Here is the third and probably last series of my “Back inside” project. I added the bath room, so this post is dedicated to this room. I whould like to post some of the images from this project on CGTALK and I will probably start a poll to let you choose which images to publish, I’ll come later on with that.
Modelled with Blender
Rendered with Indigo 1.09
Some postpro with Neatimage and Gimp
Rendering time varies from about 20h for images lit with sun light to about 40h for images lit with mesh lights on a core 2 duo 3.2 Gh.
Yep bathtub is thin and it was thicker at first but I thought that a thinner one was better to keep a light scene.
The resolution is higher but I reduced it for the publication, portrait format images are in 900x1200, square images are in 1024x1024 or 1200x1200.
The floor is made with a tile texture I got on a 3D TotalTexture CD, what makes the difference is just the fact that it is supplied with bump and spec maps. Spec map really improves the result when light is reflected.
I’m not exactely hooked on indigo, if you have seen my past works, I’m experiencing the various renderers available for Blender, BI, Yafray, Yaf(a)ray and now Indigo. The photorealistic results I get with Indigo are indeed fascinating and from this point of view, it is the one providing the best results. I think that each renderer has its purpose and depending of the result you would like to achieve, one may be more suitable then another. For now, I’m much more concerned by photoreal results. I’m more and more appealed by animation and imo BI is the best choice as it has a great image quality/render time ratio.
You know what… they look beautiful, but why the crappy camera angles? Personally I’m a little bit tired of screwy camera work… just straight horizontal/vertical works quite nice really (feel free to disagree completely).
@macouno: Yep, now that I look at all the images together I must admit that there are too many tilted views.
@BbB: I didn’t understood immediately what you were talking about , so I scrolled back to the image and I had to laugh for about 5 min :D. So it’s just a vase and not what I think you are thinking about ;). Does anybody else see something else then a vase ? Of course I mean a rocket or a candle or an hair dryer or … what else ?
