from the ‘Blue Project’ to ‘Happy Birthday Nana’…I’m anticipating what will come next. :slight_smile:


#22

Truly awesome, as usual Dan.
I can’t believe it hasn’t been promoted to the main gallery though…


#23

This is awesome! I am sure you had some fun with the wrinkles! :buttrock:

you rock!


#24

amazing job, loved the progress of this model and the evolution of your workflow, you are really banging out some amazing art.

          cant wait the next show!

#25

Another masterpiece Dan! Bravo.

I hope you’ll give us a big tutorial one of these days so I can copy everything exactly :slight_smile:


#26

You captured an amazing story here… Very impressive work!


#27

I tried to post on this before but it did not go through. Truly amazing work Dan. You captured an amazing moment with this image. Outstanding work.


#28

Wow! This is some amazing work!

I love the expression on her face. It’s strong, yet subtle enough to emphasize all the wrinkle details. This is a very convincing piece, and I can’t wait to see more of your stuff!


#29

impressive as always Dan! So you did end up using Vray for the hair? Didn’t I read on a previous project you ended up using Vray for the skin and MR for the hair due to some issues? I have been looking into Vray hair for a project recently and came across your previous tutorial. Any tips on how you solved your issues and what shader you used would be amazing! ??


#32

Thanks Raffaele for the Plug! and to CGSociety as well!!
Thanks Nic for the comment! In regards to the hair, I went with a Vray Hair shader and actually did it all on the same pass. I used GI though and that really becomes quite slow, so I had a separate scene previously where I would get an idea of how the hair would react to light.
I ended up doing 3 seperate hair systems with slightly different settings. I used shave for creating the splines and then eventually converted to Maya hair… does this help?

thanks again!!!

gratulations, well deserved :slight_smile:

This is certainly exceptional–the expressive quality makes one want more; a voice perhaps, a garden and her gentle logic interspersed between plantings.
