Just a quick idea, I'll probably go with it, but at a different angle.

We'll see

Well,
It's Sunday night and I've got nothing to show. You'd think weekends would be easy to spend time doing 3d, but seems like more things come up on the weekends.

Anyways, I got some stuff done, but didn't output it, so I'll post it tomorrow after work, 4:00pm or so. PST.

Yes, it was photoshop, 6 actually. M, yes, I used/use a wacom tablet it's the small one, 8x6 i believe. I use my mac for that kind of stuff

Can't wait to see what you got M

George

Cool, I was able to render a quick jpeg this morning before coming to work.

This is what I have so far, but I have some questions as to how to do some stuff. I'll upload a diagram in a bit

Disregard the textures on the rocks I have yet to adjust them.

Here's the image again, but with some arrows to where I have questions.

1. Just wondering how to do a sky background in maya? I used use Electric Image and they way I did it there, I used a Hemisphere shape and slapped a cloud texture on it. Anyone know of a free sky/clouds shader out there?

2. How would I go about deforming the ground a bit so it's not soo straight? displacement map?

3. If you refer to my quick sketch, I have a step bridge that I want to add. Is there a way to make one wood panel, attach it to a curve and then duplicate the panel along the curve?

Thanks,
George

1 - That's probably how I'd do it at first.

2 - Sculpt Surface tool might help with that if you've got a lot of geometry.

3 - There is a way, but I think it's faster and easier to just duplicate and curve snap it into place.

Oh curve snap sounds better then the lattice, or the nonlinear blend, not sure tho. Did you play around with that george?

Hey Vector,
I tried the non-linear bend, but was unsuccessful :\ So I went with the lattice. Not the best way to go I think, but it did the job somewhat.

I'll post an update in a few minutes.

George
