2001 by leventep 2001 by leventep
Another 3D project(except for guy, he is painted/collaged in). Aiming to do high realism level 3d projects. This one is from Kubricks 2001. Few things i am trying to achieve:

1.Only do Low poly meshes, get maximum render quality. "Put in least get out most"
2. treat comp trickery carefully and avoid typical "CGI-FX". This is more about how glow is treated. the tricks are power but i feel needs to be treated in a careful manner so it doesnt distract from story/frame. Lensflares, sun-blow out, glows etc etc
3. Force the 3d renders to be 95% final looking and low rendertime for 3K-4K
4. Push texturing to achive highest and pixel level scrutiny finish. Avoid "typical bump effect"
5.Explore camera composition limitations. With this one, Kubrick nailed the composition dead on in his epic film. As i moved camera around none was as strong as this one.which is based exactly on movie.
6. No matter the tools, the ultimate goal is always story and emotions, push everything that emphasizes it and avoid bits that distracts!

modelled in Maya 2015, rendered with Octane Plugin.The character is collaged/painted in.

I really like this piece! I also like the quote "Put in least get out most". I'm going to use this as my mantra from now on. This applies to my work too as a story artist in animation! :D

The guy was taken from a screenshot from the film. The edges make it obvious.
Please don't false advertise like that.
Good work on the rest of it though.

cheers dude, yeah he is actually having difficulty walking here. Kind of like walking on a line. Keeping that balance putting the feet in front, plus using his hand to keep the balance.

wanted to post some 3d viewport stuff but it doesnt allow me here :(

at 1st look, took it as a screen grab from the movie. One thing though what's with the feet it almost look it's rotated 180 degrees back, or maybe it's just me
