Good stuff Martin. I'm very impressed all you guys.

I wonder if its worth disclosing what other apps were used- given that was a requirement? If someone used an app that someone else couldnt afford, its kinda imbalanced. Knowing the pipelines would help voters make clearer choices I think. Else I would've used particle illusion to set fire to my whole scene :)


don't worry. Most users just used Cheetah3D + Photoshop, some also Illustrator. But no one used a special particle system tool.

Ok great! Hey well done all of you! Looks awesome and its good to show Martin how successful our work is with the tool he made. Good stuff.

Hi there.

I'm really impressed of the quality of your renders - it is really incredible!
And your ideas - wow, very cool stuff!

I wish all of you good luck for voting!

Very impressive.:icon_thumbup: :icon_thumbup:
I'm not ready yet to challenge with these "masters"... maybe next year.
Thoug my vote has gone to [secret] I want give a special mention to Ian and Satoru.

crikey :)

lovin' everyone's work well done. I always love Satoru's characters, i would love to know how you do the funky Manga hair. And… ian… how the flip did you do those feathers is it a displacement map?…

anyways, once again very good work. Good luck everyone.
Hi Martin,

is there a way that everyone who has voted could see the results or is it a secret till December 1th?

Like it is now, it is very thrilling ... hehehehehe

What I don't understand is how Satoru Imatake got those wrinkles in the clothes.:confused:
i reckon he used a displacement modifier… the clever chap :)

all you need to do is export your uv's as a pdf and open it in photoshop. then draw some wrinkles in shades of grey as if you were creating a bump-map. Then in cheetah add a displacement modifier and select your newly created displacement map. then subdivide you model about 4 or 5 times and you should see your model change shape :)

You can do it all without having to touch Z-brush, Z-brush just makes it a bit easier :) although i don't seem to be able to export displacement maps since i downloaded the new version :(

OR… he may just have created his model so that the polygons were all flowing in the right direction.

Either way it would be great to hear how he did it from the man himself :)
