JiouFen - Revision



-------
Spring 09
Maya 8.0
Photoshop CS3
Crazy Bump
-------
Here is a revision of my latest environment layout and modeling. I also refined my demo reel for this environment.
In case people didn't notice this, I didn't texture the building in the background of the previous model. Right now this looks better and more polished.
Enjoy the revision.

After 3 months of work, this one is finally done. I'm really happy with the render I have right now, even though there are some parts still need to be improved.
I think I modeled the details too much, and the resolution on some textures might be too high(1024*1024, is it too high-.-?). My computer couldn't render the whole scene with textured models. It kept crashing and crashing until I found a way to render this 3d scene. I have to figure out a way to deal with this problem...
But~! It's okay~!
I'M DONE~!!!
I'M SO GLAD THAT I'M DONE~!!!
I'M VERY VERY VERY HAPPY NOW~!!!

Maya 8.0

This is it. I finally decided to end the modeling part of this project, because I really need to get to uv unwrapping, and texturing.
This piece is my project for one of my Special Studies Class this semester, based on a place in Taiwan, which is also a refrence environment of a famous Japaness Anime "Spirited Away."
Before the semester begins, I already know what I'm going to model for this class, which is a model that involves my culture. I kind of stay away from making something sci-fi, that's what I was doing when I first know how to model stuff in Maya.(which is a year ago?)
Anyways, I hope it will look amazing once I finish texturing and lighting .
Hope you can enjoy the details I put in there.
