3d Work Appetizer

O.k, so as every blogger knows, it's imperative to try to stretch out what you have for as long as possible, so for today's 3d post I'm only going to share three images. I tried to scale these so they fit my blog a bit better (and they do!) but they overhang a bit. Oh well.  See what happens when I don't scale them correctly.

This first one was made awhile back (in Cinema 4d) because I needed a new desktop background (for my dual monitor set-up). This is made up of text splines extruded to make them 3d. The grass is made using the fur plug-in. There is also a very slight depth of field lens being used. (Evident in the blurred horizon line.)

For the full size image, go here. (Warning: 3360 x 1050 resolution) I highly recommend viewing the full size image to truly appreciate the grass.
Approximate render time: 1-2 hours



This next one I actually made today (in 3ds Max) just for you guys! The word "BLOGGER" was arbitrary chosen and made using the same method described above; however, as you might notice, it has a hole running through it. This hole is actually fairly complex and made using the Boolean function. The pills are simply the 'capsule' primitive with a mirror-like material applied to them. The 'pipe' that is twirling around is simply a spline with a circle primitive 'lofted' to it. If any of that made sense to you, congrats! You understand this better than most people. What you see below if full size, it would take days to render at a high resolution. The long render time is due the multiple reflections and the quality settings I had it set at.
Approximate render time: 3 hours






Also, those of you familiar with Toribash might appreciate the following. It's a render I did (in Cinema 4d) for a clan's group picture. I would like to point out that I DID NOT model nor rig the characters, but did arrange the composition and make the render.
Due to the quality lighting and blurred reflections, this one took fairly long to render.
Approximate render time: 3 hours

  2. @Fwission: Oops, I forgot to include that, I'll update in a second. The first and last one is Cinema 4d, and the middle one is 3ds Max 2010. Glad you like it.

  10. Impressive. :) I never got the hang of 3DS Max, it was a bit confusing. C4D was more user-friendly, IMO. I think the first picture would've been really nice if you used the same glossy effect on the text just like the second pic. Maybe some clouds, too. :D Other than that, keep doing what you're great at! ^^

  19. I hate to sound repetitive here, but the blogger one kicks ass. And thanks for including the Render Time, that really tells you how much goes into these. Don't forget next time as well. :D
