Background tests

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 30, 2015, In : wip 
Hey all!

Recently, I was prompted by GOD to look into making stronger backgrounds for toon objects and that meant higher sample rates and smooth shading - none of these are good for toon-shading, because they all produce smooth colors and areas, not hard ones, but through about an afternoon's scene building and a night's compositing, HE helped me get it done, so now you can get a result like this:


Now, this may not look like much, because it seems like a silly example, but you have to look beyo...

Theme:

Covet

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21

"Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." Proverbs 30:6
