Two Tahoe's in KS2
« on: August 01, 2010, 04:06:58 pm »
Hi all;

These are my first KS2 renders from an imported model.  I have always used my own geometry, but now that I can use obj's and others, it's fun playing around.  The Tahoe is from Digimation, free on a CD included with 3D Artist Magazine.  Unfortunately the mapping is rather crude, like "all the glass", so there's not a lot of control over materials.  On my own work I always map extensively (over-map) just to have more control over material properties.

The backplates are from a series I created in KS, not Photoshop.  I use a variety of ground planes, table-tops, and various shapes.  I then apply a variety of materials, usually frosted glass or matte metals.  The HDR's give a huge range of options as to the play of light and reflections.  It's great to have a whole folder of these backplates ready for almost any studio situation.  The last three images illustrate it, with the "photostand" small to give an idea of the shape.

Very nice - check "sharp glossy reflections" in the Environment tab to get a cleaner reflection when working on shiny materials with light roughness.
