that’s the only thing that keeps bugging me somehow…

lol… does that mean i’m in the next CJ? :stuck_out_tongue:

basse: yup… it’s some kind of fountain… and yes, it’s a head.

well… actually i wasn’t blending all the time:
10pm - midnight <= blending
midnight - 1am <= gaming
1am - 3am <= blending
3am - 5am <= fixing the coffee machine, sleeping

May I worship your skills of blending? :o Only thing that seems strange is that the leavs look like they´re floating.


(Andy Goralczyk) #8

yeah, the leaves are just planes with an alpha map and blender doesnt support alpha mapped shadows… that’s why they seem to float a bit…

Wow. That’s just beautiful. Love the lighting - very expressive!


(malefico) #12

Excellent job ! I specially like the lighting and atmosphere. Maybe some more bumpmap in the roots or something to make them less plastic. But they’re great the way they are !

Cheers.

(Riskbreaker) #13

Well, i give up…cant compete with that. :x
Im goin back to bed…


(shawnsonium) #14

I can’t believe it. That looks so real…

Did you make the roots from scratch? If you did, how?

Geez, man! I sometimes search through the Finished Projects forum looking only for posts labeled “@ndy”! I’m astonished by your talent with Blender!


(Andy Goralczyk) #15

hey, thanks for the comments :smiley:

malefico: yep, i thought of adding a stronger bumpmap but most roots aren’t really that bumpy…

HyTeMaLa: i modeled the roots with SubSurf, starting with a cube…

here’s a senseless and completely confusing wireframe render :wink:
