Nice lighting / texturing! Those things look like they're definently not for children under 6 years old! Ouch!

excellent otacon, you are quickly becoming my mentor for scene lighting, pure mastery of the art, well done (again!)

Very cool. The table is amazing looking, and the lighting is great too.

excellent-
texture definition is great!
what plugins and tools did you used for this image?

otacon

Thanks. I didnt use any plugins. Some of the tools i used were drill, bevel, boolean, knife. All the textures are modeled on, so i didnt have to do any uv mapping, just make some rust and small variations on the metal.

I love the second shot! Nice composition, choice of lighting, background ... stuff that's beyond the 3D technique ... which is flawless.

Make a movie with these robot guys!

How long did these take to render? What is the speed of your computer? I'm new at this and I just wanted to get an idea of how long a realistic shot like this would take? Is it also possible to post settings and a wireframe?

Thanks!

The render took about 2 hours. I have a crap computer, celeron 1.1 GHz, 128megs of ram, and the video card is hardwired, part of the motherboard, intel chip, 32 megs of memory piece of crap. So, it doesnt take long to get realistic renders if you know how to light. I'll post a wirframe later, i have something else rendering right now.

ha, otacon you make me feel like i put my computer to waste id your working on a celeron.

Heres a wire. The settings for the lighting was backdrop radiosity, 100% intensity, RPE 16x48. Hdri was used to light.

Man if this doesn't say it all. Great work done on base line systems.
No wonder you almost never use FPrime! We need to get a fund started to buy you some RAM!

If you want to take the risk ever you might be able to get an OK system for cheap from here

www.auctiondepot.com

a little shaddy...but they've been around for years...

Great work!

So when do we start passing around the hat to get you some RAM?

Thanks wacom, my cousin made me a wishlist over at newegg.com....we got a pretty good config setup for under $800. Im still about $30 short on cash....ive been saving up though for a while. Still, its the artist not the hardware that makes it happen!:D

First of all, fantastic job! Congrats, comrade :)
Second, I like the fact that you're using such a slow machine, because it proves that you don't need a dual P4 and 2048 ram to make good renders :) In fact it is better because you're calculating polygons and make complicated things a bit simplier, by making wire more effective and so on...
But of course you should upgrade just a bit, but not too much otherwise you will create something that we will be jealous about :) Just kidding :)

Beautiful.

What a nice design. What really strikes me is your color scheme. Those warm eathy tones are perfects together. Your light color temperature make the render look like an older faded film stock.

You eye for composition is great too. Nice placement of elements for balance.


no crits here, just a nitpic:
In the second render, the shadow of standing robots arm is too sharp (on other robot also).
Perhaps it could use few more irregularities. a few nicks, dents smudges, worm places to show the character of time on these old toys.

Great job. Would love to see more of your work.

Got any more tidbits about the render?

:)

Thanks carbon. Not to much to say about the render, except that i did a bit of post work in paint shop pro to give it the look it has now. The original render is a lot darker. Heres the render straight outta lightwave.

Awesome, from the cloth on the table to the excellent DOF effect, absolutely gorgeous !!!
Is that LWs built in DOF or Digital confusion ?

I added the dof in paint shop pro.
