It has been over a year since I last posted here so I thought I might add something today. Here is an image I did in a couple of days. It is a real change for me considering most of the images I do takes months. In any event I hope you all like it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
I think it would really suck if they will leave negative feedbacks:D Like the way you made Pi. Did you use curves or have modeled it from the mesh? You could use normal mapping on bricks material and use/increase IOR on glass. It looks like simple ZTransparency. Tray with Ray Transparency.
Hi Javier, Even Negative Feedback is Greatly appreciated. Because it tells me what I need to improve on.
I did create the Pi from a mesh and did use normals on the bricks. I think it might have mashed it flat when I blurred the pic. I did use Ztrans on the glass to save on rendering time. So, I guess the lesson to me is that I should NOT be in a hurry. Thanks for your input
For normals to be in a good visibility you need some extra lights. Something weak around 0.2 to light up the mesh. This will make them more exposed. I’m looking at the material on the gates and normal mapping is visible. You might either tweak it and/or add some lamps. But again camera is quite far away and blur effect. Those factors are affect normal mapping. What was the poly count on this Pi mesh?
