Re: Autodesk is going crazy?

You look at it from the wrong direction. For Autodesk, Softimage isn´t on par with Max and Maya. They seem to look at it more like being something like mudbox. A rather specialized companion-tool to their larger packages. Mudbox and Motionbuilder aren´t in that list as well. Max and Maya are playing...

Re: Human Head Experiment

Ok...after seeing her with texture and eyes i do have some things, that i think are off: The eyes look slightly too small for me. I don´t know, if thats anatomically the fact, but at least it looks like that. The lips, especially the upper lip is way to uniform and straight. The texture you got ther...

Re: Skin Shader Workshop

Try to check this with your own face or the face of people you meet. Usually its the area of the forehead and nose - known as T-zone - which are more specular, because most peoples skin tends to be more greasy and thus more shiny. Lips can also be an area of increased shininess because of several re...

Re: Human Head Experiment

Great progress. After your corrections in ZB i really start to like it. You were right with the proportions. Great changes! I would like to see her with eyes again to judge the face as a whole :)

Re: Illustrations for an exhibition stand

Thanks ;) It took approximately 2 weeks to get everything done. One Overnight-Shift was necessary before the final deadline to get everything done in time. :) Thanks for the hint with that error...too bad, that this text is "hardcoded" in the movie...don´t know, if we find the spare time to fix and ...

Illustrations for an exhibition stand

Hi i´d like to present you some work, that my partner (mtea) and i finished lately. These images where created on comission for a company. They gave us some rough concepts on how they wanted the images to look like and we tried to bring in our own ideas to make the most out of this concepts. Working...

Re: Mitsubishi_Evo_X_Tuned

Not bad...not bad at all :) Really nice work, though i see a few minor things her and there: - The wheels do not have enough room in the wheelhouses. If the car whips, the tires will definitely touch the borders of the wheelhouses. So i would lift the chassis some aditional cm. - The carbon creates ...

Re: Redi-Vivus.com - Reloaded

First of all...thanks! Really thank you. I have to admit, that i doubted to see this site going online ever again, since it had been set to restricted access during the last year. But it´s great to see the wealth of great tutorials for free all online now. I´m still waiting for a day with a tutorial...

Re: XSI for arch viz?

I'm really sorry Luc-Eric, but I disagree with you, like many others will. Although Softimage/XSI was build with animation in mind, Archviz is a field a lot of us work in from time to time. Or all the time. The lack of proper materials, lighting tools, units, measurement tools, primitives, etc. in ...

Re: Craft Rig 1

thanks a lot. Finally a good rig to make my first steps in animation, as the XSI-CharacterRig-Sample doesn´t seem to be very good in my eyes..

I will definitly try do learn as much from it, as i can.

Re: Villa

and how long did you work on this one?

I like the night-shot more. The grass is a bit too constant and equal to look convincing. Same thing with the floor tiles.
