    Ok, all the etching is done, most of the modelling is done...I'm going to open it up a little and then do a large render while I go out to dinner...then I'll probably spend tomorrow working on the scene and whatnot like lighting, environment, etc.

    My latitude etching didn't render with all the stuff in it for some reason so i fixed it but its not in this render...this render took 45 minutes, because its bigger and the samples are higher...and I'm done for the night. Tomorrow I'll be travelling to orlando for the week...so I'll be limited.

    Incredible as always Robbie!! That is a beautiful piece.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    WOW!
    That is incredible.

    But what I find more incredible is that you guys have this little community that can celebrate amazing work like that and still praise a novice for his hand-drawn map on graph paper.

    This really is a special place, as I've learned since coming here. [Going on Day 2 as a member...]

    Where has this place been all my life?

    It helps that online, no-one can see you going green with envy.

    Whats even more beautiful is that I've seen people come here and not be able to draw even an x-marks-the-spot map properly and several weeks later turn around and garner a lot of praise for a very nicely done map.

    What saddens me though is that in my experimentign with 3d stuff...I keep creating map related art, but not actual maps...I may have to suck it up and make some more maps..I haven't been GMing lately, so I haven't been mapping.

    I didn't get to work on this much this past week...was in Orlando for business...hence my lack of participation lately

    This doesn't look too much different except for the fact that its using a different environment map...I'm using a bightened up version of grace cathedral for both global lighting and reflection mapping. I'm using global illumination from a skylight HDR and Final Gather for accuracy. Its a little darker than the Kansas City environment map, but brings out some of the details a little better at the cost of other details...

    I also made a separate brass shader with a smaller rounded edges shader to account for the smaller details, such as the knurling on the knurled knobs, and the screws....
