NEW : Octane featured on the AREA with "Shades of Dambu"

Howdy folks!

It's always inspiring for us to see outstanding 3D art rendered with Octane. It's even more inspiring when that art is picked up by other CG centered websites. The AREA just posted a terrific interview with Hugues Giboire (ElBloko on the forum), the artist behind the very impressive "Shades of Dambu" and an in-depth tutorial on his workflow.

You can read the full tutorial and interview here:

A Lifelike Portrait: Breaking Down Photorealism (OctaneRender tutorial)

Interview with Hugues Giboire

A short snippet from the tutorial:

If it had to be photorealistic, then I needed to integrate a really good rendering engine into to my toolbelt. I chose a GPU-based unbiased renderer for that task. Octane Render is a small, easy to learn software but it has deep possibilities that are still growing. Most importantly, it allows me to easily and steadily move towards my own vision without losing it; I use it in a repeat fashion from the beginning to the end of the process to constantly preview that my work is going in the right direction. The best of all is that Octane Render's speed of convergence allow for a near-real-time creation process. As with painting or drawing, the immediacy of the results allows for an immediate reaction. It then falls to trusting that an anomaly should be corrected, making the change, and returning to reach the next level of detail.

P.S. ElBloko posted some WIP images of a brand new project today

Cheers!

That is such an inspiring project! It's both very rich and deep.

I often browse through 3D World and 3D Arts magazines and I just don't see Octane breaking through the 'usual suspects' line (except in relation to anything cloud related). It's probably just a question of time but once more features are added to Octane, it will certainly achieve greater adoption and consequently see more press.

More from Hugues! More from Octane!

YAY! That's me! Thanks guys! I'm very flattered.

In fact, I have been asked from Autodesk to create a new illustration using the same pipeline as well as several other tutorials covering the creation process mostly from a technical standpoint this time. There will be a lot more coverage of how I use Octane in there. I've only worked with the standalone version so far but I've been asked to procure the Maya plugin which is more adequate for their own demonstration purposes. Do I get a rebate for free advertisement? :mrgreen:

No?

OK, free fingertip then.

Yikes! I couldn't tell if that fingertip was a photo or not until I saw it at the end of your tutorial. Looking forward to your next work.
