Re: Wire Chair

Nice model. Unfortunately one of my weaknesses is that I don't know much about "technical terms" so how you did it is lost on me :D and not very familiar with hexagon.

Do you render in Hexagon too or only for modeling?

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Wow! Coming along VERY nicely, haven't checked in for a while :) If you want to make a tractor for this scene, it should be very easy and low detail because you are not focusing on it in the foreground and can get by with a low poly model and a good texture... you should give it a try, it is a grea...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Very nice, Math Path. And as if tahnoak hasn't had enough people playing about with his image, here are a couple of, admitedly rough looking, mock-ups of what a different background image could do. PS: Thanks Rayman; it's good to be back. Example 1.jpg Example 2.jpg Breech.. Great to see you again ...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Hi, I'm really glad that tahnoak didn't ban us from his thread :) It's indeed very interesting discussion here. All your suggestions guys are even for experienced artists a true gold mine IMHO. I was in my young years a street painter sort of. You know these crazy guys with backpack full of chalk.....

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Here the sky need improvment for an artistic effect. Yes! You can get perspective for the clouds in many ways. First use a picture that has it and be sure the distant part of the picture is not below the horizon. If it is on a plane tilt the plane toward the camera. If it is a sky dome then flatten...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Great to see you back Breech ! Tahnoak the thing that srikes me is that the horizon of the cloud picture and the setup dont match... you need an athmosphere that gets thicker along the horizon line also the clouds get smaller there too you need moreperspective in your athmosphere.. Peter Peter, Yes...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

This may be the chance that it happened on this image. :) Much debate because it is not clear when something is made for artistic effect or if it is a technical error. critics often become adversarial. but it is interresting and constructive. At least more enjoyable than reading a technical review ...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

For this picture I agree that the sky should match the lighting better. (If you like this sky just flip the texture in Paint Shop or flip the plane it is on in TS.) For Tahnoak's style a certain amount of realism is needed, a large amount really, but the feel of the picture is where its value is. T...

Re: Early Winter on the Prairie

Okay, WOW.. I had no idea that this little image would draw so much attention and I TRULY appreciate the support and suggestions. Unfortunately I don't have time to address each one individually (but you know that I will) until the weekend. Thanks again for following along and helping look at things...
