My contribution - desktop Wallpaper

Hi guys,

Whenever I adopt a new distribution, I usually create a distro specific wallpaper for the rest of the guys, so this is my Archlinux contribution. I hope you like it.

Re: My contribution - desktop Wallpaper

It's done in Cinema4D 11.5 running in wine. I could never get the hang of Blender (I have it installed, and keep paying a visit, but the workflow is just too alien to me).

Edit: Oh, and with the help of Inkscape and uniconvertor to get te accurate font and logo.

I was wondering because I have been learning blender for a bit now, and also messing with various renders like Luxrender and the like.

Its a great render, btw, very impressive!

Re: My contribution - desktop Wallpaper

Thank you. Glad you like it. A couple of hints to improve renders, if you want.

IBL (Image based lighting) with one or two real lights for specularity, highlights and shadows make a world of difference, and a render can only ever be as good as the lighting and textures, no matter how good the modelling is. You can make a poor model look good, and a good model look poor, simply with lighting and textures. I'm by no means an expert, but I've picked up a few things over the years (been playing with 3D rendering since Cinema 4D v4 on my Amiga all those years ago) smile

Yeah I have been learning not only texturing, but also how to use compositing hardcore the past month ... makes a whole world of difference!

FTW.  Haven't heard of anyone using Cinema in such a long, long time, haha.


If you're reading this; you're awesome.
