Vray Christmas Tree

Just looking for a Christmas Card idea.  Looks like I ran out of lights.

Pen and ink drawings of Barns

These are four of my most recent drawings. They are currently on display at Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, Iowa.

Evil Killer Robot on the Prairie

This is either a quick study of the control of reflective elements of an Image Based Lighting System. Or a re-creation of a scene from Little House on the Prairie's episode 47 titled "Pa says we have to move."

More Work on Vray Gold Material and Something Blackish!

I kind of like this material. It is used in the gold and black shapes (But not so much in the shape in the back left. That is similar but different). I will try to post the materials tomorrow.

A little different.

Rosie of the Jetson's in Vray

For some reason ROSIE's left arm didn't render correctly.  I need to try to figure it out. This is just to see what Rosie looks like in an environment. It isn't framed or lit well, but that really wasn't what I was looking at.

Sofa work continued

I tried a few more things. I think I need a little more on the floor to make it a little more interesting.

Continued work on sofa room.

A little more work, or practice, on the sofa room.  I added some more items and worked on textures and lighting and post.Note: I didn't build this sofa, I got it from a class I was taking on

5 Step Render Workflow

This is from an online class that I'm taking on .  The instructor, Ciro Sannino, is excellent! Easy to follow and understand.

I didn't model the sofa, but I put everything else together as I followed along with one of the classes.

This is from another class.  In this image I just messed with framing, camera settings, and some post work.

This is a proposed duplex in Aspen. I used 3D Studio Max, Vray, Onyx tree, Photoshop and After Effects.

3D 360s or Stereoscopic 360s made with Vray

These are a set of images I made using Vray.  They are 360 stereoscopic images made to be view using Head Mounded Devices (HMD) such as the Oculus rift.  However, there are many devices that can view these as well. I use Mobile VR Studio to view them on my iPhone with the VR Box.

House Rendered with Vray 3.30.03

These are test images rendered with Vray 3.30.03 and composited in After Effects. I may have gone a little overboard with the glare and bloom.

Rendering another house with Vray

Another chance to do some vray renderings of a house. This was done with Vray 3.2.  I have Vray 3.3 but I haven't worked much with it yet. I didn't have time to put much post work into it.
