One more render from yesterday with some detail I added to the roadway and its intersection with the tower.
Adding some detail to the walkway/trainway of my Ben Franklin Bridge model.
More fiddly underside bits and steel details
Rendered a zoom-in on the roadbed-tower connection which I worked on yesterday.
This is based on the original Bridge Line trains that were used starting from a decade after the construction of the bridge in 1926 up until the 1960s when they were released with PATCO trains, still in use.
Hollowed out the X’s and filled them with more X’s today.
Rendered a view zooming in on the top of the tower. My plan is to stitch these views together into a page on my website where you can click on a certain part of the bridge to zoom in.
@sublingual have you tried putting a real looking hdri behind it yet? that’s gotta look convincingly photoreal by now
@halcy I'm using one of the built in sky textures and since you're looking up at it the difference between that and an outdoor HDRI map is pretty subtly. Maybe I should find one with a lot of clouds though just for comparison. Mostly I am happy to keep it a little bit graphic because of the amount of detail though!
@sublingual yeah I mean, it already looks great, but I’d figure if it has just the tiniest bit of uneven lighting and slight variations in the sky it’d pass for a photo unless you go looking
