Adventure is the latest in the family of idents for Foxtel On Demand, lead by team member Brett.
I modelled and textured the Cave D, and textured the Castle M and Clock D.
The foliage for the cave was created using the Ivy Grower plug-in for Cinema 4D. I switched out the standard ivy leaves for various jungle leaves sourced from cgtextures. The rocks were modelled from cubes and textured with lyken-covered rock materials also from cgtextures.
I added the stones around the windows and main entrance and used a massive stone texture for the fascade, created by cloning stone textures from cgtextures together in Photoshop.
The clock was also textured using cgtextures. I originally used the Lumas effect to add the radial brushed metal effect to the cogs but Brett suggested using a brushed metal texture instead, which cut render times dramatically. The brushed metal texture was mixed with other grungy metal textures using the Cinema 4D Layer Shader and Fusion Shaders.
