    Horo : very nice tunnel, beautiful fish eye effect. Madness to go inside for people with claustrophobia.

    My last entry : "After the bushifire".

    Very nice, AdBc...and so apt, too, as the current Amazon forests are being subject to such (intentional bushfires ??? etc.,).

    S Ray: Totally mad; reality is more mad than fantasy (often).

    Horo: That is a fantastic scary hallway. Wonderful fish-eye view.

  • @ ed3D: I'm looking forward to the final result.
    @S Ray: Violent. Well done and unfortunately very true.
    @Horo: Very good tunnel effect. Acts really menacing in this endless space.
    @ adbc: Very good work. Looks fantastic in this very successful light.

    Some fun and often poignant images. 

    I've really enjoyed viewing them…

    Here's my entry.

    Title “Nobody touches my dolly”

    Hallway and Genesis 2 stuff from DAZ. Posed in DS 4.6. A little modeling work done in Modo.

    Primarily illuminated by a single dome light and 2 radials for fill lighting.

    Rendered at 16 RPP, TA enabled. Just over 12 hours to render. Most of the reader time was due to dome lighting the trans mapped hair.

    Good luck to all and thanks for taking a look!

    ed3D - or the night brings bad dreams. Nicely done scene.

    akmerlow - haha, now that's a cool idea. Quite some people around. Well done.

  • adbcadbc Posts: 1,283

    ed3D : thank you. Great image, she looks scared about the night.

    akmerlow : great idea, lots of people. Nice scene.

  • Hi
    My picture is still rendering and I wanted to ask for a bit more time. I'm afraid I think I'll need still 12 hours. Thanks a lot.

  • mermaid010mermaid010 Posts: 2,877

    Dan Whiteside - cool idea and awesome render.

    ed3D - vey nice image, I agree she looks afraid.

    akmerlow - great idea, it is madness when Apple releases a new model.

  • mtnmenmtnmen Posts: 443

    @akmerlow... truly madness for sure... fun image... lots of crazy people

    So, if you allow corrections, here is an improved version:

    Now, more details:

    An idea came to me after my friend told me a story from his life. One day he was returning to work during lunch break and stumbled upon a big queue of people in front of clothing shop. Then several guys approached him and said that they will pay him if he'll wait for an hour in the queue until they return back. Of course, he refused. Also, he heard that some people were selling their places in queue for a huge price. All those people were in a line for new sneakers released by a well known sport clothes brand; and while those sneakers were expensive, price for places in queue was several times more than price of product itself. Madness! Then i remembered that behaviour is same every time new iDevice is being released, but ultimately it doesn't matter what exactly they are lining up for.

    What i used:

    City street is "Einkaufsstrasse" by Mausel at sharecg. When i sent it from DAZ to Bryce "as it is", it took around 3600 mb ram, which was awful! Then i followed an advice from SlepAlex and decided to change textures to Bryce-native materials. That helped hugely; also decided not to import elements that i wouldn't show in frame, so in the end city street with procedural materials made Bryce eating just 200 mb ram, which was certainly good enough. Materials i borrowed from pre-installed bryce library or some additional content packs, though slightly adjusted for different colours etc. I admit that my results look "outdated", like 90s render, hopefully in future i'll improve skills of choosing best materials or learn how generate realistic walls etc. myself. I went with most simple light and sky setup because i was getting very weird results with IBL etc. so i decided that it "works ok" in this simple but functional way.

    "Lowpoly People" is another freebie, downloadable from sketchfab, author is  Loïc Norgeot. They are 1500 polys with x1024 diffuse map, pretty lightweighted. Before adding them to scene, i experimented with methods of turning those five people into crowd - see my other thread for details. But unlike those population experiments, for this city scene i coudn't do crowd with random replicate (it didn't work with collision detection option for some reason), and instancing lab method didn't prove to be right tool either (as it lacks collision detection afaik). So i went into traditional way of manual copy paste, i mean, making instances, then more instances, then more instances, while moving here and there, to fill up the whole street. I also changed pivot (origin handle) for each person so i could freely rotate them (as their pivot was in some weird place after import). I got around 2000 people in scene, i guess, as result.

    Cars are freebies as well. The one in the centre of street is "Muscle Car" by Anders Lejczak (btw it seems like he used bryce... in early 00s, then moved) and two other cars are Celica GT by yomiuri. Found these models at poserdazfreebies wiki.

    OK     does anyone else need any more time?

  • akmerlowakmerlow Posts: 759

    Horo:
    "Mad Passage" - or maybe you are wizard or sorcerer or even elf yourself, and this is hotel where all fairy and legendary creatures live! So say "hi" to your neighbors in the morning!

    adbc:
    "After the bushfire" - this may sound inappropriately from me, but first impression i get from you picture is... pretty beautiful land. Only after reading title i payed attention to state of trees and ash on the ground.

    Dan Whiteside:
    “Nobody touches my dolly” - oh, never never never again! :o

    ed3D:
    "Here Comes The Night .. Sweet Dreams,  then" - nice expansion on idea.

    Electro-Elvis:
    "Hitmen Madness" - wow, the hunter becomes the hunted!
