Thanks for all your kind comments!
@B-Max: Your comment made me really happy :love: Indeed, I wanted to show a person who lived already
@Molte: A friend of mine showed a me a “photoshopped” version of my Image, he made a strong contrast, but I didn’t liked it … I know, it’s liked by most people, but simply not my taste … blush
fryrender is an unbiased engine, and those engines render always fully featured (for example, always with GI, Caustics, etc.). So it just take its time for the Quality And besides that, the last version step of fryrender gave a great speed improvement and special acceleration for IBL.
If you take a look at my Gallery, all my Images are rendered with fryrender. I must admit, personally I can’t Imagine something better shrug. What I love most is the super simple material system with only a few parameters.
@Matasorapit: For the Hair i turned “Generate” on and set the profile to “Flat”. So I had polygon strands. I gave it a nice fryrender-material with Single-Sheet SSS. On my website in the “Goodies”-Section is a Tutorial about my Image “The Package They Carry”, where I explained this technique.
@sundoorink: Hm … photorealism is always a goal of me, but I’m also attracted by exaggeration or by showing things that cannot exist in reality … but this is just a (artistically) portrait of a character this time
… Thanks again!
