Still Life Final

Today has been spent playing around on Nuke and learning how to add a depth of field.

Finished the final render and compared it to the final photo. There’s definitely some subtle differences I can see but I’m proud of where I got to for a first time.

WIP Rendering: Day 1-3

Almost there guys! Day 1 I had to quickly re-texture the Paint tube because it didn’t quite line up to the model. The UVs were a bit stretched as well.

Day 2 I began playing with render settings and finishing up and update pre production work (I had some missing information and basically had to redo and update things) Also did a cool thing with my teacher where we put my canvas on a lazy susan and took photos of it from different directions. Seeing as I couldn’t sculpt my canvas exactly how it really was, there was an article we read about “Photometric Stereo” (Do check it out!)

We placed a light on one side and took photos so the light would capture the tiny little bumps on my canvas differently. We put the photos we thought were good onto photoshop and basically recreated a normal map! It wasn’t as hard as I’d originally thought it’d be and it’s as close as I could get it to the actual bumps on the canvas.

And now I’m here on Day 3 rendering out settings and putting in the final touches to my Pre Production document. This is what it looks like so far! You can actually see the weave of the canvas on the normal map.

WIP Still Life: Day 3-4 Texturing

Hey guys! Sorry I couldn’t update yesterday BUT I did end up doing some work during the Easter Holiday.

I textured the Ipad Pro on day 3 using substance Painter but I didn’t know I was going to be able to go about having that glass on top of the actual screen. Later found out from a classmate that I could just use the shaders on Renderman (Pixar Shaders)

Day 4 was about trying to get the other objects as close as I can to the actual photo as well as getting the lighting and shadows down. \

Below is just a snapshot of Day 3 on Substance Painter, and a quick render from Day 4 (using Pxr).

WIP Still Life: modelling day 2 

So it’s been quite a frustrating day dealing with triangles and 5 sides shapes in my topology.  I’ve sculpted my canvas a little and I’ve done a base of the paint tube included in the picture.  Managed to scan and email myself the painting on the canvas.  I’ll have to pay a lot of attention to the detail on it.  

Also managed to have the green screen room to myself to take photos.  

NOTE: the photos taken aren’t professional,  everything was done by me. 

NOTE TO SELF: I’ll need more light on the right side of the picture,  it’s a bit too dark under the paint tube.

Hey guys! Sorry for not uploading in a while, I’ve been really sick lately but I’m recovering now.

It’s been really busy in class recently because of the assignment we’re currently going through. Brief description down below.

STILL LIFE

The Job

  • With the team, each member is to help set up, light and photograph the scenes. Then recreate the still life composition in 3D.

Time given

  • 4 weeks.

It’s been a week since I’ve started, and I thought I’d only start posting on here when I get to the 3D modeling stage. All the pre-production I’ve done, I’ve posted elsewhere.

I’m a bit behind everyone else (being bed-ridden for two days), I still haven’t created my final still life composition and taken the pic but I have taken photos from my phone on different composition ideas with the objects I’ve decided to use.

The Theme 

  • Contrasting Themes (E.g modern vs traditional, soft vs hard, etc. )

I’ve chosen modern vs traditional, using Technology (the IPad Pro) and traditional, the painted canvas and paint brushes. I’ve already modeled the Apple Pencil and the IPad Pro 9″7. I’ve still got the canvas, paintbrush, paint and possibly if I have time, the paint splurges to go. I’ve also done a quick painting on Procreate to feature on my IPad when I texture it. (the one used on the IPad compositions was just a filler)
