I like it, Kouko!  Gives a better view of the handle as well.

Echo that!

Great images from both of you - I’ve never tried poses (aggressive or not) with a weapon before…makes me want to (after I move the keyboard and monitor to my new desk tonight).

Try doing this in DAZ STUDIO or POSER….

Just ambient occlusion. no lights. Isometric camera.

Both Poser and DAZ Studio can do ambient occlusion so I wonder, what is the implied difficulty apart from modeling?

the lack of a text modeler is the difficulty. Kinda fundamental to the image, seeing as how it’s a logo.

Your logo can be recreated in DS except for the lettering itself which can be done in Hexagon.  Other then that, all aspects can be met.

Hexagon is free and does text modeling very well - http://mattymanx.deviantart.com/art/Star-Trek-3D-Font-Pack-339642352

Carrara is only a tool and does not do everything.  It does certain things better then other programs but then does poorly in other areas as well.

Okay, let’s not start any wars please and thank you. I was really just curious as to what exactly she meant.

hmm, post a render, hmmmmm what nice one do I have handy? How about this one with stonemasons backstreets I’m still working on. This is just a test render, ignore the target helper sphere.

I would be willing to put this BASIC artstudio task in Carrara up against your multi-program workflow any day, especially time involved from start to finished render…. Let’s go! wink

Please do not misunderstand my comment.  It was not an attempt to make one program out to be better than another but simply to point out that it can be done with the right tools and creativity.  All programs I use, DS included are just tools.  Though while I do not model much of anything, due to lack of skill, Carrara has been an invalueable tool over the years in regards to all the models I have converted here - http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/491/ - and elsewhere.  In fact all models listed there went through Carrara regardless of its native format.

It could also be photographed with carved balsa wood, grey primer, an airbrush, and some controled studio lighting…. But that would be somewhat off topic seeing as how this is a Carrara forum. smirk

I think it’s ok to toot the Carrara horn here. Horses for courses as the Brits say. I posted something that Carrara can do fast and well. I don’t see the need to create a controversy, but I am happy to back up the reasons I posted it here with my real life example. DS is a lousy studio “tool” (your word, not mine). Poser (Pro) is less lousy, but still very specific for the price. If you choose to insist these programs are all equal in their capabilities I beg to differ. You are clearly not using your “tools” for the same purposes that I am.

I don’t need advice to use multiple programs and importing models when Carrara does it all in one and we are here in the Carrara forum. I actually question why that would even be suggested. Haters gonna hate. tongue wink

So now suggesting that A is not better than B is tantamount to hating A.

That’s some mighty interesting logic raspberry

Didn’t someone recently say that “Most people here can take criticism just fine…....” ?

Oh, wait…

Good choice, Stan.  Backstreets has always been one of my favorite pieces Stefan’s made.
