I am taking a course at Schoolism. The focus of the course is to develop yourself as an artist in all areas, so the course will touch on Characters, Environments, and Props.
This is the 1st assigment, which was to create 3 characters in a 3 quarter view.

I just wrapped this one up. I had made the buildings a while back, but the image lacked an interesting hook. I added these creepy pods and it did do the trick. This one was rendered in the very latest release of Maxwell Studio which is the stand alone aspect of Maxwell Render. I had to learn the package, and while it does have its quirks, I think I prefer it over the 3DS Max integrated Maxwell... If that makes sense.
The lighting came together just as I had envisioned, but please let me know if you think it could be better.

This is a piece I created using Maxwell Render, 3ds Max, Advanced Painter, and Photoshop. The sky image is part of an acrylic painting. It is meant to be a spooky dwelling place for some alien life form.
Maxwell Render is a program that has a strength for rendering geometry. For this piece, I took advantage of that and tried to use simple, but heavy geometry. Advanced painter allowed me to add all the straws, sticks and flowers quickly and easily. If you look closely you'll notice how simple the geometry actually is.
