Executioner – Update

Finally whipped out some hands for this dude. Still lots more work to be done.

I also attach a second progress shot, I’m not going to post a new message for this (arm bands/armor, face detailing and various little details starting to creep up).

I attach a little wireframe view as well, so you can check out the topology.

Executioner

Hi everybody,

here is a character I started to take a break from work and finally go back to some more personal stuff 🙂

Here are a few evolution shots. It started out as a Zsphere model, converted from Zbrush to C4D where I redrew the topology and added some details. Once I’m finished adding details in C4D, I’ll go back to Zbrush for some detailing, then back to C4D to render.. weeh.

Wireframes to follow.

Studio Setup

Hi all,

after requests from the Cebas forum, I decided to start a small serie of studio setups for FR (I will probably make some for Vray as well).
So, here is the first one, with two different objects. The characteristics of this studio are :
– two reflection planes, with slightly different materials
– one main light and one fill light
– light dome with gradient
– gradient shaders applied to reflections and glossiness on the ground, to get variations from top to bottom
– GI settings for fast render for those interested (rendered in less than 9 minutes at this size on my old school dual Xeon 3.2Ghz)
– Glow post effect (within Final Render)
– no post prod, but it could use some level correction, of course
