Supermarine Spitfire modeling - Work in Progress

One day an idea came to my mind and it’s now being realized through that beautiful airplane model. It reminded me as I was a kid I got my first plastic models. They were poor quality but  it was a great fun to join all parts into one shape. Recently I decided to switch from low scale 3D models to large ones. It’s a relative impression, because in virtual 3D space all objects can have the same size, no matter how they’re big in real world. However the perception still imposes the connotation that small is small…

One big problem I’ve encountered is a lack of truly accurate plans/blueprints on the internet, weird.  So 50% of detail I obtain through some reference photos. It takes  more time to get that proper look but… that’s the current chalenge.

Virus is back

High Resolution Illustration

Image above is a path of concept evolution for that final virus image below. I had to re-learn  Blender 3D because I’ve dropped it some time ago due the version and interface changes.

New renderer engine Cycles inspired me to get familiar with that changed interface and add more graphics to microstock portfolio. It took some time to recall the way it works, keystrokes and tricks. But it was pretty quick process.

The worst part was rendering, which took finally around 100 hours, two composite passes and some postprocessing. Cycles is physically correct renderer so it needs time to work, also it requires other tricks than Blender Internal to optimize the speed.

And this is the final image, available for download

Updated dice sets with blue and red version, next dice cluster this time shows an incomplete green die.

Looks like Fotolia’s watermark strongly protects some of my images;)..

Dice-o-matic

White dice From time to time I update my dice designs with new one. There are about six new illustrations with die as a subject not only conceptual also typical isolated.

Besides of metaphors those cubes are useful as  pure objects so I do supply such  type of image.  Available in green, white, red and also single big green/red dice cluster (as an update of previous three illustrations).

Craps table Also the Craps Table illustration, my all time WIP (work in progress)  got the new third version with shallow DOF (Depth of Field). Slightly changed lights and colors (there is completely different light environment used) and  different objects arrangement. I changed the dice material to look more glassy.

I’m sure the next image of that series will be available soon with different view angle , arrangment and few other effects.

Abstract dots There is also virus related metaphorical stuff updated, with gadgets like syringe and baseball bat.

New abstract dotted spheres, new SEO metaphor variant with floats instead of empty menu frames (see previous post). High resolution images available.

And what I  found is that great Dice rolling machine, almost nothing happens here but it’s  fun to look at and that thing works as the random dice rolls generator for play-by-email games:

Thanks for reading and see You soon at the monthly photo stock report.
