Horo, interesting, interesting and interestingly quick!
Silverdali, great render, if you did this in glowing neon it would also pass for a Tron-esque scene.
IceScribe, the genesis figure render looks really good. The harsh lighting suits it very well. The second image I think maybe would benefit from a little more fill light. In the third, for some reason, the pots look almost as big as the houses in the background. Which in turn makes the mountains look rather like hillocks.
Jay, fantastic render of the droplets on the leaves.
GG, they look dark on my monitor too, although I prefer the one with the bluer hues… Maybe you need to calibrate your laptop screen?
Dan, what is this thing called “sleep”? Only fooling, I let my CPU do all the hard work. Wonderful render, great control exercised over materials and lighting, your trademarks certainly. The figure looks very natural - something I’ve yet to achieve.
Dave, yes your version of GG’s render looks much better on my monitor. The product shots look excellent too. I like the synchronism between your Buffalo tape and GG’s render. My only criticism is the DOF in the top render is a little bit “uncomfortable” for viewing. Just slightly out of kilter for some reason.
Here’s what the computer was doing last evening while I was watching Al Murray http://al-murray.com/ at the Embassy in Skegness.
