IRTC preview

(ScottishPig) #1

Yep. This month’s stills topic is “winter.” I am being inspired by a famous movie (That I keep rambling on and on about) called ‘Shackleton’. I am modelling the Endurance going through an icefield near the south pole. It looks pretty wintery to me.

…Will post updates as they are readily available. Comments more than welcome

Posted after the ice being ‘too sharp’

That is very good work! But where are snow particles coming from sky?
I think you will win with this.

isnt it a bit high in the water a trip that deep into the ice you would need supplys id figure it would be lower in the water

It is looking good. You have some solid modeling on the ship.


  • The ice looks strange, kinda like marble. Same for the sails, but maby that is supposed to be ripples in the sails.

  • The scene seems to be lit up too much considering how dark the sky is.

  • Those two halso on top of the masts, I assume they are lamps. You might get better results modeling some rudimentary lamps and throwing them up there. Maby make the glow yellow.

  • If you want to make it look really cold, throw in some fallings snow :slight_smile:

Your comments seem to do me most good. I am taking heed. You’re right, I could add some snow. As for the ice, I have moved it around a little since you posted, but nothing major. I think the sails look allright, but I could do some more with the water. It was in the chatrooms that someone said it looked too purple- since then I have changed the colour minutely. You shall all see my next post a little later on… in a few hours maybe- I also have a raytracer running out this pic as we (I) speak (type).
It should be going all right… time will tell - and I hope I win IRTC (As does everyone else)

i just had a thaught you could put some detail on the hull, like missing paint and fronst it would look great! :stuck_out_tongue:

There should be many more snow flakes than this. And there should be a gradient for it too.
Also, why do snow flakes look like poor halos?
