    I have found some time today to work a bit on my shading.

    Here is the result. Still not perfect but I am happy for today (tomorrow I will hate it for sure).

    Software used: Maya, xGen, Redshift, Fusion (no Nuke license free at the moment).  Rendertime was about 20 minutes.

    Here are my images. 3D rendering, comped version, 3D vs comp and my extreme complex shader tree and fusion nodegraph 🙂

    Here is my latest try, wish i had more time ! >First one



    Final composite, raw render and materials.

    I switched from AlShader to a basic VrayMtl on which i played a lot with the fog multiplier/bias,the refraction glossiness and the translucency to get more light through than what i could get with SSS. I also merged this material with another layer of blurred reflection to get the diffused specular effect. I forgot to add the third layer to get a clearer material on the broken part but it didn’t really work better than on this render 🙂 It seems i also forgot to check on a few maps on the main shader but they didn’t have much effect either.

    The hair is still 3DS Max Hair&Fur, and some larger hairs spread on PFlow with a refractive shader.


    I probably won’t have time later today to go back and make some changes so this it ! 😀

    Here is my raw and final comped render. I used C4d and Aronold 2.0.  Did some minor color adjustments and added a iris blur in photoshop.

    Jeez, this was a **** hard one to judge! So many entries, and so many of them really quite good!


    Unfortunately our vote from Henning (@ DNEG) didn’t make it in time – he’s a busy guy.

    This means @thobani gets sent a shadersxyz shirt! Please send me your address dude, nice work!


    To the other finalists, it was SUPER hard to decide, as you can tell from the different top 3’s of us all.


    I’d like to especially thank all other contestants, because participating, learning and sharing really are at the roots of this website and are way more important than winning the shirt!
