[ COMPLETE ] Challenge #10: Take a photo

(1/8) > >>

Take a photo
The goal of this challenge is quite simple - take a photo and then recreate the scene in Anim8or. It may not be as difficult as it seems...

Step 1: Take a photo
That's the first thing you have to do. It can be a photo of anything (as long as it doesn't violate any law or the forum rules, of course). It doesn't necessarily have to be a new one, if you have an older photo you like, feel free to use it. It is not forbidden to use a photo taken by somebody else, but you should take your own one if you can. If you use a photo taken by somebody else, don't forget to give credits to the author.

Step 2: Get modeling
Once you take the photo, you have to re-create the scene in Anim8or. Try to get all the shapes, materials and the light setup as accurate as you can so your final render and your photo are almost indistinguishable!

You don't have to set the position of all objects and the angle of camera exactly the same, more important thing is to make all the materials and the lighting look real.

How complex?
Do not choose a complex scene. In fact it's recommended to choose a very simple one (for example a pencil and a spoon lying on a table), because the goal is to make your render look real, no matter how complex it is.

Your entry
Your final entry will consist of 2 images - the photo and the rendered image. Both images must have the resolution of at least 640x480 pixels.
The image has to be rendered in Anim8or. Minor post-production editing of the final image is allowed (for example adding a DOF blur in Photoshop).

This competition ends on Sunday, November 1st

Voting will be based on the level of realism in your final render. As mentioned above, the complexity of the scene is not important!

Alright, that's probably all you need to know. You can ask questions and post your WIP renders and final entries in this topic. Good luck!

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I second that!

One of the things I'd like to be able to do with Anim8or, I'll try to join this one...

It's pretty easy to find things in the office to model...just gotta choose which one to do!
