Trying Christian Fröhlich model under different lighting solutions, so some test renders and play-a-rounds, and here is another one of them :)

The background is a photo-mash.

Well, the death star is lit from the right and the background mountains from the left, so maybe it is a WIP!

Wiz 17th May 2015 07:01 AM

Yeah I noticed that, but if I corrected it by flipping the mountains or the Deathstar for some reason it just didn't look as good, so thought sod it - no one will notice! ;)

Apart from the already mentioned lighting issue on the death star, I love it.

I like how R2 is looking at the photographer.

Wiz 17th May 2015 04:10 PM

Hehe, yeah; likes to get his good side ;)

Nice. That certainly looks dynamic, and it all blends well together. Unusual? Yes. But that's good and it works!

I'm going to give a special commendation for blending the Death Star into the sky correctly. I don't know how many sci-fi scenes I've seen where you can see the dark side of a moon or planet or whatever in the sky, and it's darker than the color of the sky. You'd think people never looked up at the moon during the day.

Wiz 19th May 2015 01:17 AM

:) thank you, and the moon in the daytime was indeed my point of reference for blending the Death star :)

Yep, exactly right.

I don't know how you guys do it but every month is a challenge to decide who makes the front-page. Some of you had multiple images, each of which could and should have been there. So here's a huge congrats on this being one of the images for this months change over.

I have found the best way to do the engine exhaust light is a volumetric spot light pointing at the back of the engine with the cone angle set so that it fits inside the engine. so if this is a scale model set the light at 5 meters away with a 5 degree cone angle with a 20 meter falloff length. here is an example: [IMG]] and to animate it add turbulence on the z axis. but the image looks great. im going to remake the scene from TFA when i figure out how to setup the partcles for the water wall rising from the vacuum created by the xwing.
