    Combining two different sets gives ...

    Time travel

    Only two lights in this scene, an UberSoftLight (slightly tweaked) and a "raytracing" Distantlight pretending to be the sun.

    Ditto, great job Sedor! Akhbour, feel free to use my skyspheres, they're free.

    This one uses Jack's Curator Aquarum. DS4.5Pro render, postwork in GIMP. Larger version in my deviantART gallery here.

    Was rotating around looking for a good camera angle...

    Yea, it was an issue with the groups, rather than the actual geometry.. which is probably why it slipped though net.

    Hey Jack, a quick (tech) question if you don't mind - for these sorts of issues (and constructing models in general), do you maintain your master scenes/models/assets in some form of configuration control system (eg RCS, CVS, SVN, Hg, or whatever), or is there no real need to maintain a "development trail" and you just use something like datestamped files/directories? (forking off copies when "drops" are made to external locations).

    The reason I ask is I'm starting to get swamped in my own assets (diffuse, AO, baked textures, various iterations of hires and lores geometry, target platform files, drops to the customer, etc etc X), and I was curious what you do under these circumstances. Is there a "Make Order" button, just beside the "Make Art" button you have on your desk there? ;-)

    That's actually a really good question - first time I think anyone's actually asked, too.

    I personally don't use anything other than files/dirs. I have toyed with the idea of using SVN, but I think that only really would be worthwhile for huge projects.

    I have the main dev folder, where I keep all the master files (PSD's, templates, etc) and then once the product is complete have an 'upload' folder which contains the DS/Poser stuff, promo artwork etc. I also use the same file suffixs, so it's easy for me to know whats what in the dev folder.

    I do use a few homebrew scripts to pull stuff in and out of Runtimes, too.. but that's about it.

    Hope that helps!

    How interesting - given the quantity of your output, I would have thought you'd had _some_ organisational "secret" in there to keep everything under control... thanks for the insight! (^_^)n.

    (maybe my issue is that I'm approaching my graphic assets a little too much like source code - ie version#s, datestamps, historical copies etc... perhaps I should just chill and do Jack and let it all "flow" -_-... ;-). SVN et al would generally be appropriate for long-term multi-developer projects, I'd imagine - as a convenient way of sharing "asset trees" amongst geographically (and chronally) dispersed creators...).

    Yea, I dare say you'd need it in bigger dev houses, but here there is only little old me.

    My source files generally have iterations built into them (different layers and such..) but nothing fancy. While it's a nice idea, I think the time spent actually managing the files would be proportionally 'too much'. Keep it simple, and all that.

    Thank you! And this got an Honorable Mention in the November 15th PlatClub Inspiration contest -- thanks again Jack!

    Hey, if anybody wants to try out the lighting I used it's the light array shown in the Simple Sunshine and SkySphere tutorial, with all the fill lights on Intensity 32.0%, and the Sunlight on Shadow Type: Raytraced, Shadow Softness: 1.0%, Shadow Bias 0.50, and Intensity: 80% -- that's the example below on the left. (Actually I did two "final" renders, one with the vines and one without. Then I opened them in GIMP as two different layers with the vine-filled render on top, applied a white Layer Mask to the top layer, and blackened the mask where there were a couple of inconvenient vines behind her feet and over her head.)

    On the right is the same render run through the postwork steps shown in the Bright Sunlight Mini-Tutorial, with the Saturation Overlay layer at 100% opacity, one Contrast Mask layer at 100% opacity, and one Contrast Mask layer at 32% opacity.

    Now that you say it, it could be that or one of those mornings after, where you only want to die and your wife is constantly repeating the things you've done while drunken! ^_^
