My beveled bridge ^^ :

Here is my scene using the bevel modifier on the pavement and Lamp Posts. It was easy enough to do except for the fact that I have a Bridge Archway that has to be separated into different objects to make life a little more easy. But at any rate this lecture was easy to follow. I don’t think any thing in this lecture needs to be done any better than how it was presented.

Here is my Castle Scene:

Bevel Modifier. I did it on the bricks on the side of the bridge. I went to do it on the castle wall, but liked it so much more with just a subsurf on it.

I have used the bevel modifier on almost everything. I particularly like the effect it has on the archway.

Added bevel onto the road/bridge, already had it on the railings (but reduced the distance in this one) and the lamp posts.

What would really help your scenes, would be a bit more dynamic range, they’re awesome but dark currently :wink:

Here is my scene with the addition of the Bevel. I’m really not seeing a difference but that may be my eyesight.

as part of the work on this lesson, I added in a mirror-ball texture for the sky (texture courtesy of Michael Bridges Complete Blender Creator Course Section 5) and tweaked the sun just a bit to create better lighting. This really improved the look of the water (imho).

next will be bringing in the lamp posts, which I’ll be re-designing as the originals just don’t go with this look.

Just made the bricks of my well look a bit better. But it still looks like a comic mostly.
