the DOF comes from cinema or you post produced something in photoshop?

The near DOF looks cinema 4d 7 not 8

Wonderful. Breathtaking. Worthy of a place in a big national museum or something.
(Mabye just a tad more translucency on the fingers though? And the 3 visible fingers are a bit too much alike and regular, especially the pinky should be different I think)

I think this is awesome, my only crit would be the texture on the hand is a bit grainy, is there any way you cound reduce the bump arifacts but still leave the wrinkles.

Dave:buttrock:

pupii
05 May 2003, 01:14 PM
Thx all comments. Some answer:
The bump of the finger is so sharp, because when I finished the picture I sharpened that, because it made the coach nicer and the fingerbumps get more sharp too.

the flea is so big because it is not an animal flea, but one that lives with the human body. I read that this kind of flea is 1-4 mm. He is a fat flea!

DOF rendered, not a postwork

SSS fake sss, I used "chanlum" channe shader

There's something wrong with fingers for sure, but that's not the bump imo, it's the lack of translucency. Pupii: try using the Translucency shader or chanlum, they work perfectly with skin. :wavey:

that´s how I like
great everything

especially rhe texturing of the wagon
how you did the scratchy paint is great

wonder how you did the shader of the cotton swab


the only crit for me is that the face in behind could look a little bit friendlier.
I know that it should look concentrated, but for his expression is too angry...

05 May 2003, 04:21 PM

This might ave been mentioned but the bump map on the skin looks a little too deep, the shadows are too pronounced. Also where are the cuticles on the nails?

Excellent job!

05 May 2003, 04:47 PM
Damn that's cool.

IMHO, maybe add a bit more rounding on the fingernails (front to back), they appear a little flat topped..., and then the buldge over onto the finger around the cutical, that part seems a bit flat too...

Other than that, seriously sweet work, modeling / textures / concept kicks arse!

The concept that you did is amazing. I think what you have there so far is great. But I feel that you still need to adjust and add more to the head and hand of the person. I like the eye of the person but the expression is not all there. The hand is perfect. Make it look like a real persons hand and you will have it. Show the fingernails bitten down or ripped from being bitten. Show the fingernail with more color and parts where the skin is dry and cracking or just pealing. Maybe some hair on the knuckles. pieces of dry skin coming up from the back of the nail. Also the blur on the front tips of the fingers looks akward, you might want to keep the tips in focus as not to distract.
Have you tried to take a picture of your face and put it in the background? or your hand and comp the flea and buggy to your hand?

well this is a great piece of work.

Fingolfin
05 May 2003, 10:40 PM
Awesome!
Great concept.
Truly creative.

Is it just me or does the cotton swab(Q-tip) on the wagon look too blurry?
Compare the distance with the sign on the wagon. It's not too much further.
Also compare it to the distance of the middle finger (The one behind the flea).
Anyone else?

That's my only critique.

Great work!

Brilliant. I love the composition. Very well done. My only suggestion is that since it's so tiny... you may want to give it a sort of macro lens effect. Maybe a little dof. That can be done in post though, i'm sure. Awesome. =) :beer:

WOW, great concept, great skills!!! Cinema 4D is a very underated package. I'm a MAX user but only because I could get a student version of MAX (+many in industry use it) and Cinema 4D wasn't quite the force then as it is now. All the reviews I've seen of version 8 give it a big thumbs up.

And images like this give me more motivation to go with Cinema 4D if I were to freelance.... Excellent stuff!!!

The texturing is beautiful. I really like the fingers.
The middle finger tip looks a bit dry. I've seen some really only fingers in my day, you know, you know the type of hands that have been working on automobiles their entire life and have seen lots of car oil, and workshop conditions. I don't think they were quiet as dry looking as that middle finger tip. I could be wrong, it might also be the renderer and it could be the way that you wanted the image to look.
The curviture in the finger-nails seem really flat. But, all the segments in the skin that you have are great, all the little indentations from connected pures and the elevated skin between the creases are fantastic.

Don't forget about that small thin layer of skin covers the very first area of your nail as the comes out from under the skin, on the part of the nail closer to the nuckle.
I love the work.

The textures on the wagon are great. The red and yellow parts of the main wagon are really good. It looks like it has been painted multiple times and they once the paint starts to fall off, more was painted on, you know just a real quick paint job to keep the colors nice and bright, but without scraping off the original layer of paint. The wood that has the paint applied to it looks imperfect, rotting areas, hollowed knots, holes and cracks. It looks like it has age because of this. Really nice.

The human eyes in the back makes the view really focus on the wagon immediatly. The asymetrical placement of the eyes is really good, it helps to create movement in the charactor, like he is alive, as though he can move. The contrast from the white que-tips extreme white and shadow of the eyebrow and the purple hollow tube on the other side of the center of the image infront of the tan and dark eyebrow hair create greate balance.

I'll love to see more work from you.

The last piece of CGI art that made me drop my jaw was "Lady Bird". Now it dropped even further. You did it again! If I were Maxon, I'd immediately hire you for lead artist.

To me, this is some seriously good CGI shit. It's not only brilliantly done, but the images also have rich story that makes you want to see them again.

I'm sure a lot of us (especially C4D people) would like to know more, technique stuff and so on.

Keep it up! :thumbsup:

Where did you learn how to texture your models? That alone inspires me. I would love to be as good as you. Can you explain on how you do it?

This looks really interesting, such a cool idea!

I don't know what your fingers look like, but my nails are a lot more round than that. The ones in the picture are almost flat, which, to me, looks unnatural.

One more thing, the louse doesn't seem to be planted on the nail. Get that fixed and you've got a really good scene. The textures are very good by the way!

Great work!

Wonderfully done! I love the glaring eyes behind, a bit more play in post, perhaps some colder colors to spearate the guys face from the backround. The central lighting there is just a little confusing.

God I love C4d getting it's due :)


see you,

Refreshing!

Critic-wise I will side with Robertp and Fingolfin regarding the Background and cotton swab... It seems the background texture could improve a tad (no question you have the skills). It feels a little "cardboardy" as is.

I had a thought about the subject matter. If the suffering of the artist (the fea in that case) is the idea then the picture might gain in power if you slant the hand upward a notch... You know..to make it harder for the flea to pull it all....well just a thought.

Once again, really sweet job Uram!

Excellent work!

One thing that bugs me is that the Near DOF blur ends too abrubtly. The two fingers' tips closer camera is blurred, fine, but the blur ends so rapidly that it seems not like DOF but like a problem with texturing. This is just a little technical problem maybe due to cinema4d but I dunno!

Superb lighting, modeling, texturing.

Oh my.

Only one coment, the bump map in the fingers on the second plane seem to be inverted, so the wrinkles appears to be upwards.

But, aside that, marvellous work!

Really inspiring, congrats!

The skin shader of the fingers it's not perfect but,even if important for the overall look,you were able to mantain the global atmosphere. And that it's what counts most of all at least imho.

A really beautiful job :applause: !

the whole scale of this piece is what does it for me. And the texture work. It's fantastic.

However, I wonder why the guy looks mad? ... that seems a little off ... also in your wire frame ... the little gear wheel for the cannon looks a little messy.

Other than that primo!

Absolutely amazing work. I really like the hand crafted feel of this piece.

My only crit: The hand textures, particularly the fingerprints look wrong and maybe due to an inverted bump map.



Cheers,
