    That looks pretty cool! Not sure if it's the lighting though, but he looks a bit flat. Maybe you need to reduce the distance for the SSS. He's a reptilian, should be less than human skin.

    Also, let me know if you want a different voice in there. I have a good microphone here. Also no VO artist though :tongue:

    Bit of a fix - most of the issue is that his head is tilted waaaay back in the rigging pose so you cant see his snout. once that back to normal his face will be much improved. vqlr6293or5u.png

    Gotcha. Still, that looks much better. You can see the detail in the skin.

    First 40 seconds, "Holy crap, that was amazing!"

    Remaining 20 seconds, "That John Williams' score still sounds pretty good."

    Also I've been working with Eric Henry on some of this stuff - He took my greeble library that I've slowly been putting together and made this fantastic version of a background ship briefly seen in ROTJ. It looks spectacular! and I love the crap outta it. I did the materials on this version.

    Damn, that all looks really good. I still have to do my own renders and make a Star Wars ship. Trying to finish the Enterprise first.

    I'm guessing the blue glows is on purpose to simulate old film?
  • StarshipStarship231 São Paulo - BrasilPosts: 1,757Member
    Uau!!! Brilliant work Howard old bean!!
  • Howard DayHoward Day398 Posts: 392Member
    Okay! Update - here's a few more ships in turnaround: I really love how they're looking.

    I saw that on youtube yesterday. Very nice designs. The film effect to the right is a bit distracting I think. Maybe tone it down a bit.
  • Road WarriorRoad Warrior176 Posts: 776Member
    Howard, great to see you back at it. Such fantastic work too!

    Did I see Coolhand pop in a few pages back?

    As awesome as all this artwork is, Howard you are the man, Coolhand reemerging from the ether is a true highlight of this thread.
  • CoolhandCoolhand241 PhobosPosts: 1,273Member

    Glad you decided to post here :) I was the one asking about the denoiser ;)
  • Howard DayHoward Day398 Posts: 392Member
    Nice! And yeah- the Nvidia denoiser is friggin magic, man. It does tend to work much better in stills than animation, specifically in dark, ambient lit areas, but anything primarily lit by directional light it's *amazing*.
    Here's the latest on that, fresh off the GPU.

    There's some errors, and I really want to up the punchiness of the surface impacts from the X-Wings...and maybe throw in some Proton Torpedoes.
