Explain a bit more about bump-mapping.

I found this image on the net. Not to sure who made it but it's amazing.

Anyway, i trying for a brick look similar to that.

go to material attributes. There is a section for loading or selecting a bump map. A bump map is basically a black and white image... when applied as part of a material the whiter (or blacker - I can't remember) part of the image appears to be "bumped out" a bit from the rest of the object in the render. The runes and texture on my sword are all bump maps - I'll post my map image there for you if you like.

Try having a bit of a fiddle around with making some bump maps and applying them to objects - you'll catch on pretty quickly.

just a note on the lack of updates;

My internet has been down. It'll be back up on wed (i'm currently on the college computer)

Also my scanner broke (well, the wire did - i'm borrowing one at the moment) and i'll post the concepts when the net's back on.

A few posts ago i mentioned a bunch of stuff that i'll be adding, well seeing as it's a deserted dungeon i have decided to keep it more simple. I have just about finished the scene, although i do have some questions about it. I'll ask them on wednesday when i post the images

Here is a nearly finished scene.

Just want to know…have over done the fire-stick things? I’ll post some other images with different fire lights….
