for the update, scroll down

The third edition of my chessboard set. I will add a DOF version later when I got the DOF to work good in LF.

I love the glass and reflections! Looks Life-like!
The lighting around the board could look a bit softer, (A minor thing.)
and the wood texture could use a bump map. Or a better one.

Maybe it’s just my monitor is too dark, but it seems as if the black pieces “disapear” into the black background behind them. I love the look of the pieces and it would be great if they weren’t lost in the background.

Very nice work, I am just learning Lightflow and hope that I can get results like this!

maybe bring the camera in so we can actually see the objects that would also help with the fading into the background problem… you would be able to see more of the reflections to distinguish the pieces.

first of all, really F’n nice! But yeah, the view should be closer, maybe put some other background besides black, and fix up the lighting a tad. REAL cool though man, just needs a bit of technical polish and you’ve got a real top notch pic on your hands.

Wow… very cool… neato in fact…

I owned a set of the glass chessman… and the “white” pieces looked just like this… you captured that liquid glass (organic smooth curves) look so perfectly.

I can’t wait to see what you do with the DOF… I’m already sensing that if you post an updated pic… I’ll be using it as my desktop wallpaper… and maybe even the wallpaper in my office too… :wink:

Very good job.

Update!
(For another update scroll down some more :))

here is an update of my chessboard. As you can see DOF is added, and I use a different camera view. I also made the pieces red, so you can see them better.

Just sweet ! Much better composition with the different camera angle and the DOF is greatly improved.

Beautiful work!

Now you anly need a nice environment for background…

Looks great, I like the composition much better. Would you consider sharing your shader settings? Being a new Lightflow user, it helps to see the type of shaders that return great results like yours.

No problem, I attached the .py file on the page.

I use a bit of Virtua light. Can any users tell me if it’s possible to do stuff like that???

(hannibar) #18

It sure is possible. I don’t know how to do it in virtualight, but I believe dotblend has a tutorial on how to use virtualight.

Update!

btw here is another render I made of this board.

http://users.pandora.be/willem.packet1/chess5.html

It’s the last one I have rendered now, but when I have made a nice background, you’ll see more of this chessset. When you have a good idea for the background, you can always tell it to me 8)

damn sweet! :o thanks for another look at this beauty!


(stephen2002) #20

ohhh…shiny.

That thing must have taken a LONG time to render. The fact that the chess board is that reflective seems to be a bit strange to me. Glass pices, never seen them but nice touch.
