Always one to experiment with digital creations, here is another one. As I started to set this up, decided to use no backgrounds and just lighting. Since that looked kind of funky I put a rug in the scene and did not like that so I applied a mirror shader to the surface of the rug. I thought it worked really well. Even the bottom of the feet look like they’ve been walking around awhile.
I had rendered this as a 10×13 with 8330/10000 pixel size. When the render was done this morning I noticed a fine line across the image. At first I was bummed because this rendered while I was sleeping and I thought I’d have a great image in the morning. After really thinking about it, the thought crossed my mind that the line kind of made the image appear that it came out of the center of a magazine. So, I left it in. What kid in the days before the internet did not cover their walls with images from magazines? I know I did. Therefore that is the theme of this post. Well not sure about that either but it works but I like it nevertheless. 🙂
I have multiple cameras in this open scene and will share the settings. I have lots of tools but have been rendering in DAZ studio. It’s easy to setup, configure and work with many settings using Iray and PBR based images and settings go a long way towards more real looking final compilations. I still do a lot of work in my other programs like 3ds, Miya, and blender for different set parts. And, bring them in when needed.
Here is that magazine page. 🙂
