Bit of Green

Not much to break a hiatus with. But the OCD dictates we must go in chronological order.
This is the same compositing setup as the previous post, just with different colors and models. Click the image for a larger version or here for the full 1920x1080 version.
 Kitt Color Experiment

I don't think the Minimate vehicles get enough love so I started experimenting with the KITT model I made a couple years ago. I also found this interesting Blender compositing setup. Combine the two and this is the result.

 Blue Experiment 1
December 7, 2010

I'm working on a somewhat large Minimate rendering project and I've hit a bit of a initiative block. As my mind wanders, I start to play around with various material settings to see what happens. Sometimes they look pretty cool.

It's nothing high-concept or earth-shattering, but I like it. Click for a 1600x1080 version.

I hope to start adding these 'on the workbench' type posts on a more regular basis. Though I need to come up with a better way to describe them, preferably one that I didn't steal from Boyd.

ADDED:I think "Lab Table" is a good replacement.

Here's a short post to exhibit a Minimate Jolly Roger request. You see, thar be all kinds of Minimateers out in the depths. Even the scurviest lot deserve a flag to sail under.

 JP1000 & Friends #2
August 24, 2009

Shortly after the first illustrated JP1000 ep was 'published' I started working on the second. Using the lessons I learned from the first image, I think I came up with a pretty good looking second one.

Things are a bit simpler, there's not as much going on in the background. The big change was the addition of shading. It's not perfect by any stretch, but it's a learning process not a learning... uhm... jump to... perfectness.
