    This is my version of a classic Gary Larson "The Far Side" cartoon.  The characters are all Daz original generation 3, and I plan to use them all in a graphic novel.  Here we see a bit of how each one reacts to the world.

    The protagonist is called Herk (the freak character).

    The workflow was basically Carrara>GMIC (Lylejk filter)>Comic Life (for captions only)>PSE (for bottom title only)>Fotosketcher (Pencil sketch 1filter).  I did some stuff with Ron's backgrounds, which looked really cool, but ultimately decided it looked too complicated for a cartoon.

    kitbashed the parrot.... dunno why 3DU didn't add a cocky comb in the first place... maybe they will release a freebie add on for it.

    great illustrative effect on this

    I spent a few hours with the trial - what a wonderful program you have written!

     

  • HeadwaxHeadwax Posts: 8,939
    Hey, that is very nice of you!  However, I would like to give it a proper trial first, when I have the time to devote to it.  Probably will kick myself later, but it is what it is.

    Test it first. I'll give you raincheck.

     

    wow, that's beautiful

    Thanks HW!  Probably some luck involved.

    luck? = hard work and intelligence plus passion :)

     

    this is one for the present challenge

    used filter forge and waterlogue and photodonut for the post work

    I also rendered out many carrara passes including reflection so I had a lot of tools to work with in post (diffuse, colour, coverage, shadows, object passes etc)

    headwax,

    There's a vertical line on the right that appears to be a mirror, it runs through the entire image ... ?  At first I though it was a shadow in the area below.

    Since I love the subtle things in your work as well as your style, I am trying to understand how it works in the image or story.

    hey , nicely spotted, it's an example of lazyness I am afraid: :) I wanted more pictorial space on the right side to balance the composition so I flipped the edge to get that mirror effect - it only works when there is not much detail - so big fail for me :) !!!

     

    But I should tell you that there is an other dimension lurking just out of reach of the viewer... the Carrara 9 dimenssion :)

     

    thanks for the c and c too :)

    I was going to comment that it could be another dimension to the afterlife .... eeeek! devil

    I've spent plenty of time fixing stuff that probably no one will ever see. I think if I produced more work, I'd have to find a way to be quicker too.

    Maybe a lazy slip, but I had never considered the idea of flipping the edge to expand the size, so it was a big win for me!

    The edge flip didn't bother me, but I liked the landscape version better.  Awesome textures as usual.  It always impresses me that I can magnify any part of your image and it remains consistent and smooth throughout.

    Oh it's all about work flow as you know. I started flipping the edge thing for book covers when I didn't leave enough room for the text at the top. The Text Covers the Bad things :)

    thanks UB , that's very kind :) You could get around flipping the edge by doing a re render via - duplicate camera and move it slightly to right etc - 

    I like the closeup landscapoe version one better too

    'Out with the Old, in with the Old"

     

    Filter Forge, Topaz simplify - custom filter, water logue and Photodonut, plus a little hand painting to clean it up

    This is the old Bear that comes with Poser - it doent seem to have pose limits on it though - any clues welcome :)

     

  • DartanbeckDartanbeck Posts: 17,922

    Very nice!

    Hmmm... no limits, eh? I'll have to fire up my old copy of Poser 7 and see if mine has any.

  • HeadwaxHeadwax Posts: 8,939

    thanks Dart, yes from memory the Ram (?) behaves the same way (Thing with curly horns :) )
