Environment Assets: Clouds and Trees

Creating environment assets for a personal project  and searching for a cartoon 2d-like look.

The cloud had been created using a vertext color solution and meant to be use at composition times.  Couple of plugins had been used during this process. The one that allow you to render  vertex color in 3dmax  had been written by my friend and colleague  Andrew Oakley.
This asset had been created following this tutorial youtube.com/watch?v=hy_oP6DRPiY

This is a very early test of the foliage I am creating and  I am going to be using  for stills and cutscenes. More forest assets to come soon. Low polygon approach this time around.

Vray WIP-02 “Knowing me, knowing you” -A.P.-

Getting to know the basics Vray materials and how these react to the light and effects such VrayFog.

Now I am using cartoon styled  maps that I created from Zbrush sculpts.The same sculpted models had been decimated and used as LOWish polig assets to build the background.  The materials applied are composed by Diffuse/Normal/Glossiness/Heightmap/DirtMap.

The scene has been rendered using irradiance for the primary and  lightmap for  secondary bounce, in low/medium settings. Still testing to get rid of the grain without get into  long rendering times.

The render posted here is pretty raw, just a quick pass in photoshop for levels/colors and sharpening. Click in the image to view the hi-res version.

Next, Fast SSS for the skin, posing the model, add some more props and render with displacement.
