First of all it's been such a pleasure to have been able to work with all these great new features! This release is game changing in more ways than one. Thanks Pixologic for such a great product and for allowing me to be apart of the process! =D
Here's a comp using several render passes from R2. The new lighting systems and HDRI implementations are incredibly powerful!
Here's a little tutorial showing the process for the render:
The Insert Brushes compliment Dynamesh very well. Drawing the insert brush on a Dynamesh will simply add to it, however when you use the ALT brush you can cut away from the mesh. I created a few mechanical insert brushes I'd like to share with everyone:
NOTE: I recommend when using these brushes that you have the Dynamesh resolution set to a higher resolution. Usually something above 450 works well. I consider these brushes to be more "finishing moves" to add the final detail to a model. Also play around with the polish feature of Dynamesh, as it will produce a very different result!
