Default Challenge Weeks - 9 - 10 Dice!! - 27.02.2014, 03:32

If we have consistent participation I'll be adding a prize. For now these are just for fun, and learning. Please don't hesitate to visit, and try out any of the previous challenges.

As far as the challenge goes try modeling accuracy, experiment with shading, give a go at lighting, or make the focus something more your own design. The intent is to give everyone an idea to start from, and a goal. In the world of art, and design the idea is generally the hardest thing.

Work has been busy, and long hours lately. So I'm sorry for missing the weekly inspiration. We will continue to have the challenges go two weeks. I think it actually gives people more time to experiment with the project.

This week is a set of dice. I loved the visual composition of this image. I can't wait to see what people come up with!

My first stab - my dice are way to perfect and pristine to be interesting - will have to work on giving each piece and face unique character - adequate starting point

Well here is my try.
Modelled and textured on sculptris to get it a little more organic, redered on cheetah.

Here is my result for the dice challenge.

I had fun and learned some things while doing this. Thanks for the practice. All modeling, lighting and DOF effects rendered with Cheetah.

I never heard the fan on my Macbook Pro 15 inch until I did the DOF for this render freaked me out I did not even know I had a fan.

I did the dice a while ago and I wanted to play with caustics...
So 500 renders later.

I did a little post level adjustment on this one.

Hi Eric, Hi Uncle, nice work all round Test renders, tell me about it, Caustics or DoF can lead to rather extended render-times and quite a few trial shots, as was the case for me too

Great to see some different takes and builds for this weeks contest as well

Default Bits of old bone - 04.03.2014, 14:41

Decided last year's Dice looked a bit too 'machine made' and they were rather 'Poly' saturated, decided to have a go at a low 'Poly' version for a more organic look, including the extra round edges, and yes the opposite sides do add up to 7.

All done in Cheetah, background is an HDR image, everything else is procedural, finally figured out how to do a 'straight' woodgrain effect… capable as ever of missing the staggeringly obvious (duh). Balancing woodgrain, shadows and reflections was fun (all in the render not in PS), all worthwhile in the end though
