    Default Harpie

    Hi all, Long time no post!

    This is a piece im working on for my new showreel.

    I started this with the same mesh I used on my Cardassian Woman Wip (which I will finish eventually) I tweaked it a little in Modo and then imported it into Zbrush for further modelling and detailing (the fun bit) After a while I ended up with this:

    I then began painting the colour map for the Harpie, which after a while looked like this:

    harpie_ZCLR.jpg


    Rendered with different light settings

    At this point I decided to take the plunge and see if I could render this model with a displacement map in Max. I've always been a Lightwave user and probably don't need to go into how hard it is to get good displacements in LW.
    So with my new focus on the game industry I've decided to learn Max

    Once in 3D Studio I added eyes and then produced a few renders in V-Ray

    And this which im reasonably happy with

    I should like to see you use some different colors in the lights. Try a warm color in the shadowpart to make the colors less uniform. Maybe you can give the parts where no bumps are some texture to make it more 'natural'. But you made a good start!

    Default Slightly Warmer light

    This is a new render with a slightly warmer light applied (the old ones did indeed look too uniform)
    Im still experimenting with different lights so expect updates soon

    I might change the eyes too
