Very good scene. What amount of samples did you stop the render at? Looks like perhaps another 3000 samples would bring out some interesting caustics.
Thanks. I stopped it at 1300spp. Thanks for the suggestion. I will probably let it run some more if I have time.
Let me know if you decide to let it run more. I'd love to see how it looks after about 5000spp. That's usually the sweet-spot where Luxrender's incredible refractive caustics become truly manifest.
It's going to take a long while to get to 5000spp. Lol. My laptop does not have GPU acceleration. I'll run it when I'm not using my laptop and have no new scenes I want to render.
I like the pose, water looks refreshing too. Nice work
Really AWESOME render. The lighting is great, and the water looks extremely realistic. Perhaps if you let it cook a little longer, you would have some really incredible caustic effects, because I can already see them starting to make an appearance. Very cool.
Thank you! The water is actually a custom glass LuxRender material and I applied a bump map to the geometry to get the waves.
I love this song by LP similarly titled ,Great work ,A little more SPPs would make it better!
beautiful, thanks for the linking to the tut, I will give it a shot
