Title: Jo Kariboo (wip's)
Post by: Jo Kariboo on February 05, 2018, 10:28:46 am
"Mountain cows"
Hello, for this first series of wip I opted for a style "cartoon" in a semi reality environment. For this reason I have used a single grass population in the same size, as for cows they all have the same size and are identical. The cliff is a file mix of Mhaze, Dune Efflux and me. The vegetations is of Silva 3D and the cows of The model resource.

The terrain already looks great! But I'm not sure about the cows. I know you aimed for a semi realistic style, but to me the difference in realism between the terrain and the cows is too much. Maybe some more realistic ones in the style of Ice Age for example?

I love it, the contrast between the two elements works really great ... but please add a parachute to this poor cow on the picture 4  8)
And bravo for breaking the rules, my useless vote is for you  ;)

I have a thought about how this mix of cartoony and realistic could work better, at least for those of us who are skeptics (myself included)...

What if you actually tried to make it look like realistic *cardboard cutout cows*? I think if you look closely at the current textures they imply that this is just a cardboard creation (you see a cardboard edge I believe). But it's just a texture, and the smooth surface and other details make it look truly cartoony. But if you worked on a semi-rough "paper" texture/bump, with the same color texture, and made the model more detailed depicting individual sheets of cardboard, and the modeled the way such a cow "cardboard sculpture" might appear in reality...

Then you have your amusing, surreal element, but it also fits with the realistic background. Just a thought. :D

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I know I am a little out with this type of pictures compared to what is presented to the usual in this type of contest with the Terragen software which is excellent for making photographic and realistic images.
In my case, the interest of continuing to make photographic pictures with 3D had completely disappeared in the summer of 2007, being realistic was no longer a motivation.
I know that maybe I will not win anything but the motivation and the pleasure is back and it's very pleasant.  :D

Exactly!
I like the render and the cows. Looks funny and cool.
Photo quality renders will "talk" mostly to geeks. Average Joe will see a photo quality render and see it as a photo. He will never understand how hard to make one so he will just walk away from it. Your idea will be liked by more people because it is funny, cool and it is a new idea well executed or on the way...

Thank you Hetzen and everyone else for your comments and suggestions. Indeed I could buy a cow's object of better quality or more realistic, this one is free and it is far from being in high definition... but here I really like this contrast with the rest of the images. I can't improve what it is but I'll try in the following days to add some texture from TG, anyway I don't have anything like 3d software.

The cows are certainly telling a funny story.  Sometimes this is exactly what we need. You could start your own children's book series with these cow renders, if you just find a writer (maybe yourself).  Penguins are always a good choice too.  :)

I'd figured out what animals got up to at a very young age. We'd always watch nature shows on a Sunday night and that inevitably involved mating being shown, and animals eating other animals.
Title: Re: Jo Kariboo (wip's)
Post by: luvsmuzik on February 07, 2018, 10:01:13 am
 Yes, inevitably children's books of today will portray ..."this is where your beef steak comes from" Images of artificial insemination, feeding troughs, perhaps a slaughterhouse.

Recently read about a poor cow who escaped her pasture and is running free with a bison herd. The concern is now is that she will mate and contaminate the gene pool of the bison...so I suppose they will capture her or worse.

Not starting an argument, my grandpa was a butcher. Long before biology class I learned bones and joints...ha :)

Third is definitely my favorite and GREAT STUFF! I really like what you've done here. I would dump the guy and rabbit though and add a more serious greenery cover. Not too much, few trees, shrub, grasses... in designated areas, not to compromise the design and focus.

The number 1, why not. :P

Thanks Dune. I will try to improve the effect of water. Currently everything is under water, it is perhaps due to transparency that gives us the impression of floating above the water. By eliminating perhaps the brightest it would be less apparent.

According to real photographs of this phenomenon one has the impression that these particles float on the water. Sincerly I never see this phenomen in real.

No it is another possibility that is excellent too, the problem is that I can not do this effect without post prod, I have not managed to make this effect of blur. Currently I do another rendering with more vegetation and a little fog just to see.
Title: Re: Jo Kariboo (wip's)
Post by: Hannes on March 17, 2018, 10:22:31 am
Ulco, I'm not sure, but I guess your example shows a long exposure image. But maybe this might look cool as well. This could be done by adding a blueish self illuminated shader masked by a PF and maybe some painted shaders to the water.
Title: Re: Jo Kariboo (wip's)
Post by: Jo Kariboo on March 17, 2018, 04:59:09 pm
I added vegetations and I removed all the small luminous particles and modified a little the shore with light sources. I made a rendering with a little fog, but it's not terrible and above all it adds nothing.
Ok, I stop here before crunching the computer out the window.
See you soon.

Agree with Andy, having the veg added gives it context as well...and I stopped mine for the same reason in addition to being happy with it.

Ok I'm done with the shore for this one. Here are the last two pictures.
I am considering for the moment to send for the challenge one of the last 4.

Thank you for sharing with us and you have a difficult decision before you!  :)

Indeed difficult. I'd prefer the very last one.
Title: Re: Jo Kariboo (wip's)
Post by: Dune on March 22, 2018, 10:20:14 am
They're great..... but I'd probably prefer one without the top branches. At least the two small branches in the lower right area should go, they kind of seem duplicated and hang in the air, sort of. Difficult decision, indeed. And to be very honest, there were iterations before these that I really liked (21, 23, 26)... but I'm not a judge.

Those foreground branches are indeed not to be considered as 'photo realistic'.
That said you have some really good looking images in this thread, so you definitely
have some cool options to choose from.

A first experience on my part of a glowing beach.
Shrub and herbs: SILVA 3D
trees: XFROG
starry sky: moodflow


Awesome! Looks like those one types of jellyfish all washing up on shore during their mating season.

Staying with this shape 21 is indeed worthy and I think 26 is well worth exploring but time's compacting...for this comp at least.

Thank you all for taking the time to give your opinion. I realize that there is not an picture that officially stands out of the lot and which is unanimous. I will possibly reworked on one of the last versions not that I find it higher at the level of the clif of previous ones but that it has at the level of the composition and its elements some more accomplished thing and it is necessary that I realize there is little time left to work.

I like the last render the best as well and have to agree with J Meyer that your near tree models are looking very cg. It could be a lighting thing to fix?

Thanks J Meyer, Hetzen and all the others, finally for the image that I am posted for the challenge, I eliminated the trees in foreground and branch near the water.

The contest ends soon and although the images that follow are not part of my favorite, I still wanted to share them.

Yes your lighting is very photographic. That sun on the horizon in the desert with the wisps of cloud looks very convincing.
