Wedding Cake Anyone?


Video Turnarounds of the Wedding Cake Model

Modelling Continued

Over the past few days I've been focusing on the objects upon the dining table and wedding cake, below are my progression renders. I'm fairly happy with how the project's going, but I don't even want to think about how I'm going to UV Mapping all this lot!!!

The Old Furniture Shop

'The Old Furniture Shop' 
Modelling the Set Progression

The modelling process is truly well underway and looking like an 'old furniture shop'. Nothing is placed in the correct layout of the room, but the pieces of furniture are all modeled to the standard I need for my final animation. The majority of renders are in ambient occlusion and with the chair and cabinet I've experimented either with textures or lighting or both. I'm fairly happy with how the models are looking especially the table cloth - as I think it looks quite similar to the clay models I created. So in the next couple posts expect a HUGE  AMOUNT of modelling and a few more lighting experiments and hopefully a bit more structure in terms of object placement!!

Blocking Out The Room

Initial Sketches of the Room Plan

Blocking Out where key items are placed within the room - note that time pieces (clocks in bell jars, wall clocks etc) and tear jars will be scattered as seen necessary within the room. 

An Initial Lighting Plan - beam lighting and candle lit areas.

Quick Sketches - in the latter two images both lighting and tone have been taken into consideration.
