:star::star::star:HAPPY BIRTHDAY :icondelya:!!!@#:star::star::star:

:party::batman: Here, have a biscuit! :biscuit: :strip:

I may not be able to be there to get you a gift, but I sure as hell can render something for ya! I hope this helps cheer you up :hug:

Special thanks to !AtomicStoney for drawing the character pose reference sketch, which you can see HERE. The stars are from `delya's EnterVoid Battle. And !Kwelude did me a huge favor and helped me find that font for the screaming stars. Everything else I did, concept and background and all.

I really had fun making this, and a lot of personal effort went into it. I really hope you like it `delya :aww:

~:heart: ~:heart:

Technical Details,</u>

Made in Maya 7, rendered with Mental Ray. Modeling was acheived with a combination of polygons (for the headm ears, and Chucks), NURBS (for the pants and beenie), and subdivision surface for everything else. Hair and tail were done with Maya 7's new hair systems. It was lit with a grey environment, one area light from the front'ish area, and one spotlight in the back for specular backlighting. Shaders for the skin were mental ray subsurface shaders. Almost all other shaders were Maya Ramp shaders. All texturing and the background were done in Photoshop. No need for fancy layers this time, all strait out of Mental Ray this way. NO EDITING. Except for the text, of course. And a special thanks to ~furryomnivore for editing the EXIF data on the image, LOL.

On to the pictures:

Here's a few viewport screenshots: The Whole Scene, NO LEFT HAND D:, OMG FLOATING TAIL, Pants N Shoes

Here's the entire lighting and camera setup: Secrets!

Here's a completely pointless BSP diagnostic render that you don't need to see: You don't even know what these do.

AND, here's a PNG version of the image, for highest possible quality: HERE

setstage Featured By Owner May 22, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
for the NURBS on the pants, did you do it for the shape or the texture, or bolth, and how did you get that bumpy texture?
DivineError Featured By Owner May 22, 2006
both, and also to get a curve to align on the nurbs surface to extrude the pants lingin that you see on the side.

shaders are top secret ;)
setstage Featured By Owner May 22, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ok, but what exactly are shaders, like a material (thats what its called in 3ds max) i think where you add patterns or like a ray trace to things? {note i really appreciate your help on these things, i do look stuff up on google but sometimes stupid shit comes up and its no help}
DivineError Featured By Owner May 22, 2006
shaders are like materials, yes
setstage Featured By Owner May 23, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
k, NOW i understand, about ever thing, what all the different styles of modeling are and everthing, I know you say look it up online, but its taken me since before i first asked you to find out google was pulling up nada, and most stuff I found out through asking, you and other people, so maybe you and some other good 3d artists should put up a defination of 3d with all the details. I know it'd help newbies, and allyou need to put in a coment is a link:D
yippeei Featured By Owner May 21, 2006

Awesome! How long did this render take? (to render, not to make)

Wow, sounds like a poem/rap.
DivineError Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2006
few hours
naiveamoeba Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2006
Bloody hell. What do you do during that time? I get bored during a 3 minute render... :S

Also must use up a hell of a lot of your CPU..
Zareste Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2006
Excellent, plus the star makes her invincible for a few seconds
