This is only my opinion, so dont take offence.
Armiller, Very little to critisize except possable slightly over bright lighting around bottom of the board. Photo real.
Krisknak, A strange mixture of objects, some much better textured than others. The wood txture could probably use some scaleing in the texture mapping panel. The upper right game piece appears to floating in mid air. But overall, I think this was a missed opertunity for a some candel lighting effects.
modlar, A good picture, but it is let down by, non square tex map on the floor. Tex mappin not right on the benches. Flat?. No shadows, and no reflections or AO.
Padfoot7726, It looks rigged to me.
Radulan, Good pic, absolute chaos.
RobertT Fantastic pic, and a much more subtle/correct use of focus blur. Not to mention a great interpritation of the brief.
Rodrigo Sidney, I dont get it, but some aliasing around the turned edges.
th555. A fairly simple but pleaseing image, but did you use post pro on the AO. This appears mirrored on X, and I dident think yafaray could do that.
Urth, Much funnier if a little too flat.
wutervd, Again a good pic, but it could have been improved by modeling the creases rather than setting solid. Also the map appears to go through the cup. Sticking pins in the table top makes me cringe.
Helix, S–t hot. The only thing that looks a little off to me is the internal maze walls are round section, while the perimiter wall is square.
renderrednelb, A good start, but maby booliens could help you finnish off the modeling.
rebogey, agh wtf is that again.
I was struggling for an idea when I saw the article on the discovery of deep sea green bomber worms and how they seem to use a similar strategy to aircraft avoiding heatseaking missiles. They apparently shed spheres, evolved from there gills, which glow bright green. It is believed this is a defence stratigy when attaked by a preditor.
Probably only spent about 10 hours on this one, but it varies. Sometimes I will spend all weekend remodeling somthing when I get the methodoligy sorted. Other times I dont have an Idea until teatime on monday, and have to do a lash up. The revamped computer helped tremendously this week with much faster preview renders etc.
Now Im going to spend more quality time with my first love. The game engine, and play catch up again.
ps, off to vote.
