Train station
show user profile  rob@dynamic
Hi all,

Another personal project I've been working on. Prob about 8hrs work in total.

It's stating to come together now, may do 1 final render if anyone has any crits?

never seen a station with posts close to the plaform like that - don't they get in the way of suitcases etc. unless the train's lined up perfectly ?
(they do have something like that at some underground stations but that always syncs properly)

I like it, very impressive for 8 hours work! What iI'm not sure about though is juxtaposition of modern shiny train and Victorian style B/W image and smokey industrial backdrop. Also I think you'd expect the benches to match the posts to some degree. At the moment it's looking a bit miss matched.

I like the contrast with the shiny train and the 'ye olde' train station feel of things. But I do agree with BishBash - it seems a little too disjointed, definitely because of the backdrop.

I've also never seen posts at the edge of the track like that :s

8 hours work? Christ man, you're mad!

Forgot to add to my comment that I think colour would help.

Is this based on an actual train station, or something you came up with on your own?

The reason I ask is that you don't see too many building frames made with vierendeel trusses (no diagonals). Also, it looks like you could be missing some secondary framing members in the roof, between the main building frames and around the exterior of the window openings. That is unless the flat roof you've got shown is intended to be a fairly significant (thick) member, in which case I would think the main building frames would be a little beefier to handle the extra weight. Sorry, I'm a structural engineer...I couldn't resist. A bunch of secondary roof members may clutter the image a bit, so I wouldn't blame you for leaving them out.

Congrats on a very beautiful and classic looking scene.

very nice, specially for 8 hours, but i'd definitely remove all those posts.

at the moment, to me, it's all extremely cg.

a few more things...

the seats are rather old and you have a modern train... wouldn't there be modern seats with that moden train?

posts... there must be over 100 there. far to many tbh

for 8 hours that is pretty good :) only crits are that some of the items in there seem a bit out of place / wrong sized or giving off confusing signals as to what they are.

I think it's great, but because it all looks old, and black and white, it should have a vignette, dusty scratches, etc, to complete the feel of it.

cheers for all the comments guys

I was using a number of different images as references, but the image itself is my interpretation of them all.

re. the posts, i did see a number of ref images with them in, however they were on wider platforms, so were set bk from the track abit more. I will play around with removing/reducing the number of them.

re. the benches agreed they do look quite large, i will reduce the size of them.

re. the train. Agreed. I think i will set about modelling an old fashion train today over lunch.

thanks again for all the commetns

I reall like it, but I'm not 100% convinced the composition is there. The leading lines take the eye to an empty space. Don't get me wrong, I think this is excellent, but it seems to have no "focus" in the scene.

cheers for the comment mate. I understand what your saying. Not sure how to comp it any different though. I didn't want to focus on any particular part of the scene, more the scene been seen as a whole. That make sense?

What dyu rekon?

It makes sense, and perhaps it doesn't need a focal point. It's really nice, none the less, as always with your work!

Has the magazine with your Kitchen come out yet?
