Howling, Massimo Righi (3D)

Title: Howling
Name: Massimo Righi
Country: Italy
Software: Maya, mental ray

Just another illustration with my wolf model. I' ve tried to achieve my childhood vision of it.
Maya for modelling, rendered with MentalRay, Shave and A Haicut for fur.
The background is 3D, I' ve used a textured sphere with self illumination for the moon. The trees are polygonal.
Rendered in two passes and composited in photoshop, where I' ve played with contracts and color gamma.
The highres rendering is 2544x3588 pixels.

Here is a crop of the actual size:

I hope you like it:)

Wow, the wolf looks almost real! And the fur is amazing, this is one of the best fur model I've seen on CGS. I think it could go in the 3d choice awards (I vote for you)

Good job!!

Stunning work, best 3D far! I agree a little with PKD - it's a bold composition, using some artistic freedom with that large sized moon. However, a 3D master piece.

CG hair is a hard thing to master but you have done it with perfection. The degree of detail and balance with the hair is flawless. Very well done.
