wow that pic rocks! great textures! happy hallows to u too!
Well done Gimble ! looks like you solved the UV problem…
Excellent texture work! I am sure that the UV’s on that shark were a pain in the rear
Only crit I have is that the water around both the shark and the devil is very calm. Should have more turbulence near each character.
Overall excellent work!
Thanks for the replies people. Very much appreciated
Thanks, I’m just starting to figure out texturing.
To tell the truth, I was hoping to corner you in #blenderchat and talk you into texturing the shark for me, but I haven’t seen you there lately.
I guess that’s what they call tuff luv :-?
Thanks. Starting to figure things out. Still a long ways to go to come even close to matching your work though…
Thanks to you too.
Yes, that was on my ToDo list - it does look rather static yet…
Actually the UV work on the shark was very simple. I took a side picture of the shark in Blender using Ctrl_F3. Imported it into a paint program, and then just made a selection, filled with a texture color, and then pasted it from Window in the UV editor back in Blender.
The only problem I had was that I had to ‘drop’ the yellow texture below the Shark’s side fins to avoid getting the tops of the fins yellow. Not sure how to avoid this. I was thinking maybe a bit more work selecting faces, but then how to ensure no ‘breaks’ in the texture where the selected/unselected faces meet up. ( I hope that made sense )
I guess I posted a little early, there was still a few tweaks I wanted to make:
Add a wave in front of the shark,
Add ripples underneath the Halloween pails,
Tweak the Shark’s top fin a bit more,
Add mist (maybe… I can never get good results), and
Fix the small artifacts on the lower left edge of the picture. Not sure what is causing it - must be the envmap for the water. It showed up in an earlier rendering - http://www.telusplanet.net/public/megadv/gallery/pumpkyn_shark_old.jpg (just left of the red devil costume kid’s bucket - there is a single white pixel on the edge) I fixed it by rotating the camera 1 degree to the right.
Oh, and maybe tweak the water a bit more - add foam and such…
A few more images for anyone who read this far
that’s a really cool pic!
don’t have much suggestion to add, but a little refraction would be nice.
PS: are you going to enter On The Haunt?
Thanks theeth. Yes refraction would be nice
Yes, I entered it earlier today and I see it’s posted now. Just waiting to see your entry. Looks like some really nice entries again this year. Guess I’ll have to start earlier and work harder next year
