    While I'll agree that it looks better, it's still looking flat to me. That's one of the main reasons I did a 3D model of it awhile back, to provide better shading reference.

    There must be a way to make it look less flat... I mean, look at this:

    They can give perspective to something which shouldn't even exist...

    Which is sheer irony since I actually used your 3D render as a base.
     
  4. The domed part is an issue for me. The shading does not connect correctly with the rest of the prison, nor does it behave realistically. I like the bottom part a lot though.

    This may be a red metal lampshade, but it gives us a better idea of how light reflects off a metallic dome:

    I also found these... 'things', too:

    It's surprising what you can find when you do a <a href="http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&tbo=1&tbs=isch:1&q=dome+~metal&sa=N&start=400&ndsp=20" target="_blank">Google Image</a> search.

    Maybe I'm just having a bad idea here, but maybe the central part looks flat because the sides are perfectly vertical, so I wonder if it would look any better by adding some imperfection, or something like this: [​IMG].

    I don't even know if what I said makes sense at all, I know nothing about art :(
     

  8. So close Test-Object, SO CLOSE!!! How about you just overlay your most recent egg prison with a 50% alpha of the grainier one. I think that would do it. ;)

    Awesome! But I think now the dome is a tad too grainy. However, the sides are PERFECT! And there is a certain level of comedy in the scene you have given us.
     
  11. Agreed, turn down the dome grain a tad and I think it'll finally be done. OMG, I've been awaiting this moment for so long! lol

    There. I even fixed a couple things that didn't fit the capsule as a whole anymore.

  13. I think it's perfect, now if only anyone cared what I think...

    It's as close to perfect as I can imagine! There's nothing I would change.

    My only complaint is that the yellow-and-black striped bit at the bottom uses a different yellow to the button on top - both should fade down to a dark, greenish-yellow like the button, but the striped piece fades down to a brown/orangish yellow instead. = ) Aside from that pernickety little nitpick, though, it's looking fantastic!

    EDIT: Quick-n'-dirty mockup just to show what I mean:

    [​IMG]

    Compare to the above; this one uses a consistent yellow. = ) Side note; there's a stray pixel of blue on the yellow-and-black, but I didn't bother to fix that in my version since it's only a quick edit for illustrative purposes.

    You guys ;3
    It's settled then. I'm uploading the capsule on the database. Why didn't I bother finishing it earlier again?

    Wait a sec... the black and yellow striped part doesn't look like it has a 3D perspective. Was it just drawn in 2D?

    No, it was in fact done in 3D and almost literally copied+pasted in Photoshop. You're just being paranoid. :v:

    Well can you blame me? I'm being followed around by this giant eye all the time.
