Think Inside & Outside the Box: the_grim's entry

Postby the_grim » 09.09.2011, 21:18

I got a little late start to the challenge due to real-life schedules, but we'll see what I can come up with during the last few days... :P

My concept is a desolate room in a school in Pripyat. I own a photograph book called "Zones of Exclusion" by Robert Polidori - it's a great source of inspiration. :)

So my room features lots of trash, dirt and broken furniture, coated with a layer of dust and atmospheric lighting. The final appearance depends on whether I have the time to model some unique props or not... :P

Solid proportions:

A moodboard of sorts:

Some custom textures:

Final submission!

i like the style and the quality of the textures itself, but you should definitely check the tilling.

Yeah the textures do tile quite badly, however I'm planning to spam lots of decals and blend textures to cover that instead of fixing the original textures. :P They're high-res and meant for close inspection so a single UVW space is 2m x 2m - making the tiling unnoticeable would take away some of the character of the textures themselves. ;)

Some more solids work and modeled windows. Blocked out some furniture as well, the Crysis 2 prop library is useless (I'll have to model a door of my own too...)

I'm gonna have to hurry tomorrow to be finished on time... :unsure:

I am in exactly the same situation. Hang in there, we can do it! :)

Environment probes do make quite a difference:

Kenturrac: The floor could be somewhat lighter in colour now that I think of it, and the texture still tiles noticeably - maybe next time when I have more than 3 days time... :P

Here's the normal map for the worn plaster:

That must be my favourite texture in the scene, POM makes it look delicious! :D Crazybump is priceless in creating good-looking normals - it fixes shading and detects the direction of light so you don't need to manually build a heightmap first... :)

Downloaded most of them from CGTextures, then made them tiling in Photoshop and created normal and specular maps. :)
