The exhibitionist's bathroom

Post by BbB » Thu May 15, 2008 8:42 am

This actually exists. I modelled it from a photo. Again, not much to say except I was keen to play with lots of vegetation. Most of the trees are modelled, though there is a jpg plane at the back to provide a bit of a backdrop.
All this glass and alpha leaves killed render times so I rendered at a lower res than usual. I picked the wrong white balance for the sunny one (and didn't save an igi) so it was colour-corrected in PShop. Also some minor adjustments to the interior one, which was lit with an HDRI. Only that one has diffraction aperture on. Hope you like them...

Fantastic. You really managed to make the vegetation convincing. All I can mention is that the closest parts of the stone texture are very flat.

Thanks a lot Olis.

It most definitely is. Waiting patiently for displacement ;-)

I understand :P It is my greatest wish as well, though making a displacement map for that stone texture would mean quite a lot of work.

So you modeled the trees right?

I think you should talk to Evermotion and become an in house modeler.
Me would buy them :)

Thanks for sharing and making me jealous.....again.

What was my net-speak acronym for you?
FAAUBbB!!! = Freaking awesome as usual, BbB.

Good God! Lay off the coffee and try sleeping for a change... :shock: :P

I love the second pic BbB, it has a very nice outdoors feel to it.

Totally agree with Ono... the second is astonishing. Vegetation materials are great, as long as the caustics on the ceiling.


Thanks for sharing, R.

I'm going to use this scene as a test for the shift lens, faster alpha map render, and displacement when the new features come out.

kwistenbiebel
God no, I didn't model the trees, and using the Ivy generator doesn't count as modeling. While we're on this, I didn't model the butterfly stool either. The rest was all done in Blender. (I'm taking a close look at XFrog for future trees, but I must say the latest tree package from evermotion looks gorgeous. I just wish they were cheaper.)

Hi mate. If you mean the water, no it doesn't have bump. It's a volume with the top surface displaced using a very simple water displacement map. It doesn't even have a lot of subdivision, something like 300,000 polys.

Phr0stByte
Thanks man. Sleeping? Naaaaaaaaah.

aleksandera
Haven't been messing with ZB for a while. I might do soon, though, so that you like me again ;-)

OnoSendai
Thanks master. As I said, this should be a good test for your alpha leave improvement.

rgigante
I was pretty lucky there. The caustics just showed up, as they should - which is the kind of thing that makes me love Indigo so much. I was lucky for the vegetation too as it just happened to blend well with the jpg plane at the back. Doing such things can look unnatural if the plane and the leave textures are not exactly in the same colour space.

Cool. By far the finest piece of vegetation rendered with indigo I've seen. It gives a very nice and soft mood to your shot. Btw what material did you use for the leaves ? A mix of diffuse transmitter and phong ?
I did a few tests myself, but it's hard to find some decent tree models, and I hardly could master free softwares like nplant, arbaro and such.

Hi Doc. Yes, diffuse trans+phong it is.
If you're patient, you can find some pretty decent tree models here http://archidom.net/ddd/mod_tree7.htm (some need some work). The best free models by far are here http://graphics.uni-konstanz.de/plantslib/. I would just go there and download everything. But be careful, some of them are really heavy.

And tell me, what happened to your lakeside villa?

Thanks for the infos. Well, my villa... has be postponed ! Not enough time. But now I want to finish it and put trees everywhere !
Btw sorry I didn't answer sooner, I didn't want to pollute Ono's thread.

No worries. Try to finish it. It looked so promising.
