Well. This is the progress of Alexander's Throne Room.

Not much, so far, but hopefully it'll become sweet.

Very pretty!

It almost looks like the light outside is VERY close to the window though. Did you want that?  Looks awesome, I'm just not sure if that's what you wanted.

What do you mean by artificial light?  You mean, not done in the CG proggy?

Argh!  I know very little in the way of CG.  Like, very little meaning 'Absolutely NOTHING'.  Cheesy

No, like, it's not supposed to be the sun or the moon or something.

There's supposedly a bright "halogen light" or something behind it.

That is, under the assumption that it's all real. Cheesy

Oh it looks nice Ian...I like that its asymmetrical, nice and rustic.

If you get a chance...I'd like to see how the colors of the throne and whatnot play with the background, maybe just throw a keyed version of it ontop of there - nothing final of course. Great work so far...

Sweet. So you think this works? I forgot to mention that this is only an idea, possibly nothing final.

Sure. I can put the stuff on top of it. I'm thinkin' that if he's sitting on the only red thing in the room, it might make him stand out more.

I'll come one one when I get back Smiley

I think it could use a different texture.  It seems that everything you've posted has been textured with the same rusted gray-blue metal texture.  Maybe that sameness is part of the visual style you're going for, but I wouldn't mind a little variety.

'Aight.

Actually, I have no idea why that is. See, I have a folder of textures and such, but I have no idea what any of them LOOK like, so I just kinda keep guessing till I find a good one, and it keep being the same one.

Highly good point.

I personally like the texture of the walls.  

The rustic look is great.

Could look better if you added more curves on top and bottom and the vertical lines are great to represent power of this cathedral.

Instead of red and dark gray, you should use lighter gray and white and it would look like marble; unless you want that older look.  That would be awesome.

Either way its cool... good job, post an update.

New texture (maybe not different enough)

But an animation to test out some stuff.

Aye. That it is.

Hmm... I'm hoping to make it look less like "Pipes, and more, I dunno. Real or something." ish. I think I'll add several platforms (And still havent' added his throne)

Sounds great. You know what would be a good change, in my opinion. Instead of making it rustic in old, make it shiney and futuristic...not to futuristic.

Just something that people are like, wow this dude alexander has some serious power to have something like this. It may set the tone a bit more. I dunno your the expert, not me. Im waiting anxiously Cheesy Tongue
