  • Merry Christmas, UB.  Well done.  I downloaded the converted alien but have not tried working with it yet.

    Shlomi Laszlo - very innovative concept, working all the different Chinese elements in.

    So here's mine. I may still play with it a bit if time allows.

    "Elements of War (You Sank My Battleship!)"

    I used the Ocean primitive for the water and the Fire primitive plus Primovol Rising Smoke for the burning ship. The board is modeled in Carrara (the peg holes are just a texture made in Photoshop) and the ships are all from the included Carrara content. Lighting is an HDRI and I used the Distance Fog under Atmosphere to fade out the background. I threw the wineglass in just to fill in that big empty spot in the background; it's a spline object I made some time ago for another image and had saved in my object tray.

    Scene Setup

     

    Carrara Render

     

    Postwork

    In Photoshop I used a combination of the cutout and watercolor filters to get a less photorealistic effect, then used the stamp, cutout,and halftone filters to darken the shadows and add lines. I added a light green solid layer on top of that set to color mode at a low transparency to tone the whole image and then painted additional flame and smoke using some of Ron's brushes on top.

     

    Final

     

     

     

    excellent idea, love it, the post processing works a charm - thanks for the explanation

     

  • an overall view and five views from element to element.

    great idea - the treatment of each really shows off carrara - nice work ;0

    merry chrissie back - what kind of clouds are they ?- look very effective

    2. Creation, form the game: Exalted.

  • Thanks Diomede and HW.  This was not an entry.

    HW, the clouds are just long clouds from the object browser, set at 100% opacity.

  • thanks @shlomi laszlo  !

    @UnifiedBrain - thanks too, very effective, I always forget that they are in the objects browser!

    Run dinos run, that volcano is about to get a whole lot bigger....

    Still to add more dinos and some lava around the mouth of the volcano, might try Headwax's idea with metaballs.

    As long as they are Bull ants and not Fire ants !!!

    love the viewpoint in this, with the little dinosaurs running for their lives!

  • Thank you everyone for keeping the thread so active.  I always enjoy the dfferent perspectives Carrarists bring to a theme.  Way to go, Bunyip.  Volcanoes and rough seas, a very active interpretation!

    I will be trying to put something together for the carrara category of the "Its Raining Men" challenge in the Art Studio forum.  Put it off too long and then the holidays got in the way. In case I can't look in, have a great end-of-2018.

    Having fun using Multi-pass and the elements to come up with a render.

    Different Multi-pass options, was looking for a way to place the rain effect over post-worked lightning.

    PSP setup.

    Final render with postwork and using multi-pass

    Stuff from me, this uses Ocean (thing on top) and the foundtain particle - I also replicated small red fogs around the genesisi figure (thankls so much Alberto!! I can now use Genesis without filling up my harddrive)

    Used multipasses in post work for the first two. The last one is original render without post I was playing with the Parchment effect but failed...  the lighting is blowon out because I was interested in the Shadow Pass. The back two Geneisi figures are reflections

    Used VWD for the cloth drape and Carrara Rain Storm for the odd diagonal shafts and the water splashes
