Roll up your sleeves… another 3D modeling challenge starts now!


#43

A rendering I decided not to use for my second entry.


#44

If you’re interested, I wouldn’t mind attempting a render for your model. Just send me the link and I can do a few for you. I’d enjoy it. Let me know. As long as if you win I get the mouse. Haha. I really want it.


#45

Sorry, but I haven’t found the time to flesh out the model, other events in my life have intervened.


#46

Alright :space_invader: :+1:


#47

Wait a minute… What if I don’t have a renderer to use? (Where I’ll have to use SketchUp’s native styles to finish my images?) Is that legal?


#48

This is a rendering challenge… no renderer means you might have to sit this one out!


#49

:disappointed_relieved:

I should probably go find a free trial somewhere… Any recommendations??


#50

Twilight Hobby is free and do-able in the short time you have left :wink:


#51

That was easier than I expected, but I’m going to need to put a lot of thought into which trains I want to put in my room. :grimacing:


#52

I believe Vray offers a 30 day trial as well. If you’re a student, you can even rent it at a discounted rate!


#53

So, twilight seems to be pretty good. This is what I have for my first real render ever. I think it’s pretty good for never having ever done a rendered image in my entire life…


One issue is that the brick texture won’t show up on the walls, but that is the least of my concerns…


#54

Wow! Nice render! Twilight also has antialiasing render settings to smooth out those shadows. :+1:
Render Preset > Advanced > Alternative_AA> choose any setting with ultra
The standard through ultra refers to the amount of antialiasing.

Try the pre-render checklist to solve the brick problem. https://www.twilightrender.com/index.php/tutoria-list/67-tutorials-v2/185-preflight-checklist-before-you-render

This is my Official Entry for the #insidewonderland Challenge.

The Slytherin Pad is a replica of the Slytherin Common House in Harry Potter, solely because I am a big fan of the movie series and because the sorting hat in a Harry Potter Website said i belong to the Slytherin House so–

Originally, I was to submit the entire model but I ended up only submitting only the living room because I thought it would be more safe given that the challenge required only ‘a room’, I built the entire model inside an old badminton court, techincally its inside a room. but I will only submit the Living Room :smiley:

So- I have the model in https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/79d057de-a53c-4c95-8849-4cded54a52de/SLYTHERIN-PAD-insidewonderland at 3dwarehouse but I took off the heavy stuff, cause Its too heavy for upload.

Finally…

Hope you like it, and I Hope I qualify for the challenge :smiley:

Awesome train. My dad used to work for Amtrak. Santa Fe before that. I used to LOVE taking the train across country or even up the coast. Especially the dining cars and observation decks.


#58

It isn’t really appropriate to play with others models during a competition.


#61

:sunglasses: it’s ok, i actally like it. i actually wanted to render in more sunlight, just had to time to re redo the renders :smile:


#62

Just to be clear.
So if I produced a rendering of your model that looked better, you wouldn’t mind that it influenced the judges and made them think less of your render?


#63

I would actually love it if you did that. Then I would ask you all your secrets that I need to learn. Please do if possible. I definitely will keep in mind what you said though. I guess I wasn’t thinking. I really can’t wait to see your renderings though. Thanks


#64

I’m not entering the competition, or rendering any other models.
I just wanted to point out why in a competition situation it is inappropriate as it can affect the outcome of the competition.
Under normal circumstances if someone posts a model then there is no reason not to display your version.
But not as part of any situation where a prize is up for grabs.

:+1: thanks again
