This is really coming well.
I took some close up pictures of wall and floor paints on the MV Coho, a ferry between the Olympic Peninsula and Victoria when we were returning from Basecamp last year. I used them in a scene I put it together to try out the SketchUp 8 they had given us at Basecamp. I never did really take it very far, but the scene can be viewed here if you would like to see how the materials worked.http://www.thearender.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=26869#p26869
I believe I may have added a little scaled procedural as well.
Anyway I have attached the paint jpegs if they are of any use to you .(sorry one is a .png to reduce file size a bit)

Just monkeying around....
Thanks Axeonalias, There will be more. Thanks lapx...yes I had better at least draw the waterline.
Dale the render you had started has lots of potential. Very nice model you put together. I haven't had time to play with the materials you attached but I do appreciate them very much.
You may remember this thread was started to help me produce some portfolio images. The setting is Parry Sound. It is easier for those who might need this service to relate to it if the surroundings are familiar.
I'll be getting around to the local builders, architects, realestate developers and just about anyone I can think of that can apply 3d to their work.
This week I set asside the boat to get at some of the town. I am building present architecture as well as proposed based on a published list of new site plans. The next images are of a proposed building in context. Some sketches, some NPR and some approaching real. Hope to get closer to PR as I go on.
This is how it has evolved so far.
Although there is much to do I have started to assemble the images that I have so far into a new webpage. This was my original goal. I'm hoping to have all this completed by April fools day... appropriate!
The front page is here.... http://www.ibuildmodels.com/ It is a very simple design. Your thoughts are always welcome.

Thanks Brian. Biased rendering . The 1280x720 animation rendered up in about an hour. The modeling...bridges, boats, buildings, terrain...etc..etc..etc...set-up, 80 hours. If nothing else it has kick-started spring with a couple of new clients. Both, after a review of the page. Your encouragement has been much appreciated!
Hey Kris, as ever, you where a good confidence boost as well. Thanks!! I hope to get the harbour together and get some good shots there to...or that was the plan but it looks like it might need to wait. This is the season for landscape architecture in Ontario as I am finding out.
Well done sir. Lumion I suspect?
I need to have a look at that.
Thanks Eric. After many months getting the unbiased renders to work (almost)a bias renderer is pretty cool to use. I like the workflow and the studio. There has been some thought put into it. In my opinion if you are a good modeler you have an advantage with this engine. You can easily turn your inventory into workable dae files even your google earth stuff, if you have it. You can wrap just about anything else you need around the models from within the studio. Once you are running it is very easy to pull in new freshly made colladas, pull them in, scale, move, tilt etc as you go. If their dev team can embrace interior/lighting..
I did a quick job last night that required filling in an area about 4000x4000' with conifs and decids some fruit. It was just plain fun. I fired off the trees as if with a semi-automatic. For the vegies alone it is well worth a try. I had to choke a little on the K but I have had no remorse and at the moment I am still occupied by the product.
