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 )

that cathedral looks really good as do the market stands.

as for realism, the color looks good enough for fire and oil lanterns, maybe a bit to bright but thats about it.
i am missing oil/carbide streetlights, then again, that may be a bit too modern (1800's ish... this looks about 1600/1700's ish).


in any case, great render/artwork.

Definitely my type of place. No cars, no roads, no overly modern stuff. Just some old medieval market in the glow of Christmas

Very nice work! The detail is amazing! Creating something like this, i would never have thought of creating trails on the snow :P The lighting is warm contrasting the cold weather and bearing the warm feeling that comes with christmas. The models are incredible. I really, really like it! I am definitely watching you!

I just tough looks like (up to 90%) Strasbourg's Cathedral Place, the church itself doesn't look like it, but that's the same disposition of buildings. Check on google ;)
