Wintermarket by svenart Wintermarket by svenart
thanks for viewing. Please click on the image to see it in full size.

I wish you all a wonderful christmas and a happy new year.

About the image:

actually I wanted to finish this project as a day version of a big historical marketplace with much more people and activiy next year. But then I tested the wip scene with a new lscript I wrote for saving lightsituations, and I liked it so much that I decided to create a winter/christmas version of this image.

The people are actually lowpoly characters I created a few years ago for a private 3d-game project. The have around 1500-3000 polygons each, most of the are rigged, but I also used a few groups of freezed peoples in the scene.

The Scene contains 3,9 Million polygons,399 Objects and 474 Lights.

For placing all the lights, I wrote a small lscript wich can place the lights onto the polygons of a Object. So you first create one polygon for every light in a building, and save your polys with same name as the object + "_lights". Later, the lscript will automatically load this object and places light on every polygon in your "light object"...

I made the image look very much blue and orange to reach a good cold/warm contrast... Of course I know that this looks not soo real, but my main goal here was a good mood, not realism.

The christmas tree is of course more something like a "joke". The scene represents a fictive town of the 16-17th century.

Specially for this scene I modeled a few new buildings you can see on the right side... Some of them are french (16.-17th century I guess), a few others are german "Backstein-Gotik" buildings from 14-17 th century.

The church is a mix of notre Dame (side), Westmister Abbey (front) and a few german churches.

As always, I created this image with Lightwave3d.

Wintermarket by ~svenart is a truly breathtaking scene which encapsulates many aspects of Christmas: the dark nights, the shopping and the religious too. ( Featured by joannastar )
