Title: Over the river - Old and new 02
Post by: Kadri on December 15, 2009, 08:15:06 am
Hi,

This black and white image is a photocopy of one of the pictures i made in 1982 . The other one is new .

The background was made in TG2 . The plane in Lightwave . The plane is made by me.
Only the body of the pilot is a astronout model from the Nasa site .
I made the head (changed one of the default heads  :) )  in " MakeHuman 0.9.1 RC1 " .It is barely seen anyway...

A little pixel pushing here and there of course .

The major problem was that i use  free TG2 .I made 6 tiles of the background and then stitched them together.
I am not really satisfied with this image . But changing  things is painful in this way.
Maybe when i buy TG2 in the future i will update it.

Cheers.

Kadri.

I think Mr. Lucas might have missed someone to work at Industrial Light and Magic.

Thanks guys  :) But there are really many things to improve .
I haven't slept last night. Thus i can barely  write now.

The ground is in fact very basic ( but was very time consuming ) . It is a big picture that i made from Google Earth .
Stitched many of them together . The forest too was made in this way . It is becoming a bad habit  ;D
The image is 20 000 x 6 000 pixel wide . With a little (in my opinion a little to much ) displacement .

Cheers.

Kadri.

I like the TG2 background too. It's always good to see TG2ers exhibiting their own models in a TG scene. Given your obvious skills I think buying the full version of TG2 will be an excellent move on your part.

Really well done, Kadri- the drawing and the Terragen background.  Great perspective.  Linda
