A render I made this afternoon.
A little too complex to grace the pages of the almighty 'simple renders' thread, so he had to start his own.
Scene comprised of exactly:
2 x plane primitives.
1 x teapot.

Simple and interesting. About the little details all over, let me guess, greeble? :P Nonetheless, not too bad for something simple-ish.

awesome greeble work
27-07-2008, 11:40 PM
yes, obviously greeble. :D
Good job! I think the greebled part could use some more varying texture, though.
I like the fog, was it rendered or photoshopped? And there is a brighter stripe on the reflection, from the teapot's handle toward the lower left corner; I was wondering where it comes from.

Yeah, who doesn't love greeble? The best plugin ever.
Gnome, the reflection is actually light, and was from the sun. It looks out of place due to the additional atmospherics I added, and shouldn't be so sharp.
The fog is rendered as a 'volume fog' effect.
Only minimal post work in this render. (Curve adjustment and a little diffuse glow & noise).
Thanks for your comments guys!

Great Atmosphere, but I don't understand what kind of material is the "ground"...
Is it water? Anyway I quote Gnome...
What did You used for render it? Mental Ray or Vray?

nice.. love the atmosphere ;)
but the water needs a bit to work on, a heavy fog effect in it will do the trick since it's a waste area, and some fractal noise for the reflection surface..

very interesting I like your idea:)

The 'water' material could use some work. I agree.
There is a smoke map as the reflection and colour properties. There is no transparancy, only a reflection map with some fresnel falloff.
I would also like to dirty this scene up a bit, especially around the greeble elements.
I didn't spend a lot of time on it to be honest. It was thrown together in about 5 minutes.
I'll come back to it definately at some point, and try to enhance it a little.
Thanks again fellas!

Simple but very very artistic. Nice greebling :smug:
You could use sand or mud instead of water. the water is not looking as water.

great idea but the render is still a little noisy...

Mental Ray or Vray?
I'm guessing mental ray.:???:

The water. I'm not exactly sure if it is water or not. It's just some kind of sludge.
The noise was added in post, as the original looked a bit too clean.
