Robin # 16: The Arena

Horo set up the Arena — or the Colosseum, built with Bryce boolean primitives.

v01: David

David remodeled the colosseum with Wings. Then he added a roofing bit with some blue windows in and put some spots above that. He changed the material on the building, tweaked the sky and put a materal on the ground.

v02: Horo

oro isolated the material on the ground plane for the arena floor and introduced an arena perimeter with a different material. The groundplane became the street. He tried to put the arena into an urban context. He went for a long block.

v03: David

v04: Horo

Horo thought that the Arena was used to have Trolls and Nybrases fight Dragons. This has long gone since all three have perished. A sculpture was set into the Arena to remember the fact. Dragon, Troll, Nybras and the axes are from DAZ3D; material is a modified Haematite by Richter as is used on the knot on the colon. Horo set one radial light above the fighters.

v05: David

David moved away from the literal to the fantasy, added some mirrors, a lot of haze and coloured lights to set the focus on the figures.

v06: Horo

Horo went more to the dream realm. He introduced two fairies as watchers. The arena floor got semi-transparent and reflective with a low refraction setting. Then, he introduced a flat cube between the floor and the lower part of the mirror cube and gave it a blue random volume material. This cube was then copied and set below the first with swapped red and blue colour values. The arena got a ceiling, essentially a copy of the floor, but with different reflection, refraction and transparency settings. Then he lowered the max Ray Depth from 6 to 4. Finally, he moved the camera slightly and opened it by a small amount.

v07: David

David moved one of the «watchers» and added some plasma volume effect up above.
