Sacred Chao antics.
« on: December 06, 2008, 02:02:23 am »
Here's a 3D sacred chao I rustled up today:



Still messing with lighting, textures and stuff. This is a low resolution render so it could be a lot more realistic.

I like the reflection in the apple. What about a bit of reflection on the tiled floor too?

Yeah x00xe, I knew you'd ask for excessive raytracing.  :D



Pity it doesn't really make much of a difference. I changed the texture of the floor a little, gonna pimp that out later. Changed the texture of the drapes but I turned the transparency down too much before the final render. That's annoying because the cloth looked pretty realistic before that.

xs.to uploads are fubar at the minute, so I found a new image hosting site: www.imagechicken.com. Its better than imageshack with its evil thumbnail limitation.

This is excellent work.

Here's a tasty offering for you to corrupt.

I'm using blender (www.blender.org) for this, it's the only 3D tool that doesn't profit from making its features impossible to learn without paying top dollar for books. Since Autodesk bought Maya I've lost all love for that once kickass piece of software. It's a shame, Maya used to be my hot topic for wooing artists.

I'm thinking of running these models through yafray (http://yafray.org/) or LuxRender (http://www.luxrender.net/) but they take forever. Yafray is generally slow for what it does (which will be sorted out soon). LuxRender is an unbiased raytracer so it simulates billions of photons which will probably take 3 days to draw maybe 50% of the first image.

Update.



After very nearly crashing my machine, I decided that upping the resolution of the apple wasn't a solution for applying writing. This is using bumpmaps which don't use 1GB of RAM and 2GB of virtual memory within 2 seconds. Now the leaf needs veins.

i liked the checkered black/white better, for contrast.

but you should use that stripey zig-zag floor pattern they have in Twin Peaks!!!

:omg:

That's what I thought of too.


And I agree with 000, the first checkered floor looks better.

These are kickass.

Have you taken a look at the Intermittens project?
