Lightwave 2018 & NETERS II

output_QdCXRo

But for the fact that I put the Cloud Tiger in the NETERS universe, I could just as easily place them as the dominant life form from Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

Anyway, I've gotten better renders using Blender. I have to figure out how to get a 'smother' model. Still learning cel shading and how to work the shadows from the cel. I can go with three; as in the above gif ...

Or go with one as in the above pic. Basically a medium shadow on the bottom.

Composite. Background done in Cheetah 3D. The above final render done in Lightwave 2018.

Getting that look I want...

... continued from yesterday. I noticed by playing around with the light intensity, I was able to get the look I want in the final render, but I was flying blind in the display window. Got some help from one of the vets over at the NewTek/LightWave forum...

Bingo. By using LWs VPR, I'm able to make my adjustments in real time, as well as get that final rendered look that I want. Damn ... thought I was done with LightWave. Maybe not ...

Lightwave 2018 & NETERS

lw4

Haven't used LightWave 3D in years. At least not as a primary application. I downloaded the newest version today; 30 day free trial, and after fighting with unpacking it, I was able to get a quick render in. Had to play around with the settings, but finally achieved a render where the textures showed up.

The object file is wonky in LW, but works well in Blender and Cheetah 3D. I'd also like my renders to look like the preview in the main window.

Forgot to mention, I download LW on my laptop. Renders fast though. No lag time when moving things around, so all good there.

lw2

Gonna keep playing with the settings. See if I can achieve the same look and 'feel' from the main display window. If not, will not be upgrading.

I need to find time for this ...

I'm finally on the back end of getting my second novel out. See
Daathrekh. I'm working hard on book 3, but I'm feeling compelled to step back into the Neters universe. That means relearning 3D software and writing comic scripts, etc.

Left off on trying to re-design Ma'atan Code uniforms. Gotta build mostly everything from the ground up ... Blender or Cheetah 3D, with either Hexagon or silo. That means time away from writing my 3rd book. Can it be done? Should it be?

I'm finding that using applications that are intuitive to my brain, are what works best for me. No longer tripping off of the software that is deemed popular, etc. Simplier is better.

Not a fan of creating in different genres. Writing novels is different from doing comics. Hence the illustrated novel format.
