Hi

Unfortunaly, I only got my computer back this week, so I'll only start this month, and I hope do it in time

Well I pick the Nights, because I love it when I played in my Sega Saturn, and I hope you enjoy it..

Hi everyone.

I have one question to ask.

I was seing the other works for this challenge, and they are all amazing, I have to work very hard to make something lake that

Well in the other works I find this one, the rider bird from swankymonkey.

http://tenthchoir.com/Sept_Oct_Challenge004.jpg

I would like to know, how can you render your model like this??


I search in google for some render tutorials, but I can't find anyone that could teach me to render like your picture.

If some one could teach me I will be very apprecieited.

Best Regards

Gamester

Heya Gamester

Read through the posts on my entry thread. I talk a bit about how to get that render style. The lighting (if you can call it that) is achieved through the use of a mental ray dirtmap node that is attached to the ambient color channel of a lambert shader. The wireframe is done through Maya's vector renderer and then composited in photoshop. Thats the short version anyhow. Good luck with your effort!

go to the hardware render buffer, and change it to wireframe

That wont give you a wireframe on shaded render. All that does is give you a empty ( none shaded )wireframe render.

Hi

Thanks every one for the all backup

Thanks swankymonkey for teach me how to render like your images, and I'm sorry for asking you how to do that in my threat, I didn't see your explanetion you your threat, I'm sorry.

Well I've taked a bit of time to start modeling, beacause I had some school projects to make and I will start some tests soon, so I had to study.

This is the Nights head, yes it' looks like the sonic head, I will try to make it better next time

I did'nt have time to try the render that swankymonkey made, but I will try to make it next time

I hope you like it

Best Regards
