Mr. Snippy


B.Y.O.B. combined a photograph with CG and got a this great result.


maybe some of you know the webcomic "Romantically Apocalyptic".
Mr. Snippy is probably the character I like best, and I started to model his mask a few months back, but never used it until now. When I was at home during christmas, I made a photo of myself while walking in the woods, planning to use it as a background for the mask.

Rendered with LuxRender.
Rendering time: 5 minutes on an AMD 7970
Engine: Path OpenCL
Resolution: 3264x4326 (downscaled for this forum of course)
Postpro & Compositing: Photoshop

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
