    Comment on Feedback for Tea Shop logo?

    Thanks so much for taking a look! The place is a cozy spot that seats under 25. It's usually quiet between "rush" hours so people like to enjoy a drink and the wi-fi without any disturbance....

    They're all lovely, but I'm concerned that most might be a bit too intricate for a logo. I like the turtle/pot best, but for some reason I want to see his spout on the right side.

    I was trying to avoid a literal approach as the shop's logo is basically just a teapot. It's a small, one of a kind tea shop nestled in with a bunch of big corporate chains so I figured providing some...

    Thanks for the kind words! I felt obligated to come up with a modern, trendy badge logo so it did come out awfully similar to Starbucks. I think I'd like to keep the circle border around the main image...

    There are some pretty good and knowledgeable people here as well as lots of students, beginners and people just asking questions. It's a good mix of professionals and newbies.

    As you've found,...

  • New 3d render

    Over the last few weeks, I've really been diving in to more 3d. This is from a Daz Studio Base and about 6 hours of custom tweaking and postwork.



    Daz Studio is a free 3d pose platform with prebuilt models. That seems to be the easy part. The hard part is making them look like more than plastic or lowres game graphics.

    Eventually I'll be making my own figures for the Poser & Daz Studio platforms. I'm well on my way to accomplishing this soon. Until then I'm on a massive learning scale with 3dmax, bryce, poser and D|S.

    What do you think?

    Pretty darn good ... believe me I have messed about with Poser enough that its not an easy thing to accomplish. One false move and you have a pile of rubble

      Looks nice I haven't used Daz/Poser software very much but I can vouch for the difficulty in making those models look like more than plastic... I don't know much about the renderer used here but if ambient occlusion (or an ambient occlusion pass, if it is as a separate pass, simply combine in photoshop usually with an overlay or multiply blend depending on the look you want, try the other blend modes for some interesting effects) is available then that's definately something to look into for increased relaism, it really helps give 3d models that 'Oooh I just wanna reach out and grab it off the screen' look. It's pretty simple to set this up in Maya/Max but as I said I'm unsure about Poser. Good luck with it

                I don't know about Daz but I have a rough time with Poser lighting most of the time.

                Thats when PS really becomes my friend

                  That's cool Kittie.

                  I did try a few clean ups on that pass, then I noticed hair collided with her ear and here eyes aren't exactly looking in the same direction. So I continued tweaking which is why the hair got flipped to the other side - it just fit better. Then I figured out some of the lighting tricks which made it look so much more natural.

                  Post work included: color and curve correction, shadow to teeth, eye balls, and a shadow where the hair drapes over the eyes. Highlight lips, and vest, and shadow where the vest lays against her skin. I've also brushed up the hair a bit and darkened her eyeshadow and eye lashes. And placed a shadow in the armpit area as she looked like there was an uplight pointed right there. Then added the background picking colors from her skin and hair.

                    It sure is fun and exasperating all at the same time isn't it
