Fireplace front
« on: April 02, 2008, 03:39:38 pm »

This is a fireplace front that I'm planning to use in my palace room. It will be one of those antique, huge fireplaces, and a very elaborated one. The whole room is a work in progress, but it is only live on my mind, for now.


This is just the beginning of a decorated side stone. I will only make one. The other will be mirrored.


You can see the half column that will be on each side of the fireplace. Still much to do. Only 50% of the column is finished (about 5% of the whole work and about 0.1% of the whole room).

i saw some of your other elements a while back, and i was already thinking that this is going to be an absolutely stunning scene when you've finished - this just confirms what i was thinking!  excellent work!

Very, very nice.
Your column looks similar to the legs of the table I have in my museum.
If you'd like to compare I can post an image.

Thanks. The building process is quite similar, actually.

Thanks. I would like to take a look at that table, when possible.

Looks high poly, could you show a wireframe
I'm guessing you used the rope making technique

Here's the table. The legs are made from different parts and the twisted section is a long cube.

Today I've been busy and did not much. Nevertheless, the decorative column is 100% complete. The base is pretty much complete too. Here is the model:


Here is a detailed view of the wireframe:

Nice room! Thanks for sharing it with us.

I never use modifiers and warps for the twisting effects, due to lack of control. It is all made by hand.

It is not quite a high poly. It is a medium poly actually. You can see the wireframe in the last image above. Hope it is sufficiently detailed.

It is all made by hand.

...you used the lathe tool for that little round bit at the base, right?

anyways, your dedication to your modelling work is quite impressive, i'm sure i wouldn't have the patience to build something like that!

Thank you for the additional pics. I can see it much clearer now and your column is totally different from my table legs.  ;D
Wonderful work !

Now the left and right pillars are 100% complete, and the respective columns have bases and capitals. The left and right pillars are separated meshes.

Below you can see the wireframe:


And the rendered image:

Thanks once more. I didn't used the lathe tool, due to my inability to convert a linear mesh to a path. I suggested that function to Steve, though. It was made using a copy/paste/rotate pattern.

You can't put a mesh on a path, but you can extrude a spline on a path.
But it does look like the lathed the base of the column (not the twisted part) around an axis.

I've made the base fire guards. They are pretty basic when compared to the posts (columns), but I think they only need to be decorated on the outside. Here are the pics:

The wireframe with faces:


The rendered model:


Still to do is the sill (should be easy), the lintel (heavily decorated) and the supporting brackets (heavily decorated too). The final model will have a total of 8 meshes.

looks cool - just wondering though, what's the little block on the inside of the bottom corners do?

They are merely structural. I thought they would provide structural strength by distributing the downward force from the post to the sill. They also are a bit of decorative and provide a small protection from the fire.
