Wow! Two first-timers and two really great renders at that! A warm welcome to countrygirl4ya and JesterVII. Hope you enjoy your little stay at our asylum. You realize, of course, that once you start this you’re not going to stop. We expect to see you every month now.


Both pieces are very impressive with the composition and the action displayed. Very much a comic book action feel to them. Very nice use of shadows and shaders. I’m beginning to see a few more possibilities using this technique.

Looks as if this contest is starting to heat up a bit. Glad I’m not entering anything more and only judging…

Nice futuristic street fight!  But you forgot the required item from most-digital-creations.com.  I’m sure there’s something there that you can put into the scene without changing it much.  It’s a worthy entry.

The M4 beard is by Adam Thwaites, which is the main requirement: one Freebie by a particular creator, in this case, it’s Adam Thwaites of Most Digital Creations.

Well here goes nothing. First ever entry into a contest.

Well, this is a righteous contest to enter.  The folks here are nice ... for the most part.  (Gotta watch that fool from Hawaii.  He’s not always nice.  But then, he doesn’t always have all his marbles.)  On the other hand, the Freebie Contests sometimes come across as making the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party seem perfectly sane.  That makes them even more fun.

All work done in DS4.5

Kewl!  It would be interesting to see how it stacks against 4.0

Title: Brawl

Nice & neat & tidy ... well, in a messy sort of way.  The messy that a good fight scene always brings.  LG’s the comic expert so I"ll defer to his wisdom but I do like how this came together.

Seems like it to me, as not only do you have the beard, but have marked it as the required item from Adams site.

Oh, OK.  There is an M4 Beard here at DAZ3D, too.  Since you didn’t put a link, I thought it was a paid item.  So, all you have to do is put the link to the item, or if it’s older and it doesn’t have its own page, put a link to the page, and tell how far down it is on the page.  At least, that’s how I understood the rules.  That’s an easy fix, though!  wink  Just edit your post to put the link in.

Takeo.Kensei your render qualifies.
I went to the renderman.org training material and read over the equations that renderman needs but how did you translate those instructions into DAZ? Did you build a brick and pulled it into a shader. I sure wish there was more documentation on how the brick gets created. I have my eye on some gooch shaders that I would like to use. They are uncompiled renderman scripts and I am not any good at taking that information and translating it into DAZ speak. Do you have this capablility? Love your shader by the way.
Lonnie

Thank you Dolly. The rendering system used by DS is 3delight which is Renderman compliant. Which means that most of the code should work for 3Delight and therefore for DS too. In practice that is not exactely true and you need some coding skills and have to read both Renderman and 3delight Documentations to get it working. You also may need a bit of knowledge of DS scripting and know how DS works to implement your shader. So basically, I can do the job of translating it to DS but I didn’t do that much yet as I didn’t see many shader that really interrested me and the one that do interest me are not useable as is in DS because one need to write DS Scripts before in order to get a compatible workflow. Till DS4.5 there was no scripted Rendering so I was kind of stuck for what I really wanted to do. So I mostly read RM docs, tips and techniques to understand how it works waiting for the day I could eventually apply them for my own shaders.

Now if you can’t code, you may also use the shader mixer but you still need some understanding of Renderman and hope that the bricks provided by Daz are enough. Not as straight forward as in Shader Builder. But if you give me the links to the shaders you’re interested in, I may do some translating someday smile

Kludge - 09 July 2012 04:12 PM

Nothing wrong with mathematical but I look forward to seeing how you develop this.  You definitely have gotten my attention.  Whether this is good or bad depends on point of view.  wink

Didn’t say it’s bad wink and tastes are subjective. There is not many “hatch” renders so I guess that makes it at least interresting. What I’d like to achieve is something that looks like Bernie Wrightson’s style that I find awesome. Have a look at some of his art here. There is also Rosinksky’s Thorgal that I’d like to mimic with a shader. I don’t know yet wether I can do that but that is in my head. I may fail but anyway I’m a dreamer

Krissy - 09 July 2012 01:29 AM

Takeo.Kensei I really like your render. The shader looks awsome wink

Thanks Krissy smile It seems the shader is appreciated. I may think of packing it with usable presets and release it.

Note to JesterVII


As a courtesy to your fellow forum users you need to be more clear with the links you post.
For an example Adam at most-digital-creations.com has 46 pages of free stuff for DAZ-Poser users.
The link you posted was for his ad at Renderosity.com, not his site.
What is worse, the link at Rendo is to Adam’s front page not the page the beard is on.
I found the beard near the bottom of page 29.
http://www.most-digital-creations.com/free_poser_poses_textures_morphs_props_29.htm - beard 17 down


So please, in the future, be kind to your fellow DAZ-fiends and have a nice day!

Ok countrygirl4ya, you have a qualifying render. A nice action going on there and it is girls, yay!
One thing though, one of the requirements of the freebie contest is that if the site requires an account to download the freebie then we need to indicate that in our list. I use an asterisk but you can use anything you want to denote registration is required to obtain the files. I just love Terry’s work. Some really nice outfits.
Check your PMs for your entry prize and welcome to the contest. Hope you will play with us for many moons.

Wow!  First off, welcome to Madness, Inc otherwise known as the DAZ forums.  You’re obviously familiar with the way this place works and have your straight jacket on order. 

Second, coming banging in with an entry right off is a new and cool way to introduce one’s self.  And with such an entry, too!  Action on the right, suspense on the left.  How’s the bad guy going to react to the new developments?  How much times does he have?  While I’m not a big fan of comics - er, graphic novels - this makes me want to see the next panel. 

From what I can see, you definitely got it right.  grin

Thanks alot, I’m not a big fan of comics either but my husband said I should enter. But thanks again grin
