@ EscapeArtist: LOL...you're right, Sang should wear a wizard's cloak. I just used it for scale as I did not have the time to bring in my own characters.

@ d12dozr: Thanks, Marcus. I am glad you like it.

@ michaliszissiou: No worries, Michalis. Thanks for your comment.

@ liam887: I use Vray for Sketchup. Vray is probably one of the best rendering engines out there.

@ orgel: Merci, Jean-Pierre. I just checked your website. You do have some quite interesting projects.

Here are some more renders of the interiors of that temple. These are work in progress.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by.

Hi Liam,

Good find. I will certainly try to do something if time allows. I've been quite busy the past couple months.

After finishing the car models for the Syd Mead/Nvidia competition, I have been working on some personal projects like the interior of that temple. It happens that there is a Vray for Sketchup contest ending September 30. I will enter a couple of renders.

I am almost done with this one but still have stuff to fix.




Simultaneously, I am working on another personal project that I might enter for the Vray contest too.

Here are some WIP.








I have started to put textures. Will post some more images soon.

I really want to do the EVE contest. The prizes are really sweet! :thumb:

I don't know how I will survive the month of September...I might die due lack of sleep. LOL :knockout:

Good luck to you, Liam.

Have a great day!

Thanks for your comments, Michalis, Jarynzlesa, Oliver, Liam, Roberto, and Jhuman.

@ davesec: yes, I am using Vray. Tutorials?...honestly, I am a beginner at Vray. I am just using simple lights and changing their colors and intensity. It's a trial and error by making tons of renders till i get the result i want. It's quite time consuming.

If you want to learn Vray, I would suggest to visit the Vray forum:
http://forum.asgvis.com/index.php?board=9.0

Here's the latest WIP.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone,

@ alvis: thanks for your comments.

@ Jacques/silver shadow: Coming from you, it's quite a compliment. I am glad you like my work. You too have some really nice models and great renders (Titanic, helicopter, architecture stuff).
These are personal projects, but they are similar to the things I do at work that are for the game/movie industries. The older sketchup projects were done for the MMO game Gods and Heroes back in 2006/2007.
I wish I can post some of my current projects from my current company http://www.trionworlds.com/en/someday.

@ dolphus: Thank you, Sir. Welcome back to the gallery forum.

@ pilou: bonjour et merci pour le link de Versailles. It is quite a fantastic piece of architecture. I have been there a long time ago. So much memory. Thanks for sharing.

Ok, so here are the latest renders from last week. I added some more details, fixed the ceiling, replaces the sculptures with statues.









I have to stop working on both the interior temple and this interior hallway for the next few weeks as I have started a new model for the EVE Online -Create a Starship contest (http://news.deviantart.com/article/128272/. Thanks Liam for letting me know. More sleepless nights ahead but it will be worth it. The prizes are so sweet.

If you want to see what I have so far, click here: http://forums.sketchucation.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=27030

Thank you and have a wonderful day :enlight:

LOL, thanks for your comment, Roberto. I don't know if I can call myself a master. You do have some cool stuff too and there are a bunch of sketchup users in this forums who have terrific Sketchup modeling skills and could therefore be Masters of Sketchup. I think everyone can model the way I do. It's just a matter of patience and practice, practice and practice.

I will keep on working on the fantasy architecture after I finish the EVE contest that is due in 3 weeks. http://news.deviantart.com/article/128272/

Sharing some old student projects.

The fortress was modeled in Sketchup, exported into Maya for texturing and rendering.

Have a nice day,

Excellent work ken, always :thumb:

Exported, but how? And a clean geometry! You don't use a continuous push-pull, you prefer groups. This is good. Clean subdivisions, how?

Thank you, Michalis. I am not so sure about what you are asking. What I did was exporting my model as Obj from Sketchup and importing it into Maya.

Ok, since I am done with the Starship, I have started a few new things.





Have a nice one,
