Cycles Rendering (Blender 3d)

I’m back from vacation and have some stuff to show for the hours that I had nothing to do. Here’s one of them.

Cycles Render 2Cycles test

For as long as Iv’e been using Blender 3d, I have rendered everything with the internal engine, which is one of the two options. The other option being: Cycles

There is a big list of advantages to rendering with Cycles, but in short, it’s more accurate and realistic. Anyway, during my time with no internet, I decided to mess around with Cycles, and see what I could do. Here are a couple of results I got from rendering a past sculpt in Cycles.

I had to play around with the glass one a bit to get an interesting image. What I ended up doing was having a plane behind the turtle with an emission material, which basically makes it a light source.

I have some photos and possibly some pen drawings coming up, so follow this site either by email or WordPress if you want to see more.

Without adjustments. Fresh out of painting.

This was an ongoing personal project inspired by a story that I am writing in my free time (17,317 words so far), which I may or may not release after I finish.

These images are going to be useful for stuff like social media and my website, not to mention my portfolio (Which you can see my new one here: http://jumpingmonkeyart.wix.com/jumpingmonkey#!portfolio/q80gv).

I learned a lot about materials, mainly, throughout the process of the painting. And also how much I stink at backgrounds 😛

And if your wondering why the neck is so long; I can assure you, I didn’t really exaggerate that much from my reference…

I don’t like these pictures as much as the real thing, but whatever. There’s probably something wrong with the way I lit it.
