'Artists worktable at the window overlooking the river'

Post Sat Jul 05, 2014 4:31 pm

I have had this on my Desktop for many months, since visiting an exhibition of Rembrandt works. It's not a Rembrandt, it is by Willem Drost, a pupil of his(some of Drost's works were originally attributed to Rembrandt - hence the 'Lost in Time').

So, the first thing is to try to match the point of view with BLAM. After trying a few different combinations of z and y axes, I have something that kind of fits.

Here is a photon map of the basic models:-

Quick test:-

I'm not sure yet how to model the table. It looks like a stone shelf, but is described as a table, so I might simply cover it up with a cloth :)
I will render the exterior separately.

Thanks should go to the British Museum, who kindly sent me a larger reference image to work from.

Started adding in some background and testing colours:-

Not sure whether to desaturate and sepia tone or not:-

Sorry about the poor image upload. Many free hosting sites refused it due to the filesize.

Wow that colored Image looks pretty nice. It is kind of new and fresh not like the original.
I like it great work :D
