    LOL I can get a bit obsessive at times I think. I just spend the whole evening on making this bass from this product https://www.daz3d.com/bass into a usable iray fish.

    Its not perfect but it turned out much better and all that becaus I want to put it into  a fischtanke in my story wher nobody will ever look at the details.

    That's one glittery fish :D Perhaps not ideal for close ups (although.. who cares if it's not an existing species?), but should work fine as a detail in the background. 

  • so muh prettier then the original, and even if the details won't stand out in a whole scene a poorly shaded one would stand out - and not in a good way, so time well spent.

    Here come the fish in action, as mentioned they will play a minor role but they make eloquent conversation...

    Fishtank concept for my story, the lady is one of the law enforvers in this setting. All these systems are supposed to be connected: Algae-farm Krill-tanks and Fish-tanks. This was pieced together from a lot of different sets and items, the tank is an oversized drinking glass for example.

    rendered in Iray, not for very long as its only concept art again

    Love your fishtank! Nicely done.

  • Very cool and lovely thinking out of the box!  DeathbyCanon is right, if they were done badly it would stand out.  They look great in the tank.

    Thank you both a lot! I have been doing some thinking outside the box lately to get the parts for my story together, I hope I still have the drive when i get to render the actual story bits.

    Here is somethign that surprised me yesterday when i downloaded the classic side part hair and put it on Clarke she turned to an all business lady there, I had to go some further with that so this render happened.

  • Very cool fish tank.  Your fish looks much better in the water at a distance.  Nice.  :)

  • Love that the tank is an oversized drinking glass! Your "mash ups" blow my mind! 

    And Clarke is adorable in that short hair

    yes

    // the forum needs more smileys... unless there's a way to use custom ones like @ dA?? //

    And I was going to suggest giving the fish some motion blur... and then I saw it says Iray. There's no support for motion blur in DS there yet, or is there?

    You can copy pase pretty much everythinf into this forum but its not supporting the general code, so image

    Motion blurr would be something I really wish I could have for Iray but no not yet. It would be perfect for the fishies, so porbabyl something for postwok in future parts

     

    I'm glad the mix of bits and pieces worked out so far :D

    I#ve been experimenting with something I consider using as part of ma Intro Page for the story. Its still rough around the edges with the squares from different layers visible and for the complete thing I want to populat the place more but I was wondering how others perceive this thing

  • Its a striking image, and I like the gradient look on the cut outs as well.  Are you keeping them like this or doing something else to them?  I really kind of like them like this...

    Thank you so much Sonja, here is the next step I'm making with this, still need to get rid of the layers edges, added some more people and a very light green tint to the greyscale. Then I made the foremost a bit more recognizable. My idea is to add some intro text on the left side and make a transition to a face closeup on my main char ( that will hide part of the legs from the front people, probably using bokeh for the transition) kind of elongating the panel. Over on Webtoons they have that long format where you can scroll down to read like a chapter and I like that concept very much. It gives more options on transitions and connections than the page bound format.

    The thing with Webcomics is that you need to catch the interest with the first page so I really want that to be something people get hooked on and want to see where it goes

    Oh I really like where you are going with this!  very cool!

    And the portrait is stunning!

  • deathbycanondeathbycanon Posts: 1,227

    That portrait is beautiful! The eyes are amazing. Super cool cutouts too, neat concept.

    This is an awesome design idea. It looks very modern =) Should work to grab the audience.

  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 5,372

    Thanks a lot everyody! I'm kind of excited about all this and wish I had everythign in place to go for publishing, but alas still lots of preparations...

    busy writing script... its tedious though... all these scenes to make a sense and put them into the right order and plugging plotholes.. but not to know if anybody will even like it.... wuhaaaa.. runs off panicking

  • IceDragonArtIceDragonArt Posts: 12,513

    No panicking!  One step at a time and it will all come together!

  • Brave soul!  I'm impressed you are trying it out.  :)

  • Worlds_EdgeWorlds_Edge Posts: 2,075

    Your crowd render is unique and awesome :)  Good luck with the script writing, may the words and ideas flow!

  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 5,372

    Thanks everybody for the encouragement. I will carry on and yes on step after another sounds like a perfect good plan at that...

    The words and ideas are there, in abundance, to put them down is one thing and to sort them into a meaningful plot another, and at long last will be the fun part of putting them into renders.

    I'm glad you like my crowd, I was rather surprised it actually turned out the way I wanted it to look :D

    Somebody will ;D

    Would checking out some resources on narrative help ease your panic? =)

    I've read up quite a lot about it, so in therory I'm prepared. I am writing a lot, its just kind of more work intensive than I expected surprise

    But I have an outline for the story and the detailed outline for chapter 1 is put together, I have to go over that again probably several times.  I started into the detailed outline for the other chapters, though I want to see if chapter 1 hits off, It could be concluded with the end of chapter one, I don't want to invest too much time before I get some feedback

    and I started on the transcript for chapter one. Whenever I scene is hitting my brain, so I can put it out and sort later.

    And in the meantime I'm collecting and create stuff to be used in DS as from what I can do in DS I sometimes have to rearrange a scene to make it work. If I cant pull a view the way I planned and I get to know the characters better and can determine better how they will act

    ( got a lot for side characters in the sale today, that was great!)

    So you're going to be publishing it WIP-style, not when it's all finished?
