    Whole Lotta Loft - Old Steampunk Engine House

    And it is time for final entry.

    As I said at the beginning:

    “My idea is to create the interior of the old steampunk loft in the engine house. It is a place existing in a steampunk world. Machine builder who lived in “those days” adapted the engine house to the loft. For him it's a new place to live and work. This is where he constructs steam machines.”

    If I could live in a steampunk world, my loft will look just like this.

    Hello all!

    My idea is to create the interior of the old steampunk loft in the engine house. It is a place existing in a steampunk world. Machine builder who lived in “those days” adapted the engine house to the loft. For him it's a new place to live and work. This is where he constructs steam machines.

    Also, I am creating some steampunk looking machine. It will be a part of the interior.

    Can't believe you dived so deep you did welding on your models. Awesome.

    When I was looking for some steampunk machines I found Modern Steam Monobike 1896 made by Stefano Marchetti. I was convinced this is a scale 1:1. Then, I found more images and I realized... This is a model (1:7 scale, sic!). Mindblowing details and materials.

    I decided to model this monibike for my concept. (maybe not all parts, depending on the time). This is a machine that will be created by constructor in his loft.

    amazing and inspirational albeit not being rendered yet! this is what a competition and storytelling all about. i am peeing in my pants already. small stuff like wrench and such would be nice near the bike and sort of making the eye wonders from small items to the bigger things and the bigger picture. sort of how steampunkers are, always addicted to steampunking things! but who am i to comment rite ha ha.
    anyway, good luck for the remaining weeks and the final submission!

    Hi, im pretty new to 3ds max, how much time did you need to model the construction parts, for example the 2nd picture of the constructions, the arc. did u model it completely? even the ornaments at the base of the pillar?
    awesome work my fav so far in this challenge

    Thank you Maikel! To be honest it is really hard to say how much time I spent on this model because I did a lot of things in one time. But I also modeled some table and old toolbox:

    In this case probably something between 2 or 3 hours per model. Setting up proportions is sometimes time consuming (depends on the model and references). Here is pretty simple geometry so it was not that difficult.

    Still I have to add a lot of things. Next one will be clay render.

    I think, the best option for this scene will be warm light. I have some post-processing idea in my mind with this. (after rendering I saw one of the models overlaps the window sill. I'll fix it next time):
