Not all of us remember Wham. I do, but I’m not sure I want too.

Wham, is that close to the thud I get when my club lands ?

And this convo is seriously derailing Jake’s thread. Sorry Jake.

Back to the normal prgram now.

No, its kind of funny. Which character looks like George Michael? The one on the left or the Harley Davidson one?

I don’t know about this George Michael character, but the one on the Harley image looks like my brother used to when he was younger, and riding HDs only he was much slimmer in the body. He was never the sporty or body building type, only thing he ever did was ride bikes (Pedal cycles) when he was young and then onto Bikes a soon as he was old enough to hold a licens. He still is a biker,

Also looks a little like my younger son a few years ago, again he is a lot slimmer though, but he always did look like his Grandad, as did my Bro look like his Dad.

I never thought to use Daz this way.  Opens up a whole new world of opportunities.  :-D Brilliant renders, by the way.

Turned an experiment with the new football uniform I bought a week ago. Turned it into a Sports Illustrated magazine cover.

Here is another one I turned into a National Geographic Magazine cover. This was hard to figure out what it could be, but it seems to fit NG cover exactly.

He looks like he is not keen on what he did find under his mansion, if that is Dr Mike on the cover.

I love seeing your “Ads”, keep them coming.

I have to admit, i rushed the NG cover. I will see if i can add “what” he found under his mansion.

How long did that take to render. Bryce is notorious for slow glass renderings.  Now i know how you make yor letterings. I have illustrator but haven’t learned how to use it. I only know photoshop right now.

Hi Jake, Bryce is notorious for slow renderings regardless of what’s being rendered. LOL
I did that picture last year and if I remember correctly, it took between 45 minutes to an hour to render.
It was rendered at a relatively small size though and using the most basic render settings… That plus the simplest of lighting set ups can shave valuable time off renders.

As for using Illustrator, if you’ve got it, it’s well worth investing some time to learn.
I tend to use what ever does what ever job I’m doing best, so really most of the time I add words to my renders in Photoshop.
But mostly when I’m designing real packaging and labels I use Illustrator so it seemed the best solution in that situation.

Illustrator also has some basic 3D mapping functionality. So you can design your label/package etc and then map it on to basic 3D shapes you’ve created in Illustrator using extrusion of 2D shapes and rotation of linework (like a lathe).

This whole ad including all the product was done in Illustrator (apart from the photo montage in the center of the board and on the box which were put together in Photoshop first).

45 minutes is not long. All my renderings using reality plugin take 5 to7 hours to render.  I used to use bryce until i got daz studio. I learned how to do 3d with bryce when i was young, i used this daily. Now that i discovered e-on vue, bryce is limited to me.

I have been using photoshop for 10 years. I thought i could learn illustrator since it seems similar to photoshop but its totally different. I tried learning it but i gave up. How did you learn how to use it?

I’ve been using Adobe Illustrator for 20 years, I just taught myself originally (it was a much more simple application back then), but working in many professional environments I picked up a lot from other people too. Now I work on my own usually from home so I’m back to experimenting with new features by myself, but as I spend nearly 100% of my awake time in front of the computer using these programmes, I get a lot of practice. grin

Bryce rendering… yup again it’s practice with render settings, lighting set ups and materials that can reduce render times.
I’ve done renders that have taken days to complete. Vue renders things very quickly from my limited experience of it.
When I first downloaded Vue (the most basic free version with no extra modules) I was very impressed. But then as I started to work out the cost of the additional modules to really make it sing and dance, I couldn’t justify spending that amount of money.

It would be a different kettle of fish altogether If I got a good paying animation job to do, It’d be high on my priority list to purchase then.
