Chatsworth House

Postby tadema » Sun Feb 05, 2012 12:43 pm

Chatsworth House - Derbyshire.
Not sure what the monstrosity of a staircase/patio in image seven is all about, maybe they over estimated on the stone and decided to use it up!!! for me it spoils the whole building.
Altered the glass panes as suggested by Fabiorossi but still not happy with the results as it's reflecting vegetation, looks confusing even on the larger images.

Great work Tadema.
I also loved the Broadley's publication. (yes I bought it ;-))
The thing you don't really get into is the nice PS Post-work.
Again, in these pictures I love the hedges and grass-work.
Could you give some pointers here?

Thank you everyone.
Mike I'm glad it brought you a smile, it almost brought me to tears!
Alvis, the doors still there, poor viewing angle and bad PP caused it to hide.
jo-ke, thank you very much.
Eric, thanks If only I could use the scale tool and Artisan the way you do.
chedda, If Haddon Hall is in Vitruvius Britannicus I would be more than happy to draw her.
rvdruk, I hope Broadleys was of help to you. The image below is the raw render output, the hedges are PNG files as components patched up in PS with the clone stamp tool. If you visit nomer's site http://www.nomeradona.blogspot.com
he has some great tutorials, much better than I can explain.
Lee, I would love to see these old buildings when they were first constructed. I modeled her over 4 days, the main house a little over 2 and all the bits curtains/steps ect over the remaining. + 2 days texturing, renering and PS.

Wow John, again you amaze.

I have so many questions, I need either to pick your brains or contract work out to you....

Thanks for the tip. Can I ask where I can find the grass texture (with white flowers) you PS-ed in post?

Thank you all :oops:

Peter, we all know that feeling.

Hello Phil. I used a floor plan and front elevation plus photographs from the internet for reference.
The model is 12.1 MB, Edges 668912, Faces 293883. Although it was a full 360 degree shell, would have been much smaller had I modeled her for a render scene.
thanks John

Amazing!! Thanks for sharing your results with us, very lovely modeling. I agree with the comment about detailing "just enough," you convey the sense of the building very deftly. I'm amused by all the urns on the baluster, seems enough to make a chess set from them. :D

Hey, I'm currently writing a story set in a stately home modelled after Chatsworth house, and I'd love it if I could load your model in Sketchup viewer to use as drawing reference. Would you be able to send a download link to mekkatechthc@gmail.com?
