Another 1st place over at Eat3D!

I competed in another Eat3D Contest and was awarded another 1st place for my work.

This time around the contest challenged us to make a small scene with a budget of 10.000 triangles and a total texture space of 4096x4096. A requirement was using at least four different materials and material properties.

Although I was very busy these last months with other stuff, I was able to find some time in the last week of 2010 to work on my entry. I just love having these periods of going in overdrive and loose myself in a creative vibe just being "wired-in" like the programmers in the movie The Social Network. The end result can be seen in the pictures below.

As with the pillar, I tried to incorporate story elements into the scene setting out small hints in the environment to tell a story. There's always room for improvement but I think these storytelling elements really helped to sell the scene.

I'll try to give you some insight in my process for these kinds of things in one of the upcoming articles. Until then check out the great entries for the Eat3D Contest here.
