Very nice render. I like the colors a lot.

That is soooo cute!! I usually don't do these fanboy comments, cause - well, lotsa folks will do that anyway - but this just hits my heart. :love:

No critique, I love it as it is. But then again, I always had a thing for pandas.

Looks awesome, but theres one thing that was bothering me..

The DOV(Debth of View).. near the tall building, it gets sharper.. I don't know if you ment it like that or wat?

08 August 2004, 12:11 AM
Love the concept of this artwork. The rendering/modeling is great as well. Awesome piece here ^^

08 August 2004, 12:13 AM
lol , funny idea and great work :thumbsup:

Another nice render , another cute charachter !
I love the facial expression here too

Man..."you had a new fan" :D

08 August 2004, 12:21 AM
the renderind has something really special. I really like it! Perhaps a linear cartoon clouds could complete it. It would reduce the sharp effect of the montain/hill i think

08 August 2004, 12:21 AM
That looks gorgeous, love the image.
But I dont like the water. Remember water is transparent and has substance. The water looks shallow in the image cos the character is standing in it. You should atleast be able to see the bottom, and anything below the surface, unless of course the water is very murky. But then you still should be able to see something just below the surface anyway.

08 August 2004, 12:27 AM
@monstre: Yes. It was ment to be that way. I tried to simulate (photoshop) an overbrightning background. But i must admit :hmm: that didnt work that well.
The whole DOV is just photoshoped (I know that could have done better)

Right now I really have a hard time leaving my PC and go to bed. :wise:
There are so many nice comments, questions and private messages to my first and last 3Renderings on this forum.
Thanks a lot.

...and a big thanks to the admins putting me to the frontpage.
I took a screenshot :thumbsup:

you never seize to amaze me florian :bowdown: (becomming a fan) texture & lighting is great, the colors look like water colors...did you by chance use Ink & Paint ?

08 August 2004, 01:16 AM
the picture is great.. surrealistic.
some minor techy problems.. but who cares ?


08 August 2004, 01:43 AM
I like it, you got skill. Your other Images are great too. :applause:
So your working for Phenomedia? Where is Gothic 3? :) Part 1&2 were really good RPGīs.

08 August 2004, 02:09 AM
Great image! Immediately I want to know what happened to get the panda in this situation, and what's on his mind.

08 August 2004, 02:09 AM
florian, you produce some amazing work.

08 August 2004, 02:12 AM
Very good job man:thumbsup:
yes nice colour:bounce:

08 August 2004, 02:46 AM
I love it! , the panda has a great expression on his face, a real "fed up" look , Good Work!:arteest:

08 August 2004, 04:21 AM
You do great work!

08 August 2004, 05:11 AM
very cute ......

08 August 2004, 05:36 AM
2 front pages in a week?? Youre on a roll here son!
Great work! Love the colour - it creates a nice atmosphere. Good water too.

08 August 2004, 08:03 AM
Its a good picture
heres my Crit
The water is to realistic for the scene ,
But if you think he should be able to see the bottom i dunno were your living but were i live in Tasmania bottom of Australia the water can actully be blacky green enough and possible be like this.

Nice going , cya

08 August 2004, 08:05 AM
Although as i recall Water has allways been a set better than normal cg,
i remember watching Ice Age the water in that didnt really fit either into the movie concept feel.

08 August 2004, 09:03 AM
this looks great! i love the rendering style too :bounce:

one thing is don't feel there is enough variation in the rotation of the soccer balls, especially the ones closer to the camera...


08 August 2004, 09:06 AM
amazed by your skills and output
I just hope this is teamwork and you didnt do it since you posted the cute girl some days ago

you mental ray handling is great - I love the soft look and feeling the image has

can you tell a bit how you created the fur - is it fur or what else?


08 August 2004, 10:00 AM
I like the overal image coloring, but maybe the back is too blurry

08 August 2004, 10:12 AM
Why the hell has this post only got 2 stars?
Everyone who posted loves it, so why the negativity? If anyone has any comments you should let them be known, rather than stating it and remaining silent!

08 August 2004, 10:35 AM
Great cartoony style. Very well deserved FrontPage!

i really like the textures, especially on the bear and the balls. the water's really nice as well. awesome!

08 August 2004, 12:15 AM
great atmosphere in this scene...

I think the balls and even the bear could be a little wet..., maybe the specular levels a little high...

Great work!

08 August 2004, 05:39 AM
great job! but,the panda's hands looks problems!

08 August 2004, 06:56 AM

08 August 2004, 02:40 PM
awesome work!! the only thing bothering me is that the sand and rock area doesnt seem as detailed as everything else!!! but well they are far away so no big deal!!
Good Job!!

08 August 2004, 03:48 PM
First of all thanks for all the nice feedback. :)

Some of the "questions" (hi Lotus) can be anwered by this thread.

Everything (except the MentalRay Ocean shader) is realtime geometrie.
Lot's of Photoshop of course. :D ( (

hope that answers your question...
