This is a homage to one of my favorite surrealist artists H. R. Giger and - to the alien movies.
Finally i did it, i think ;). You can see the development of this picture in the wip-thread. I took account to some suggestions in the final, which i didn’t take in account in former renders, e.g. darker bg, better dof etc.
THX to all who helped me!
It was a hard “Birth”, so you can see the title as a playing with words
Well i learned much about texturing, lighting, moddeling and postproduction during this project, and i am glad how it turned out…
Fog, dof and glow are postwork. Everythink is moddeled and all textures are handmade by my own (exept some procedural textures)
Blender internal, no radiosity (i am a bit impatient ^^)
I think about 2 million, eggs and teh alien need most of them… Background has only 40000 I think…
Long, but not too long i think about 3 hours the foreground 2 the background. But i had more layers. I think perhaps 12 or 15 hours all in one
Tomorrow i will clean up a tiny little mistake, but no one will notice that, so i add this to the finished projects
Since so many people asked me how i made the slime - there is nothing special about this!
Here is the material:
The glow is done in postwork (Gimp) - blur
