    hi everyone,

    Been impressed by this forum for ages so thought I should post some of my work... It's not my own design, but a new model from Wally Marine. I made it with the plans available on their website, so it may very well not be 100% accurate.

    I've been a 3d artist specialising in architecture for 3 years and would like to move into yachts, product viz etc as it's more fun... this is my first attempt.

    crits welcome

    (I have to be very careful now, as there might be some typo detectives here) hehhhh :)
    I like it very much. The ship looks a bit too dark, but it might be because of the materials used on it. How did you do the foaming part? Is is post work or rendering? Can you also tell what software you use for rendering?

    hi thanks for the comments

    I intentionally left the boat a bit dark as I think it needs a slightly more sinister look than the average powerboat!

    It was modelled in 3ds max and rendered in Maxwell Render, though I normally use Vray (Maxwell takes absolutely forever to render).

    Wake behind boat was put in in photoshop after rendering. It's a composite of 6 or seven differnt wakes. you can see if you look closely at it in high res -->

    After i took a very close look to the hires image, i did notice the people sitting. The yacht look much smaller in the small picture but i think its because the foam looks too big compared to the people. Maybe it its just my imagination. The ocean looks very good.

    thanks guys

    It was seeing that less-than-exciting render of the silver Wally 125 that prompted me to make the image you see above!... well, I decided to have a look at doing marketing and design images of yachts at the Southampton (UK) Boat Show last year.

    Yachts (both sail and power) tend to be so much more beautiful than buildings. The connection between form and function seems so clear and the environment in which they operate is so much more romantic than an apartment block in a regenerated part of East London!

    Some of the designs I've seen from members of this forum are so pure and expressive, it's impossible not to be drawn to it as a 3d artist.

    I agree tommyjj, I'm a CG artist as well and the most fulfilling work I do is the yacht stuff. The lines and structure are far more interesting than architectural visualization. nice work.

    I did most of the modelling (buildings and boats) in the marina image, then one of our compositors put the final image toghether (background, people etc). The smaller boats in the far distance were from a 3d library and nothing to do with me.

    I've not had any experience with .igs files. I didn't think anyone used them any more. If you want to export from max to a CAD application or illustrator, export as .dxf or .dwg format. If you're exporting to .dxf make sure it is the right version - 2006, 2005 etc - for your CAD software to understand.
