Hey, Leotril. Yes, I've always liked the look of the first two Alien movies, so that's high praise . Thanks!

Final Render: OTV Docking



This is my final still rendering for the Eon modelling contest. The image shows an OTV docking to one of the rotating docks in the borehole. I used Wings and Maya for modelling, Darktree Textures and Photoshop for texturing, Maya again for scene setup and lighting, and 3Delight (a Renderman clone) for rendering. Some custom shaders were written using Windows Notepad and previsualized with Aqsis (another Renderman clone).

Note that the original image was rendered at 2657x3636 resolution. This has been scaled down and the compression quality reduced to drop the file size to below 150 kilobytes and the image size below 1280x1024.

Your final render still image is awesome! You've taken a simple scene (modeling-wise) and have made it look so much more detailed with the displacements, lighting, rendering, and post comp work. I also love the compostion of the piece. Very well done.

Good luck with the final judging!

Thanks, Jesus. Yes, you're on to my dirty little secret -- the scene is actually quite simple, and it's the surface and displacement shaders, the lighting, and the postprocessing that I use to sell it. Ah, well. Whatever works, eh?

By the way, I had a look at yours, too. I like it a lot -- particularly the design of the truck, and the weeds by the roadside. Good luck to you too!

Say, does anyone know when the results are to be announced? The competition looks pretty stiff. There are a lot of really good entries, and I'm starting to get nervous .

Hey Vikram,

Well, I don't know when the winners will be announced but in the FAQ thread Mibus who is looking after the challenges said it usually takes 2-4 weeks to announce the winners. It is now just over 4 weeks so I would guess we will be hearing the announcement soon..
Your image looks cool, great job and good luck.
