Here's a few of the things I've rendered up. I tried to grab a little from here and a little from there.
These are very nicely done! The last one is a bit dark for my taste (visually, not thematically), but I like the dynamic feeling in it. Keep them coming ! :)
I like the old guy with the glasses.
How'd you do the stubble?
Scott- I'm a big Film Noir sort of guy. I love deep dark shadows contrasted with white light and interestingly shaped Shadows (and I'm mostly color blind so it keeps me from messing stuff up when I move renders to Photoshop for touch ups) but I can see (especially after taking in your render thread with everything beautifully lit) where it may be darker than you prefer.
I've been experimenting with overexposing some areas in a render to leach out colors to make the darks even darker. I've had some success and a lot of failure. I'll see if I can find a render where I overexposed an area on purpose.
Steve- The stubble is part of the Unshaven Bundle for Genesis
that is how it looks when applied and the only dial spun is Walrus at 4.0%
Some of you may recognize the render second from bottom. It was one of 5 (??? Maybe) contest winners at www.Thrillbent.com. I think I was the only entrant that won a spot to do a 3D picture.
. I think I was the only entrant that won a spot to do a 3D picture and it's so beautiful picture.
TYhanks Kaisar, I'll see if I can get some more up soon!
