Default August Challenge - Nataliia - Noobie

Well, I'm going to give this a try.

Idea is a medieval style wizard's lab with all the gadgets and gizmos one would have: bits of critters, vials, things that go *ping*.

Inspiration will come from my many years of D&D, so from the book "The College of Wizardry" here is what I'm going for:

Every good lab must have a table of beakers, so...here's my first set of beakers and a couple of hurricane lamps. I will light it better later, of course

Nice pair o' beakers you got there Nat

Im thinking the table legs might be a bit thick? Seems a waste of wood to use a whole tree truck

icky - Point taken on the legs, it was a quick job to have something to put the beakers on, they may be more decorative later, but will definitely put them on a diet.

howard - yeah, after learning the revolve tool, everything but the darn table in that pic is revolved made beakers so much easier.

Ah, the glass. I have ckyuk to thank for his lovely advice in the Revolve Scene thread (http://forums.simplymaya.com/showthr...&threadid=7209). I just changed the colours when I wanted something other than clear and then fiddled with it. Timely bit of advice there and very welcome

OK, between cleaning and packing to get ready to move next week, I've managed to accomplish a little bit more. Lighting, floor & wall are just temp. Still much much to be done
