The One Ring by Nieuwus The One Ring by Nieuwus
I made this in a couple of hours when i was bored and didn't know what to make.
Since i never made anything of Lord of the Rings, and i'm a huge fan, i decided to make the ring as a test with texturing and lighting.
I guess the render is ok, but i tried to achieve a realistic look, and i think it's not quite there yet.
Anyway, it looks nice.

UPDATE 25-03-'14: Since i learned a lot during the last year i decided to change the lighting and textures of the whole scene.

Please leave a comment, i'd like to know what everyone thinks of it, or if you have any tips please let me know :)

Made in Cinema 4D
Render time: 06.50.04
Project time: ± 20 hours

nice work. 

just one thing: the links in the chain look a bit to "straight" and regular to me. i guess this need a little bit more randomness in position and rotation. it looks like all the links rotate (more or less) exactly 90 degrees. hope u know what i mean.

Thanks, you you're absolutely right! i totally forgot that and after i rendered it it was too late xD so i guess i have to fix that.
This is already the third version i uploaded, every time with minor changes in them so the chain is for the fourth version :P
Thanks for the sharp eye!

Super! Mag ik vragen hoe je die tekst in de ring zo mooi hebt gekregen?
Reply
:iconnieuwus:
Nieuwus Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
Bedankt! ja, dat was eigenlijk redelijk simpel, eerst de tekst gemaakt in photoshop (ingescanned uit het boek en toen bewerkt), toen een normal map en displacement map van gemaakt.
De originele PNG in het alpha kanaal gezet en daarna een beetje ge'tweaked in het glow en luminance kanaal :)

This is a beautiful render! Might have looked a little more realistic if you had darker shadows?

Thank you, yeah you're totally right, i already changed the main file and i hope this one looks better.
Currently working on an update again because i thought the gold texture didn't look real enough, anyway
thanks for the feedback! :D

I know this is just a test, and it looks pretty good, but I suggest you add some DoF to it, as it's looking very flat right now.  I really think that you should also add some diffusive textures to the map, the ring, and the chain.  As I said before, it's looking good right now too. :D

:iconnieuwus:
Nieuwus Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2013
Hi thanks for the compliment and for the feedback!
I tried adding DoF to the scene but since i never worked with that before i decided to leave that out for now, but i'll make sure to add a new one in a couple of days with all the feedback i gathered here.
Don't really know what diffusive textures are exactly, are those some sort of noise or pattern maps?

anyway thanks again :)

Yeah, they consist of noise mostly to give ordinary mat's a sort of grungy look. :P

Yeah, i though it was something like that, i changed the main file so i hope this one is better :)

Hey thanks, ben nog niet helemaal tevreden met deze maar gek genoeg vind iedereen hem geweldig! 'K ga inderdaad wel goed de laatste tijd, ben veel aan t oefenen.
Hoe is het met jouw 3D carriere, je zat toch op Quantm in A'dam?

:iconizaspringintveld:
IzaSpringintveld Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yesss. Ik ga binnenkort ook t een en ander posten hier op D. Ik moet over 2 weken 3 projecten inleveren. Dat zijn de eerste drie 3D projecten van t eerste blok van dit schooljaar. Als ik er tevreden genoeg over ben dan post ik wel wat renders haha.
Ik studeer aan het SAE institute, Qantm heette het voorheen maar zo wordt t niet meer genoemd. Heb t er waanzinnig naar m'n zin. Tempo ligt  hoog maar tis heel goed te doen als je maar gemotiveert bent en feel ervoor hebt.

Ah cool ben benieuwd hoe dat is gegaan, als je in 3D net zo goed bent als in je 2D werk zal dat vast wel goed zitten !
Ja je hebt inderdaad gelijk, was vergeten dat het nu SAE heette.
Ook wel lekker dat het tempo hoog ligt, er zit ontzettend veel in zo'n 3D programma dus het is wel lekker als je veel kan leren in een korte tijd.
Hoeveel jaar duurt die opleiding eigenlijk?

Sorry voor de late reply overigens ^^
Ciao!

Don't worry about it! :)
Het duurt 1 jaar om je diploma degree te halen en dan kan je nog het optionele 2e jaar doen om je bachelor te krijgen.
Die bachelor is puur voor als je je eigen bedrijf wilt opzetten. Ik ben al 'n beetje aan het opkomen als freelancer en ik hoef geen zzp-er te worden dus ik ga denk het tweede jaar niet doen. 

3D gaat nog lang niet zo goed als m'n 2D - maar waar heb je t dan over. Ik doe al bijna 4 jaar 2D en nog geen jaar 3D. Ik wil er natuurlijk net zo goed in worden. T lijkt me ook waanzinnig om texture artist te worden, kan ik 2D combineren met 3D. 

Laterss :) !

This is beautifully done! The only thing that I could suggest, is perhaps adjusting the metal shader on
the necklace, to make it a shinier silver colour? And the same to the Ring, with a richer golder colour.
To me, the metallic shaders look a little lackluster. But that does not take away from an amazing modelling
job you've done here! :clap:

Thanks a lot, and i know what you mean, i'm not satisfied with the metal look as well so i will work on that for sure!
