Grass Test-Render (Maya) by GaryMotherPuckingOak
Grass Test-Render (Maya)
Messing with grass in the Fur tab in Maya. Never touched the stuff before, and it makes for some pretty cool effects.
Created in Autodesk Maya 2014. Physical Sun and Sky lighting. Clouds were created by placing a cloud shader in the transparency channel in a lambert material.

Hi guys,

I got back from my trip to Portland on Wednesday. I'm getting a lot of good criticism about the Venom Snake wall, some dude turned into a shirt even. I'll make a Kazuhira Miller one hopefully soon to go along with it. Other than that I might return to some Xenoblade Chronicles walls.

Anyway, I'm taking requests now so if you want to suggest something, please do.

Are you the OP of this thread who created "The Great Console Race" images and script? If so, I just wanted to tell you personally that I loved it and thought you did a great job. I found it through a Vimeo version that Lifeliketextube made.

Nope! Close though, I was the OP to the E3 Console Games thread. Someone did the Great Console race literally one day after my thread. There was a video of that being made but development has stopped :(

What was the thread number of the "E3 Console Games" thread?

You've inspired me, started working on a new Spongebob /v/ thread. Doing the writing now to get the jokes done, I'll probably make the thread tomorrow if I get the artwork done in time.

How do you go about making your wallpapers in Illustrator?
I haven't used IL for long and was wondering how these are created.

What I do is open Illustrator, open my source image in a 1920 x 1080 window and then duplicate the image layer. The top layer is what I use as a reference, but the bottom layer is what I actually work on.

With the bottom layer selected, I take samples of color from the image that I want to use as the base. Then I do a fine outline with the Pen tool, no stroke, but the fill being the color I selected. The rest is basically repeat with the different colors of the object. It's time consuming work, but fun. If you wind up selecting the top layer and start working on it, you'll know since it becomes visible. I generally hide all vector work until the fine details need to be done such as connecting surfaces. Master the Pen tool, that's all I can really say.

Then I just save the image via "save for web" as a PNG since JPG will have artifacts.

Did you do any other Persona Wallpapers? I had a Souji one that looked like your art style that I found on tumblr. I found you while looking for it, but it's not here. Not sure if there was just another person who did minimalist designs or if you have some unposted, but I'd love to know.

The only one's that I have made are in the Gallery. I'm yet to make some more. The person you are talking about is my friend Orpheus since he was the one who made this: [link]

I haven't made any more P4/P3 walls in a long time. But keep checking for more later on.

That is the one I was looking for! Thank you so much.
