Gunther test 2

I made this about 8 hours after the last one, but didn't upload it until today due to a month out of country. I've done more with the nose, I've made the seam a little less noticeable, and increased the res on his bump textures. This is still far from being the final version, though. More comments?

Gunther Test Render

I made this guy in Poser, and I made the bump map from scratch. This is just a test render for a character to be imported into Max in another scene later on. As such, I'm posting this more for comments than ratings. So whatever you can think of that would help put the final polish on him would be great.

Cornetto

A cornetto, or zink in German, is a predecessor of the modern trumpet. Like a trumpet, it has a cupped mouthpiece; like a recorder or flute, it has holes that change the pitch of the instrument when covered. Instruments such as this were often wrapped in black leather, and their softer, less strident tone blended quite nicely with viols and woodwinds. This is second in my series of musical instruments, based on several originals in museums around the world, and modern reconstructions that I've played.

Clarino Trumpet

The great trumpet music of the Baroque period was not designed for today's valve trumpets. It was designed for simple "clarino" or "natural" trumpets with only two holes to help tune notes. A skilled player can hit every note needed for such music as Bach's second Brandenburg Concerto, including stratospheric heights not possible on any "modern" instrument.

Decoding a Secret Letter

Okay, here's the redo of the original image. Now I've got more stuff, and the context to indicate the scene is actually on a tabletop, rather than the floor. The original and remake put the total time spent at 2 days, with textures in photoshop, models in Wings3D, rendering in 3DS with MR (no GI or FG this time,) and image tweaking (specular bloom, contrast, etc) in Photoshop again.

Random Lenses

I did a random sub-d model in Wings3D of a lens-holding structure. I've got no clue where the idea came from. Took maybe 15 minutes to model, 15 minutes to finalize in 3DS Max, and about 15 minutes to render using MR. Fast turnaround, eh?

Strange Gallery

I used Max7, Mental Ray (with global illum and final gather) and /way/ too many boolean operations. Took maybe 5 minutes to render, since the MR samples were set pretty low. Everything except the backdrop has a flat color shader on it for ease of rendering.

Vermeer-like Room (Small)

Used Max7, Mental Ray with GI and FG, a "Stained Glass" maxscript (I can't remember who did it) and lots of squinting at paintings by Jan Vermeer. The border on the base of the wall is from a free texturemap pack, and the painting is Vermeer's "The Procuress." A larger render is on the way.

Protoplasm Stingrays

The "stingrays" were modeled in Wings3D, and the tunnel and textures (all procedural) were made in MAX. I rendered a high-res still frame at 1600x1200 that took maybe a minute, and a smaller-res movie of the guys flying down the tunnel that took all night to render. Vaguely inspired by, but not taken from, David Brin's short story "Bubbles."
