Re: Cliffside Retreat

Hai! It occured to me earlier today that I should try experimenting with creating the layered texture in Terrain render, and then reapplying that by way of UV Unwrap texturing in the appropriate Twilight tool. :idea: Thank you for the link to Majid's water texture library. 8-) For the life of me, I ...

Re: Cliffside Retreat

perhaps the right procedural material would be in order here, but a true CG artist is also mat painter and would texture by hand I do.

Arigato, Mike. As I get post pro done on the other views I've rendered, I'll be posting them. It's going to take time unfortunately, Postpro being a sometimes painstaking thing. I guess it is reminiscent of a classic Bond villain's villa. The concept here was more of a rogueish gentlewoman advenurer...

Cliffside Retreat

A getaway in a temperate rain-forest on some faraway world' Still not complete. There is a lot of fiddly postpro cleanup to do as a result of imperfections in the mesh, and the unfortunate inherent limitations of texturing with the terrain tool. As nice as it might be if it could do everything for m...

THis is one of the hardest posts I've had to write in a long time. It is with deepest regret and sadness that I anno...

Re: Retro Robot

Don't feel too bad about it Tuna. Dark images are the bane of my existence. It can be tough to get it to look good for a broad spectrum of monitors, and tone mapping doesn't always work the way I hope it will. :? These days I do a lot of it selectively in GIMP. I also raise the power on my lighting ...
