You mean post render? Nothing structural, no. Just noise removal in PS (not so successful, needs more convergence time). I also added a little bit of not very successful motion blur on the few grains of sand falling from the funnel but that's it.

I like working in details. I like knowing that everything I want to see is there in its final form. I guess It's a sort of obsession. When I feel I have sufficient details in my scene, I can start exploring it. That's when it becomes magic. I can discover corners with pretty hidden secrets in it.

Those pictures are the result of that. These are only small details close ups of a much bigger illustration which is still a WIP but it's already hiding plenty of interesting little gems.

I'll post more as I go and I will share the scenes in the end.

I think that's amazing. It's a real testimony to Octane capabilities! Well done again.

My Dad did some of these actual sand paintings a few years back. You have captured the very feel of the process with the tools and patient worn hands. At least that is what I used to think when I watched my Dad do this. It was almost meditative and brain surgery at the same time.

Beautiful image and character... and technically... yep... that too.
