DS4P, no postwork

West Park (again!), with AoA's volumetric camera for effects. Single spot at the back and single linear point (non-shadow casting) above and forward.

Come to me my lovely! I will save you and make your part of my hareem!

Only if you get through to level 5 and beat the boss monster do you get the 'add to harem' option ;)

Damn it! I left my Magical Chalice of Hobo Juice back in the Sewers of Slaneesh during level 3. How am I going to get the boss monster drunk now? I'll never have a complete hareem now!

*rolls round screaming like those anoying kids throwing a paddy in Tesco*

Just go back to the save point by the edge of the Ignominious Pit of Amphibian Colonoscopy and restart from there? ;)

Love this one still working on using those dam cameras, but you got it down :)
SimonJM's avatar
I could have wished for a bit more shadow-casting through the 'fog', but it's not that bad all-in-all ... :)
TLCDigitalArt's avatar
At least you've' gotten the effects, so not saying about my attempts :(
SimonJM's avatar
Simple rules to start out with ... use a simple spot (with ray-traced shadows on). Plop something that will cast the shadows down between the spot and the volume camera. Add a distant light pointing into the scene (to add a modicum of 'ambience') at a lowish level (say 50% or so?) and ensure it is set not to cast shadows.

Tweak, slightly, the camera volume settings, leaving quality low whilst you do a couple of test renders, than wind it up to 75-95% for final version.

So many of his parties reached this point so quickly :D

Again, another tasty pic.

Looks like we are in front of a Mad Scientist Lab, or in a kind of Nowhere Hospital... Superb!
SimonJM's avatar
Thanks, glad you like it ... I suspect it may well be an asylum, somewhere ... :)

The start of a new dark story :fuzzydemon: :fuzzydemon: :fuzzydemon: with a lot of tension....
SimonJM's avatar
Dang, I seem to have painted myself into a corner ... ;)
Y-Phil's avatar

I love this, when a picture is giving ideas for one or more follow-ups... :-)
SimonJM's avatar
Yeah, now I gotta think ... thanks! ;)

Thank you!
