    Maybe put a little extra light for the character in the scene.

    Thanks, that is something I do often in scenes when its overall dark but the character should be seen. For this one she was supposed to stay in the dark ;)

    ^ very cool! She looks a bit like a fashion illustration!

    (She does appear to be hovering, though cool)

  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 4,607

    @Hylas thanks a lot and you are right, she`s floating which has me baffled. I used one od the Portrait light ready sets and I had her moved up and down but the shadows kept being at the same distance from the shoes. I have to admit I´m not often using those ready sets so I might have missed tos thing I could change to avoid that, and i needed it done by now so I didn't do postwork or anything, but if you have an idea besides postwork to revent that, I´m all ears.

    Perhaps ground position is on automatic instead of manual (in Render Settings -> environment)?
    That's the only thing I can think of...

    Thanks a lot Hylas, It`s an idea I will try once I`m back at my rendering mashine

    A simple strip of duct tape

    copied here from what I posted in another thread so I can look it up myself some time later

    Linwelly said:

    something like this?

    Its a primitive plane (30 cm reduced to 21% on the x scale)

    added a mesh shader preset (in this case from FSL tactital shaders iray Ireay) added metallicity and gloss plus a top coat (weight 1 in light grey with high refelctivity and top coat thin film)

    I'm sure there are several other options thinking about shaders.

    For flexibility I added a d-former, in oder to do that I made the plane with 100 divisions. If you need it straight there is no need for d-former


  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 4,607

    now let be blow out the dust on this thread a bit *hack, hack* dang I keep forgetting to put some of my works in here

    now here are some from my latest installement of Taiduo which I like very much as stanalone as well:


    which was almost in time for CNY :D


  • LinwellyLinwelly Posts: 4,607

    and then there are the renders for Lola Llanes render a month, this one was for the hard annd soft challenge and I really like the result very much, I'm gion to try and turn this into a book cover

    and fresh out of the press

    something that is completely out of my line for the Hot and cold challenge

    loves to stick to itself, like usual

    safe as scene subset
