Hi everyone,

It's my first personal project in 3d. I know the 3d since 6 months.
I used maya 7 and photoshop.

Critic welcome! :lol:

Thx

I see you tried to add some breakup with cracks but the brick seems to clean. Very strong sense of lighting though, that is excellent. The rails seem fine at a distance but up close are to unrealistic (remember trains ride over, break on, and start off the tracks everyday). Id say overall a good piece with a few things to addresed for realism try posting in the www.cgtalk.com (http://www.cgtalk.com) forums they would love to see this quality of work.

I really got to get a 3d application!! So poor. This looks great, if a little surgicly clean. I suppose most of the challenge is gritting up everything in these programs. Well done!

Dude 3d apps are free in most cases for learning purposes. Maya has Maya Personal Learning Edition, 3ds max has Gmax though that is more for game stuff, Softimage has a learning version of XSI I think. Blender is a free animation program that I started with. It was designed to give big animation effects with free software and they are making a name for themselves in the 3d world. I recommend Maya PLE and the book Learning Maya 7, its a little daunting at first but you got me spec I got a BA in Animation and we focused on maya.

Maybe if I help you with Maya, you can help me digital painting and sketching?

Looks fantastic... The only things that looks a little odd are the tracks them selves and that everything is perhaps a little too clean.

Kinda reminds me of a level from Hitman 2

Yea this image is awesome! I just don't know how you can do something like this after just 6 months with Maya!! I have been trying to use Maya for abut 2 years now (with no teaching) and I can't do a thing!
Is it like Photoshop where if you just use it and experiment you will get better??

Anyway, beautiful image. I agree about it being a bit too sterile. Maybe some litter and grafitti would help - those two are must have items at a train station. Great work.

Can I also ask, how much of this was done in Maya, and how much in PS?

Thanks
Nick

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. I took the liberty to copy this to PS and did some desaturation and used curves to make the image darker and it worked better for me, but hey that's my personal taste.

Again thanks for sharing,

Excellent work!
Did you model all of this from your head? or did you use refernece pictures... or anything like that?

I use cinema 4d. After trying out maya 6.... too complicated...
For matte painters.... I believe cinema 4d is enough. It's user friendly... not too complicated and yealds excellent results...
But... I envy your modeling skills...
Did you also texture in maya? or is that photoshop work?
