Cheers and God bless.

Hey blenderfan,

I don't see an entry from yourself on this challenge... I really liked your scifi entry..very well done... This challenge did take more time than others I've tried for some reason. It is a tough challenge to get the reflections, mirroring, and skin texture to look the way I wanted..
I'm a relative newby to CG so I am not surprised but I learned a ton on this one..

Yeah, I never finished an entry to this one, but that's okay, I will definitely be in on the next challenge. All the entries to this one were so cool.

I'm glad you liked my Sci-Fi entry, I always learn a ton from these challenges.

Cheers and God bless.

Hello again!

I know I've blowed the deadline for this, but nevertheless I'll post my last render of the Cat's eye. Note that this is a raw .jpg direct from Maya, rendered with mental ray. Illuminated with HDRI and a single point light.

My thanks to Jeremy for the tip on how to mapping color to the fur, its now much much better. Thank you!

And cheers for Phil, I liked very much the watery effect of his eye.

Thanks for 3dRender.com for the opportunity and for Serguei Kalentchouk for the model.

See you in the next challenge!

Helton Rosa.

Hi Folks- I missed the deadline for this challenge, but I'm finishing it anyway. I have learned much from these posts and look forward to the next challenge. There is some incredible work here. My personal favorites are Phil_Roberts- the realism is incredible, great job.
HiltonRosa- The cat eye is a great idea/ keep combing that fur. The fur on the face isn't as random as your hair simulator makes it. It looks too 'wooly'. I think the Iris wouldn't be so contracted in that light intensity. Just a few more tweeks and you're there!
great job everyone.

Updated with some makeup as long as were sort of waiting.

@n3m72: That's amazing, what you've done there. The top of the eye is a little plastic-looking, but it's barely perceptible. Would that have something to do with the makeup?

Happy Easter!

Thumbs up Totally Awesome Flashback !

Hey Everybody -

Great job!

I'm sorry that things get put on pause for 3 weeks, but that's necessary now.

When will the new gallery appear? The first week of May. I can't wait to post these terrific images!

When will the next challenge start? The first week of May. We have a terrific new scene being modeled.

See you all soon!

-jeremy
