well im back again with another thread, this will get updated everyday untill i have modelled every bit of furniture ever made
anyone who has been following my cycles thread will know that my beastly Rig got frazzled in a power surge, so im sticking to less intensive modells for my mid range computer and ill save all the huge models till i get my workstation back from the tech monkeys.
starting off, a collection of furniture i have modelled over the past week (you will find the real life versions of these by typing in ‘modern furniture’ into google images)
Awesome models. I especially love the lamp scene, both the models and scene composition are very cool.
Looking good. Sux on the power-surge.
for what it’s worth, I think this stuff is more ‘contemporary’ and less ‘modern’. Ironically, modern furniture actually dates back to the 50s-70s.
thanks for all the great comments guys
@derek, i remember seeing your thread, it was really impressive, would be awesome to see them all redone in cycles oh that sucks, at least the psu’s dont cost too much to replace the power surge got my PSU (£160) and my CPU (£200) but luckily for me my warranty is paying for those to be replaced
@Ben, thanks alot dude, its great to hear feedback that good xD
@Writer block, thanks man, yeah it does but at least i have a backup computer
@kemmler, that interesting, i think i’ll change the name of this thread to contempory furniture then, cheers
right ive spent the morning getting linux installed on this computer (i cant put up with windows render times anymore lol)
but here are some renders i did yesterday anyway
well i saw this bed and had to model it, took a long time as you can see the quilt and pillows are sculpted alot to give them a realistic as possible look
added some drawers and increased the dof
Great thread, lots of good stuff here. I particularly like the lamp and the last sofa in the previous post! How much do the rendertimes differ on Linux compared ti windows?
Great work bizla :RocknRoll:
love the sectional couches above, would live well in my living room
Looking forward to more
Sounds like there is time to save if I was to switch I’ve actually wanted to convert for quite some time, I assume Cycles + gpu is working on Linux?
i cant test it atm unfortunately because both my workstation and gaming pc are AMD powered, but cycles and blender fully support linux (its open source just like them) i would recommend getting it, ubuntu 11.10 is what i use on both computers, my gaming one has gnome (default desktop) its clean and easy to manage all emails office work and browing etc, on the other computer i have installed KDE which is perfect for work because its very fast and well laid out (plus super easy to install)
latest model is here too
Thanks for the info, I’ll have a look at it. I’ve tried Ubuntu once before but I remember that I struggled with the most basic things. But that was a couple of years ago, surley things must have changed. But as many other things it’s a question of habit, I don’t use Windows because it’s the best OS out there, I use it because i’m used to it!
i know exactly what you mean, i tried ubuntu a couple of years ago and absolutely hated it, but since then (that was version 9 i think) it has had some major overhauls and its now the only operating system i recommend to people who do alot of computer work, although i am a fan of windows, i have win 7 on both my computers (dual boot with linux) but now that i have got used to how linux does things i hate the fact the i have to go into windows to play my games lol.
getting a couple more done today, heres the first (only took about an hour)
and a couple more here
i wasnt happy with how this sofa turned out so i decided to model a shelfing unit, came out perfect if i do say so myself
pretty nice rendering with cycles
a little bit better then normal blender !LOL
what are you going to do with all these?
i have come round to really like cycles now, and now when i look at my latest one vs BI renders the difference is huge, these look so realistic in comparrison.
these are all going up for sale, aswell as going in a house in going to design (a highly detailed house lol)
they will also be ready to use as props for when i start learning unity
sorry i forgot
what you do with this unity thing
you’ll get a nice lib of furnitures
but unusable in middle ages !LOL
