Once finished with the modeling, I performed an important step for better execution and management of the file: I divided the scene into several levels (Fig.06). I believe that this process saves time and energy for the next steps.

I started the mapping for all the materials. Fig.07 shows the principal maps of "diffuse" that I used: woods for the floor and the library, and different concretes for the external details.

The books were mapped individually, but as you can see from Fig.08, only 10 maps were used. The trick to having a real effect was simply to "mess up" the books and put them in various different positions, which allowed me to hide the fact that only 10 different ones were being used.

[QUOTE=bambambam;861356]Come on.. this is not making of.. what a joke.. he didnt even explain material setups, lighting values, postowork explanation.. there is nothing useful here..Remove it from making of as this is not a making of..[/QUOTE]This is not the tutorial! Making of is the story of work creation. Author chooses the topic of his article by himself. If you want to study the lighting setup, buy training DVDs or ask the author! So, be more respectful.2 authorThanks for this article. That was very interesting.

With regards to Making Ofs it is up to the artists what they choose to focus on and they are not all intended for beginners. Also please note that many of our contributors are not native English speakers and therefore their Making Ofs are likely to be less detailed because of this. While we appreciate that this means you will find some more informative than others, we believe it is important to give everyone a chance to share their practices and showcase their work.

Well, it is more like "i got passed every defender and scored", withour explaining how you passed defenders... I am an advanced user, so I can understand some of what and why you did, but most of people wont.
