The lower-left item is a handbell, though its clunky solid-metal design isn't so typical.

That's what I thought, but wasn't sure.

 

Here is another one if you prefer:  bell.png

That trompette looks a heck of a lot better than mine, send it over dude.

 

Thanks.

 

The hand bell is clunky for sure. If it shows in close ups it definitely would be better if it had more definition.

You and Beowulf71 are a pretty decent design team; he catches incorrect details that I'd miss.  Keep up the great work!

How do you make great metal textures like that?

I use a generated silk texture in Photoshop, keeping it at one iteration so i don't have to deal with the edges of a repeating pattern until the unwrapping in Blender, then add a golden tint to it. Unwrapping the model is a very tedious process to get right because, in this case, most of the surfaces are tubes or spheres in nature. It takes a while to hide the seams and not have a visible repeating pattern.

The material is set to glossy and i add a reflection map from an old texture that is used on just about any model you can see on the Internet. Lakerem2 it is called. I just blurred it a bit so the details do not matter so much as the reflections it provides. Tweaking to get the glossiness and reflections right is a bit of a fuss but once you get it, it works great.

Got the heavenly glow effect to work on the gates modd you can see it in action here. Let me know if that works for you.

 

The animations for the musical instruments are coming at a slower pace than I would like but they will be done.

The glow itself is impressive, but the gates and stairs appeared over-bright white; I don't know whether the glow is causing that intense whiteness or not.  Balancing the colors and contrast would make the scene easier to watch.

You are right, the white balance in the game is really not easy to get right. I redid the texture on the stairs with added details in the shadow areas to give it more definition, yet still maintain the original brightness of the piece (not an easy task).

Very well done!  Keep it up, and don't forget to show me.
