Cgtuts+ Workshop #25 Low Poly Alley Way

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

We're back with another entry in our weekly community project, where we post a render or animation created by a member of the Cgtuts+ community, and ask you to provide feedback and constructive criticism on their work. It’s a great way to learn more about the intricacies of computer graphics, express your viewpoint, and have your own content critiqued by your fellow artists!

Quick Ground Rules

  • Be nice! We’ve deliberately chosen work that isn’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
  • Feel free to offer any type of advice on – Modeling, Texturing, Materials, Lighting, Rendering, Composition, etc.
  • You can also link to another render that you feel offers a great example of this type of content done exceptionally well.

So let's get to it, here's this week's entry created by Fouad Karam!

A Little Background

This is my attempt on a low poly environment of about 7000 polys and 1024x1024 texture maps for diffuse, specular and normal. Rendered in Marmoset toolbag. The mailbox is inspired from the tutorial of our own Chris Tate of CGtuts+, but was simplified for a low poly count.

It is based on an area of downtown Montreal using Google street view as reference. Please feel free to comment and provide criticism on all aspects of the image.
