Here's a link to the original sized picture.....(http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aV10HE0S)

All of the modeling, texturing, and rendering (LightWorks) were done in trueSpace 7.6. I have compiled some of the texturing techniques that I have figured out how to do inside of trueSpace 7.6 that were used here. Maybe they can be helpful to some:)....

What a great scene. Mr.3d!

When I made the models I had spring in mind LOL, your snow is very well done. Nice details like the snow on the wheel and a good idea to use the Boolean subtraction to get a texture. Thanks for the info on how you did it, very useful.

THANKS muchly guys !!!:)

... Nice details, like the snow on the wheel.
I copied the wheel, raised it up, reshaped it a little, and applied my snow texture.

Oh..and rjeff...your check is in the mail !!!:D

Nice work. Just a few steps in the snow to give more life.

Marcel..... I tried to put some deer tracks coming out of the woods, but when I Boolean Subtracted all the little holes in the snow, I lost my lighting on the snow. So, I gave up and submitted it as is. I might try it again...I might not. I could easily paint them on in Paint Shop Pro, but that's not allowed !:)

and a bump map?

I agree with Marcel, bump maps are the way to go.. something like this maybe


Its just a grey scale image, white colours give height, dark depth, the foot was an image off google, I used the smug brush in PSP to drag the heel.. Its just a quicky, with a bit more effort it would look quite trippy :)

I might try it and see what happens. I kind of like the untouched snow look also. I'm trying to picture it in my head, because sometimes less is more ! Maybe I'll write my name in the yellow snow !:D
I'll probably create a new texture with added shoe prints or some type of critter's signature and see how it goes. I may try to Boolean Subtract some prints again ? I had my black crow on the roof at one time, but I felt less was more.

wheelbarrow appears too big near the tree or the tree is too small.

The snow should be a little brighter.

I like the light tint of blue on the snow in the shade, and I really don't see any major issue with the wheelbarrow size, compared to the tree (I want the wheelbarrow handles to rest around the tree). If you keep staring at it long enough, you might melt the icicles !!!:D

Just to let you know, I'm working on it right now, and I should have something to share within a couple hours.... snow lighter, tracks in snow, and slightly bigger tree.;):)

Progressing nicely. Couple of comments you may like for your 'to do list': there's snow on the barrow and the fence but nothing else, especially the roof where you'd most expect it. The shed texture(s) would benefit greatly from a bump map or, better still, roughing up the geometry a bit as it is extremely flat and looks more like wallpaper! (also noticed the side texture slopes down rather than being level).


Keep on truckin' !

Ok Witchy Pooh...I'm on it !:)
The hard part about 3D models is that you need to walk around them. So, I can't easily make these adjustments by just painting them on and hanging it on a wall...I need to be able to walk inside my fairytale ! So in this case, more modeling to create the needed effects you pointed out;). I actually wasn't planning to put much effort into this (as usual:D), but considering the feedback and the potential, I'm game ! I'm also not happy with the snow texture in front of the windowed shed area...it looks too messy and cluttered to me. I don't think I'm fully satisfied with the lighting from the sun either on the second one (maybe a bit overpowering ?).

just a thought based on your new white lie.


With the fence and the way the objects are arranged, there are a few strong lines in your picture that you could use to make a point of interest.

By turning the axe around which I did in your picture everything comes together more or less at the asterisk.

A bird or a squirrel on the tree and bingo! the eyes always stop at that point. Bob Ross in 3D :D

That's a good idea Georg. I had originally started off with the axe facing in that direction, but I didn't like how it crossed over the wheelbarrow. What I've done now is added a thermometer on the window as a focal point, and it works quite well. I do believe that I'm quite satisfied with the new image I've created...the Third "Little White Lie" this week !:D
When I first started out here, I had never done 3D. I got some good hints here and there from watching the MMC and picking out some key words used (like using the Caligari Material, Copy tool, and Mirror tool to name a few of my favorites !). So, I wanted to add that the first thing I wanted to do was reverse the shed model when I started this new scene....

I'm not sure how long this Forum will stay open, so I just wanted to share what I finally came up with:
THANKS for all the input to make this a better work !:)
