Great progress Janro! I love the concept and nice use of rigging :)

Tof, very well done! The machine looks more complicated than it actually is ;)

By the way, you have to put the individual images in the IMG tags rather than the link to the album if you want them to display on this page. I believe photobucket has the code all set up in a drop down menu when you go to your link, Tof

Thank you Raxx, for the comments and for the tip over Photobucket...and I have discover I can modify or remove my messages on the forum (Haha ;D).
Hey, my machine is not complicated, it's only a wehl, and it simply turns with the stream of the river... ;)
Janro, nice work and super idea, it seems like you have a nice humor!
And, a last thing, where is Headwax's work?

Here's the final (at least in time for the deadline) render. Click for full-view.



Quick [extra] Info:
-Render Time: 30 Mins (approx.)
-Use of AmbientOccluder
-Window scenery taken in Banaue Rice Terraces.
Will most likely fix up some errors sometime, like the thickness of the rope changing. I only realized it after rendering this scene. LOL

I like you're render Tof. It may be a simple machine, but I'm amazed at the amount of detail in the grass, texture and even the water droplets dripping off the machine ^^

Hello Neirao, I'm glad that you like my (big piece of) work, thank you.
For the color, on my monitor, the lighting of my render looks +/- like I wanted (autumn cloudy day with some sun rays, on my computer, the image you made seems like a sunny summer day 8))
But on the computer of my brother, it's really too dark...(same screen settings, brightness 50%, contrast 50%, RGB Auto)
Can the other viewers say how they see my final render? (and what are the settings they use for the monitor)

The bright version looks better on my screen, although it might be a little bit too bright IMO. I would make it something in between...

Great image by the way!

So, here is my final render ("Between")



Now I'm going to bed because tomorow I have a lot of work...and I think no more time for anim8or the next weeks (but for voting, yes).
Thank you Raxx for this challenge, it was pleasant and I have learnt a lot of new things.
Salutation to everybody, I hope to come back for a new challenge as soon as possible.

I preferred the first image, looked a lot more... sunshiney.
The new one looks too grey to me now.

Hm, it was too dark on my PC monitor but on my laptop screen it looked a lot lighter. Same with the new set, though on my PC monitor your last render seems a little greyed out. Perhaps fiddling with the contrast and saturation would help. I actually prefer neirao's brighter version on both screens. But I'm glad you enjoyed the challenge Tof ;)

I like your work Janro, though it doesn't look like he'll succeed in getting the cookie jar!



The competition has now ended! Please vote on your favorite entry!

Thanks. He'll need to find another way lol. This is actually the first time I really played around with material settings and I kinda liked how it turned out.

This was a fun one! I really enjoyed doing it. :D

Congratulations Janro for your entry, it is a great work (more creative than my one and your charachter looks cool). I hope to see other of your works here (this one was the first?)
