Rendering: Einstein`s face-screen

This image was rendered with FPrime (rendered image size=2430x1725) in aprox 4 hours
with radiosity enabled (3 bounding boxes) 8 spotlights, Display SubPatch Level = 8, 161,296 polys.
I don`t like the skin yet (bumping problems- not realistic enought).
In the final scene the face from the screen will be a little darken.
When Lightwave`s (v 7.5c) Layout was rendering the image (FPrime render engine) I was modeling in in Modeler,
(P4 2.4 GHz FSB 100 - overclocked tu 2.67 GHz with 758 MB RAM and Hercules Radeon 8500). Once again, huge timesaver sollution.
Maybe I will be able to finish.
For the technical components I will use a lot of procedural textures.

Rendering: Screen face 2

Solved the bumping problems. Same scene without radiosity.

Lighting: A New Beginning - scene

I`ve almost finished to model all the details.
I have to finish the equipment used for generating the body (located in foreground).
If everything is going well, for the final rendering job I will render the entire scene in 4 layers.
The background will include the face from the screen. This one is finished.
The next layer will includ the huge screen and the bookcase behind it.
The third layer will include the brain machine.
The last one will include the new body under construction and the equipment used for this task.
It`s possible to render the head in the foreground in a fifth layer due to lack of PC memory. it depends how I will do the hair, using Saslite or modeling it.
As a matter of fact, the entire multirendering job for this scene is a problem of hardware shortage of resources.
The head in the foreground is not textured yet (and some other objects too).

A, one important detail (for me at least) - the scene will be called " A NEW BEGINNING"

Texturing: Left eye - detail

left eye - detail

Lighting: Computers-detail

Computers - detail
The first computer serves for body generation process, and the second one belonging to huge background screen serves for
comunication. Of course, there are audio comunnications too, but for those who can`t hear he`s using a video interface.

Rendering: Brain machine - detail

Brain-machine - detail from final rendering job.
One last rendering and I`ll finish the scene.

My computer broke down due to some kinf of virus attack.

Arrrgh..... too bad..... As Virtuoso said, you sure came in here with a bang, so, I guess you could just do that again next time... But start earlier then!

Some for your poor computer....
