looking good so far.

Doublecheck the bump map settings on the brick wall. Looks like it might be backwards as the grout appears to be protruding from the wall.

nice job so far shadowspy

the brick is also looking a bit green and the textures on the frame look a bit stretched.

good choice for a model. should be fun beating up those cushions and adding some more dodgy stains.

Thank you arran!

The green look is because i made light a bit too greenie. It's not too bad on my iBook, but I haven't looked on my other PC yet so i don't know what it's like on other pc's...:headbang:

I'll tone it down

I never "destroyed" anything with modeling so this will be new for me

The split polygon tutorial in the "Free video section" might be something to look at if you have't allready.
Helped me out when I started my project.

I am trying to get the couch destroyed and abandoned-looking atm, but I don't know how. I have some more ripps and more dark spots (don't wanna know what happened there xD) but i don't have a clue what to do next.

It doesn't look old enough =/

If anybody has some suggestions, they would be very welcome

Thnx.
