thank you all for replying, i’m quite flattered
except the nobs for volume and such dont have any words or letter saying which is which and what way to turn em.
the words are on there, but yes, they lack the numbers. At that time I wasn’t confident in texturing so I just put a text object on each knob.
except the head it looks just like one brown mat… Mostlikely its the same as the body so perhaps its the lighting/camera angle.
yes, you’re correct. I did another render though with different lighting and it didn’t turn out better, so I stopped trying.
(Geez it was a university assingment to write a manual on how to string a guitar… that was like the first thing my music/guitar teacher got me to do and I was 13 (now 14)
actually it was for a design class, and it was I who picked the topic. we had to illustrate a task which required 5-7 steps of action, so I figured stringing a guitar would be neat. some other students picked opening a bottle of wine or a bra respectively.
i like i like. but 2 hours!!! really if your ray tracing osa only needs to be at about 8 and youve got no scene so ao doesn’t need to be at full
a pic like that should take 30 mins max to render. play about a bit i’m sure you’ll agree you can cut the render time a lot without sacrifising quality
Oh, didn’t know about the osa thing, I guess that could’ve reduced the rendering time by half, right?
I think the other time-hog is that I literally maxed out the tesselation for the body and pick-guard bezier curve, and the tuning knobs’ subsurfs. well, next time I’ll try to keep it more cpu-friendly, I promise.
Nice guitar! I’m trying to do one myself, but I’m having some problems with the bridge, so if you’ve got some tips or some good reference images you want to share I would appriciate it very much.
BTW were’s tho plug-in (I belive it’s called so) shouldn’t it be on the front of the guitar?
sure, if you want I can share the .blend, but beware, it’s quite messy. And yeah, there’s no jack, since it’s all digital (there’s a bluetooth module inside (or so they say)) :D.
No, actually I couldn’t figure out a good looking way to cut a hole into the body, since it is just a bevelled (is that the word?) bezier-curve. That’s also why there are no carvings for the palm and belly, if you know what I mean, since t’s impossible to thin out a curve at certain points, it seems.
