Here is a rendering of a humpback whale, I modeled for a project at work.
Modeling is done in Lightwave. Rendering in 3d Studio Max.

you can see a little animation at
http://www.dennis-dv.com/temp/wojo/wojo-backflip-shaded.avi

but I cannot put the whole animation online.
It is part of a pilot movie for a television program.
a bunch of talking 3D animals talking about real animals
(like national geographic)

amazing! I really never knew there were 3d companies in the benelux that did this level of composition and cg.

Is it gonna be on dutch or belgium television by the way? :grin:

Oh sorry, hope I wasn't being too curious :/

But that's actually great to hear :) Ik hoop eigenlijk om stage te lopen bij een 3d bedrijf volgend jaar, maar alles dat ik ken is lost boys en davilex. Maar er is dus meer kans voor een plekje ergens... *sorry, didn't know that in english :grin: *

Anyway, I really love this stuff... hope you'll post more ones your permitted and it's released :)

nice style, even thought it seems to be influenced by fantasia 2000.

there seems to be an awkard jolt in his fin in the begining. I can see you used the tail from the footage. good stuff.

very nice job :applause: the only thing I noticed that looks outta place is the way the water rolls on his belly when he dives its off, but that might be the actual real world splash you had to work with... aslo the awkard jolt mentioned by ambassador ;)

excellent job

cheers

tnx..
yes the splash was real footage..
whale was rendered separatly and composited over the real footage.
well about the jolt.. you're right I guess..
small misplacement of the internal skeleton ;)

cheerz
