Smile Minority Report - Department of Precrime LOGO (+3d image)

Hi!

Here's my finished work of the "Department of Precrime - District of Columbia" Symbol used in Minority Report.

I think only the font is improvable, but I haven't found the right one anywhere. If you know the name of the right font used in the original logo, please tell me.

Regards

Markuz

Thanx for the compliment.
I guess I've worked on it about 6 hours or so...
I could write a short tutorial if anyone wants me to do, scince it isn't very complex.

Best Regards

I'd like a short tutorial of that, if you have the time to design one.

Ok, then I think I'll create a short Tut soon. Not today,becuse I'll have a test tomorrow. But to be able to follow the tut, you can prepare yourself by downloading the "create-tube" (not really nessesary) and "bevel-plus" mel script at highend3d.com...

Best Regards

Ah.. BTW: The Logo can be seen on the inside of the booklet of the (superb) Soundtrack from the movie.

The lightening can also be improved! Any suggestions?

Hi!

Well, I do not know, if you are aware of the look of the original Logo, but it is really all in one colour. But I used 2 shaders, one rough (e.g. background) and a glossy one (e.g. for the letters)...
Any other suggestions about the lightening probably?

Regards

Markuz

You could try to give it some kind of moody lighting. I haven't seen the movie so I don't know... How about some interesting reflections on the surface?

Oh, I haven't seen the Minority Report yet. I didnt know the logo was plain.

But I have a tip regarding the NURBS aspect of this model. I saw this right now. The tesselation should be set to double or more, as the rings in you model have a slightly distinctive look of being edgy. One can see edges.

Hi!

Thanx for the tipps. I'll set the tesslation of the wavy rings up a bit, they're really edgy.
Perhaps I'll also try to get some kind of reflectonmap...mh... I'll have to look...

Thanx,

markuz

um... there is still edges to be seen on the two outermost rings, but the inner-ring has improved!

In this small model dont be shy to push tesselation to 4, 6 or even 12+.

The tesselation setting must be set by each object/surface, I think. Please tell me if this is wrong guys.
