I recently bought the Hiro 5 pro bundle and really like it. While I was at it I also got the CMG Hiroism add-ons. So here are some renders I did this weekend.
There’s Yasahiro, Hiroko, and Toshiro. The poses and textures come from the Hiro 5 pro bundle. Yasahiro wears the Dragon Rage outfit, and Hiroko has on the Octavius shirt. Yasahiro uses the Takeo textures; Hiroko and Toshiro use Arashi.
The dojo came from ShareCG, and the brick wall (part of a building) came from Blendswap.
The dojo scene was assembled in DS 4.5. Toshiro was posed in DS, but other parts of the scene were added in Blender. I used the mcjTeleblender script to export to Blender (v2.65.10) and set up my own custom material nodes there. Cameras and lighting were set up in Blender too. Toshiro was originally posed with PH Sassy, but I tried my hand at particle/strand hair in Blender. That uses up a lot of RAM! Also, in Blender I did some minor sculpting and vertex pushing to fix any clothing and hair issues caused by the characters’ poses.
Rendering was done with Blender Cycles in Ubuntu 12.04 since it is a bit faster than Windows 7.
