Christmas Reindeer

Im new to blender artists - this is my first post and completed artworks :D.
I was doing a christmas project so I decided to post it and see what people thought of it. My rigging and shadows weren’t great but I guess it’s ok for my first go :rolleyes:.

This is just a render of the basic model:

And this is the completed image:

Anyway, the reindeer family wish you all a merry christmas!

haha nice stuff i like the reindeer with the red nose :slight_smile:

Looks cool! Some more shape to the face would be nice though.

Very good!:slight_smile:
BTW, the plural of ‘reindeer’ is just ‘reindeer’ :D(sorry, had to correct that…:o)

lol thanks - changed it

aww, cute :slight_smile:

Awww, that’s cute! And a nice concept too :slight_smile:

I think it would be better if the face was more refined, though. And maybe a bit of AO.

Really cool though :slight_smile:

very cute! keep it up

Yeah i can see i needed to refine it more after lookin at it for awihle. :o Just one the what’s AO - lol im still a noob and dont know these things.

Thanks guys for all your comments so far! :slight_smile:

No problem :slight_smile:

When using blender internal, go into the world panel, click onto “amb occ”, click the only button there, and that’s all really. Then if you play with those values, most importantly the “samples” value, it’ll sort out AO for you. AO is basically where renders look more photorealistic by bouncing light back from objects. Here’s some examples:

(First image without AO: 2.5 seconds)
(Second image with AO at 5 samples: 10.5 seconds)
(Third image with AO at 10 samples: 35 seconds)
