  8. Here is a wireframe to final gif of my mosquito image contest entry. This image was 100% generated in A:M with NO Photoshopping at all... not even a levels or curves. Image took about 4 hours in all, 2 hours in 2 days... I like to 'come back' to a project with fresh eyes after sleeping on it overnight- that is when I decided to add the hand. A:M's hair was used on the CU arm and on the mosquito- with a little grooming on each to get it to bend in the right directions. Image was rendered with Depth-of-Field ON in multipass with 100 passes, taking about 32 minutes. The part that worked surprisingly well for me was the lines in the wings, I employed 'render as lines' feature and was very happy with the results. Light in the sky for the sun simply has Lens-Flares turned ON at 10% intensity. The texture for the mosquitos body is a Darktree material... TX Abstract/absCreepy with a bump setting pushed up. Rob asked me in the interview why I made him look menacing... and I was really just going for photorealism this time and the photo reference I had googled up looked menacing. Plus, when you think about it- mosquitos are something to be feared... they offer very little benefits like a bee does, they are flying parasites that can smell you from 20 yards away and are able to land on a vieny area to bite you. The bites leave swollen itchy red spots and can transmit lethal diseases such as typhoid, HIV, malaria and more. CLICK ON IMAGE TO SEE GIF ANIMATION
  9. INSECT! We are going to have a Summer image contest! The exact details will be firmed up in the near future but here are three things to get you going... 1) Topic: Insect! Your all-A:M-modeled and all-A:M-rendered image should be an insect. It can be realistic or stylized, scary or funny, authentic or fantasy but... it has to be an insect! No spiders, no crustaceans, no myriapods! We want to compare insects to insects. Your image may contain other models. For example, your insect might be sitting on a leaf. However, the insect should be the primary object of attention in your image. Insects are the most numerous and varied life form on earth so you should not be lacking for possibilities. 2) Due date: July 31 August 9 You have most of the summer to work on your summer image contest image! We will have a vote to choose a winner. 3) Prizes: Prizes are TBD but there will be something awarded to the top ten entries. Don't sit this one out! Get splining and knock us out with your most neat-o, insect-o work!
