New Rendering – “Afternoon Pines”

My latest 3D rendering!  The foreground landscape is a Vue “metablob” with fractal displacement applied to it.  The figurine standing on top is Daz3D’s “Genesis” figure.

Render time was 1h:45m:20s

New Rendering – “Merry Christmas”

Merry Christmas everyone!

New Rendering – “Mountain Vista”

New Vue 10 Infinite rendering.   I would go to church here!  (Of course, I would be staring and paying more attention to what was outside the window!!)

New Rendering – “Ocean Storm”

New Vue 10 Infinite rendering.  My second attempt at using Vue’s “storm” settings on the water.  This is the first time I’ve used birds in a scene as well.  All-in-all, I think this is one of my best renders to date!

Render time: 2h:16m:36s

New Rendering – “Eve of the Apocalypse – The end of the world”

New Vue 10 Infinite rendering.  My first attempt at using “storm” settings on the ocean.  Inspired by all of the “end of the world” shows on Discovery Channel today.   Dec 21st, 2012 is just a year away!!  🙂

Render time: 3h:11m:11s

New Rendering – “Lighthouse”

New Vue 10 Infinite rendering.

A lone lighthouse stands watch over rough waters.  I’m very pleased with how this one turned out!  🙂

Render time 1h:27m:32s

New Vue 10 Rendering – “Cave”

My first production rendering from Vue 10 Infinity.

Looks like a really great place to visit if it was real!  🙂

Render time was 2h:17m:42s

New Rendering – “Rocky Beach”

Figurine is a Daz Studio 4 Pro Genesis “unimesh” Figure. Clothing and hair I modeled and textured myself.

Rock formations are Vue metablobs with displacement mapping applied to produce the lumps and bumps, and a rocky texture to give it a rocky look.

Scene rendered in Vue 9.5 Infinite – render time 41 minutes. . .

All-in-all, I think this turned out really well. I’m especially impressed with the Daz 3D Genesis figure – it poses extremely well with very little “pinching” of the mesh – under the arms, elbows, and knees – like you sometimes see with humanoid 3D models.

New Rendering – “School Girl”

First rendering using Daz3D’s new Genesis figure. Also the first render since upgrading Vue Infinite to version 9.5

Render time: 243 Minutes.

New Rendering – “Ocean Crossing”

Just a simple single model rendering (Spanish Galleon model, cloned) using Vue 9 Infinite.  Unfortunately I forgot to jot down the render time on this, but it must have been somewhere around 4.5 hours.  It takes a long time to process the “God rays” – volumetrics of the sky and clouds – and the reflections on the waters surface.  Hope you enjoy it.


New Rendering – “Maiden”

My first work using some elements of ZBrush 4   Figure is DAZ’s Victoria  posed in Poser 7, imported into ZBrush 4 for sculpting – I “bulged” the skin around the belt around the models hips, belly, and back to make it look like the belt was slightly cutting into her flesh.  The clothing and hair I created entirely in ZBrush 4.  I’m still learning ZBrush – it has a LOT of modeling tools and it’s a little daunting.  Finally I imported the model into Vue 8.5  and rendered.  Render time was approximately 21 mins. . .
