    Default Pixie Trickster

    Hey Guys and Gals!

    Thought it would be fun to participate. I wanted to make the Pixie Trickster from the world of Rackham, I do think he would fit in nicely for Halloween. I have been wanting to create this guy for a long time and now I have a reason

    Everything is dynamesh exept for the knife which is shadowbox. next I will pose him and start detailing him. Hope you all like it

    Peace

    thanks guys,

    So many cool creations in this challenge. As I wrote in a previous post that is now gone, I don't know if I broke the rules by compositing the renderpasses in photoshop. Anyway here is a small workflow for the render and composit.

    peace

    Hi,

    just posting a version that was my intension to start with, but I could not get the glow effect in zbrush to work, and there was no other solution so the end result was black eyes and mouth. This image is the same but I went in and painted the fire in photoshop, this is nicer I think but rules are rules

    peace

    Hey ethanashton!

    I tried that but the lighting casts shadows on the paint which sort of kills the idea. I wanted the fire to really glow, I tried the glow mat but it only renders i best render and not bpr. I wish there was a feature like the translusent feature but for fire and glow... Anyway, thanks for the sugestion and input

    Peace

    Default Can BPR Render Glow

    The interior of the pumpkin is the ColorizeGlow Material, with glow radius and amount set to the max and the colour set to a warm 247, 157, 0. The glow Material's diffuse is set to 100 and the diffuse curve set so that there are only two curve points, one at the top left and the other at the top right of the curve graph window. Specular is set to zero. These settings ensured that the interior of the pumpkin was entirely free of shadows.

    The pumpkin is Best Rendered, then BPR rendered straight away. This gives you the glow and also the shadows and nice BPR shading that you want.

    The resulting glow is OK, but you can boost this by applying the BPR Glow Filter to the render as a post process. I set strength to 0.7, radius to 25 (the max) and Hue to 100, with the colour swatch being set to the same colour as my Material glow colour; 247, 157, 0.

    I figured it could be done but don't ask me how!
