My Sci-fi/fantasy pics
« on: July 15, 2008, 06:30:12 pm »

Here are some pictures I've made for a game that I hope to make as soon as I know how to make a game. I have two years' experience in Anim8or, and these span my whole career.

were those pictures rendered with antialiased turned on?
It makes the render look a lot better.

Great job!

Yes, AA will make it look better, not just with the edges, but with the overall quality.
The models are quite low poly so don't seem that great (although are recommended for a game), and there seems to be some overlapping, though your texturing is better.
On the other hand, your scene setup is very good, and so should make for a good game.

All of these pics were rendered before I figured out what AA was for. I could go back and add shadows and other stuff, but I like to move on to other projects when I don't plan to use them for something else. Here's another photo, and I personally like not using antialiasing for this pic because it brings out the rugged look of the character.

That last pic is pretty sweet. I like the glowing "web" like effect.

I was really amazed when I figured out how to do that one. The colors were created using the default "CHECKS" material as a partial environment map.

By the way, this is where I get my textures.

I don't actually have the program, but they've got enough sample pictures. They all tile seamlessly and are a resolution 512 x 512.

If you wanna make it into a game, goto this site: http://www.3dgamestudio.com This will help you make it into a game, sadly you can not sell your game unless you actually buy the software. But it is way better than anything you can get for free... Those are some sweet images, but often hard to make out because of lake of shadows and stuff
