In the beginning.

In the beginning.

Postby Mike Amos » Sun May 09, 2021 1:42 am

...there was an attempt to make a Gibson, Les Paul guitar with custom finish. Not sure if the edge of the body should be gold as it is now or black. I tried to get a decent flamed maple but nothing so far, this is a reasonable alternative imho. The reverse face is in t' mirror.

I am looking to have a very small room section with very simple lighting and a guitar stand but aside from a curtain drape of some kind I cannot see much point in over dressing. Thoughts on the edge colour?

Thanks, I am heading towards a rippled curtain and a window with the only light coming from that, a mirror against the wall to catch the reverse image. Have to be a corner then..... It could have been worse, a penalty perhaps?

I think I am ready for the scene at this point. Any suggestions for the string texture? It's there, ish.

Current version looks pretty good to me but that is somewhat dependent on how close up up show the model. If you are going to include the guitar in a scene where it is kind of distant a more detailed material may complicate the render process to the point that it is not worth it. JMO

Thanks, yes the idea is to be pretty close in. Possibly DOF too. The chair will be a winged back Chesterfield armchair.

Thanks mate but, I hate it. The scale of the chair and the mirror make it look like something from Land of the giants or something. My next thought is a session room after the music is done. A full size Gibson is about 18 inches.

Hey Mike, I have one and measured it, it is a bit over 2 foot, avtually 2feet 1 inch. Why is it so small in the render?
(edited) Sorry bad conversion from metric. It is slightly over 3 foot (38 inches)

I went on line and looked for dimensions, the site I visited stated a little over 18 Inches. So much for factual evidence. Thanks for the correction, makes more sense that a violin would be that size to me.

Mike , Found a good dimensioned drawing of a 1950's Les Paul. Unfortunately my PDF to DWG converter is not working for some reason or would have posted a DWG for you. The best I can extrapolate off the PDF imported into SU
( the image is kind of blurry ) and in centimeters. It seems it is approximately 3' 3" overall length. If the proportions of the various bits are close you might be able to scale the whole thing in one go ?

Thanks, sounds great I have had a good look and rescaled X2 which is closer visually. I have a test render with a set of drums. I have a bass guitar and am looking at making a three or four piece setup. So far it's not bad but I am waiting on the finish and still trying to find some good full height curtains. I have had to reorganise since I found some corrupt folders. Par for the course when we have old computers. Anyhoo, will post test 3 when it finishes.

This is a rough outline, stuff to come, a bass and possibly a keyboard.

I am gradually getting the scene layout fixed in stone, a question for the musicians here, are wireless amps and speakers feasible yet?

Love the lighting and overall look of this one. Short critique.... Me being me I find the floor a little distracting in combination with the cowhide rug.... and the "old fart" that I am the drum kit would have to be one you would have seen Ringo behind back in the day . Actually a great job overall ! :thumb: :thumb:

Thanks, the drum kit is in the making, this just allows me to fold a scene into the space. The floor I quite liked initially but plain floorboards, as you say, will fit into the scene. STILL trying to find some decent drapes on my hdd but can I find them? Worse than the time I spent four hours looking for my glasses. Never going to find them when they are on my head am I? The clue was Sara rolling around laughing. I must be bluddy old.
