Depth of Field

Got a better render when I let cinema 4d do the depth of field pass but it took 6 hours and still did not give me the depth of field effect I wanted but it looked crisper so I took that image into Photoshop to get the focus affect I wanted. I will have to learn more about the depth of field  settings in 4d to get a quicker render.

Today I played around with Depth of Field in Cinema 4D my computer was struggling with it so for now I pulled my image in to Photoshop and came up with this.

Playing around with making fake HDRI lighting

 This first image I just applied an illuminant material to different objects and then baked the image.
The last two images I used Photoshop to to to fake a HDRI image

Tron Cinema 4D

 I watched Tron the other day and it made me think of this project with the sound effector and dynamics in Cinema 4d. The image is so you can see the small dynamic system is smaller blue tron spheres. Long live the users!

T Project

I have been playing with Maya Fur, Nhair, Paint Affects trying to figure out what I liked best I ended up using Nhair and using wind to get the hairs on the rump to go in the right direction and set it as my rest position. Next I need to work on lighting and rendering in mental ray.

T in Mudbox

So I spent most of today in Mudbox learning some cool tricks on how to transfer all my detail without the geometry as well as had some fun with the pose tool and this is what I ended up with when I brought it back into Maya to get Hair.
