Just a quick note about my most recent step. I said that I wanted some shields on the walls. So I designed one in Inkscape using the first part of the following wonderful video by Snowex’s B0X as a guide:
Then I extruded the shield in Blender following the instructions of bugzilla2001 in the following video:
Then I imported it five times into my DAZ Studio scene. In respect to the textures on the shields, I just used PowerPoint to make some simplistic images and imported them in as shown in previous posts on other objects.
I had intended to leave it at that, but felt that the corridor needed some ambience (mood my friends, some beautiful shadowy mood!).
So I made one spotlight outside the windows and a very faint one inside high up on the furthest corner of the room. Here is the result:
And for one certain reader out there… yes, I will look at a banner or two :)
Thanks everyone for your continued interest.
