I’ve been trying out Keyshot as well. Loaded in my lowres mesh, and rendered a turntable. I was able to set up the scene in less than 5 minutes, and I had never touched the software before. Quite impressive.
Keyshot reminds me of the era everyone used Grayscalegorilla’s presets in Cinema4D. Not a big fan of it, but it definitely has it’s purposes. I just prefer to have more control over everything.Read More
I have been comparing UVLayout and Unfold3D today. Not only is Unfold3D’s algorithm a lot better (without doing any tweaking in both programs) – it is also quite a bit faster. The edge-loop and shortest path selection modes are a big plus as well.
I’m definitely going to stick with Unfold.Read More
I’ve been reviving an old project, Gauthier the sad chef. Because I felt like it, I decided to overhaul the whole character and transform him into a happy chef.
The concept is as following:
He pretends to be a real chef, but actually he’s just wrapping up happy meals at McDonalds. He hopes to work for the best restaurant in Europe one day – but as we all know, everyone has to start at the bottom.
I feel like I have almost wrapped up the blocking-out stage, so I decided to throw in some lights and do some texturing to get a better overall idea. Because I’m far from pleased with the background, I’m going to try and shoot a real fastfood kitchen somewhere downtown next week. Not sure if this will work out, but I feel like it’s definitely worth the try (I’ve got access to a canon 5D mark II – which is far superior to anything I’ve used until now. Exciting!)
Next up is fixing some of the textures on the boxes, sculpting the actual chef (this guy needs a zillion fixes as well) and giving the teapot some legs so it becomes a toy, rather than just a regular Utah teapot.Read More
