For the ladies, I'm sorry but guys just don't do it for me, if you know what I mean. Still  there is always room for more to learn to do this sort of stuff. It does have a steep learning curve, fair warning.

If you have a computer farm, it can even be animated. But those are usually far beyond the typical home computer abilities in any reasonable time frame.

This stuff is like a movie set. You have the models, the stage, the scenery, lights, cameras; well you get the idea.

I called this one 'Oh Shit' because that would have been my reaction.

 It's very futuristic, I like it. I'd like to know: here also everything is 100% artificial? What I wonder is about the sky/clouds -- are they from some sky photograph, or you made them all via the software?

Absolutely, 100% of what you see does not exist in real life. Every bit of it is computer made. If you look very closely you will see one of my screwups in the wave. But I have to call your attention to it or you wouldn't notice it.

There are limitations with what you have to work with. In making this image all is not as it seems. Notice the crest of the wave. Look very, very, closely, and you will see faintly a long extended oval, where the wave at the crest has a different look to it. The draw back here is that you have to have something to put the texture on so that water looks like water and not like tree bark. The oval is from a circle that has been tilted and stretched to fit right there at the crest. You can see the oval if you look very closely.

Wasn't all that happy with this one. It is what it is.

I guess everything is completely artificial as usual in your art works? The grass and the flowers are... just... hard to believe they're unreal... Astonishing! :o

Absolutely 100% correct. Nothing you see in the image is real. You will notice in the screenshot at the bottom, is a render near finished. It lists the time remaining, screen resolution it is rendering at, and the amount of polygons in this particular scene that make up what looks to be grass, trees, and other items in the image. From time to time I include these for two purposes. One is that it ensures if I get close in an image so it fools the eye, you can tell it's not real; it's CGI. The other is in it's own way it verifies I was the artist as that is the only one who will have that info. So it wasn't taken from someone else's work as they would not display that info in the image.

This is my attempt to create the look of an old ancient piece of pipe. It was made totally in a photoeditor for the image and then textured on to a primitive cylinder in a 3D program. The cylinder gives it the pipe effect and before it was done that way was just a flat image.

The image is a series of layers, each doctored to create this particular effect.

How long does it take
« Reply #70 on: March 06, 2016, 12:40:30 AM »
It looks exactly as an old ancient piece of pipe. How long does it take to complete an image as the one with the fence, the woman and "The War of the Worlds" thing above?  :)

Sometimes you get inspired and it takes a couple of days, sometimes it takes weeks. This sort of stuff eats time like you would not believe. A good part of it depends on your abilities, knowledge, and skill, as to how deep into this sort of stuff you can go. That in turn determines how long it takes. For every image you have been shown in this thread are probably 4 or 5 I didn't save. I don't usually save those I am not happy with the outcome of.

Some of my early ones you can see a distinct lack of that knowledge displayed in the appearance of the image. You never learn it all. You can get better than you were but you will never reach the end of knowing it all. (or at least I won't) The complexity of each program is enormous. I may swap an image between two to five different graphics programs to get the desired effects. Sometimes they come out right, sometimes they don't. Sometimes just the lighting setup is enough to make or break an image. Do you use an environmental light like the sun as your main lighting, or do you use the 3 point standard photograph illumination? How wide is the light to be if you use a pin point light? Where should  it start illumination and where should it end? Should it cast shadows? Should it be another color other than white? Should it be a pin point light, a light box, a spot light, or a battery of them? How strong should the light source be? Should you use gel filters or not? Where should you place them? All of this only deals with the light source to illuminate the scene. There's cameras, pose, the scene set up, just to name a few, and every one of them just as complicated as the lights, if not more.

Here is one I didn't do well. It's over lit, the posing is poor, the whole thing doesn't fool the eye at all. In my eyes it is a total failure beyond the learning experience.

 At once I noticed this one is like 'not Mojo's art', but I suppose that now when you're more skillful, you may edit/re-do this and your old images? Or once done it's not easy to be improved anymore? (Probably a lame question, but I hope it's a useful question as far as we're trying here to enjoy and to educate and/or learn at the same time. :) )

Once I have created something, I never save anything beyond the images. Even the images are sizable taking sometime up to 10 megs just for the original image.

It simply takes too much data space to store multitudes of these on the hard drive. So you make your thing, delete the all the program's data in each graphics program and start again with something else. There's not a lot you can do image wise with the image other than photoedit. It takes the data in the graphics programs to change it. The data files for each image, in each program are usually sizable.

Most of the time it isn't worth the effort.
