Sometimes beings from extra dimensions come with extra surprises... including extra horrible halitosis.

`delya :heart: and I decided to collaborate on a work that went beyond the typical way we did things. Normally she draws the concept, and I make the 3D version of it. Not this time!

Delya drew the concept, I rendered one of them, and she drew in the other. Can you guess which ones????????????????????????????????????????????????????¿


Technical Details</b>

Made in Maya, rendered in Mental ray. It was lit with one area light on the left, and two bounce cards on either side. There was also a special orange reflector underneath the pink one to make it more vibrant, since the green light from teh ground dulled out the pink. Special techniques had to be used to get proper shadowing on the pink one and the ground, since there wasn't any blue one visible. I actually had to model a bunch of dummy objects in the basic shape of the blue zurd, so that it could shade and shadow properly. The background had to be rendered separately because of a glitch that doesn't allow me 100% full control over indirect lighting.

Delya used all freehand, no vector tools. There were a total of 16 layers in Photoshop CS2.


A couple viewport shots: cheater, more cheating, lighting setup

A couple layer examples: No Blue, MATERIALIZE

I really like this~! This is a great combination. When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it looked like both were 3D but to my surprise, they weren't!

Brilliant~! :+fav:
