Pedestal (Tutorial p.2 and update below)

I’m currently working on something for a small scene. This is what I’ve got so far. My thought is to lay a marble top on so that I can lay display or something on it. But it was so fun to model so I decided to do it quite detailed

btw pedestal

Is there a tut I can get to make something like that … I am looking depspertaly for one . I need it for my next scene .

A tutorial of some kind would be awesome. I’ve always wondered about the technique.

:o you mean you wan’t me to do a tut. That I never thought I’d hear. What do wan’t it on, the screw thing or the whole thing?

whole thing if poss
:stuck_out_tongue:

also if u look at the image, the far right has black bits, have u tried ctrl+n yet? should help.

Bensloth: Thats because I haven’t fixed the hole on that pic. What u see is the inside of the swirly thing

EDIT:

Oh, and I’ll start on a tut perhaps at the end of this week. A little swamped att school. Nothing fancy, but I’ll se what I can do.

Really nice modelling.
Hm, I’m not sure but maybe you should remove that horizontal line between the 2 spirals, to see if it looks better or not.

That would look great as a pedestal, but that could also look great in a scene such as a greek temple or something like that. :slight_smile:

The thing looks amazing and it would be complimented by grass nicely ! If the it is not too much trouble and you make a tut I can tell many people are gonna be happy . :slight_smile:

Great Modeling BTW … and what are you gonna use it for ?

The whole thing if possible, that’s an awesome model. I’d love to do a pantheon sometime. That’s one the models I’ve tried to do many times over my course of blender, never been able to do it.

thats k :wink:

duskblue: Thanx man. The line is intentional, I put it there because imo it didn’t look that good without it though I see where you’re coming from. I wanted the line to transfer onto the roll.

Kashoki: Thanx, the grass idea is much better then what I had in mind. I was thinking on setting it in a middle of a large room with some reflecting stone floor. Like your idea better and I’m running with it if I can steal it.

Dittohead: I’m starting on the tut now. I don’t expect it to take that long so if I’m not interrupted at home it should be finished sometime today (swedish time ^_^)

I’ll get going right away
