Irene! WIP


Many of my creations come out of my head. Similarly, I look at them and name them whatever comes to mind. Last night I designed and began sculpting this piece out of my head and named her Irene. You can imagine my surprise when this morning, for the first time, I heard on the radio of Hurricane Irene's impending State-side touch down!

Spent a good part of the day doing this one. Based on a pencil drawing by the amazing Claire Wendling in her latest book, "Daisies Affogato All'Amarena."

Likeness fail

Both of these sculpts are based of the same model. Neither captures her beauty.

modo renders and Picasa filters

A few minor tweaks for tonight. I tweaked all 4 images using filters in Picasa. Not bad for a free browser! I will definitely be trying them out more. The lovely ladies in flight are rendered in modo.

The first, is white diffuse with cyan spec and reflection colors, blurry raytraced reflections. modo's default SSS filtering red. One Directional Light.

Additional lighting, reflections and background provided by Mr. Paul Debevec's Beach HDRI Probe. Thank you sir.

The other two have all the same settings plus a color map that I Polypainted in ZBrush.
Now I'm off to bed... G'night.
