Quick Render Test by Julio-Lacerda Quick Render Test by Julio-Lacerda
After successfully using Blender to create a reference model for my latest picture with Kronosaurus, I've been playing around with it to see if I can exploit such skills to help me get a more 3-dimensional feeling in my illustrations, especially when it comes to lighting.
I did this (not-so) quick model of a Spinosaurus standing ankle-deep in milk water and got pretty happy with it. So from now on I'll probably create simple 3-d models before painting complex pictures, which is fun.

I hope this progresses further to the point where the great Julio can create CGI pieces

Can you perhaps fill with your scrapbook the digital drafts? I'd love to read them

Maybe add some webbing between the feet and hands? After all, they are semiaquatic, after all.

Awesome model and enviable skills - This is one of the hardest dinosaurs out there to "un-see" as a monster.

If I may critique slightly, the rear area may have had slightly more muscles&fat at the base of the tail...

Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Critique accepted! I had a bit of trouble figuring out how thick the base of the tail should be. The angle doesn't favour it much, but I'll beef it up a bit more.

Great job...I'm loving the gular pouch!

I think it just would need thicker legs and tail and slightly larger claws, for all we know at least the thumb was probably twice that size.

haha Thanks made! You should try it too! It's surprisingly easy to get the basics for 3-d modeling, provided you have the patience. Someone as artistically talented as you could surely make the leap to 3D media! :)

Cool idea. The spinosaur model is lovely in its own right. Very serene, although that might just be the milk :)

Nice job. I like the dewlap/pelican pouch, you don't see those (Without excessive spikes or wobbly things) on spinosaurs very often.
Reply
:iconjulio-lacerda:
Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, I don't particularly like the spikey, Todd Marshall-ish style. But it's always fun playing around with soft tissue, and since spinosaurs were gulping down huge fish back then, they might as well have had big dewlaps.

YOU CAN DO 3D MODELS NOW? That's like giving Hitler a doomsday machine, shit's about to go down. Amazing model! This will definitely improve your artwork--which IMO was already quite fantastic.

NICELY done and a good idea - is it quicker than making a maquette?
Reply
:iconjulio-lacerda:
Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Probably; I guess you can achieve a very precise shape and therefore precise shadows (which is mostly what I want) easier and quicker than by building a real model.

Then why don't you use Sculptris:? It's much easier than Blender I think... :o

Basically it's a place to drop half-done stuff, so you might drop your models there, just say hi first :D

Itīs probably just the missing details like scales and teeth, but this kinda looks like a monstrous spoonbill.
