Most 3D stuff around is just shiny, but this is a beautiful piece, great work, I love it.
one day quake7 will look like this
Haha if only devs would stop ditching Carmack's genius ID engines because consoles can't properly run them : D
Very nice texturing!
Your materials are just spot on and amazing; the surfaces are perfectly textured, and very detailed. Indigo is a great render engine, as evident by this scene. The lighting is beautifully rich and realistic, and the atmosphere is dramatic. Very cool work.
thanks for the kind words
Oh those textures took specific trial and error in this particular scene. You should try out Indigo too, it features GPU accel for PT too and should be easy to get into for someone using Octane.
Yes, I may have to look at Indigo in the near future. Currently, I'm Alpha testing another unbiased engine for 3dsmax called Corona, and it's pretty impressive. Not quite ready for prime-time yet, as it's still in Alpha, but really really fast for unbiased CPU rendering, and features some impressive algorithms that produce very good results. I'll keep you posted.
