Yes Jake I’ve been a graphic designer for about 30 years (since before computers were used!), I got into doing 3D work because I do a lot of packaging design and it’s handy to apply the flat design to a 3D model to present to clients… and of course 3D stuff is a load of fun to use and abuse to illustrate points in internet discussions too. smile

The discussion was on a UFO forum (that closed at the beginning of the year)... I’ll see if an archive of it exists and post a link later if it does.

Is Chewit a real product you did for a client? Was this in a real magazine or is this fake?

Here is another Daz ad I made just before Daz closed the gallery to update the site. This was a test render for the new Michael 5 I got that day.
The second one is actually my first attempt at a photo real image. It was part of my portfolio. It looks like a “got milk?” ad so I just added that part an hour ago to see how it looks.

Yes Chewits are a real product. smile

And the advert design was one that I presented to the client but sadly wasn’t picked for publication in the end.

You’ve got some good realism in your skin textures and lighting in your renders BTW. good stuff.

What a great thread, Jake, Savage, I especially like the look of those movie posters, very nice - I love the look you got to them :-)

Anyway, posted to get notifications and to ask if you have any good “Apple Greed” type stuff?
If ever a parody needed to be popular it is that one, so you must have one - even if you’re an Apple customer.

I actually am a Mac fan. I have owned or used almost every Apple product ever made. I even made a Powerpoint presentation of the history of the iPod. I actually have personal jokes about Apple and Microsoft but never tried to make a parody using Daz Characters. Besides, isn’t it too early to make a Parody like this after Steve Jobs passing away?

Same here Jake, I’ve also been a Mac owner for the last 20 odd years (my first one was the IICX which had a massive 40mb hard drive and 2mb of RAM and cost me £2200 second hand!!). I’ve still got it and it still works though (not that I ever use it).

Of course that doesn’t stop me from parodying Apple at all… And I’m not sure that Steve’s untimely death is really reason to prevent parodying of Apple, though I would say it’s not in good taste to directly parody him, his illness or his death and in that respect, please bear in mind that I made this one long before he died.

Wow, what haven’t you made into an ad? You seem to have a library of these things. The first Apple ad is hilarious. Did you do anything using Daz characters?

Lol, yes, some people would say I have too much time on my hands. smile
I guess it’s the end result of when I’ve finished designing stuff for work, I design more stuff just for laughs.

No, I realise we’re getting a bit off topic, but I haven’t done any Apple related stuff using 3D characters.

In response to the iWantone ad, here’s an ad from people who certainly do not want one.
Exactly the same style as yours, opposite opinion.

The first one is an illustration for a book I’m writing. Since he had a soda on the truck hood, it was re-imagined as a coca cola ad.

The Second one is the inside article of the GQ magazine cover I made.

The third one is just a random ad I made. Didn’t know what to do with it so I made it into a Harley Davison ad. Its kind of weird because if I printed out most of these ads and binder them together, it would make a real Magazine, minus 50 or so pages.

This one, the figure has a strange ressemblance to someone I know, well facially anyway, when he was younger, and indeed riding HDs
