Render BPR Background Image Plane/Object Without Scene Shadow Or Render Shadow Map
Rendering A Background Image Plane Or Object In A BPR Render Scene That Does Not Receive Shadows From Subtool Scene Objects Nor Generates A Shadow Render Map Pass For That Surface. A Boozy Tip. This tip I find can ensure a better edge integrity between scene objects and a bg image plane in a single render rather than compositing a scene render with a background in photoshop using a mask render. This is also useful for edge integrity in fibermesh renders as well as controlling shadows on scene elements. The recipe is simple: Ensure all your subtools other than the background image plane have been material filled. To Material fill all visible polypaint subtools quickly use ZPLugins Menu>SubTool Master>Fill >Fill Only Material. To material fill any texture mapped subtools>select your material> select subtool>Tools>Texture Map>Fill Mat With the bg image plane subtool selected >Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >Switch on BPR Transparent Shading and ensure that BPR Visibility =100 (you do not need to switch on Transparency settings in the render palette). Select an active material which will become your material choice for the bg image plane that has not been material filled. Standardly you might choose Flat Color or other materials with different diffuse qualities to dim or brighten your background as required. NB: Flat Color Material as your active material will not produce shadowing on the non material filled bg image plane but it will create a render shadow map in your render passes - therefore even with flat color as the active material you will need to switch on Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >Switch on BPR Transparent Shadow >BPR Visibility =100 If you're using extreme perspective you may have to adjust the subtool bg image plane to suite your view accordingly. Finally it may be helpful to know that you can also control shadows density on one object by another by going to Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >and adjusting the BPR Shadow slider to adjust the shadow density cast by the occluding object. Hope it helps, Yours etc, Boozy

Fool's End
Created and textured in ZBrush and originally rendered as an early mood test in Carrara some 8 years ago, I decided to revisit and complete this piece in ZBrush 2.5D. Markers were used for positioned scene texturing across multiple layers as well as zapplink saved views for projection master painting in relation to view . The shadow map renders from Carrara I recycled to use as stencils in ZBrush to paint the ground shadows in 2.5D. Thank your popping by and thank you Dear Jochin, Metin, Ronald and Ian for your most heartening hellos. Ian!! I was just admiring your work two nights ago from a folder I found from those myspace days and had been talking to Mrs Boozy about your work. It's therefore a fated delight that you are here! I remember back then you were interested in using 3D for guiding shadow integrity within your painting. If you need any help with ZBrush do not hesitate to message me here. All being well my next ZBrush piece will be pretty and and a little bit girly :-) Yours etc, Boozy

Good Things Come To Those That Wait
'Good Things Come To Those That Wait' This ZBrush 2.5D piece was first posted on this forum many moons ago - a low resolution relic from the salad days of 56k modems. The latter part of the year is a good time for looking backward as well as ahead and having recently scribbled a memorandum with regard creative avenues I wish to explore further with Zbrush for the year ahead I realized that this early 2.5D piece hinted at a regressive itch I intend to scratch progressively. As artists we like to imagine we are moving forward but looking backwards we see that our beginnings are always worthy of reconnection. Yours Auld Lang Syne-ingly with best wishes, Boozy

Night Alive
A 2.5D geometry painting. 'Night Alive' First began during a sea storm that raged overhead in February - reopened and completed this December. Drawn with a spindly spiky geometry brush whilst adjusting the width and depth of the brush depending on stroke mode. Much use of drawing multiple strokes without lifting the mouse then pressing w (move mode) to transform and or snapshot copies. yours seasonly, Boozy Thank you Ronald for for your convivial spoons of kindness from which I have supped this past year. "With our thoughts we create the world" indeed. Metin many thanks with cinnamon sprinkles and a liberal sugar dusting. On a seasonal note, it thrills me that in Holland Santa Claus departs by boat via Rotterdam once all his errands are done. Back he sails to his art nouveau apartment in Madrid for fine wines and the welcoming arms of his toymaiden harem. Erik , thank you most kindly and some Carroll for Christmas too , perfect. I'll take Carroll over wassailing any day.

Duck a l'Orange
Thanks Metin and good morning to you Sir. I found this little jpeg of a piece created from way back when i.e uploaded to this very forum on a 56k modem many moons ago. I'm guessing it was done in ZBrush2 but maybe V1 I cannot rightly remember. As I do remember it was one of the first pieces where I knuckled down and created something a little more finished. It ended up being printed in a Japanese design magazine. It's been lovely to find this picture because I can remember being really excited that I could use material settings to look like watercolor paper surfaces. I'm guessing looking at it now there's also gradient tints with a drag-rectangle stroke , drop shadow tricks , the ducks I guess were planar mapped on to a mesh created from an alpha. What I can see is the essence of my work beginning in this little jpeg. Just like the ducks I keep coming back to the beginning it seems.
