hehe! looks like a bodybuilder now. Id say the proportions before seemed to be more adequat. guess that's because his eyes are a little bit to small. Id try to make the eyes somewhat more bigger. but what does the reference foto say?

PS: I have some hi res reference facePics on my disc. if youre interested just pm me your e-mail adress.



excellent work here!

I think its getting closer to realism. I myself allways evaluate the subD version and tweak there as well as the polyside of it. but in the end Id say -> a reference pic is very nececcary since you can ask the foto if it is right or not. I can only give intuitiv answers. I use fotos because realism in my opinion is handcraft/science not art.


PS: I find your devilGirl is a very foxy lady!!

can you give us a wire on your edge loops. something dosnt look quite right. I think the cheek bones are a little too low, and I think that the eye brow's should be looked at a little more.

Good so far mate.



Keep going!

He looks rather sad now lol. His eyebrows slanting upward creates that effect.

very cool job! the time you need for doing him is astonishing. Im still struggling with the eyes on my head. but -> short change of subject if you dont mind.

which lightning setup did you use for this render? 3point? Im asking cause I like this plastic renders but never accomplish to set them up this way myself...

Hi Falott

Thank you for your kind words!

Well heres how the render is done.

The material is just a simple lambert, but I added a little glow

Heres the setup. The plane is to bounce light.


The light is a point light with these settings.



Use ray trace shadows.

In mental ray setup.


Area light setup, which is below the mental ray setup.



Turn on FG > Final Gather rays to 500

Turn on GI > Global Illum Accuracy 271

Well that should do it

Good luck.

Vedic
