Its encouraging to see that you guys are thinking very real world and not immediately going for something really crazy. The reference images look good there Lightpunk, look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Here's another very rough WIP. At the moment just trying out different bits of photoref for storefronts etc. At this stage still experimenting with layout haven't done much in terms of colour correction or integrating in neatly yet.
Thanks for the encouragement to keep going. Kind of made me feel like we're in a matte dept all on the same team.
I like your old west theme and also think it's interesting how you're starting with textures. I think I'll throw some building textures on mine later after I get off work and see what starts to happen.
thanks for the comment kris... looking forward to your next wip... its been a while wondering what the large building will turn into?, the buildings are hard to keep track of huh? I numbered mine from left to right but still get lost in my mega layers... dave
Thanks Dave! Yep, been away for a few days but back on the case now! The large building has been giving me trouble, its a big giant for the scale of the other buildings, trying to make it into a big saloon/hotel as we speak...
