^_^ Thanks~

I think it is the render settings pulling something… I checked the background terrain and there isn’t any displacement on it… I even enabled depth of field and used the preset Final quality setting and it rendered in 17min


Looks real good, and scary - like the last thing you would want to see on a nice day out in the woods smile

Thankfully with this lil guy it won’t be the last thing you see on a nice day out in the woods ^_^

Lucas is more shy than aggressive, and not the sort to attack people at random unless you give him a reason to smile
He’s just jumping for joy here XD

Was reading a tutorial on the web about the render settings and what they do…
Most of it was pretty accurate, up until this part:

Global illumination (GI) – Really nice but need to setup carefully to avoid long render
times.
Global radiosity (GR) – Use for indoor scenes only– you won’t notice an improvement over
Global illumination for outdoor scenes
and will significantly increase the render time.

I underlined the part I scoffed at quite audibly. There is often a massive difference in outdoor scenes between GI and GR. ^_^
A quick browse through Quadspinner’s website should be proof of that.  I was also looking at the book “Realism in Vue” and he showed several examples of a scene using Global Ambience, then Global Illumination, and then Global Radiance.  GR was a huge improvement over GA, and a slight improvement over GI.  Then in two other scenes showed the difference between GI and GR.  In one canyon scene the canyon was mostly dark - in the GR version it was illuminated quite well, and the “Color bleed” from the canyon walls not present in GI was impressive (And something I notice in real life a lot). 

‘Course the tutorial/overview was written for Vue 5, and RIV was written using 7, 8, and 9.  Lot has changed since the earlier versions, so is possible GA was not as awesome as it is today =P

So uh… Random musing?  =P

random: sometimes teh internet is baffling, unclear, perplexing, puzzling, mystifying, disconcerting; ambiguous, misleading, inconsistent, contradictory; inexplicable and unfathomable. I guess 99% of those times would be caused by user error smile

Normally I wouldn’t get annoyed with these sorts of comments, but seriously this is the fourth time this guy has made a “The anatomy on your dinosaur is wrong” remark on my submissions, and not the first time I’ve tried explaining “I just buy the models, I don’t make them - and I know that the anatomy is wrong”.

1st - Comments on one of my raptors saying it doesn’t have feathers. I explain I ALREADY KNOW THAT just I don’t have the ability to add ‘em.
2nd - Comments on one of my Trex images with the same comment (Literally pasted but swapping raptor with Trex). I hide the comment and inform him I don’t want to start a debate on that as it’s not been fully proven like it has with the raptor.
3rd - Comments again on one of my other raptors stating “cool but it still doesn’t have feathers”.  I once again inform him I do not have the ability to do that.
4th and nearing the last straw with the guy - comments once more on my raptor, this time pointing out the “broken wrist” thing common in the “Old Raptor Model” that I personally have a dislike of as well,...  But the fact I pointed out in the submission description it isn’t a realistic raptor nor is it intended to be, and that I’ve explained multiple times I already know that it isn’t realistic, AND the fact he has yet to comment on any of my raptor drawings (Where I have attempted to make them more “modern”), is starting to tick me off.

What’s with the downward-facing hands?

~Akaikosh
Why does it matter?

~NinjaMonkey38
The hands weren’t folded downward on theropod dinosaurs. They can’t fold the hands so the palm is facing down.

~Akaikosh
Find the part where I mention this being a realistic dinosaur and repeat it to me. I’ll get back to you after that. Also keep in mind my comments on the other raptor image of mine.

I’ll make it as simple as I can and I hope you listen this time - I can’t do anything about that, and in this case I don’t care. I do have two raptors modeled realistically - proportions, skull shape, wrists, the feathers and protofeathers, everything. I just didn’t use it here because this guy looks cute.
Don’t bother pointing out what is wrong with these - I KNOW THAT IT IS WRONG, I UNDERSTAND THAT.

If you want to comment on the artistic aspect of the image fine. If you want to ask questions about the technical parts like how I made it great. But pointing out the anatomy issues in the dinosaur you can kindly keep to yourself.

Little Lucas the raptor leaping for joy… Or pouncing onto a potential meal?
Whatever his intentions, he sure seems excited!  XD

Another chilly day in Austin, Texas!  Highs around 50f, could be worse!

PPro is actually pretty usable on this 15.6in display.. some bits are hard to see, but it’s workable, so I’m able to do things and not just curse at it (heh).  Still thinking of a quad-core i7 lappy with a 17in display but DANG they’re expensive! gulp

The local honky-tonk is having food and a rockabilly band New Years Eve so that’s where I’m going to go.  Should be a blast, and it’s in walking distance! smile

Complaint: last weeks stress has screwed up my sleep, so I feel run down today.  I’ll probably end up spending all day in bed, and then tomorrow I have to go to the back house and organize what to keep out and what to shove into storage.  Sigh.

Non-complaint: triple shot latte’! shock I think I’m waking up enough to hunt down some lunch!!!
