Yafaray contest 2011, Jaktens Tid's entry

Post Fri Jul 15, 2011 3:54 pm

Hi guys, I'll be doing a fly getting caught by a chameleon. I'll be trying to make a dynamic image as opposed to my entry last year.

I started working on the chameleon yesterday and I'm almost done with him for the base mesh. The only thing I need to model before bringing him to sculpting is the long tongue.

Some printscreens of the progress:

Found some time to work a little more on this over the weekend.

I started modeling the fly. I still have to do the head and the wings. For now the mesh is split up in two parts, the abdomen and the thorax. The head will probably be separated too. Some screen shots:

Added the base mesh for the wings. I still need to add some details on the joint of the wings and the thorax though.. and curve the wings a little since they look quite stiff.. and add the head.. and some hair.. :D

Finally found some time this weekend to work on this. My modeling is almost finished. There are still some parts of the fly to do, but I decided to unwrap and start texturing the chameleon. The textures are all hand painted.

I'm afraid that with this shot 75% of your chameleon is not seen. Perhaps you should show his side a bit more and turn his head to the camera? Good luck!

My idea is to have the fly squashed in the camera lens so that's why I had such a frontal view. I agree that I should turn the body more, I'll try to find a better angle tonight. Thanks for the input!

That is really great! Love everything about it; the colors, textures, details, the lighting, the mushrooms! :), the psycho expression of the chameleon... Last minute badass entry... :D

Is this direct lighting?

btw,
the rules state the format should be png. I don't know how strictly rules are followed here (it's my first Yafa competition), but maybe it would be better if you repost in png format.

Thanks for the comments guys! :D
It was rendered with pathtracing and mixed with an AO pass.
Yeah I tried to upload a png but it was over the size limit. I guess i'll have to create an account on photobucket and upload again.
