Here are a couple of quick renders I did trying out Dimension Theory’s new HDR Pro-Sets (originally posted in the dedicated thread).

It just so happens I was doing a dino render because I wanted to play with the stuff I picked up at Rendo during Dinoraul’s 40% off sale.  I’m calling it “Tastes Like Chicken”.

I picked up the Ornitholestes, the Kaprosuchus and his tree set.  The two running guys in this render are the Ornitholestes.  I used three of the trees from the tree set and mixed them in with Stonemason’s “Return to the Enchanted Forest”.

My stab at the theme.  It isn’t the best, its more artsy than theoretically possible (or, to Tropers. Making Paleontologists Cry), it really diverged from my original plans. and I dedicate it Lost in a Lost World because I’m a Moody Blues nut. raspberry

The thing that took up the most time creating this was the fur.  I spent most of a day and a half tweaking it, and I still got a couple errant strands there.

Hope this doesn’t offend too many Carrara nuts. raspberry

Took me a bit of time to find it again to be honest as I had lost it amongst the hundreds of images I have created over the years, only having tracked it down off one of the on-line galleries that I had posted it to.  smile  Looking at it I could probably do a better job of it now.

The snow on the ground was a simple Vue terrain with a snow material applied. The falling snow was done with brushes from Ron’s Winter Collection (at various sizes to simulate depth) and a zoom filter applied for motion (wind blowing from behind the camera) with the foot prints and kicked up snow also post work.

As for the dino’s they’re a scaled down DinoRaul Cryolophosaurus scaled down with a bump or displacement map applied.

Very cool images.  I thought this was going to be a thread complaining about people still using Poser 4 technology.  Dinosaurs are much more fun.  grin

I love dinosaurs.  (My credit card may never recover from Rosity’s recent Dinoraul sale.) 

I wish more Poser dinosaurs included feathers, or at least an option for them. Also, I’d like to see some textures for Dinoraul’s Microraptor and Archaeopteryx models that reflect the latest findings, that their feathers were glossy black, like a crow’s.

Lol the thread title is a play on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “The Land that Time Forgot” and “The People that Time Forgot” part of his Caspak series of books that feature a lost world with dinosaurs and primitive humans.
