    PHOTOSHOP PROJECT! My progress...

    Hey all

    As some of you may know i like playing around with photoshop.

    I also like sci-fi (no jokes ). I watch Stargate, and decided to make my very own Stargate!!! From scratch! I have to make everything from scratch, the textures, EVERYTHING.

    Ive spent about 6 hours on it so far... its pretty d*mn hard. I have a few reference pictures. I am using no templates, no tutorials, no nothing!

    Heres a pic of my progress so far!



    I have a ton of textures to do, making the whole thing look more realistic, have to add a load more glowy things. Plus the bracket things they have on it. Plus a stand... and obviously the ripple puddle thing in the middle!



    What u think so far?

    it's what they (at least used to) use to make super-real scenes, where every ray of light is virtually traced on how/where it bounces. my friend was into it a long time ago but it would take like 15 hours for his POS pc to do one scene back in the day. here's a typical example from a random site:

    oh this one is dope- super realistic:

    Nah dont do that. Although i could probably recreate that quite easily, i use 3D Studio MAX which is a very clever program, that combined with photoshop.

    Looks pretty hard to raytrace!

    Yeah I heard him talk about 3dstudio and he said it was pretty cool and much faster than true ray tracing, which i doubt anyone really does any more.

    Feature films still render with ray-tracing methods.

    UPDATE!

    Right, well i started again, wanted to refine the textures and get it lookin all a bit more closer to the original version. This is my progress so far, i have redone the textures, added a few things, tons and tons of layers.

    Still have to add the actually puddle thingy, got a few hours to go then i should be finished!!!



    What do u think so far?

    yeah maybe put something solid (with a weird texture maybe) behind the water and try to make the water translucent so it gives it more depth. looks dope though.

    Id drop the water opacity layer down to like 80%. Not enough that you can tell its opacity is down, but if you really really look, you could tell. Know what i mean?
