What's this? A Tako Render thread? No way!

Yes way!


Oddly enough, my muse took some time off from 3D for about a month before slowly oozing her way back.
I'm probably rendering again because I am waiting for my old camera to sell now that I have my nikon.
So, rather than worry if it's going to sell, I will pour my jitteriness into some renders.
Let's see if my muse will keep it up or not.


************************************


Anyways, here is my first render for this brave new forum.


Image rendered in LuxRender using the Reality plug-in for DAZ Studio.


Render time: 48 minutes with two versions using different focal points and f/stops rendering simultaneously.


Blended the two renders together in Photoshop Elements with some other minor postwork.


In the Reality plug-in window, very little tweaking was needed for the materials used. I set the little floating robot's "eyes" to blue glass. I set the red LEDs in the BG to lights. Some other minor adjustments.


The rest of the lighting is one Image Based Light free from HDRLabs.com/sibl and one curved "meshlight" behind the camera which is essentially a glowing plane with bent sides.

    yup, a really good distraction. :P

    No matter how smart a man is. If an attractive female were to say something or distract them they may not get that what she really is! An evil, manipulative, succubi that just wants a good meal. Or she could just be an evil mastermind that wants to take you out... Granted she could also be just a sexy woman with a bat clasp that likes the bright outdoors. :P

    Sure the only safe bet with this type a woman is to just not be attracted to attractive women with bat clasps. :P

    That skin, it's Elena from Rendo right? Or is it Ireland. Either way, I'm caught in the trap. ;)

    It's Dublin from Renderosity. :-P

    I just put up a force field whenever they're about. Sure, it also cuts off my oxygen so I can't talk properly and most likely go into seizures, but it keeps me safe. :-)
