Hey everyone, just thought I would post my favorite piece of artwork.

This is part of my Demo Reel. Which is relatively recent work.

I have a few other pieces in my portfolio I love as well, but this is my fav. I will try and make my presence here much more prevalent but I usually lurk and read more than post

If you are curious, I Lit and textured this scene. The models were provided by Joel Durham.

Gawlee... these last few are amazing. Shave and haircut is really solid. Fantastic textures. The studio setup on the last page is just crazy! Very photorealistic...

I'm so happy this thread is still going, despite now being a little embarrassed by the ancient pieces I posted to kick it off.

dboydesign: Yeah i have done that, actually my whole setup is based around emitting light through thin cloth, just the way the real props work in a photostudio. I'm not cutting any corners. it works very well, ofcourse it depends on which renderengine you use. In some it works better and in others it works poorly.

phix314: Thank you very much! i'm glad you like it.

Here are some new images i rendered using a updated photostudio setup. These scenes are prepared and rendered with Modo 401, enjoy!
Btw, no postwork has been done on any of these renderings. They are all straight out of Modo.

Nice piece Troy.

Other than the mug, everything looks very "used" and re-cleaned. I like that

I've been modeling for about a year and have only recently (like weeks) started experimenting with lighting and rendering. So far this is the one that I'm most please with....any critique is highly welcome.

Made in Maya 2009, rendered with mental ray.

Hey thanks for the comments Yeminius, Jeb. Sorry I haven't been here in a bit, just have been busy with life. Working on new projects all the time.

WOW. Some inspiring work here.
Perhaps one day i will get there. Currently have been working on my 2nd CG project.

Kind of embarrassed showing this.

That's a great start man

at first you will love it (and is not a bad thing)... but don't depend on the sun and sky to make light setups all the time because if you don't try other light challenges you won't go too far. (supposing that's what you want to do later)

best of luck!
