Driven by the light by ThierryCravatte Driven by the light by ThierryCravatte
I found this great vehicle and wanted to give it a try. I did a bit of 'modeling' with a few primitives in daz for the environment and this came out. Nothing exceptional, but I was pleased with the overall feel. Hope you'll like it too ...

As usual, posed and set up in Daz Studio. Materials tweaking, lighting and rendering in Octane Render.
I used meshlihgts and a HDRI map for lighting and pathtracing kernel. Postwork in Gimp for resizing and signature only.

Models used :

Flynn's Light Cycle (free at scifi-meshes.com)
Victoria 4 (Daz3D)
Victoria 4.2 Bodysuit (the3dwizard/Out of Touch)
Sykla Scout for V4 and M4 (Orestes Graphics)

Thanks for viewing and taking time to leave a comment.
Have a great time.

Many thanks too for your comments and faves on my previous image.

This is amazing!! Nice setting and even the background wall looks pretty sweet.

Thank you for posting what was used here. I MUST have that light cycle!!  :P

Looking at your other work I can see that Octane is a well made render engine. I currently use Reality for Poser but when I venture over to Maya or 3ds Max, I may just invest in Octane.

Thank you very much for your kind comment !

Octane is nice and pleasant to use (even if it is mising some useful features, but it is still under developement) and, most of all, it is fast !!

May I ask how long it took to render this? I use Reality > LuxRender and it takes about 9+/- hours to get a really good render. They say the longer it bakes the better.

ThierryCravatte Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't remeber exactly how long it took, but It was certainly quite long because of the multiple light sources. I usually let the rendering run overnight. I'd say this render took certainly +/- 10 hours (but it was on my old 460 GTX ...).
That's right, the longer the better, but when it reaches a certain point, the gain in quality becomes unnoticeable.

What kind of preference did you use to get this kind of white and blue? (surfaces)
Reply
:iconthierrycravatte:
ThierryCravatte Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank tou !

If I remeber correctly, the white was just the 'white paint' from the octane's liveDB and the blue was a diffuse material, with an emission node set to 'texture emission' with a blueish distribution. The power was set rather low not to have too much reflections. Hope that helps ;)

Well i new to this 3d art. And the same thing goes for daz3d.
I only know what octane is
:D (Big Grin) 
emission node set to texture emission really dont know what that is
:o (Eek) 
But its a learning proces for me. 
Do you know how to get the same effects with the render of daz3d?
And thank you verry much for trying to help, If only i know more

Oooops, sorry, I thought you were an octane user ...

In Octane, you have the possibility to turn any material into a 'light' (an light emitting material). So that's how I did for the 'glowing blue' on this image.

It's difficult for me to give you advices about the daz internal renderer because I don't use it (I use octane instead). But I'm sure you will find talented arrtists using Daz only that will help you much better that I could do.

Keep on the good work and soon I will ask you tricks and tips ;)

Hi Kemal, Good to see you here !
I'm not very active on Renderosity any more at the moment, because I think that the moderators are a bit too 'close minded' ... Much more freedom here on D.A.
I hope you will post here too ...

Hi Thierry;
I'm new at deviantart and I'm trying to learn how to use this complex site!:-)Because of that my answer is a bit belated my friend sorry:-)As for the Renderosity,I agree to you,also I think site working very slow lately!When I joined to rendo there were over 8000 artists!But Nowadays I can see only 1500-200 artist on line!?? What happens to other people? where they go???that Rating system or that unfair "Chart" system could have been caused rage the people to leave, I don't know?,But this is sad,Why people try to kill this kind of art site?Destroying are always easy,but building some good things are always hard!:-(
Well.. I'm started to upload my previous renderosity works to deviantart,from now on,I'll try trying to build a synchronization between the two sites...It's gonna be hard for me because of my low internet connection speed but I hope you can watch and support me in here too:-)Hope to see you again in here and rendo my friend
take car and Have great week
Your friend
Kemal

Hi kemal,

It will certainly take you a while to get used to this site, but it worth the perseverence, because it is really great. The people here are really openminded and all the categories of digital (or traditional) art are equally considerated. The system of group is very useful and interessant to give visibility to your work.
I'm happy you made the switch and I added you to my watch list so i'm sure not to miss one of your posts.

Thierry

Thank you my friend,Finding old friends in a new art site better than finding a gold mine:-) I'm not totally leave from rendo but some kind of absurdities are very boring lately!For now I will just upload my previous works in here, but the new renders will follow them of course:-) Thank you again for your support and friendship,Hope to see you soon:-)

I have question.
While I do realize that Lightcycles exist in a digital world, I've always wondered how they move. Do they simply glide over the ground? Or is there something else in the programming of their physics that makes em do something super cool?
Reply
:iconthierrycravatte:
ThierryCravatte Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Of course there is something else! It relates to quantum physics and decomposition of light into its basic components. But I'm sure you don't expect me to reveal such fantastic secrets, do you ? ;)

I hope the credit on the text was okay, and if not, tell me, I'll change it. You really desserve tons of congratz for modeling such a great vehicle, and for giving it for free !!!!

I'm so impressed that I forgot to thank you, I really appreciate your kind comment and support, I'm really honored by your interest on my work !!! :squee:

Thanks for the tip, i'm gonna try this ;)
