Mean Streets
A short break between movie work led me to purchase some great models from the Daz 3D site (home of Poser and Bryce stuff), so here are some renders in Vue 6.


The models are from a vendor called Stonemason and they are very well done, I just stuck a few billboards for the film up, the rest comes with the model. As this is a poser model, the lights can be switched on and off and you can even have those funny looking poser folk, with their twitchy little legs, wandering about on it.

Once the model had been setup and saved in poser it was imported straight into Vue, with textures intact. The photo textures are very detailed and it's fun to have a wander about the back alleys looking for discarded porn (or is that just me?).

So here you go, a few semi-promotional images before I get back onto the film graphics and new website (opening very soon - finally).

Nice. Those would make great promos for print adds.

As ever, cracking work. Vent shadows on the poster, blends in well. Good to finally see the city block that you've been talking about for a couple of weeks. Amazing what you can buy from the Net these days.

How long to render a 10 second camera move?

Aww. Peter Haining is dead. Your art was in one of his books, and now he's dead! Coincidence? Maybe.

Poor old Peter Haining. I loved The Celebration book. It was the first semi-serious Dr Who book published. OK, so most of the actual 'facts' were wrong and he though Jon Pertwee was in Tomb of The Cybermen. But, massive journalistic mistakes aside I still enjoyed his books.

You should post some of your 'Haining' art here as a tribute?

Oh, poor Pete. That's a shame, he did a huge amount for the who big book market. Not sure if I know where me drawings are, or if they are too scratchy to post. I'll have a look.

A 10 second ani at PAL would take about 8 hours. At 1080 about 4 days, at highest render option. Great models though. I'll have a go next week.

Broadcast setting tends to be fine for anims, any higher than that normally makes for a very slow rendering anim.

Nice work,You've done a cool job of the lighting on the pictures.

Cheers Andrew, I'm probably using setting way to high for animations they take ages.

Heya! Yeah, the camera obscura did a number on people's proportions, which are interesting looks to try to recreate today! There are some pretty weird portraits out there, if not for distortion, for beauty...that is, what we think of as beautiful is far different than the 16th c. German view.

As for the photos of my dresses, I have a friend who's hobby it is to buy expensive camera equipment and take pictures of his friends in his home studio. My pictures NEVER come out looking so good, lol :-).
