You know what would be really handy, photos of models/objects that have depth information and/or normal directions

Depth information should suffice as from that alone you can generate a normal map and that gives you all kinds of power like relighting a photograph from different angle, shadow casting, adding reflections/specular. At the moment integrating a photo into a 3D comp either still or worse; in motion, is a real pain in the ass/impossible

2D Comp work in general just looks so flat when they try and integrate photographic elements.

I'm going to have a go at faking it, I imagine I will be largely unsuccessful, but I won't know till I try

:-)



check out ZbornToy if you want a better idea of what I\'m on about. In fact just check it out anyway, It's freaky

Heres the original photograph


Heres a real quick draft


It works better than I thought, It's far from perfect I only messed about with it for a few minutes. It definitely brings greater flexibility if you want to quickly integrate an images lighting, and you can adjust the lighting in realtime.



If it was done properly you could even change camera angle somewhat



More refined model (started from scratch using another method, It's still really basic)






Really It's amazing it works at all given how crude the model/displacement is... I\'m not even going to show the mesh as It's so bad

:-P



To be done properly/easy it should be done in either Modo 301 or Zbrush, or by someone more skilled at modelling than me

whatever way you look at it, It's a damn site faster/more powerful than hand painting in lighting changes, at least for organic shapes

Original (badly masked, just for a quick test) followed by my alterations


Again using a very rough model

funny.. high school biology, how was it several years later till I found about a whole new organ I did'nt even know we had..
makes me wonder what other organs they forgot to mention in the curriculm

lol to computers that advertise dual core so you can virus check and work at same time
woo! faster computer, more virus checking, who wouldn't buy for that reason!
surely.. faster cpu = more viruses

buy a dual core! 1 core for your viruses/adware/trojans the other for your apps
perfect, what a way to sell a computer


huh... It's alright for some... £1000 for 8 hours...

He is good though, not that there's much of his work on his site


Funny what difference a bit of makeup can make:
