Future developements

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I thought I could post my progress on the Future competition image. I managed to spend some time on it today but only on the nature part of it. I found a sky image I really liked, edited it a bit so it would fit the background and set up the lighting with Environment light -> sky texture. Added one point light for now, I will fiddle with lights more if needed when I make the interior.

The tree week in Nature Academy is a bit different. For the rocks and grass the recipes were rather straight. But trees are more complex matter and I didn’t perceive the tutorial like a clear cut solution, more like a starting point as people try to get more realism, pruning the tree to their computer capability and looking at other tree-creation software. Fortunately my computer handles the more heavy settings and didn’t crash at all, just slows down at certain points.  I managed to follow the tutorial, but straying from its exact settings to get a personal image seems more difficult than with the first ones.

Same scene, but after some feedback received, I got the depth of field out (I was too keen on testing compositing stuff):


Don’t worry, I won’t be posting every new rock and weed I blend, I just needed to get the right version online instead of the blurry one.
