To The Sea - New Images

To The Sea - New Images

Postby tuna1957 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 2:16 am

Have been wanting to experiment with "looking out to sea" type of scene. Put this dock model together. Posting three images, all the same render just handled different in post pro. No clue if any are worth a darn.... was good chance to try out some new things. Rendered in Twilight , post pro in Gimp.

:thumb: :thumb: I love this great scene and admire youre texturing which makes the whole thing very believable. A suggestion is to give the water in the front area some transparency, so that you can still see how the wooden pillars dive into it a short length at least ...

Hi,

The distant and middle distant water look great but the close water seems a bit opaque.

You might look for a better texture? I don't know how they do it but the 3DMax water looks pretty good.

It seems a composite of wave structure, simulated reflection and refraction with some sparkle thrown in. It's a surface treatment, not 3D surface but looks pretty convincing.

HornOxx , LA_RR_Architect , Thanks for your comments and input. Still messing about with this one. Twilight has some pretty good water procedurals "out of the box". Used the "murky water" one on the posted images. Didn't mess about with any of the procedural settings. Think the "choppiness" of the water surface has a lot to do with not seeing much of the dock poles below water level. The "murky water" setting is contributing to the opaque quality in the foreground I think. Ahh .... experimenting.... Reworking and tweaking settings, if I come up with something better I'll post it. Cheers :thumb: .

You should edit this slightly and enter it into the SketchUp competition

You might play with the size of the procedural bump if you can. It looks small to me, like the whole surface is somehow vibrating or a wrinkly polymeric material.

Well .... have played about with this a bit. Posting a couple of new images.

First image I changed the water procedural in Twilight from "murky water" to "ocean" and then played with the scale of the bump to reduce the "choppiness" of the water. Rotated the sunset HDRI to get the sun into view.

Second image swapped out the HDRI for a more middle of the day one. Also changed the water procedural to "ocean". Tried a little different scale adjustment than the sunset image. Also got a touch more "arty" on the post pro side.

Hope you enjoy them. Better than the first ... darned if I know but it was fun experimenting. I also really appreciated everyones comments and suggestions.

Very nice, I get a feeling of absolute peace from these. I do not have any criticisms, they just feel right to me.

Thanks pbacot.... assume "Bloodline" was some type of thriller movie.... I've spent a lot of time over the years in coastal areas was trying to capture the "feel" it creates in me. :thumb:

Bloodline is on NetFlix, a series about a family in the islands with some serious issues! Your latest post, second image is dreamy in the way the horizon just about disappears. The first one makes me want to grab a Corona and sit back for the sunset. I see the ICE sign on the dock house, hopefully there's some beer sold as well.

Whoa! The last image is almost perfect! There was something about the light in the first images and, as others pointed, the water was not right.

However, the last image has a far more ocean/sea atmosphere. Excellent!
