Hello everybody! My name is Khadyko Vladimir and in this article I will be explaining the steps I took to create my image called Lantern. I started this image by simply looking for a nice reference image on the internet of something that I felt I wanted to model. I found a great image of a lantern, but the picture was taken in the daytime. I wanted to change that in my image and show the lantern in the evening as I felt that this would be a much more interesting image. The lantern was modeled in 3ds Max, but I also used V-Ray, ZBrush, Photoshop and After Effects.

The model of the lantern itself was rather simple, so rather than explain the whole process I will show you how it looked when I had modeled it (Fig.01 - 02).

The welding that is visible on the model was created using a combination of a few modifiers applied on the rectangular spline. By using the Sweep option and a gradient ramp in the displacement slot, I was able to achieve a wavy look (Fig.03). I customized this so that the effect could be tiled in the necessary areas. I also used some noise to give it a more random look.
