I understand, Spain is a beautiful land, nice climat, nice people... In Moldova, the situation was not the same, I suppose. Yes, the job of "image maker" is fascinating, and you have to be interested on a lot of things, photo, materials, optical, plants and more and more... And the result of your work is tangible and often gives you satisfaction (if not, you have to ask for much money ;o)) nXting is so exiting!
Hi, Nina, I don't know if spain is the good place to find a job in this time of crisis. I'm very happy to see what you have to show, with such a little time of nXt learning. I think you have to keep on, you will soon have a level that will emphasize your sensibility. Your sensibility is the crucial thing to produce good pictures, with a renderer like nXt, which save your time with the top quality. The time saved can be used to work on the picture in other directions (gimp, pshop).
I've seen something in your job that you have to correct: the tiling of your textures. Textures are, for me, the parameter the most important. I spend long hours to make some of them, with always a good size, to avoid tiling effect. Xcuse my bad english. One question, why did you choose Spain? And how long?
Around 10 years in this graphic world, and what I find as the better, for the price and productivity, is nXt. You are new in this world, but I feel that with your talent, and sensibility, you will make great things. Do you want to make pictures for construction, or other domain? I'd like to see other images that you did...
Thanks, Nina, I was architecture student till the 5th year, but I find more pleasure in image construction as in building construction. In architecture, conception is a good thing, but they are so many bad things in the architecte job, that can't hold on... You learn 3ds max? do you prefer to use it for modeling as autocad? I used it sometime, but makes me spend too much time... In fact, the better soft, is the soft that you know very well... Your pictures are good to, I'd like to see more of yours...
"For sky background picture try to use much larger bitmap, controlling also its colour tone to match the rendering. I am using almost 100% transparency for background (alpha channel in resulting image) in order to be able to place bitmap in GIMP.…"
Sky background needs change.
ground needs a better texture
the red tree in the front could be cutout better than the procedural nXt tree.
windows glass material needs work, doesn't look like glass
sidewalk material pattern…"
"Thanks for the response....I had found an old lisp called 3DText, but couldn't get it to work.
Ended up modeling the text in SkecthUp using an extension called Shape Bender. Easy to use and did what I wanted. Imported into ACAD. Done. ACAD…"
More of an ACAD question...Have exploded, extruded and rotated my text to be used for signage...that occurs on a curved wall.All the letters are individual solids.Any quick-n-easy way to get the letters repositioned/rotated along the curve of the wall? I've tried using array (polar and path) and align....failed at each.Trying to avoid having to do each letter individually, as there will be other options on case and size that I have to do.Images attached....Thanks for any help,JohnSee More
