The way I'm managing the lights is proving more difficult then its worth in that room. I had a simpler idea that would not only look better but render better too.

Maybe I'll post his pose later, because he is currently pulling the bolt back on his sniper.

I think I'm going to scrap the room int he distance for something easier to manage with final gathering.

There is a large difference when you know someone personally.

There is glass between his eye and the goggle, but there is no lighting to really show it (For those who didn't notice). It is about 5700 faces.

His eye is so wide for the shot I want to throw him in. Most of this is made to be smoothed, but I feel no need to triple the poly count for such a small change.

It must be good because the bottle does say "Nom" on it.

Isn't there an old commercial about AIDS? Except it was a household product of some sort. You should find that :D

AlCool @ More Island Renderings

I have uploaded what an ambient occlusion render looks like for some old models in my profile. It basically controls how much light different parts of the model will take.

I'm not much for the technical jargon of how it works, but you could fake Ambient Occlusion by making dozens and dozens of lights in a sphere around your scene, which is why baking in ambient occlusion maps or doing an ambient occlusion pass that you overlay later can really help bring out the shape in your scene. It gives everything a more realistic look with the lighting.

I would also avoid ever using an ambient light if you happen to be using one in this scene. Flattens everything out something fierce :\

Anyways in short, give it a look and see if you can incorporate that into your 3D work! I don't know how sketchup works or if it has AO at all, but it would only make your models look even better!

Yeah it can really be a pane to do ;D

The presets Maya has can look very nice, but they give you little control. It seems like the presets were mostly made to be windshields though for some reason.

Still trying to mess with the glass shader. Trying to imitate some of the good presets so I can have more control over it. Still working on the distortion of the type of glass I'm going for.

Gonna update the last 3 pics I posted when I get home, with some new shaders on a buncha stuff. I don't think anyone will care about comparisons.

The ones that have been getting people recently either lead to fake steam forums or the fake steam websites, but they give you keyloggers.

It isn't hard to get sucked into them when you get them from someone you trust and it doesn't seem out of the ordinary at the time.

AlCool @ Just plain funny !

screw you all I own more disks and floppys then you own steam games!

There is far more satisfaction is owning physical copies, although I do find myself venturing a few sites other then steam or D2D for digital copies like the great GOG for some oldschool fun!
