I felt this new image warranted a new post.

Started this one on the plane home from the holidays. Had fun comping this one at crazy 4K rez. I'll post the crops too.

Absolutely fantastic. :thumbsup: These are the kinds of renders that make me want to get back into LW.

Very nice. Seemless comp. Really like the wizened mustachioed (Wilford Brimley) face.

After looking at it for a while, decided to make a few additions to the comp.

I think it helps.

Ok. :)

Btw... is everything CG in this one? Me and a friend is wondering if you used any type of backplate or if everything is 100% CG.

Great stuff ! I like it a lot.

How did you manage colors in this render ? Color tones are very well balanced. Did you use some film color profile ?

Nice call. I did do an overall color managed grade in the compositing stage in afterfx. With that said the raw-straight-outta-lightwave render is pretty darn close.

Attaching the untreated render of Nico.

Cool! Well done! :)

Would be really nice to see what is CG and what is backplate. Character and spaceship aside, it is really hard to tell what is CG and what is not. A wireframe printscreen from the camera POV would be really awesome, if you don't mind?

Cheers!

Looks great. Is that background all 3D?

wesball

Character is CG. Background is photo.

A year ago it was a personal project. Now I've got a few more people involved. Hopefully we'll be using hollywood money to get this out. Will know in a few weeks. :)
