Re: Creative Portraits: The Fisherman

Great job Brad, love the background too. However I think I liked his hair "messed up"

...and now for something completely different

Like I had said way back at the top of this thread, this image is great for testing new things.

This is a "cross-platform" 2D / 3D render - looks promising!

Oh god Rô, that's incredible, looks like he's lifting his head from a pool of water.
I know I will regret asking this but "how'd you do that?"

I have a "distance" map of a face generated in Poser - a greyscale image that represents the "height" at each point. i.e. The nose is bright, the ears are dark.
I adjusted this map to fit the fisherman image.
Mixed in a bit of a high-pass layer to get some details (like in the hair).
Painted other bits to the required "height" value , like the cigarette to white.

Rendered in Poser on a flat square prop, with the 2-D image as the diffuse colour and the "height" map as the displacement.

Basically that's it!
Ain't easy, but it's fun.

Re: Creative Portraits: The Fisherman

Nice to see this thread resurrected. I think my earlier submission was one of my first on RP, so it's sort of interesting (to me, at least) to see how my approach has changed. These are just two of several attempts I made in Artweaver, with varying levels of success.
