love it. I'm always amazed when folks get such good renders from zbrush. I just can't figure it out myself. Can you give any settings/lighting/etc. that you're using here?
The only think I think it's missing is some specular to show off it's froggy wetness. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the composition, but it isn't terrible. Kind of reminds me of that old poster of the cat hanging onto the clothes line "hang in there!".
Anywho... good work.
You arent the only one mandella XD, I cant even make a decent render, people talk about Specularity renders, random Passes, and im like, wait, how do i do this in Zbrush? I wonder if in the wiki's they have such.. Do they?
maybe if u make the material of the frog a little more more glossy and that it reflects the enviroment it would fit perfect nicely done
Thank you for your replies. I am not a render guru, as I said before this is my first real project rendered in Zbrush. I try to pick up bits and pieces from others on this forum and through the tutorials on the wiki. Read birth tutorial, it gave me some insight. But there is no exact tutorial that gives you specific settings so you will have to go at it on your own by trial and error. A good start is to use the existing shader as a base and adjusting them as you go! One of the things I have problems recreating is subsurface scattering, which would have given the frog a more realistic touch. Hopefully I will figure that one out one day.
I used to render in Max but I have limited access nowadays and spend most of that time for base modeling. Have been looking at Modo as an alternative but all these packages are tough on the budget for a freelancer. Until then I will probably use Zbrush for my work and learn more about the engine.
Here is my render flow so far, I hope it helps!
I agree that it should be more glossy. Try to increase specular level.
hey bro thank you for the lil small walkthrough, but um When you color your model, isi t polypainting or texture base?.. because when i try to polypaint and i select the color, the whole model turns to the color I selected.. how come?
wow man thanks! =), but One thing i Cought was, that when you fill a model with a material, I cant paint another material over it.. strange. I'll keep messing arond witht he Fill and mRgb buttons! =D thanks bro!
Love your frog and want to use it
I have a job on the go.
Want to sell your model? Does your model come with bones so I'd be able to manipulate different poses and animate?
Want to sell your frog?
To your question of purchase. It never crossed my mind until now. The frog was modeled posed and created as a study and for this image only. I made the base mesh a long time ago in max where I posed it and exported to Zbrush. The rig was crude since I'm an illustrator and not animator!
So there are no bones or rig left, just the posed model!
