Hi All!

Thanks again for all the praise
Sorry for the delay in response, but I just got back from celebrating my 1-year anniversary. that and work has finally started picking up more (our project might actually be *moving forward*. what a concept, but it beats looking for work elsewhere...)

lildragon- i know there was a link on to here, so that's probably generating a good number of hits. I'm not in as far as i know, but that would generate a zillion hits as well... this also got linked to in some monthly tech-email subscriptions too... oh, and there's a link to here on my web site's main page, so what it's up, it probably generates a few hits too.

FthrJACK- i used lightwave for modeling and rendering (photoshop for textures, of course), and defocus dei dor the depth of field. i also used photoshop to composite the hairs (LW saslight plugin) onto the final image (as saslight and GI don't mix very well:()

sampi- i've always had this strange fascination w. mice... not too long ago, i finished a pc logitech mouse ( and it was so realistic that many people thought i just liked logitech so much that i went and found some cool pics of their mice and used them for wallpaper... not quite what i was looking for, but a problem inherant in photo-realism... so i needed to push it further than simply coming up w. my own design (blah, blah, blah... stuff about using the computer for more than making photorealism (buy a camera if you want that)... blah, blah, blah). So i turned to organic materials, came up w. the idea of having the logo tattooed on (ala the MAYA logo, i suppose), and the rest kinda developed from there and what messages and purpose i wanted to put into it...

The concept is very provative and evocative. This gets an A for originality.

i *thought* i posted a reply a few days ago, but i don't see it here... another glitch, eh sherban?

I'm not too sure I'd use my mouse, but I'd definitely keep a few around for show. now if only i can get them manufactured...

yon dabuda- here's a bit longer of an explaination as to how I made the hairs:
1- rendered out my image w.OUT any hairs (GI really hates the LW Sasquatch plugin:( )
2- next, turn off GI, make all textures 100% luminescent white, and turn on Sasquatch hairs, and make them black. your render will be all white with black hairs.
3- head into Photoshop, and load up your first image.
4- make a new layer, and fill it with the color you want your hairs to be.
5- open your b&w hair image, select all, and copy.
6-go back to the file we're working on, select the layer we filled w. color, and hit the 'quick-mask' button
7-paste. (this will paste the b&w hair image into our quick-mask. you might need to hit 'invert'... i don't remember...)
8-press the quick-mask button again to go back to normal mode. we now have everything but the hairs selected. cool, huh?
9-press delete to clear away the fill, leaving only our hairs.
10- now you can go in and adjust the color of the hairs to suit

if i were needing to do an animation of this, i'd probably use LW's compositing; using the b&w hair image as a mask for a brown foreground image...

thanks again for all the praise and comments, all
