Very good idea involving Moses into the scene... I suppose he'll be viewed from behind? Otherwise the face seems a bit too young for a man over 70 ;D


True, that was the idea, though some bumpmaps and textures could fix that easily if necessary.
Howgh!

First test render in scene...

I still need to fix some overlapping issues, but I have faith  :P
Howgh!

And the final moses:

I had to open the previous model in 3DsMax, delete everything that was not connected to the beard object, and I found that the beard was merged with the eyes and the chest part of the robe. So I deleted the vertexes that were attached to the beard, as far as I could select them without selecting pieces of beard with it.
Then exported the beard itself to obj, and merged it in PoseRay with the original Poser exported obj (which didn't have the beard). It fit perfectly, and below is the result.

Now for a nice spot to place him, overlooking the parted sea, and I think the project will be finished...
Howgh!

If you are wondering what happened to this project, I'm still working on it...

Actually I'm rendering the final image now, and it's just over halfway done (after 200 hours non-stop rendering).
Maybe high atmo quality and lots and lots of transparent water and reflective surfaces have something to do with that...  ;)

I'll post the result as soon as possible...
Howgh!

I'm curious! At least you had biblical render times ;D

Hahahahaha  :D
Good one... :P
Howgh!

I guess a preview is in order, as the rendertimes really are biblical by now...

You can also see how the surface is build up. And that I forgot to fix the altitude restraint of the algae layer  :-[


What do you think, is this Image of the Week worthy when it's finished?
Howgh!

Looking good, but I thought you were going to put a wreck in there and a stack of detritus on the ground?

Long render, I imagine if this goes any longer you may just have to replace Moses with a water parting dinosaur
WoooOOooo I am WinDeXTor! I will clean your Soul! HA Ha ha (Echoing Laugh here)

That looks really cool! Nice work.

Cool, Mohawk.  You know you can always render in objects later in crops and then bring them in later by adjusting light values through Paint.Net or Photoshop, etc.  Right?
