Greg Jackson is entered in the “Strange Behavior Challenge” update: View Challenge Page
I am new to these competitions and I do not know many people. So all who come to read this, Good Luck!
Just something I had in my mind, and needed to put on paper before I forgot.
A ladybug having a nice time in an onsen with some drinks (miniture sized that is ^ ^)!
I’ll do some more work on the concept of course ^ ^
Just getting a feel for the layout.
Wondering if the camera distance is too great or not.
Anyway, i’m working on it ^ ^
Lovely concept! Lady bug at a spa
The distance seems a bit far I think - but you could always do a zoom in after showing the overview, right?
I noticed that you can’t really see what’s going on. I have got a closer view at the moment, but I am not sure it is the final view. But I will post it later tonight
Changed the camera view to get a close up of the ladybug, so you can actually see what is happening.
And yes, I realise that the shell looks like an orange ^ ^
I’m working on various things, so there is a lot of work to be done.
I was really trying to get the feel of earth soil, but haven’t see gotten far yet
moving along nicely By the look of it
looks like you going down to the micro level? maybe try Depth of field and camera focus setting. Just an idea All up nice work, good luck
Thanks T4D!Thanks for the info. I will definitly add some dof and other cool settings now that you mention it.
As for the micro level, I am trying to do that, although getting that exact feel that I want is proving a little tough.
Anyway, thanks for the input, it is much appreciated!
Hi all. Another update.
I have done more work on the earth detail and the lighting. It is proving difficult because general soil is very dark, and makes the image too dark. So I have been trying to get the feel just right before I move on. It still isn’t 100% to my taste but it’s making progress.
I have been going very slow due to me looking for work at the moment (we all got to pay rent I guess).
Anyway, I’ll soon be moving on to the grass o.0
p.s. oh and yes… I noticed I forgot to texture her head…
I just fixed the water to make the scene feel a little more complete.
I’m still not too sure if a ladybug would make such small ripples in such a small onsen. I think they might be bigger in comparison. Still working on it lol!
I’m just posting to say that in the next week or two I am moving back to Durban, South Africa.
So work will be a little slow coming out, especially as I will not have a computer nor programe to work on it for a while :eek:
So, for now adios amigos. Wish me luck, I’ll need it to get working on this project again soon!
And for the rest of you. Incase, I wish you all the very best of luck. You are all talented people who will one day make it big! And good luck with the competition :applause:
Looking good so far - I really like the soil texture. I’d like to see some more development in thee story.
Hi all. I finally got to Durban!
But… me being the idiot I normally am… left all of my work on my desktop in the UK and forgot to transfer it to my laptop for backup…
Sooo… I am sorry to say. I have to leave this competition. Mods/Admin feel free to remove this topic, as there is nothing I can do to it unfortunatly.
To the rest, i have been following ALL of your progress, and I definitly like with what I can see.
Keep up the work, think straight, have insane amounts of coffee but most of all, have fun
Greg - Over and out.

Quite interesting. Keep on doing! I like the rocks colour.
