    Opening the Dark Portal

    Cheers guys!

    so i'm back with something new!
    I was really interested in take a full scene start to finish lately, so when i saw the last CGSociety Hardcore Modelling challenge i couldnt be out, such inspiring theme!

    I'm really tired since i'm awake until now tweaking some photoshop layers and doing weird stuff on blender, so i'll be short and to the point, here's the renders:

    Managing the viewport is like playing Crysis on a smartphone, so yea, very funny

    I usually do a breakdown of my renders, this time as i'm reeaally tired of being awake for now, i will put a link to my W.I.P Thread on CGSociety, there you can see a detailed making of, hope you like!

    HCR MINI-Challenge #43: Magic Door - The Black Portal - World of Warcraft

    Anything, just ask and i'll do my best to answer, cheer for me in the competition! lets throw blender in CGSociety!

    Aw, why not:

    some other stuff, just for fun:

    a pseudo wireframe/AO from the final scene, this stuff is divided up in 7 layers, maybe seems a bit overkill, but, 90% is pure instanced geometry, and for the render, cycles is using around 1gb for everything

    don't know why i'm showing this but, yea, here is:

    we never know when someone will want to see your orthographic ambient occlusion renders

    So, it's it for now, don't forget to take a look at the w.i.p thread for more info!

    Amazing work mate, love the goth style in all yout renders. They may be a bit dark (pun intended), but that just makes them look more appealing.

    It looks like it would belong in Middle Earth (during a time frame well before the events of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings during the first war against Sauron, even though the link specifically mentions Warcraft).

    I concur that you have perhaps put a ton of work into this, how long did this take exactly?

    @The Sun, @axelredfield, @sundialsvc4, @Synagl0w, @CraftyCG, @ferrettank:

    Hey Ace, what if i told you my main inspiration for this was LotR? Even though the model being a Warcraft one
    Actually, my first idea for this challenge was to model Erebor, from the Hobbit, but i was concerned that maybe not will finish in time, so my Plan B was the Dark Portal, which i really like as well (maybe because resembles LotR mood a bit?)

    I took around 10 days to do it on my spare time, i would say half of them just testing different moods and thinking what path to choose, since doing things in a open thread is way different than in secret alone, you can't just quit everything and start another thing, and this is a bit scary, but also very motivational
    You can take a closer look on this in my W.I.P Thread on CGSociety, i dropped the link in the first post, there u can have a better idea about the progress

    Yeah! actually World of Warcraft is my favorite game until now so far!
    Because of them i became interested in environment art and doing handpainted stuff

    i've already did another render about them a long time ago: http://blenderartists.org/forum/show...ays&highlight=

    Pretty insane stuff! The energy in the portal could be more fancy, but the 3D stuff is just *****!!!

    WOW! This is freaking amazing. I like the style of your render as well as the fact, that the portal is built up though it is built aswell

    @Blenderwelder, @rattle-snake, @cgstrive, @Bernardo, @Schwalberich:

    Whoa, thanks very much, guys!
    Such a amazing feel when you see that all the work you put into something worth it!

    Took between 7 to 10 days, in my spare time;
    Rendering took around 30 hours, 4k @1024 samples in my junky workstation
    Actually almost the whole scene is being lit by indirect lighting, so yea D:

    Just wanted to see if i could burn my current pc to have a reasonable internal excuse for buying a new one

    Aw man, doing large scale landscapes is amazing, sculpting rocks, stacking meshs together to get a "organic feel", just lovely stuff to do, my only bottleneck was my PC, a poor core 2 duo with a old quadro with 256mb, in a good workstation i think you just should be crazy doing hi res meshes with less brutal normal map, scattering trees, grass and who knows some volumetric rendering as well! i strongly recommend to do this, can give you some nice moments with blender!

    Glad you liked, Cheers!
