Title: Clown, Nicolo59 (3D)

Name: nicolas lesaffre

Country: Hong Kong

Submitted: 22nd May 2003

This image was part of my studies at Supinfocom back in 2003, this was my second 3D rendering project, and was published in Expose, I got a CGtalk gold awards, and finally it was part of the 3DSMAX install of the 2004 version.

Looking good, but the bowtie looks too bright compared with the rest.

Hey, that's pretty awesome! I especially like the dust on the table-top, and the sagging in the bean-bags. I didn't really notice the extra brightness in the tie until I read that, but is that what you wanted? I know my eye was drawn to it. Did you purposely make it brighter to remind us of clowns?

Oh and the drum looks great! To be extremely picky, I would say, the back left edge of the skin looks a little know? Right where the skin tucks away next to the rim. Like there's sort of a line there. Actually, maybe it's just me.

Really nice work! :)

Wow..damn fine image!

The few critiques I do have are minor:

1.) The tuner plate on the radio (the one with all the frequency numbers) looks a little flat. They're usually set back about .25-.5 of an inch from the plastic face. It may actually be that way but in the image it looks a tad flat.

2.) Also The image that appears outside the window looks a bit flat too...there doesn't appear to be much distance b/w the window and whatever that is (the side of a building with a mural on it?). Maybe a bit of blur since your f-stop is gonna be a bit low to get a good focus on the objects that close to the camera.

3.) The scratches on the window. If you look closely there apears to be scratches that go arcoss the window handle and flatten everything out. It looks like they were applied in photoshop to give the wooden part of the window an aged scratched look. But since they go evenly over the flattens everything out.
I then thought that the image was supposed to be an old photograph that was supposed to have scratches on it but they aren't anywhere else in the scene that I could see. I attached an image below to point out what I'm talking about.

I have to say that this piece is simply stunning. Great photorealism!

Wonderfull job!

Nice to see your work again, It is evry nice, :thumbsup:

Beautiful image, very captivating.

05 May 2003, 06:33 AM
Very real looking....

05 May 2003, 07:10 AM
its looking really good :)

only thing that bothers me is the drum stick on the top.
the shadow that its casting should be over laping the the drum stick on the bottom and the pages of the book...

other than that its a really nice piece to look at...awsome job at making it look old :thumbsup:

05 May 2003, 08:23 AM
Wow, looks like a photo! :thumbsup:

05 May 2003, 09:00 AM
First of all, it looks veeeeeeeeeeeery nice! ;)

Second, small critique. IMO the upper drumstick looks like it lies wrong. You must look twice to detect it is lying on the matchbox, and NOT on the other drumstick. :-) Physically it is correct, but just for the eye it is confusing. (Maybe just for my eye)

05 May 2003, 01:49 PM
Very nice, indeed. Your detail and texturing is amazing.

05 May 2003, 02:56 PM
That is a quality render, luve the texture and lighting work, well done

05 May 2003, 02:58 PM
I like it alot!:thumbsup:

I have only one observation/query to make. Are the speakers on the radio suppose to be behind a mesh of some sort? It looks like they are covered but the lower right speaker looks like it's sticking out past the screen mesh somewhat. Hopefully you understand what I mean. Speaker's also need to be toned down a bit. They seem too bright, like other's have said about the bowtie.

Good work, tho'. Couldn't have done any better myself.:hmm:

05 May 2003, 06:45 PM
Great Lighting, I enjoy watching images of such high quality. Good Job.

05 May 2003, 07:43 PM

Excellent render! It amazes me what Brazil can do in talented hands. I love the lighting(of course ;)) and especially the texturing. Even the ball on the rightmost edge feels "real" nicely done.
